A very worthy sequelGmen | Nov. 23, 2013 | See all Gmen's reviews »
Thief: The Dark Project achieved the status of cult classic rather quickly, and fans of the game couldn’t wait for the sequel. And it didn’t disappoint. TDP had its share of issues, and Thief II addressed most of them. Firstly the character models look better as do decals like blood stains, and textures are improved. The result is a noticeably prettier looking game, but it isn’t that big of a leap technologically speaking – still using the same engine as the first. But I would say that this game has aged somewhat better than the first graphically.
The level design is significantly better in this game than its prequel, opting for a less linear approach, with more emphasis on sprawling urban environments. The things that made the original so great are still here, with plenty to explore, conversations to eavesdrop on, and a beautiful and at times tense ambient soundtrack in the background.
The pinnacle of the stealth genre to this dayUn0va | Oct. 27, 2013 | See all Un0va's reviews »
Thief 2 is easily the best stealth game ever made, and to this day it holds up fantastically. Every level has dozens of secrets to find - in the first level, one whole floor of the house is completely optional, and is just there for you to explore and find treasure if you want! While not as atmospheric as the first game, the game still is full of tension and excitement from start to finish. The graphics hold up fantastically to this day - Looking Glass put immense detail and care into the game's artstyle, and it shows. The sound design is incredible - a game that was released over a decade ago still has guards react more realistically to your footsteps than any other game to date!
I could gush over Thief 2 for ages, but the bottom line is that you cannot call yourself a fan of the stealth genre if you haven't at least given this game a try. Thief 2 is a masterpiece, and you deserve to play it.

This series has done it again, this is a great addition to the stealth genre. The game continues on and gameplay remains to same as its predecessor. Again, this time you are tasked with another 15 missions that requires you to use your stealth techniques to get through. With the increased enemy AI, the game difficulty have increased as well, so no longer the surprised attacks. With new entries comes new gadgets for Garrett to use in an ever expanding environment and non linear missions compared to the original. Definitely a must get for series fans as well as stealth fans.

This game is something special, it is nearly allive. You can keep playing it for years and keep finding things that you've never seen or heard before. Thief 2 is the peak of the series. It is smart and hard to master, but when you get all the quirks figured out - wou yourself become Garrett.

Thief II is a rare sequel that lives up to its predecessor. Taking the mechanics that made the original Thief so brilliant, Thief II pushes the player into a steampunk-ish world, where they must use their tools of the trade and wits to remain hidden and complete their missions.
