Product Description

Product Description

Follow this first-person role-playing game through updated missions and new levels:

Thieves Guild Garrett has heard that the Downwind Thieves Guild has pulled off a daring heist, stealing Lord Randall's sapphire vase. However, they are now squabbling among themselves about how to share the loot. Garrett decides to go in and steal it himself. He intends to break in through a gambling den they operate called the Overlord's Fancy.

Mages Guild In the ruined city, the Keeper Chapel revealed that the Mages Tower was the hiding place for the Talisman of Air. Garrett breaks into the tower to steal it. The talisman is being held in the central tower of the Mages Towers and is secured by spells. To free it, Garret has to get one master Mage from each of the towers to stand on a particular pedestal and touch his ring to a symbol. Garrett must find his way to the central library, unlock its doors with items found in the towers and then unlock the door to the Talisman Room to get the talisman.

Songs of the Caverns Garrett searches for the Talisman of Water, which is hidden in an underground cavern deep below the city. However, he soon learns that someone else has already stolen it, and his only clues as to who it is come from the ravings of a lunatic hermit.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Demanding a better strategy than "find the biggest weapon and blast everything that moves," Thief Gold relies on stealth, wits, and skill to deliver a totally unique adventure thrill. Though it's modelled on the first-person shooters we all know and love, Thief is more accurately described as a first-person sneaker.

You play the role of Garrett, a master thief who becomes entangled in a web of lies, double-crosses, and fanaticism. Each of the game's 12 missions is introduced with a montage of images, accompanied by Garrett's cynical comments. After examining a map and coming up with a general plan of infiltration, you select the special tools of your shadowy trade: a sword, blackjack, rope, magic arrows, and sleeping gas bombs are just a few of the toys at your disposal.

In this game, it is generally better to knock an opponent out with a sap than risk a fight, or worse, an alarm, and the items are designed with this strategy in mind. Magic water arrows can be used to extinguish torches, creating pools of concealing shadow. Moss arrows create a blanket of soft fungus to deaden footsteps. This subtle change in available equipment makes all the difference; the shift in character from the marauding death machine of most games to silent burglar heightens game tension and adds a tang of adrenaline.

The graphics are dark, bland, and moody--perfect for a game set in a damp medieval metropolis. You'll want to play Thief Gold in a quiet room with the lights out, as the faintest footstep or dimmest torch flicker may be just the clue you need to find your prize and escape with your life. In fact, paying careful attention to your surroundings is crucial to success; by eavesdropping on some guards' conversation, you may learn that a passage is trapped, or the location of a key. Clues like these will enable a well-equipped and cunning thief to slip in and out of a target building without being seen, without bloodshed--and with the goods. --Rob Lightner

There is no better game than this. The entire series is a master piece and there are several editors now to continue creating missions of your own. It's undoubtedly the greatest pc series ever made and can be played for eternity, literally. The storyline is so involving, you'll wish you could trade your Ipod for a bow and arrow and live in the time of Garrett. Think the Half life series is good? Think doom series is good? Well I own them all and none compare to this gaming tapestry that only gets better and better through the series, I would continue to buy this game if only they kept producing them. To any fans please get involved in creating fan missions and continue the legacy. Buy any of the thief series and you won't be disappointed, if you don't believe me check any other reviewer this game will never go lower than 4 stars.

This is one of the best games I have played and is such a refreshing change from FPS blast everything in sight games.This game requires stealth and underhand cunning and a sure way to die is to go looking for a fight.Its much more useful to stay in the shadows and shoot an arrow into the back of a guard or hit him from behind with your sword.The game is very atmospheric and you can interact with practically every item you come across.The graphics are good and the sound effects excellent with great speech effects even if the hero has an american accent! You can not afford to miss this game at this price

This is in my opinion the best game you can buy for your pc. It is frightening, medival, cunning & will have you gripped hour after hour. The missions are superb & the fact that the computer controlls your enemies & makes them think like you makes it twice as hard as most games. An excellent purchase that will cramp your social life until you finish it.

Thief, what can I say, fantastic, incredible, extraordinary, superb, terrific, tremendous, brilliant, I could go on.
This has to be one of the best games I've ever played in my life, and I've played hundreds, maybe thousands.
It's such a rare thing, but sometimes there comes a game, that not only creates it's own genre (sneak-em-up), but out classes everything in the market at the time.
The only game that comes close to being as enjoyable is Thief 2. Which is a continuation of the story, improved graphic's and gameplay and just as absorbing.
This Gold edition is even better as it provides even more great levels. The only bad thing I can possibly say about Thief, is that it consumed much of my life. Over and over as it's one of those that you can always go back to.
I'll forever remember this game as the legend it is.
BUY IT!

I chose this rating because although the original Thief: The Dark Project would load on Win XP this version would not and there is no contact with Eidos that I could find. E-mail to them undelivered. The gam play was good though and did manage to play the three sdditional levels but not the last one (Blooper Reel the secret mission).
Had to resort to Win 95 to play, although I think it would work on Win98.
