What Gamespot Users have to say about Thief II: The Metal Age

  • Review Score:8.2

    More of the same as the original, but somehow not as strong a showing as the original.

    This game uses the same mechanics as the original game and even adds some equipment which you didn't have access to in the original game. Even though the gameplay is the same and there is hardly anything new to learn it ... Read Full Review

    Thief 2 is a very good sequel and keeps high the Thief name.

    This is a very innovative name. The stealth theme makes this game a "must have". at first i though it would be boring but as you can see its not. The way you have to complete the missions, the freedom you have to do them... Read Full Review

    Right off the bat, Thief II: The Metal Age is one of the best games ever made, and far beyond the best stealth action game. It couples an amazing atmosphere with a stellar story to make pure immersion. Though the graphic... Read Full Review

    Great story! Loved the graphics!

    This game simply teleports you to a medieval complex of locations where there is a very rich plot which involves all blankets of society. Like in our world, a constant fight (though not so evident ) between good and evil... Read Full Review

    Thief 2: The Metal Age is a worthy sequel to the greatest game of all time.

    Thief: The Dark Project, when it was released, simply blew my mind. It was the most innovative game I have ever played. So, is the sequel good too? Let's find out... Gameplay: 10/10 - What can I say? It's a immersiv... Read Full Review

    Thief 2 is very immersive and superb, until you get to know the flaws of the guards' AI and it becomes a puzzle game.

    Thief: The Dark Project was probably the first game in the sneak-‘em’up genre, pioneered by Looking Glass Studios. Breaking into buildings, hiding in shadows, studying guards’ walking patterns, hiding their bodies became... Read Full Review

    The next installment in the Thief series is a good one. It has an excellent storyline and tie in with the first game. The twists in the game make it really fun to play. Some of the new things in the game (technology) are... Read Full Review
