While a little rough around the edges, still a masterpieceUn0va | Oct. 27, 2013 | Review of Thief Gold
Thief Gold, like its flawless sequel, is one of the best games to ever enter the stealth genre. Full of tension, secrets, and conspiracies, this is one game that no stealth fan should miss out on. Compared to Thief 2, it suffers one significant flaw - the game has several levels that focus more on action, or simply aren't as magnificent as the other levels, such as Cragscleft. It offsets this with levels like the Sword, but they're still there. Regardless, this is still a flawless game that you should play.
The pinnacle of the stealth genre to this dayUn0va | Oct. 27, 2013 | Review of Thief II: The Metal Age
Thief 2 is easily the best stealth game ever made, and to this day it holds up fantastically. Every level has dozens of secrets to find - in the first level, one whole floor of the house is completely optional, and is just there for you to explore and find treasure if you want! While not as atmospheric as the first game, the game still is full of tension and excitement from start to finish. The graphics hold up fantastically to this day - Looking Glass put immense detail and care into the game's artstyle, and it shows. The sound design is incredible - a game that was released over a decade ago still has guards react more realistically to your footsteps than any other game to date!
I could gush over Thief 2 for ages, but the bottom line is that you cannot call yourself a fan of the stealth genre if you haven't at least given this game a try. Thief 2 is a masterpiece, and you deserve to play it.
