    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

    Despite everyone bashing this game, I am enjoying it very much!

    The graphics are amazing. The loading screens don't really bother me. The story is interesting. The AI is the only slight flaw in the game.. The previous Thief games were known to have similar issues so there's nothing ... 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

    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
