The orianal Thief game came out some time near 1999 I think. That game was to my understanding the first stealth game. Since then stealth games are relesed left and right, and in my apinyon they just aren't that good. But Thief: Deadly Shadows is a breath of freash air on the stealth games becouas it's just pure stealthyness. So, about the game, The game play is veary good mainly becoeas it is pure stealthy game play. Graphiques are amazing but they come at a expence. Often the game gets veart choppy ang laggy. Controls are veary easy to get used to becouas they are veary easy. Even though I did not bet the game yet (only had it for three days) I can say the story line is veary good. So if you looking for a good stealthy game look no ferther becoas Theif: Deadly Shadows is the game you are looking for.
