    I agree, I've bought it simply because I can't afford the game until after its out, so therefor I wont be able to get it free. The sames are ridiculously balanced so that you lose, and have autofired my way through more spinnerbox tournaments than I can remember, never winning! (And this is a game of pure luck nothing more may I add.)

    I just cant really play the game, its more to me like DLC exclusive items and gold for fable 2 that you have to work for...

    I don't like pre-ordering games, so I bought it too thinking it would be a fun game to play whilst waiting for Fable 2. I actually felt angry playing this game and that doesn't happen very often.

    Just google for the glitch on the card based one, actually makes it winnable for the tournaments

    It should have been free. Even then I can't see many people playing it.

    I got it for 3 reasons:
    1. it was cheap for me (I get 4200 point cards at less than 2100 point card price at work)
    2. I had nothing better to do
    3. I will have to wait a while before I get Fable 2 (employees don't get priority on games and have to wait for mainstream channels to be fully satisfied before we can get them)

    So it made sense for me, that and I enjoy mindless crap

    Yeah but you could have got any of the brilliant 800pt games and they would have also been cheap.

    2. I had nothing better to do

    Download a good game from XBLA then, and you are laughing.

    Yeah I'm working on spending the points I can get my grubby little mitts on, bionic commando next (after Baird, it's a bit of a headfunk but a good game) and trying to catch up with a guy at work with a huge gamerscore

    Re: Reviews - Fable II Pub Games - Xbox 360

    i got this also just to give me a start on the game when it comes out

    was pleased to get all achievements.

    but then fuming when i got to 200k cash and found out that some people are using an exploit to get millions in cash for the game

    would have saved me hours of play on a slightly annoying game

    Re: Reviews - Fable II Pub Games - Xbox 360

    Every review I've read of this game has been the same as Stevens - this game is terrible, do not buy it.

    You peeps who did - do you not read reviews or is it the lure of Fable II that sucked you in like suckers to a giant sucker killing machine?

    HEXUS - Take a tip from me: Don't buy this game, you'll be bitterly disappointed.
    IGN - Spoiler alert: This game is not worth $10.
    GameSpot - One dull, mindless game.

    Anyway chaps, Castle Crashers was out yesterday, its 1200pts but it is loads of fun. Try that if you get too depressed by this game.

    would say about 15 hours to get all the achievements 20 hours to get back in the black financially,

    then found out about the glitch.

    and STEWART wouldn't have cared if it got rated worst xbla game ever (it probably will) still would have had to get it for the 15 unlocks and the chance to go into fable 2 with a little nest egg to keep the wives happy.

    Unlocks?

    Achievements!

    Well yeah, but good games come with achievements as well, and playing through crap just to get some achievement points seems a bit pointless.

    Ah, ok. Lets hope Fable II is actually good when it comes out now then.

    I notice Too Human came out recently, and completely failed to live up to the hype, and score 5-6 out of 10 marks. A big, fat, ginger faced disappointment.
