Thief Collection finds its way to Steam

#1 Posted by valrog (3671 posts) -

Just saw this, and I'm hoping that they will bring even more games (Like Alice for example, and some other great titles that are currently missing). Thief Collection is now available on Steam, and with a 50% discount too.

If you like stealth games, Thief is definitely worth checking out.

OH DUDE! My favourite games of all time. Thief Gold and Thief II....On Steam. The pleasure of buying these games again will be all mine. As far I'm concerned they are the best stealth games. Ever. Done.

I wonder what version of Thief 2 steam has. I wanted to try Thief 2X over the winter but for some reason never got it to work.

Actually that's a good point, I wonder if you could get T2X to work, not that it matters. I mean I have at least two T2 discs.

T2X is great, I was a little sceptical at first and aside from one or two missions, It is amazing.

@Death_Burnout: I just bought Thief gold on its own, figuring that the sequel is just unnecessary more of of a great (supposedly) game.

Am I correct in assuming this?

Oh man, no Thief 2 is absolutely worth getting. Only if you like the game of course, I look at it as a mission pack expansion to the first game with a few tweaks and additions, oh and story of course. Thief 2 has some of the most beloved Thief missions in it. I personally prefer the theme and tone of the first game myself, but T2 is a must. I would say that though!

1 & 2 have been on GOG for a while and I got Deadly Shadows on Steam at least a year ago for almost nothing.

Are these games worth playing if you've never played them before? Do they hold up OK?

@PeasantAbuse: The Thief series is great and well worth going back to. Deadly Shadows (the most recent) is the weakest of the series, but there is one level in the game that every fan of horror games should play, and makes purchasing Deadly Shadows worth it in my opinion. If you can afford it, get the whole pack.

WOOO! About time. Buying 1 and 2. Already own 3. I thin the fourth is coming soon too. Tho i hear it has multiplayer which is worrying.

Already have them on GOG, but in general the Thief series is excellent and people should buy them.

They are very good games. However, they require a level of patience that newer games don't. Some people who are only used to playing new action games won't like them. Most major games have become linear, easy, and action oriented. It's too bad, moderately challenging games can be fun. The third game is probably the best to start with.

@Death_Burnout: Wait, Thief deadly shadows and Thief Gold are different things?! oh no what have I done.

#15 Posted by squirrelnacho (329 posts) -

@ItBeStefYo

Did you look at the individual game descriptions at all? They are 3 different games, each getting slightly newer graphics and different features.

They need the Diablo games on Steam, unless Blizzard won't let them or something.

@squirrelnacho: This is a terrible mistake, gonna have to go to steam support for the first time, see what happens!

Oh snap, thanks for the heads up.

#19 Posted by mordukai (7125 posts) -

@Death_Burnout: Seems like steam has the latest official patch they had for the games so the games are vanilla. You'll have to install the FOV mods for those games and some fan made mods to make the game look better.

@PeasantAbuse: They hold up incredibly well, like...I get more enjoyment playing these games to death now than playing most games that come out today. There are some problems with platforming and climbing, but nothing you can't handle. I still love the visuals, in fact the visuals are part of why I love the game so much as well as the sound design, both create an atmosphere you will be hard pressed finding better in games today.

@GDYoder: @squirrelnacho: @Death_Burnout:

Sounds pretty rad, thanks for the information.

@ItBeStefYo: Keep it. Deadly Shadows is still a great stealth game. Mechanically, it is probably the best in the series though I've only played the first two without mods. There is a little less exploring, but the world is still fun to explore and the Cradle is incredible.
