Garrett, the Master Thief, steps out of the shadows into the City. In this treacherous place, where the Baron's Watch spreads a rising tide of fear and oppression, his skills are the only things he can trust. Even the most cautious citizens and their best- guarded possessions are not safe from his reach.
As an uprising emerges, Garrett finds himself entangled in growing layers of conflict. Lead by Orion, the voice of the people, the tyrannized citizens will do everything they can to claim back the City from the Baron's grasp. The revolution is inevitable. If Garrett doesn't get involved, the streets will run red with blood and the City will tear itself apart.

If you can press E when it tells you to on the screen then all the missions are a breeze, all the routes through the missions might as well have neon signs pointing them out, it just feels like your going through the motions.
The story is ok but its a bit like watching a really long film that keeps pausing for you to hit E or Space
+ The art direction is good and faithful to the previous chapters
+ You can choose your own style (be ghost and leave no traces, knock out your enemies with the blackjack, etc.)
+ The bow and the various arrows are back!
+ There is a customizable difficulty level with various options (you can't knock out a guard, you can't use lethal arrows, etc.)
+ The overall "flow" of the various movements that Garrett can do is good (the running, the crawling, etc. feels natural)
+ The new "dash" movement can be a real "life saver"!
+ The first person perspective is good (you can see garrett's feet, arms, etc.)
- The story is just ok
- The NPC are not interesting
- Garrett himself have a lot of charisma but almost none backstory
- I think the PC version is not very well optimized (mainly lag and audio problems during the final cutscenes...)
- The final boss is a total joke
- You cannot cling or jump wherever you like, limiting your overall freedom
- The collectibles are nice but not very interesting
- The levels are not that big
- Your "house" is pretty much useless
- You can't pinpoint locations on the minimap
- The puzzles are relatively easy
- There is no innovation in the gameplay or in the graphics
In conclusion, "Thief" is just an okay game with a couple of interesting game mechanichs, but no real innovations like the original game...
To me, for this kind of games, a total freedom with the movements is extremely important but here is "limited", since you can only jump or cling when the game let you do that... but as an overall experience it is okay!
My advice is to pick it up for 15£ and if you enjoyed it, try "Dishonored" as well!

Having played & enjoyed all three of the previous Thief games, it's nice to finally have Garrett back after all this time & sneaking around the City landmarks once again to fill our pockets with loot. Using the accustomed style of the Thief series, first person stealth 'em up, this reboot relies on Thief: Deadly Shadows City exploration & loading screen mechanics. One big change to the series is that Garrett's voice actor from the past three games, Stephen Russell(Skyrim), is replaced with a younger Romano Orzari (Assassin's Creed 2) due to the role requiring more physical abilities, never the less he does a credible job with a reminiscent youthful Garrett voice. Despite a few issues with the game, i'm happy enough to be able to overlook most of them, as i'm having such a really great time in this new entry into the series.
Ghost: Leave no trace that you were ever there.
Opportunist: Use the environment to your advantage.
Predator: Kill'em all!
+ Built on Thief's unique premise & returning anti-hero Master Thief Garrett (personality intact).
+ Decent mix of 8 chapter main story & side quests roaming the City.
+ Stealing loot never gets old, especially with hidden treasures & mini games to crack safes etc..
+ Garrett's physical interactions with the environment offers more realism & physical presence.
+ Challenging range of AI to overcome (guard patrols, birds & dogs sensitive to movement).
+ Easy to navigate UI, newspapers & notes to read etc.. offering clues & cementing the current predicament of the time period.
+ Customizable difficulty options to suit every player (don't like the focus feature ?Read more ›

Disappointing. I loved Thief III and expected the same mesmerizing story with this, but the plot feels hollow and the game is buggy.Published 18 months ago by HarryJ
