Summary: I was looking forward to this game for a long time, but in the end I couldn't even bring myself to finish it. The graphics are decent, but the sound and cut scenes were very choppy. The story itself was cool, but the gameplay was really lacking. First of all, the fighting engine is terrible. I know its a stealth game, but when you needed to fight, it was very hard and frustrating. Too many times I died and found myself turning the game off.
Summary: I do NOT understand all the hate this game gets. I mean, seriously, this game is called Thief. You must be stealthy and use tactics / range, there is not very much option to go guns-blazing. Although, later in the game once you unlock all tools / weapons if you have the skilled advantage you could walk around 'The City' as if nobody is a threat to you & still have a blast! I personally, thoroughly, loved this game.
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: 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: First time playing any thief game so I cant comment on any previous version but one thing for sure this game cannot be played on the hardest setting without being spotted every time you approach a guard from the back. I even stopped playing it for a while since it becomes very frustrating. Overall the graphics are nice, it takes a bit of time to load the chapters, and reload last save compared to other ps4 games I've played.
Summary: The game has amazing 1080p graphics on the PS4, but I was hoping and perhaps expecting a slightly different in-game experience. I find the controls awkward and inaccurate. It's a cool game but could definitely be better.
Summary: Thief's atmosphere and stealth mechanics shine, but you lose immersion every other 5-10 minutes as the result of duplicate AI bugged speeches near doors (with an abrasive echo), AI that inconsistently spots or doesn't spot you, and AI that can't pursue you. And that's saying nothing about its lacklustre narrative...
