    Thief 2014 is "Except"ional

    It all started with the rope arrows. After Thief: Deadly Shadows' eschewing of them for the incredibly boring climbing gloves that were yet another sign of the downfall of the franchise, I was elated to see the rope arro... Read Full Review

    Baron, Baron, Baron. Never leave important letters lying around

    Garrett is no savior; in his quality of Thief he might feel tempted more by the shiny gold rings on an enemy's hand than the idea of lending his Claw to a slipping friend in need. This might have fatal consequences when ... Read Full Review

    Moody or Boring? Either way Garret's mini-club has to rank as one of the worse weapons of game history.

    I just finished Thief. I got it when it first came out. Yeah, it took me that long. The problem mainly was it bordered on "boring" for me. When I put the game down, I had no urge to pick it back up other than I paid full... Read Full Review

    Underneath the weak story and numerous bug there is a great game waiting to be explored

    I have never played the previous Thief games, so my review of this game will not be clouded by nostalgia and unrealistic expectations. I am a big sucker for stealth and good atmosphere, both of which are found in Thief.... Read Full Review

    Garret came back, story didnt.

    Thief is a restart for the Thief series. Albeit the present game is far superior to Thief 3, Thief fails to become a uber game on its own merit.Garret continues Garret, a multi skilled thief with little regard for other'... Read Full Review

    Fails to be a worthy successor

    First off, I LOVE the Thief franchise. I played Dark Project, Metal Age, Fan missions, and Deadly Shadows. I had Thief wallpaper on my screen, and theme songs on my iPod. It was MY game throughout my college years. I was... Read Full Review

    definitely a fun game

    So far, I really enjoy the game. It looks very nice on xbox one although it's a bit dark and muddy but that's to be expected in a game where shadows take precedence over brightness and color. I like this type of game whi... Read Full Review

    Far better than the press would have you believe

    As a firm fan of the seriews since the beginning first impressions are indeed awful. The intrusive HUD elements completely ruin any sense of immersion or suspense. The very first thing I did was work out how to turn ev... Read Full Review
