Fable: The Journey: Xbox 360 (Kinect required)

Have your say

IT’S probably fair to describe the Fable franchise as a bit of a Marmite experience – you either love it or hate it.

This time round, you’ll turn to marvellous magic as your deadly weapon while defending the fate of Albion, fortified by the physical control mechanics of the Xbox 360’s Kinect technology.

Embarking on a perilous quest to unmask the evil that threatens the land, the game thrusts you into a role-playing experience with a host of familiar faces and foes.

What does represent an advance into new territory for the series, though, is the brilliantly-constructed motion controls, which will have you feeling like Harry Potter without the need to graduate from Hogwarts. Spell-casting is a dream, while The Journey also represents the best storyline yet for the series, and relaxed country cart-rides perfectly intersperse the fervent wand flicks and fist-fights that will ensure a rip-roaring ride through this fabulous fantasy world.
