against so many of many successful stealth games that are often made in third-person mode, Thief gave this pleasure to the enthusiasts in the first-person perspective, bringing for the first time a new and different experience. Thief is actually a remake for this series, which made the gameplay, as well as its other sides, fluctuate so that along with amiliar and key elements of the series, the skeleton of the new version take shape. The new Thief, like its first two games, is not completely followed by the first person prespective, or like the third version, it does not allow the players to move between the first-person and third-person mode. Instead, in normal mode, the camera comes in first-person mode and when necessary, like long movements on the walls comes to the third-person viewe angles. This feature has created a more practical formula from the past, which, at the same time, has many opposite critics. Using Garrett's fast movement, you can move between two points in a second, but still stealth hiding in the dark is the best strategy, and with failure in the fighting system, it is the only possible way to get the job done. Hence, when crawling in darkness and shadows, a halo surrounds the screen and if you exit from this state and become exposed to danger it disappears! The Thief is a relatively a satisfying rebuild, that, although it did not answer many years of absence and anticipation of its old followers, and has a bit of trouble, it worth to experience!
This game is timeless classic. Great stealth gameplay, incredible, almost overwhelming atmosphere, thoughout level design with some pretty good AI for the time. Gold edition contains slighly upgraded version of the original, with some new missions. Graphics are not that great, but thankfuly there is no thing that mods can't fix. If you are all about gameplay and atmosphere and never heard or played this series, get this game. For 1 pound it's almost a steal and by taking it for this price you can almost already be like Garret in this game. Recommended.
This game has models, that look like my origami humans, yet somehow, the atmosphere manages, to make you forget the graphical shortcoming in mere minutes, and once it sucked you in, this will be a rather intense, and often terrifying adventure. This isn't merely a game about sneaking. In this game, you play as a badass rogue, that any adventuring party would love to have in their ranks. Garret is sneaky, sure, and can open doors with ease, but he also has gadgets that even the Green Arrow would envy. There are many tipes of trick arrows, to distract, or eliminate the foes, and overcome obstacles. You also have flashbangs, potions, and even mines, to really ruin the day, of the many types of enemies this game has to offer. The gold pack offers 3 new levels, all of which are a mush have. Also, this game has a longer play time per level than most games today, so get ready for a long ride...
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.
