5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Game with Super Graphics and Immersive Gameplay, 2 Mar 2014
This review is from: Thief (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
I Pre-ordered this game on Steam because I had played all 3 previous games in the Thief franchise and thoroughly enjoyed each of them. Like many people I was a little apprehensive as to whether Eidos would manage to create the same feeling within the game that Thief fans know and love since there had been such a long 10 year gap between this game and the previous release (Thief: Deadly Shadows) in 2004. However, in my opinion at least they have succeeded, creating yet another excellent Thief experience which gives the player enormous satisfaction, especially when you manage to complete an entire chapter without being detected! Many of the characters and areas of the city in the game are the same as in previous Thief games which is good as it still makes you feel you are playing an actual Thief game, e.g. Stonemarket, The Clock Tower, South Quarter etc.

Contrary to some of the other reviews I have read about the game being unstable and regularly crashing, in my experience at least (about 12 hours so far) the game has been running perfectly smooth and hasn't crashed on me once. Yes, there are one or two small bugs in the game, particularly with the sound but honestly they aren't that noticeable and I'm sure Eidos will already be working on fixes for them.

The game is most similar to the 3rd Thief game in that it is partially open-world and when not completing the main story line, the player can explore 'The City' and undertake side-quests for various people. The story-line is very immersive and well written and some of the chapters are really rather spooky, in fact it's as good a horror game, if not better than many which actually claim to be horror genre games.

Overall, I would Highly Recommend getting this game, particularly for fans of RPG/Horror/Stealth based games and I would say it is essential for anyone who has enjoyed playing the previous 3 Thief games.
