Square Did it Againsycomantis1991 | May 15, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
Square took a great franchise full of character, excellent stealth gameplay, and great atmosphere, and they made it a glitchy mess of mainstream schlock. The controls are unresponsive, there are glitches abound, and the story and characters are dull and uninspired. Hyped as a stealth game, there's no advantage to actually being sneaky, and it's way too easy to just plow through or even just run past your opponents. It's a mess of a game and a shame to an otherwise excellent series. Square Enix just refuses to make quality AAA games nowadays.
Repetitive and quite basicPlayTyrant | May 6, 2015 | See all PlayTyrant's reviews »
It's not like this game is bad, I think it just doesn't match my tastes. I rarely stop playing a game before finishing it, but I ended up uninstalling this one. It's like I wanted to like it, but I can't, not sure why. I think it's because it's repetitive, basic... and I'm a BIG fan of stealth games. After a few missions I didn't even bother trying to sneak and went just like crazy. Definitely expected more from this title.
Couldn't finish the gameBILFERTY | May 4, 2015 | See all BILFERTY's reviews »
I lost interest in this repetitive closed window thief simulator. It does not live up to the Thief name, though it doesn't totally spoil it either. I had a good time in the 5 hours I spent with it, but never had the urge or desire to go back and finish it like I usually do with games that slip by. I sometimes scroll my massive steam library and something pops out at me - Thief is not one of them. I bet that I will never launch it again. Let's get to why - it feels very limited. I feel like I can not play the way that I want to play. Sure there are some big maps with multiple points of entry, but I am always feeling constricted by something. Maybe its the windows that close instantly separating the interior and exterior areas, maybe its the dumb guard A.I., maybe its the lack of a main melee weapon (even if I wouldn't use it). Or maybe it is the repetitive nature of the missions. Whatever it is, it does not live up to Thief or Thief 2 - with which I was totally immersed in its rich world and story.

The game is a bit tedious, have to like a lot of stealth games to play this, if not you will soon stop playing it. The game has a story that is very badly told, has 8 chapters in total, and only in the 7º and 8º that you understand about the story. The game offers the option to select various difficult modes, but if you try to face more than three enemies or even less you get killed quickly. The side missions are horrible, just steal something and get a little bit of gold, it discourages do these missions, because the rewards are few, offsetting more focus on jewelry from the main quest. The game itself is regular, and I ended up quite short in the game's story and characters. But to compensate, the graphics are very good although the environments are extremely repetitive. I do not recommend buying this game if you do not like stealth games.
One of the best stealth gamesandreacdc98 | Feb. 5, 2015 | See all andreacdc98's reviews »
Thief is a stealth kind of game, but in a very different kind. In this game you have to steal goods from peoples houses to make money, but it is really hard, making the game challenging and enjoyable to play. The gameplay is great and fun, really easy to control and the environment is very interactive. The graphics are extremelly good and it was over my expectations in general. I would recommend this to all of my friends and to the people who enjoy stealth games, but I think everyone would enjoy it, for the campaign and of course, the stealth moments, which are great!
