Summary: The videos made this game look really cool, however it simply wasn't fun to play. It was sort of open world, but then every time I tried to get to a new target there would be a wall or gate and I'd have to backtrack through 3 other sections to go around. The more you play it the less open the world feels. I thought I'd enjoy the stealth because I like Deus Ex and Splinter Cell, but somehow this game just didn't pull it off (and I can't quite put my finger on why).
Summary: To clear this up for all the bad reviews saying the combat sucks. Umm its called Thief, not M.M.A. If you play the game like a thief its fun, if you want to play it like God of War, yeah its going to blow.
Summary: This game makes little to no sense from a plot perspective. It also has perhaps the worst in game map you can hope to not find. The game lacks a good flow/feel and its beyond painful trying to find all of the collectibles. The characters that appear in the game are the most repetitive I have ever seen. Worse when one type of bad guy gets replaced with a different faction of bad guy, the new dude happily walks around saying the same thing as the original.
Summary: Good things: Different than most games I've played so good for that; the gameplay is sneak based but you can choose from three playstyles which means you have lots of options. Ghost, Opportunist and predator. I won't say much about the actual styles but the names give you an idea. Bad, Bad, Bad things: Bad lip syncing. the whole cloth simulator engine claiming it looks nice is a joke. the main character is ultimately just some guy, no real connection.

Summary: I must admit, I had never played a Thief title before but after watching a
few gameplay videos online, the game left me intrigued and wanting more. Thief is by no means a perfect game but for what it aims to achieve – the
true feeling of a master thief, it arguably does very well. You are placed in
the role of Garret, a master thief who loots and sneaks his way through the City
and hidden dungeons to free a fellow thief, Erin who is trapped by a mysterious
Summary: Set in the ‘Thief’ franchises universe, ‘Thief’ changes quite of a few of the old things in the game and introduces some new things. The story - as one might expect from a game named Thief – is centered around Garrett: a master thief. Tasked with stealing a stone from the Baron of the City; Garrett works with another Thief to accomplish things. But things go wrong; terribly wrong.
