Despite its age, Thief still is a masterpiece. If you can forgive its old graphics and its weird control layouts you clearly will fall in love with the game. Its gameplay is really deep, indeed, first your weapons are a real pleasure to use with the blackjack, which gives a real advantage playing as a ghost, or you bow, allowing you to switch between some various and very helpful arrows such as fire arrows to deal more damage or moss arrows to help you sneak past guards. The lock picking system which is quite fun and adding stress whenever a guard is around. The sounds your character makes makes you think about your every step if you don't wanna get caught and finally the light system which is one of the main point of the game is perfectly done, even though every lights in the game are pre-rendered. Its story and ambiance are close to perfect, the game is visually dark, which makes you feel like a thief unlike any other games, with quite an original story even though it really starts in the middle of the game. Its level design offers you the ability to get to your objectives by a lot of different ways and gives the game a great replay value. The universe is enormous, with a lot of different enemies, such as guards or some kind of monsters, and clans.If you're really eager to know about the background of the game you sure won't be disappointed. And obviously its main character Garrett is a fun and loveable character, every of his sentences are memorable adding a lot to the universe of the game. There are obviously some flaws in the game, such as the IA of the guards who know exactly where you are sometimes, but it shouldn't stop you from getting this game, it's a fun and unique classic.

When you rate a game, you must pay attention to the moment it was released. With almost 15 years, Thief was a revolutionary stealth game that will test you rabilities in the dark. Surround by its atmosphere and enjoy this jewel that still shines nowadays.
this is the start of all stealth games.fable2 | Sept. 10, 2012 | See all fable2's reviews »
There is something with the graphic engine of eidos games. The graphics are not kind of wow. The game has a chilling atmosphere. Pulls you in and then it's tough getting out. The game is mostly dark, therefore had to play it with lights off. Music really compliments the chilly atmosphere of the game. The tasks are a good challenge. It's very funny listening to the guards talking to themselves. Sneaking at the patrolling guards is really thrilling. More thrilling are the moments when the guards chase you. It's very hard getting them off your back. The game has a lot to offer. The vast expanse of the city lies in front of you to explore it. The lighting is superb and you will always find places to hide yourself in dark nooks and corners. Immerse yourself in this beautifully made game, It's a nice package, worth your money and time.

Thief was one of the first stealth game I ever played.The game is hard,but the setting is really good and this is a real stealth: avoid combat if you can and use shadow to hide you and past the guards.The graphic is still good, and the Gold Edition offers a few new levels to complete. A must buy.

This review is not written based off of nostalgia, as I played the game last month. I adore this game for its brilliant atmosphere, sound design, simple mechanics, and gratifying gameplay.
The intense experiences you will have navigating finely crafted levels with unknown horrors and forces are unmatched.
