Thief Review

This game had high expectations from everybody who ever played a Thief game. The developers didn't make a 100% job, but they did a pretty good job in my opinion. And after all the games released this year and last year, for me this is the best game I have played in years. (and believe me I have tried many games)

I just love it how it's not focusing on combat, actually it kind of avoids it, and that should be a stealth game's goal. Not like in Dishonored for example, where you can just go shoot everyone and walk through the levels, here you have to be quick, distract the enemies, find other ways to pass them.

The story is average, but the focus is on the gameplay. Although I would have been happier with more options for thieving and side missions throughout the City.

The graphics are pretty detailed, the style and mood is faithful to the existing Thief games.

All in all I think this game deserves higher scores than given by other reviewers.

    This is a game I really wanted to enjoy but found myself struggling to the whole way through the game. I am a new thief player and have always enjoyed stealth games and was looking forward to see this reboot of the franchise that started it all. And all this game had me saying was I should really be playing dishonored instead. It felt almost exactly the same in every aspect. This would be fine by me if it they had been released close to each other but dishonored came out over 2 years prior whic...
