    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

    Quite enjoyable

    To describe Thief in one word, I would have to say gratifying. After a number of failed attempts to steal everything from under a guards nose and you finally succeed is quite gratifying. I think the big complaint... Read Full Review

    Thief is a good game but not without its problems

    I’ve played Thief for about three hours and I really like the game. Granted, when I read the reviews from critics across different sites including Gamespot I can see why they have issues with the game. All the crit... Read Full Review

    Don't Listen to Reviews: Thief is Fun.

    I am a hardcore series fanboy, so I understand the critics' gripes. Yes, it would be much better with less linear level design. Yes the plot and dialogue are bad. However, this game really doesn't deserve as much vitr... Read Full Review

    THIEF (2014) Review

    The reboot of fan favourite stealth franchise ‘Thief’ is here in its full glory. But does it live up to the past games? While this is definitely no Thief: The Dark Project or The Metal Age or even Deadly Sha... Read Full Review

    Cutlery Thief

    Thief is a game that fails on too many levels to make it a worthwhile addition to anyone's gaming collection. It cannot keep a frame rate above even 30fps if anything is moving at the same time you move. The visuals are ... Read Full Review

    Beautiful stealth game

    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
