Thief: Deadly Shadows...NOT Splinter Cell but a good stealth game nonetheless!

-GRAPHICS (good on highest settings, although not on the level of games like UT 2004 or Half-Life 2)
-LEVEL DESIGN (the levels are cleverly designed and interesting from start to finish. No complaints here)
-STEALTH FEEL (simply put, you have to sneak around to beat this game and you have to be creative to do it!)
-GREAT PROTAGONIST: I love Garrett as a character. Everyone whos plays this game will like Garrett's sly and arrogant attitude. It works and he has some great lines in the story!)
-THE AL: guards and civilians all have really annoying voices and are very dumb
-REPLAY VALUE (once you beat this game, that's it...unless you wanna try to beat it on expert, which is VERY HARD)
-JUMPING: Jumping can sometimes be very awkward and hard to do. I got stuck trying to climb over or on top of countless objects and platforms.
-STORYLINE: It's not a very intriguing story. It feels more like you're just running around doing random missions for the heck of it. Garrett is the only memorable character from this game.
OVERALL: Thief is a great game in it's own right. It's challenging and will occupy you for a good month or so, until you beat it several times. However, it's not as innovative and well-developed as Splinter Cell. But if you've had a little too much of Sam Fisher lately (like me) than you'll get a good bang for your buck out of this game. Plus, it's been out for over a year now so the price should be right.
