Yep still a Thief gameGordonFreechmen | Feb. 2, 2013 | See all GordonFreechmen's reviews »
Unlike some stealth series Thief never turned into an action game. This game is at heart a stealth game, it plays like one. It isn't your Splinter Cell Conviction were instead of stealth you have an action movie. It is a stealth game. It may not do stealth as well as Thief II did, and it isn't as iconic either that is probably why. The game is still amazing even if it doesn't do stealth as well as the second, and the updated graphics are nice. I wish it was as easy for me to pick up games from the 90's and play them, but it isn't. I have gotten used to modern graphics, and while Thief Deadly Shadows may not be the best looking game, it does look visually a lot better than its predecessors. So if you are looking for an actual stealth game, with decent (not great but decent) graphics. Look no further.

Thief is an interesting game that offers brave new concepts of stealth. It offers it in a sleek and original way that no other game I've played can compare to. The graphics do their job well, they're average but understandable for the age of the game but the real great thing is how many items there are to steal per level and also how many routes you can take through every level which is amazing! The diverse tools of your trade include many different arrows for your bow as well as a blackjack, for knocking people out, and a knife for those life-or-death encounters. The bow works amazingly with it's different arrows whether they water arrows for torches or sound arrows for guards to be fooled by. Overall, a brilliant game that can, however, drag on after a while but still worth the experience of a true stealth game at its best!

Thief: Deadly Shadows is the third episode of the saga that began in '98 that chronicles the adventures of Garrett, a thief video game par excellence. The setting is one of the most evocative of the game: a dark medieval town where houses, palaces, monasteries, caves and libraries are the scenarios of action that takes place in the almost palpable darkness, broken only by the faint light of torches, gas lights and flames. Another characteristic feature of the game is the silence, broken by the steps and whispers of the guards patrolling the vicoli.Garrett juggles in a medieval town to explore every corner, where the old political equilibrium-based social orders of Hammers and Pagans is increasingly precarious and the population is terrified from having a terrible profezia.Oltre to complete quests for their own personal gain, Garrett will have to discover the truth of this prophecy trying to stop it. The strengths are the third-person view, which ensures comfortable and close shots, new gadgets and new sequences of burglary and the charisma of the protagonist and engaging atmosphere for a compelling story, backed up by an excellent engine. Sound Effects exceptional thanks to directional effects, ambient noises, voices and whispers of the guards, crackling flame, footsteps on gravel and pavement absolutely realistic and almost hypnotic music. The attention to sounds becomes crucial to the game mechanics, to understand which direction comes a guard and how far it is.
A good game but...Zinzun | Sept. 4, 2012 | See all Zinzun's reviews »

Thief: Deadly Shadows is the third installment of the acclaimed first-person game. The game was produced by the studio Ion Storm. The player takes on the role of a medieval thief named Garrett, who is trying to stop the arrival foretold centuries before the era of darkness. The game combines elements of action games, role-playing and adventure. Worth getting.
