Eurogamer has awarded Lionhead’s Fable II 10/10. Peter Molyneux said previously that this game will define his position in the industry, so a 10/10 isn’t bad start, you could say.

From the review:

Fable II’s generous and forgiving template isn’t one that many games choose to follow, but it proves convincingly that if you’re clever enough, you can create a consistent challenge without resorting to mindless punishment, and you can craft a sharply told story that still has room for the player to express themselves within. Inclusive and often thought-provoking, this is a daring portrait of a game-world with all the failure cut out, and it’s hard not to love a game that loves you so much in return. Fable II will charm you, thrill you, and leave you very, very happy.

Now go read the full thing.

Update: OXM has given the game, 8/10, GamesRadar says 9/10, as has StrategyInformer. CVG reckons it’s worth a 9.2 and says 9/10 too. Last but not least, IGN has awarded the game a formidable 9.5/10.

The rest will be over at Metacritic in due course.
