Excellent Game, Some Rough SpotsIHadToDoIt | Nov. 16, 2015 | See all IHadToDoIt's reviews »
Thief, to this day, is an excellent game and with various fan-made patches, the game can still look and run fairly well on modern computers. The graphics aren't great by modern standards, but look good enough for a game from the late 90's. HD Texture Packs can help make the game look better if you are significantly bothered by the graphics. The levels are massive, sometimes too large for their own good. Some levels are largely focused on pure stealth, while others involve combating monsters and the undead. These levels are fun, but the combat (aside from the fact that it was designed to be difficult so the player would focus on stealth) has aged fairly poorly. The levels added to this version are decent, but still the worst in the game (with the exception of Song of the Caverns). The story is great although the addition of some of the levels breaks the flow of the story. It's a great addition to any stealth fan's library, and with enough patience to get past the slog of the beginning, a fun, atmospheric, and rewarding stealth game awaits.

I really don't care how dated this game looks, it was great for its time. Also, the lighting is still done very well, which is a key component to the game. You can sneak around literally anyone and into anything you want if you know what you're doing, or you can knife every fool you come across. It adds a high level of reputability. On top of that, the levels are sprawling and gorgeous (again, taking the tine period into account, but impressive either way) and the controls are precise and fluid. This game is well worth picking up, especially considering how often it goes on sale.
Still As Good As It Was Years Agoemptyhaven | March 11, 2015 | See all emptyhaven's reviews »
This game is more than a decade old and yet it still stands the test of time. The graphics and sound are still good, despite the advances we've made. They're not better than what we have now, but they still work well for the game. Also there are mods that allow you to improve on graphics. Levels are massive, and for a game like this, it is perfect. The levels feel fully explorable and you don't feel trapped. You will have to be very observant to collect everything. This is an incredible classic that should not go unplayed. You owe it to yourself to play it.
Basically an Assassins Creed Prototype. But still good.Delta998 | Oct. 30, 2014 | See all Delta998's reviews »
It's like Assassins Creed, but you get to steal treasure. You can use all kinds of weapons, and items to kill, or distract your enemies. Like putting out fire with an water arrow. And fight off zombies in another level.

The founder of the stealth genre. Favorite game, take away pereprohozhdeniya months and years of love. One of the few games that has become a benchmark in the art igroproma. Rare case when nepovtoimy plot that thirst to absorb again, echoes the fun gameplay, and technical support height incarnation and to this day remains unsurpassed. Despite the fact that the years go by, and the schedule according to modern criteria already looks archaic, perfect technical level in the processing of sound and outstanding talent in music writing, convey enchanting gothic atmosphere of the game to this day. Perfect zvuchenie and awesome music to the soul in this game - is an irresistible vertex standard that no one else was able to beat. As for the gameplay, today hardly anyone surprised by the opportunities that this game provides, but the attention to detail of the game mechanics, to this day, can compete with the best and AAA big budget projects. About the story will not spread much, not because it is unlikely you will be surprised what is likely to turn, but because I do not have enough vocabulary, and patience, told all his dignity and give it depth. Especially, I would not want to leave spoilers. I will mention only the main points of what this narrative - the intersection of the Renaissance and the Industrial Revolution, progressive religious cult HAMERITOV pent conservative dogmas, secret society KEEPERS, spy on everything that is happening, the ancient cults of pagan, fighting for survival and containment of inexorable progress Closed Community magicians, cultivating knowledge of poetry, a ruthless police, the greedy king of the underworld, as well as zombies, monsters and dozens of other secrets that require a thirst quencher like your interest. This is a game that for the overall development - is obliged to pass each.
