I wouldn't say hack'n'slash persay, but that could be because I use will (magic) more than melee itself. Well, it's freeform yeah, you can time your attacks whenever you want, and so do the enemies.

Here's an example of the Fable 3 in-game play:

0:38 is a good example. There are a ton new things and Peter thinks Fable 2 was "crap" (in a certain way, especially the GUI).

The thing they have to fix the previous fable's is magic. In fable one it was a little like oblivion with shortcuts on the d-pad. Fable 2 was awkward for my liking. Especially as most spells had different effects at level 1 charge but you could only use one spell to that slot...

Even then I hope they fix the legendary weapons. On fable 2 once you get the daichi and the massive...shotgun thingy nothing beats them.

I didn't play any of the previous Fable games (no X-box) so I'm not sure about this one. The trailer looks nice, although it doesn't seem to have much to do with the game (which is too bad).

With the $130 price tag here, I don't think the Collector's Edition is worth it. The second game's CE wasn't too bad. Same price as the game, not much extra though. But $130 is too much for ingame items and a bunch of trading cards that would just gather dust for me. If it included a figurine or a small novel, the price would be acceptable. But for some fancy lines of coding and a stack of paper? No.

That said, the game looks promising to me.

Fable 2 was a lot of fun for a casual player. Along with what you would expect of an RPG, you could buy/sell property in towns and charge rent for homes and set a standard markup for shops you purchase. You could marry a wife/husband/partner (same sex is allowed) or have multiple spouses. Armor didn't really provide any stats, so you could put on items that you felt looked good rather then a mixup of ones that had good stats but made you look ugly as sin. There are jobs to earn money such as hammering out weapons as a blacksmith, serving drinks as a bartender or being a lumberjack.

You also had the Good/Evil setting that made you look either unchanged (good) or your skin darkens through the shades of red until it's almost black and you get horns. It's all in how you interact with people and if you decide to go on a genocidal rampage through a town or not. People tend to frown on you for killing their family for instance (no, you can't kill children.)

Sounds like a fun game, although after that trailer I feel much more like playing some sort of action jump'n'run involving a chicken.

To be honest i think that fable is the best RPG in terms of combat system. It's not turn based like KOTOR and it's not anything like oblvion. theres much more freedom, you can roll, time your attacks better with good moverbility etc

Well at least Fable 3 has good improvement in combat sounds. I was kinda on the "wtf" edge with Fable 1 video there...
