Zeo Fable Legends: Beta Review

***Disclaimer, this is the CLOSED BETA****  This is not a release candidate.


Verdict: Do not buy as is.  Wait.


Review:  The graphics are mind blowing amazing, too bad that's all they've done so far.

Complaint 1:  Quests are ONLY multiplayer ATM, which is bad because everyone's a newb (except those that do nothing but play when the grid is open) and this is a completely new system.  All the characters are damn weak, enemies are WAY over powered, and you are randomly assigned teams, which screws crap up.  You do NOT get a choice as to whether or not to join a team, you get thrown on a team as soon as you choose a quest OR stumble into one.  The is little to no single player content.

Complaint 2:  Very limited character selection, and characters are very shallow.  The current non muscle bound human male character is extremely "gay" and extraordinarily weak, even for the all the characters being weak.

Complaint 3: This is not Fable. There is no default hero/heroine that you customize an identify with.   The closest comparison I can make is  Castlevaina Lords of Shadow, failing that Dragon Age Inquisition.  It doesn't feel like Albion.  The controls are not Fable, the landscape is not Albion.  The character interactions are not Albion.

Summary:

Graphics 10/10
Story/Plot 0/10
game play 5/10
Controls 5/10  Controls work, but are  like Lords of Shadow, needlessly complicated.
"Fableness": 0/10
