  1. It’s an early, serious, and unexpected contender for my list of the top 10 games of 2014.

    At times, the developer seems ill-fitted for the franchise, but the studio has padded out this selection of classic stealth challenges with crafty cat-and-mouse moments that help intensify Thief’s ­slow ­pacing.

    Satisfying gameplay mechanics and excellent environments and sound design meet an unsound technical production, irritating and overly repetitive character dialogues and a lacklustre enemy AI. Stealth games lovers will still find good elements in the new Thief, but it isn't the triumphant return we'd hoped it would be.

    A solid stealth genre game. If you’re after an action-packed slaughterfest, look elsewhere – Thief will appeal to long-term fans and gamers that prefer to take a more cerebral approach with their anarchy.

    Hiding in the shadows and taking out each opponent like a ninja, albeit a non-lethal one, is satisfying. But Thief shows one too many unrefined edges, occasionally catching itself unable to resolve the issue combining classic design with modern production.

    Ignoring the story and cherrypicking the best side missions is the best way to approach it.

    Actively unpleasant to play, embarrassingly buggy, and wholly devoid of any personality, Eidos Montreal’s Thief reboot certainly isn’t the worthy continuation fans waited almost a decade for.

Foreboding atmosphere, superbly controls, complex gameplay systems, intricate graphics, exceptional storytelling, etc. Eidos Montreal have proven once again that their team has the chops to reboot a classic franchise after the incredible Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Thief is a Thief game for fans of the older titles. While some things have changed, 99% of it remains the same but better than ever. Expand

    A great great game.
    Huge replay value.
    I really dont understand the bad reviews on this game.
    Thief is definitely as good as Dishonored for those who care to compare the two.
    Everything runs perfectly. Excellent controls, huge atmosphere, great story, good graphics. Yes, there may be flaws at the AI, (but i am actually playing at a medium difficulty level, so can't say how it runs at the highest difficulty), but the game is still quiet demanding.
    The only issue I encounter on this is the map and actually a 2014 open world game which has way too many loadings while roaming the city.
    Still, It's non-sense this game averages between 6 and 7 here.
    I never bought the game (actually just got it now as it's for free in xbox live gold) because of the extremely bad reviews (which are clearly non-sense) and I am very very much impressed and highly compelled to play more and more.
    Do not trust the reviews, and buy the game. For me, one of the most compelling games after Tomb Raiders, and Halo on Xbox One.

There was a point in game but still i found it to boring. Mechanics were not that good. to much Stealth for me. Story line was not bad at all. I think i depends on what games you enjoy if you dont like easy games without action then Thief is not for you. Expand

    Thief' is sometimes adventure, sometimes stealth, but this lack of direction and mediocre story makes Thief a repetitive, but satisfying experience...

I bought this game with an open mind and I do like multiple genres of games. This game however I tried my hardest to like but just could not get into it. The controls felt horrible. The story was atrocious.Think Assassin's Creed but in first person and just terrible. I gave this game a 4 though because it did have a lot going for it, stealth wise. Expand
