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.

Thief - it all began 16 years ago. First person stealth game. After playing the first mission I was overwhelmed with the genius of developers. Later on, when I got to explore caves, ancient temples, ruins full of monsters and undead I was less happy. I wanted "pure" thieving experience. Without the need of dodging burricks and zombies. Still the game has amazing story and gameplay. That made me stick to it till the end. Gold version features few more missions - set in "normal" environment.
The gameplay itself, well... As I stated - it's a stealth game. You have to avoid enemies at all costs, taking them down only when necessary and disposing of all evidence, unless you want to bring a dozen of searchers upon your head. Killing is loud and messy. Your victims will cry out and leave pools of blood that alert their comrades. The blackjack is your best friend if you need to take someone out. Stun a person and remove the unconscious fellow to a secluded place. When you face monsters like zombies or burricks it pays to just stay undetected. Undead can be destroyed only with holy water. Burricks can be killed, but they are very tough and better left alone.
Thief is an old game to be sure, but it works very well on modern rigs. What's more - there are fan made HD mods that make the looks of the game quite enjoyable. So, all things considered, this is a must have for any game collector - history, and still enjoyable history! at your disposal.

After finishing Thief Gold I understand many things.
The game for many, the masterpiece of the stealth for others, and a model of the old school, now all those words have a meaning for me.
Thief is no ordinary game, nor is it a game for everyone, it is based on the "old school", one term that meant a type of game that does not provide anything, and that makes you have to get you the tricks to advance, so different from the actual games where everything goes out and you just have to go following the instructions they give you. In no thief quest guides, maps are practically sketches, scenarios are labyrinthine and action to explore, explore, well, it becomes essential to come to fruition.
The game will not give away anything, and makes you look the tricks you at all times to move forward. It's not about ability, so catalogaría not difficult (I would pass on expert) but it is a matter of patience, and a lot, perhaps too much for the current style and the times.
Stealth could split it into two parts, the visual, that has not seemed too successful (the typical stealth all games from it copied, use the shadows to practically turn invisible) and sound, that if I it seemed great, and I'm surprised that has not been used by other games because it gives a different touch that makes it even more than 15 years standing to be a reference.
The game is long, because although the missions can be completed in about an hour, sure ur going around and around on stage and you lack the wayward object or that hidden switch to move forward. To me it took me 48 hours (removing the first 45 training) and far I've come to get all the gold and have knocked out many, making the job easier.
The good thing about this game is that there is no possibility of bugs, everything is painstakingly studied, you can not get stuck as there are several ways to reach the same place and you can even get to the game without terminating you knock out one (throwing muuuchas, but muuchas hours, of course)
The game as they say, is a masterpiece of the genre but is not suitable for all, indeed, say that seeing the current state of video games, is a game that very few (and mostly people of age) will enjoy knowing as it deserves.
To take some hits, combat, note that is a stealth game, and the few times I have to fight for certain missions, it becomes quite unbearable, the engine is not ready for it and you're gonna get deal of patience to kill a single spider and see how all the hits you give will go to empty.
Indispensable to install the OS tfix modern.
In conclusion, the best stealth game even today, and recommended recomendadísimo as long as you're prepared and have an idea that you will not play a normal game, and that is far from modern standards
