I really do recommend this game, purely because the gameplay is really fun, and to me that is the purpose of a game. I can overlook poor storytelling, issues with graphics, and some minor glitches if I ultimately have a great experience and feel immersed in the world, which I truly did. I agree, this game is not what a Thief game should be. They really could have worked on making this game more like the original Thief games with a better story, original voice actor, as well as larger and more open levels with tons of exploration. However... I see people calling this game the worst game they ever played. Really? I have played the original Thief games and this game definitely does not live up to those classics. But I still had some fun with this game. It's still a good game but it's not a good Thief game. People are overreacting calling this a piece of garbage or a horrible game. If you take the game for what it is, it's really not that bad and has some fun to be had. I really enjoyed exploring the city as well as finding loot in small nooks and crannies. 100% ghosting missions was satisfying as well. This game also has one of the most scariest levels I have played in any game! Thief is a good game; it sucks that we were not able to see this game meet its full potential and be a true Thief sequel.
I like this game alot but I haven't played the previous thief games so I have no comparison. Pros -Options, you can complete a mission in different ways -Graphics, this game is beautiful -Atmosphere, it really feels like I am there. -You are a shadow, you can hear and see anything. Cons -Voices, sometimes the npc?s lines overlap or it sounds like an echo when they talk. -Sometimes I find the observation to be quite hard to use and I find the stuff easier manually.
Uninteresting world, story, and characters. Poor enemy AI. No incentive to play the game stealthy. Lock picking has to be done frequently and gets annoying fast, you often gain only one cheap item for your efforts. Money is used for upgrades and buying equipment, but the upgrades and powers are mostly pretty useless. City hub area is confusing and annoying to navigate and wastes your time forcing you to go back to a bar to resupply while avoiding the same enemy patrols. The ability to replay chapters, so you can use your better equipment or try different routes and challenges, is almost hidden. Replaying a level forces you to walk back to where the chapter started in the city to replay the mission, the map doesn't show where those spots are and the game gives no indication that you can even do it. The extra content included in this addition of the game is also not interesting enough to be worth paying the added price.
I enjoyed this game, its dark old Londonlike city, ambient atmosphere, scary part and funny moments such as Talking Scull. I found no freezes or bugs which some reviewers have mentioned here. Check your PC configuration first. The game worked smooth and loaded fast. I took dozens of decent screenshots. I felt some repetitiveness but it was compensated with a variety of ways to complete each stage. The ending is really a bit complicated. Nevertheless, you can always google for extra explanation from more vigilant players, right?
On the contrary from what a lot of people thought of this game, this makes a great return for the saga. If you played the old chapters of Thief you might see some difference but this game brings you totally into the deepest stealth. Without giving any spoiler for the story, you'll find your way in a big dark city full of soldiers and you'll need to be as much sneaky as you can, cleaning the path with arrows and obviously your dagger. What I liked the most from this game is the freedom going around the city, entering some house and being free to steal in order to get money that you will need to upgrade your stuff. The story going forward might look obvious maybe, but this is really a cool game with an awesome dark graphic.
