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

    Rated on May 08, 2007 by LonnieMitchell

    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 anyth...

    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...

    Great story! Loved the graphics!
