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.
