The Lionhead bossman thanks the press for their "patience and belief" when diving in to review Fable II.
He understands it was difficult given the scope of the world saying it "must have been one of the hardest games to review." He loved the variety in characters too.
The Xbox 360 exclusive is sporting a metacritic score of 89% which is a strong position for any videogame to achieve.
"Fable II must have been one of the hardest games to review. The world is so big and the story and gameplay are enormous. How reviewers manage to distil such an experience into a few pages is incredible," Molyneux told .
"I found myself becoming incredibly emotional as I read peoples reviews and saw how differently the reviewers were reacting to Fable 2. Some reviewers played good, others evil some enjoyed the combat more than the story. Some ended up rich and others poor and it's the sheer variety in how reviewers have played the game which has struck us most."
"I'd like to say a personal thank you to every reviewer out there for their patience and belief."
Fable II will finally be available in Europe tomorrow while our brothers across the Atlantic have already been enjoying the adventure since Tuesday.
