Thief - Gamescom 2013 Uprising Trailer
Autoplay On Off
Feb 24, 2014An excellent stealth game, true to the spirit of the original and at the same time much more modern. Very polished gameplay and a clever difficulty level make Thief a game no stealth fan should miss. The plot and the setting aren't always inspired, but the quality of the content greatly makes up for it.
Pelit (Finland)May 11, 2014Not the best brand relaunch ever, but forgetting the great predecessors, it's a decent game of its own. [March 2014]
Feb 24, 2014Thief is far from the disaster that many feared it would be, and fans who take the time to customise their settings ahead of their first playthrough will find a rewarding world here to pick clean. Nevertheless, it’s still difficult to shake the feeling that, for all his dexterity, Garrett has stumbled in his attempt to gain access to a new generation.

You can choose theIs the first Thief I played, I played for almost 2 hours and loved the atmosphere, the gameplay, everything is perfect . You can choose the difficulty , I chose normal and it's still a little hard to steal things without being noticed, you have to think before what you're doing and keep an eye on the movement of soldiers. The graphics are not spectacular, but they are beautiful. I ran the game with everything max, filters, etc, at 1920x1080 and rolled flat, the FPS ranged between 50 and 60. It took me almost 2 hours to get past the first mission , exploring every corner to steal as much as possible and trying not to be detected, which made me take more. About the negative reviews, including the "big sites", I was not disappointed to read before playing, and now I played I'm not unrepentant, as I said, I loved the game and I recommend for you that enjoy a good first-person stealth game. Ignore the reviews, play and give your own conclusion. That's it.… Expand

Great stealth system, excellent sandboxing (you can go nearly everywhere all the time only unlocking new areas through accepting missions and story)
Massive amount of things to loot
Mystic, and the Glyphs are there though I´d like so see more of the "old school"
Great graphics and story.
Clumsy close combat (pressing R makes an attack)
Too short :)
I´m unsure how to gather 30000 gold in the game to purchase the most expensive trinket.… Expand

The stealth is perfect, A.I. is not as dumb as different game magazines say. It's far more clever. The only game drawback is engine and graphics. It's just a usual UE3, but it's a bit unoptimised and laggy. This is the only bad thing I noticed playing it.
So, if you like stealth games, this one is "must have", imo.… Expand

I have, like many of those not appreciating this version, played the previousDon't be fooled by the unkind words said in some reviews. I have, like many of those not appreciating this version, played the previous versions - loved them all.
I liked that they had the guy who did voice acting in Mass Effect 3 (the sniper alien can't remember his name now) as the guy who voiced Garrett, even though he wasn't the original voice of Garrett(?)
I was just a tiny bit disappointed that the general look of it seemed not too far removed (except in quality, which was pretty outstanding) from the previous Thief games, and I have to say that I didn't really like the plot either, but I did enjoy playing this one. The FMV sequences were able to be skipped - which having gone through the in-game movie of Tomb Raider I was pretty pleased about - but I still watched them all once just to get the idea of what the story was.
I thought it was a very polished effort, great graphics, loved the particle effects and the lighting on this one. Didn't like having to shift the same plank of wood every now and then, and don't think my keyboard appreciates having to mash a key to open a window, but it wasn't too far removed from what could be expected.
It's not excellent to the nth degree, but it's definitely worth getting hold of.
I think the only thing I wasn't too happy about was the light gem - whereas in the original you had a purple/blueish hue around Garrett when he was in shadow, we now have a little gem in the corner that seems to only go from white to grey to black in three very short steps. I didn't really like that little bit about it, but generally, the game was fun to play and I would recommend Thief fans play it if they haven't already.… Expand

This game is mediocre.
The game is like a quickly thrown together movie title game, they are basic, nothing really new or exciting, simply the same game we have all played before, but now with different colors.
Save your money for when it drops to $10 or $15, because that is about all its worth. More and more of these big time companies are just trying to make a dime, instead they should try to make a game, then they would make more money. I have come to a point, that I will now wait for scores as to whether or not to buy a game, instead of buying a game and watching my hard earned cash go to waste, oh well, live and learn.… Expand

It tries to copy so many other games that it completely fails to make its own identity. The setting interested me and, initially during the prologue, the looting interested me. That's it. Everything else was a disappointment. There's absolutely no reason to play this travesty when you can get Dishonored instead.… Expand

I was enjoying the game....
Until I hit an actual boss fight (Yes in Thief!, next boss fight in Civilizations, Settlers or the Sims?) where you're not able to save at all.
Considering I turned on a lot of options off to come closer to the real thief experience I find it impossible to continue the game.
So after 7 chapters playing I found out that I should have kept those options on because Thief has turned into an action game with un-savable boss fights.
Now I understand all those negative reviews.......R.I.P Thief franchise… Expand
