    The game is in many ways a good stealth games but to me atleast it sadly falls flat of being a good game. I'll do this review in segments and then a summary on my overall thoughts on the game.My specs are: Intel i7 quad ... Read Full Review

    I've played all the Thief games

    This review had me really concerned at first. But I disagree with many of the complaints, and I feel like the reviewer rushed through and didn't appreciate what the game has to offer. I'm just into chapter 4 now, and enj... Read Full Review

    Pointless

    I was expecting a lot from this title which we adored so many years ago ... But this - this is one of the most boring games I've ever played in my 20-year PC player "career"! The City is completely uninteresting, which ... Read Full Review

    Great

    Despite the bad ratings this game has been receiving, I think the game was very good! I'm a thief fan myself and although the game did not live up to my already high expectations, I think overall the game was great. Lev... Read Full Review

    This is Thief, but VERY far from everything good that was Thief.Goth girl is a huge question mark, in other words the story is terribly lame and doesn't move the game forward in ANY way. Mostly you hope to find your way... Read Full Review

    Nice Game

    I played all Thief series games and completed this new game yesterday and it's a good game but lacks some features that's why it's just a hit not a superhit. The good features of this game are environment and gameplay ;t... 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

    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

    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
