I picked this game up yesterday and played it for about three hours. Unfortunately I was hit by a bug that froze and ruined the save file. Apparently this is happening to a lot of players. Also when I load the menu screen the system lags something horrible. The load times are atrocious. Did anyone else buy this and have you had the same problems???

It has been a little buggy, but nothing terrible. I keep getting the prompt to buy new furniture for my house.

So, Fable II promised online co-op in all the previews. However, they conveniently left out a few details. When you play co-op with someone only the host gets to play as their character. The other person plays as a generic henchman. With so much emphasis placed on character creation this negates the fun of playing co-op. Needless to say the fans are pissed. On the official Lionhead message board a thread was started about all of this. The official response?



(you can read it here: Click Here (community.lionhead.com)

To recap:
Co-op sucks and Lionhead doesn't care and wants you to quit whining.

I suppose I could have done a little more research on the matter but all of the reviews I read didn't have access to the online co-op because it wasn't finished until release day.

I'm thinking I should have just waited for Fallout 3.

I plan on getting my hands on Fallout 3 too, but honestly the multiplayer isn't that bad. It's not great, but for a change of pace to allow some multiplayer interaction it's fine. Not quite what I was expecting when I first started hearing about the game, but it's fine.

The game on the whole is incredible. I have absolutely no complaints, and believe that most of the complaints I have heard so far are trivial and probably getting changed via update later. I've hit plenty of glitches and bugs, but nothing so terrible that it deletes my save file or even made the game unplayable. At worst, I was prompted to buy new furniture indefinitely until I did, even after I divorced twice.

I don't see what all the fuss is concerning the multiplayer. First, there isn't a whole lot of customization to your character, just the clothes that you wear and even those don't offer any actual armor, they're just for looks. And the whole game is based around the fact that your character is THE hero, so I don't get the uproar over being a henchman.

They shouldn't be calling it multi-player if it is really only cooperative. I mean it just sucks to have to pick who gets to host as hero and who has to be the henchman. There are going to be skads of 15 year old boys coming to virtual blows (or real ones). It really isn't a big deal, but it wasn't what people thought they were getting.

I really think they could have handled this better. I don't mean changing the game design, I just mean they should have set expectations better and explained the reasons.
