Summary: I like sneaking in games, but this was incredibly boring. I felt like there was no point to the sneaking, and if you get caught good luck trying to fight your way out. You're better off just dying and starting over from the checkpoint.
Summary: I don't know why so many people are down on this game. Perhaps it comes down to the gameplay. It is a game that rewards patience. Maybe most gamers have gotten used to button smashers. But if you like a game thet rewars strategy and patience this may be a game you'll enjoy.
release during a console generation change and a great deal of hype

Summary: Ok, let me start this off by saying I am a fan of the series. This game has everything going against it, including old school fans who know the back story, lengthy development cycle, release during a console generation change and a great deal of hype.
Summary: Do not be fooled by the cool trailers like I was. This game is terrible. The story is boring, the controls are awkward, and the objectives are frustrating. The only good thing it had going for it was length. Luckily it was over in 6-8 hours so I could move on to some better games.
Summary: Bought this for my 18 year old son, not only did he love it but I watched him play it because the storyline is that intriguing. Usually these type of games make me a little motion sick to watch, so I just don't. But this was like watching an interactive movie.
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.
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,...
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.
