Great game. Only started mission 2 and enjoying it very much. I have not had any problems with loading or gameplay. I don't know, I mean I played the original first two Thief games, Monkey Island series, Tombraider, Grim Fandango, Syberia, Longest Journey, Diablo, Psychonauts, Alice games etc. I am an adventure gamer. So far I love this game. I am also a PC gamer. I build my own machines. I take my time and enjoy a game. So pick what you want as my excuse as to why this game is great. I like the visuals, the music, the gameplay. The cutscenes are awesome. I think Thief does exactly what it needs to do. Gaming has come a long way in 10 years and this game made a transition but I think it needs to be considered in the perspective of carrying on what it was which I believe it does.
