Fable 2 DLC: Knothole Island

Fable 2 Knothole Island Xbox 360 Downloadable ContentAs most fans of Fable 2 already know, the new downloadable island has been available for a little while now. However, I hadn’t had time to post about it yet! Here’s some of the main points about the game for those still considering the purchase…

Is it worth buying Fable 2 again if you have already sold it?
If you have already sold your copy of the game due to completion or boredom, I doubt you will find this new addon worthwhile. The island’s three quests are pretty short, amounting to only a couple of hours gameplay.

How easy are the achievements?
Very easy. Knothole Island comes with 100 new obtainable gamerscore points, split between 3 achievements. The first requires completion of the main quest line whilst the other two are collectible based.

Is there any replay value in Knothole Island?
Not really. The island has a couple of shops, but nothing that really stands out. The island itself is fairly small and the novelty of seasons can wear off fairly quickly.

Is Knothole Island DLC worth the 800 points?
Whilst my post may sound fairly negative at the moment I would have to say that this is worth the 800 points. I can see that this addon took time to develop, and I’d really love to see more Fable 2 DLC in the future. I really like Knothole Glade in the original game so I was glad to see it’s return in Fable 2.

What does the Knothole Island DLC contain?

  • A New Island To Explore (obviously)
  • 3 New Quests
  • New Clothing Items
  • New Potions
  • New Weapons
  • A Unique Shop

Should I buy the Knothole Island DLC?
Chances are that if you are reading this blog post, you are interested in Fable 2. So yes, if you enjoy Fable 2 even half as much as I do, I highly recommend you purchase this addon. It is quite a small addon, but it is definitely an experience I enjoyed.

My first games console was the Mega Drive and I've been in love with video games ever since. Over the years I've owned many systems, which I hope to cover in the future. Most of the things I write and do videos about is considered "retro", but I do enjoy playing my Xbox One and PS4 as well...
