    A game should never be released with so many game ending glitches. What you'll see listed in the bug fixes isn't even all of them. They don't mention the one I encountered, for example. Upon reaching the top of Brightwood Tower your game crashes and the entire file becomes corrupt and unplayable. You have no choice but to restart the game from the beginning.

    I conversed with a developer from Lionhead a multitude of times in order to help them eliminate the glitch that I (and many others) were encountering. There's a strong possibility it was a disc pressing issue. But that was never confirmed. I got a new copy of the disc and it worked fine, but again, that could be a coincidence.

    I am slightly miffed that the bug I and hundreds of others encountered either hasn't been fixed or was relegated to "Additional unspecified fixes". We may never know if it was patched.

    Sounds like I made the right choice playing Fallout3 first - my Fable II is still in the shrink wrap.

    By the time I've finished Fallout3 (or got bored with it) then Fable II might be in a more playable state. [​IMG]
