What Gamespot Users have to say about Thief Gold

    Being more than a decade old, this gem has aged fairly well. Pick it up if you're a stealth fan.

    Rated on April 30, 2013 by Mawy_Golomb

    What feels like a long time ago, this game was praised by fans and critics alike. However, coming from someone (me) who didn't play it back in the day when it was released, but started playing it abou...

    Save yourself some time and hard drive space and pick up Thief for US$10.

    Rated on February 07, 2005 by Nealok

    Thief is an innovative spin on the first-person-shooter (FPS) genre with which most PC gamers are intimately familiar. It turns many conventions on their ear, smirking at other developers as it says,...

    Stealing from the rich has never been more fun

    Rated on August 11, 2005 by MarsLander

    Now this will go down in the history of gaming as a truly inspired, and well thought out stealth action game. I should start out by saying that I have played Thief, but this add-on I enjoyed a lot mor...

    Steal valuables, use your bow, sword, black jack and stealth to your advantage. Get in and get out unseen (ideally).

    Rated on November 16, 2005 by excaliburblade

    Thief: Gold is innovative. The idea of stealing for hire is a fun concept. The application of this concept is well executed. Stealth is the name of the game and shooting arrows is the way you play. ...

    Considered to be the game that started the stealth FPS genre. Worth playing and replaying. A great game, great story.

    There is a good chance that those who have played a stealth FPS has heard of the Thief games. Dark Project was the first of the Thief series, and later Thief Gold was released, with improved graphics...

    The city is calling you master thief!

    Rated on January 22, 2009 by mogulxlnc

    There is something with the graphic engine of eidos games. The graphics are not kind of wow. The game has a chilling atmosphere. Pulls you in and then it's tough getting out. The game is mostly dark,...

    Best Taffin' Game Ever!

    Rated on December 18, 2005 by Quintapus

    This review judges Thief by the standards of 1998. If you haven't played Thief yet you definitely need to. Get a version that runs on XP as the original won't. And don't get The Dark Project, becau...
