I remember playing Thief: The Dark Project for my PC back in the day. It was one of the first stealth-action games I owned and I used to be addicted to it. It's been quite a few years since then and when I heard that Deadly Shadows was coming out, the first thing I thought was "Will it live up to the original Thief game?"Let me just tell you that not only does Deadly Shadows live up to the Thief name, but it surpasses the original Thief in almost every way. That may seem like a strong statement...
Thief 3: Deadly Shadows is easily one of my favourite games. I take an immediate liking towards atmospheric titles with unlikely heroes and engrossing stories, and this is no exception.As the series' protagonist, Garrett, you are a master thief. This is a great starting point: your primary duties involve sneaking around at night, pilfering valuable items that can be sold to a fence whilst completing story objectives for one of Thief's primary factions (the zealous Hammerites, the bookish Keepers...
Thief: Deadly Shadows. Concluding a story is always difficult. It’s even harder when it’s the finale to what must be the most innovative and refreshing PC game to date.

Don't get me wrong, i enjoyed it and all but half way through i "shelved" it for a long while before getting ba...
Ion Storm's new game that was released May 25 of 2004 has definitely made a lot of old Thief fans happy. This new addition to the series has definitely improved Ion Storm's pride since their dismal output of Deus Ex: Invisible Wars.Definitely following along the lines of the first two thief games being Thief: The Dark Project, and Thief 2: The Metal Age, Deadly Shadows (DS) adds to the story right where the Thief 2 left off. Many fans were spectacle of Ion Storm gaining the rights to the franchi...
