    Having never played previous Thief games and being a fan of the stealth action genre, I decided to give the latest installment in the Thief series a try. The medieval setting is a pleasant departure from the slew of stea... Read Full Review

    An extremely immersive game, with lots to like. Very reminiscent of the "Splinter Cell" games. (I've played those as well.) I found that the stealth in this is dead-on with not as much trial and error as the afforment... Read Full Review

    I went into this game expecting to see some stealth action comparable with Splinter Cell, instead i got an experience I will never forget. First, the controls were not responsive enough, the character was not maneuverabl... Read Full Review

    Having recently finished this game (within the last 48 hours), I figured I had better getting my thoughts down while they are still fresh in my mind. So, in not too many words, here is why I recommend this game to all tr... Read Full Review

    As a long-time fan of the Thief series, it took me some time to think about what it was about this game that didn't sit well with me. The most serious problem is the small levels. I'm not sure how the level length comp... Read Full Review

    I have long been a fan of the Thief games and the unique subworld that Garrett lives in. I looked forward to the release of this game on the XBox and dove in with both feet when it was released. In general the game is ... Read Full Review

    The masterthief Garrett returns once again. This time also on the Xbox since the first ones where on PC-only. The Thief games is for many considered a good addition to a genre who also include Splinter Cell, Metall Gear ... Read Full Review

    A good stealth game but not quite splinter cell level. The game has a good twist about 3/4 the way through.

    A good stealth game non-the-less. If you have not played the other thief games i suggest you do because i didn't and my brother read of a website how Garrett comes to have only one eye and why he is with the keepers. The... Read Full Review

    Fans of the series will love it, no doubt. But other stealth fans might want to look elswhere or at least rent it.

    Thief was an okay game, but it needed alot polishing in some parts. First off the gameplay was good, but unfortunatley not great. Even though you can steal, pickpocket, club and kill, you'll realize there just isn't enou... Read Full Review
