I remember when the original Thief was released I spend endless hours sat in front of my PC with the lights off playing the game. What an experience! Seldom have I got in to the character of a PC game protagonist as deeply as I did with Thief 1 and 2. These games literally invented the first person sneaker sub-genre and they have certainly not been bettered.
In all the Thief series, success comes from patiently waiting, watching, calculating the timings of guard patrols, selecting which torches to extinguish with your water arrows then picking the perfect moment to bop a guard smartly on the back of the head before hiding his unconscious body. There are some nearve-wrackingly tense moments in Thief 1 and 2 where you find yourself cowering in a corner while an oblivious guard walks past only feet away, whistling to himself as he does his rounds. Oh yes, Thief and Thief 2 are absolute classics.
By modern standards the Dark Engine (which powers Thief) and the Dark Engine+ (which powers Thief 2) are woefully out of date in terms of graphical quality. However, these games are an absolute show case of sound design in a game, and neither engine is so ancient to make the games unplayable. Thief and Thief 2 are all about the game play rather than shallow but pretty graphics. If you enjoy immersive first person games you would be doing yourself an enormous disservice by not playing this series.
Thief 3 was somewhat more controvercial, in that it was ported to the PC from the equivalent console game.Read more ›

I have marked it down a star because of the fact that the cutscenes are cut, but this remains the best sneak 'em up on the market today.
These new patched versions of Thief 1 & Thief II: The metal age (2000) run under NewDark, a fan-modified version of Thief's Dark Engine. As I prefer the original gameplay to the 'Thief 1 Gold' included in the this DVD, I simply NewDark patched my ancient SoldOut install copy of Thief: The Dark Project and the game now runs superbly under Windows 7 64-bit. Search on-line with the words 'NewDark' and 'Thief 1 and 2' and in the www.ttlg.com forums and elsewhere you can link to download the patches (one for each game, NewDark is at v1.22 as I write). If that's a bit scary, buy the NewDark ready patched STEAM or GOG.com versions. Thief 3: The Deadly Shadows (2004) has always run fine for me under XP and Windows 7, whether I use this install DVD or download via Steam (although Deadly Shadows still that the odd glide glitch where jump deactivates, but that's overcome by saving and reloading or falling off something).Read more ›

Windows 7 - might work for Deadly Shadows. Better get a gaming PC Win XP for this game. Thief Gold and 2 are Win 95/98 games so should work on Win XP. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Amazon Customer
An enjoyable set of FPS games at an excellent price. Nice variation where success comes from stealth and, at some levels, killing anyone results in mission failure.Published 12 months ago by FD
Will not install on my Windows 7 PC. Something to do with it requiring IE4 or Netscape (both obselete and out of date). Read morePublished 18 months ago by WOLFIE.

The Thief series cannot be compared with anything else. The cool game play, weird world and characters and factions require more than just going around causing fights(note requires... Read morePublished 22 months ago by christopher merrifield
