A fantastic game as long as you play it correctly.

Summary: Thief can be a wonderful experience if you play the game as a ghost...a true thief. Hiding in the shadows, studying enemy behaviors and patrol patterns, never being seen...and never killing. The game becomes quite a challenge and it is just more entertaining. Many of the reviewers try to play it like Assassin's Creed or solve every mission by knocking out guards or causing distractions. They haven't experienced the full potential Thief has.
Great game if you like to sneak around and play ...

Summary: Great game if you like to sneak around and play in the dark. Being that I am a huge AC fan and that Thief has similar game play styles, I naturally was drawn in. It can be methodical in the sense that if you are like me and have to INSIST on getting every last coin and piece of jewelry or artifact, you will be spending more time completing chapters versus if you just run through for the sake of progress and in order to complete the story line.
Challenging in many regards, yet too short of a game.

Summary: Intriguing, challenging to stay 'out of the light', good side quests. The big con: I only had about 20 hrs.of playtime before I finished the game (and that's with finishing all the side quests but one).
Summary: Lots of people do not like this game because they don't understand the purpose. Your a Thief and you steal; albeit you can kill from time to time but it is not the main purpose. The graphics are pretty good and there are a lot of things to steal and this game will pass time pretty quickly.
Summary: Yuck. That's all I can think to say for this game. Yuck. Having been a hard-core Thief player back in the day, I was super excited to see a revamped version of it. Especially with what we're able to do with next-gen technology. But, none of that mattered with this version... because the ball was dropped at every level. The game play is just flat-out boring. The main character, Garrett, and his little girl-toy, are just flat-out ugly. Hideous, in fact.
Summary: I can see why some have a problem with this game, it's not for everyone. I however really enjoyed it. There are some things I things they could have done to really improve game play but overall I still found it enjoyable. It was a fairly quick play but I really enjoyed using stealth and intelligence for a change as opposed to just running in guns a blazing. If you are a run in with "guns blazing" type of person you may not like this game.
Summary: I'm a casual gamer and always like a game where the primary objective isn't shooting things. Here it's all about, well, isn't it obvious? Unfortunately, the graphics aren't really a ton better than what you get with a PS3, but some light effects and reflections are indeed very nice looking. The game is very much like Assassins Creed, as it's all about stealth and climbing up roofs and avoiding all-out battle.
Summary: Pretty good game....story was kind of blah....some of the game mechanics were blah (get used to tapping square to open windows, and pushing 2x4s out of the way?)...but the graphics are pretty, and sneaking around gets fun once you build up your character a little bit....basically what you might expect from a game released at the beginning of a console's launch.... With more work, the game would have been great....
