    Thief was revolutionary when it was released, and while a lot of its luster has faded, it is still an excellent game that combines many complex elements together with such great skill, that the whole ...

    Thief: The Dark Project is undoubtedly a great game. Its immersive atmosphere and the charm of Garrett make it a winner.

    So why did I never get myself to finish it? The answer is simple: bad level design. This is the one and only complaint I have with the game. Mind you: the level design is not always bad, just the cont...

    One of the two games that redefined the FPS genre.

    Thief: The Dark Project is a game that i immediately fell in love with when i first played it. In the game you play as a thief named Garrett, but you're not just some pickpocket, you're a master thief...

    Thief: The Dark Project rightfully marks the beginning of successful stealth action games.

    How incredible was this game when it came out? Where to begin.... The first thing to note about Thief is how ahead of its time it was. Thief's shadow/AI detector system was and is still brillian...

    A FPS yes, but the game concentrates much more on stealth and strategy.

    Back when this game came out in 98 one of my school friends told me all about it. He isn't a particularly excitable guy but he was going absolutely crazy about Thief: The Dark Project. So four years l...

    I spent hours playing this game and loved it I'd be happy if the'd remake it with new or different levels.

    Rated on February 17, 2006 by masterch_sniper

    The first thing I’ll say is remake it with the new Thief: Deadly Shadows engine and maybe with a few upgrades to it. But I have to say this game was superb! I spent a long time trying to beat the game...
