Thief takes away to much from the franchise to be considered a 'Thief' game. The only factor that makes this a Thief game is Garret. No Hammers, no Pagans and no Keepers. All lore removed, just Garret remains. This game will probably appeal more to the mainstream than the oldschool Thief fans.… Full Review »

You could play a mission and ace it, then replay it step for step the same and get killed constantly.this makes it an exercise in frustration, impossiblevto master and basically a game of luck, which sucks for whats meant to be a cakculated stealth game.then theres the technical issues, sound out of sync with horrible animated cutscenes and constant lag with constant loadingscreens, a convoluted map with no waypoint, more frustation as you spend more time trying to find routes ti wwindowsills than anything else in this game.do yourself a favour and pass on this one, or il swap you my copy for anything really.its such a shame, it cuda been great.… Full Review »

It is riddled with sound problems all throughout (audio completely drops off/ subtitles racing ahead/ random clicking noises), the frame rate is unacceptable, and I personally had the game crash on me at one point.
Now if you thought this low score was merely because of technical flaws, that is certainly not the case. The entirety of this game is pretty much linear, where the 'alternative' paths almost always end in a dead end with some loot if you are lucky. The world is uninteresting and completely disregards the fascinating lore it should be based on. The game even includes sections where you climb around in a third person perspective as if this was assassin's creed and there were even 2 or 3 sections where I was simply running from the explosions going off all around me.....The hub world is a huge nuisance to navigate and the vast majority of the side missions are lackluster and boring. The few side missions that were enjoyable were mere fleeting moments from the overwhelming drudgery of this experience. This game is basically deadly shadows (one of the more mediocre thief games) with worse level design, worse AI, more bugs, no story to enjoy, a burdensome hub world, and a ton of features to 'streamline' the experience.
I am just glad I only rented this one. Not only is this monstrosity a disgrace to the Thief franchise, but it is also a disgrace to the stealth genre as we know it.… Full Review »
