Conclusion: We all remeber Thief. Creeping from shadow to shadow, pick pocketing and then along came Thief 2 improving what it had started we all knew there would be another one. Years passed consoles came and went doubt came to the world of stealth as MGS took the throne as king. The next gen was anounced so was Thief: Deadly shadows. You ask me now why should we care the world has moved on . You should care because this one of the most fun games in the world of the X.
Summary: I played this game on xbox when it first came out and to be honest i wasnt impressed with it at all,the problem being that i was playing games like tomb raider,final fantasy etc that gave me a false perception of what kind of games were the best type of games i should be playing,i'd like to admit that my taste in games have changed and thief deadly shadows is a well crafted title that deserves at least 1 go(even if it is a last gen title)its by no means perfect with a...

Summary: In Thief:deadly shadows you play a thief called garret who has a mechanical eye and a voice like snake plissken. It is your task to unravel a conspiracy in a nameless city whilst stealing everything you can see to buy more thief tools. most of the time you're in a medieval city but you wander off onto ships full of zombies, the odd manor and underground ruins.
Excerpt: "Like its predecessors, Thief: Deadly Shadows features a memorable protagonist, a great setting, and some very interesting missions. One of the many reasons why 1998 was such a groundbreaking year for gaming is Thief: The Dark Project, a game that helped invent what's now commonly referred to as the stealth action genre. Though two other noteworthy stealth action games were released that same year--Metal Gear Solid and Tenchu: Stealth Assassins--Thief's ...
Excerpt: "Deadly Shadows is the third game in the series Thief. Developed by Ion Storm. The game is a stealth game where you play a master thief called Gareth. Set in the medieval times, he must steal the City's oldest treasures in order to stop the darkness foretold in the prophecies.

Summary: This game provides hours upon days of fun gameplay. BUT, be warned, if you in the market for a more serious stealth game, splinter cell is certainly a better choice. Thief 3 allows you to roam around the city, break into houses, pickpocket, sell your loot, buy stuff, and do missions. The AI is very human like, they sneeze and talk and actually do stuff instead of just standing there.
Summary: So finally another installment of Thief- Man we waited a WHILE!! The new Thief is greatly improved technically compared to the earlier Thief games, by that I mean graphics but also manouverability (crikey big word that), BUT though it was amazing to encounter guardsmen who grumble about their jobs etc in the first games, now they dont ever STOP.
Summary: Packende Story, fantastische Licht- und Schattenspiele, sehr dichte Stadtatmosphäre, spielerische Bewegungsfreiheit, durchdachte Kameraführung, anspruchsvoll, gute deutsche Texte und englische Sprachausgabe, gelungene Außengeräusche / Ladepausen zwischen einzelnen Gebieten, steife Animationen, teils unübersehbare Ruckler der Grafik, unausgewogene Intelligenz der Gegner (mal schlapp, mal unfair), kein Multiplayer, sich sehr
Summary: Allein der Name "Thief - Deadly Shadows" sagt uns, dass es hier in erster Linie um die mehr oder weniger hohe Kunst des Abmurksens geht. Tatsächlich haben wir es mit einem Game für die X-Box zu tun, in dem es vornehmlich um die lautlose Annäherung an den Feind und dessen anschließende Beseitigung geht.
Pros: Packende Story, fantastische Licht - und Schattenspiele, sehr dichte Stadtatmosphäre, spielerische Bewegungsfreiheit, durchdachte Kameraführung, anspruchsvoll, gute deutsche Texte und englische Sprachausgabe, gelungene Außengeräusche
Cons: Ladepausen zwischen einzelnen Gebieten, steife Animationen, teils unübersehbare Ruckler der Grafik, unausgewogene Intelligenz der Gegner (mal schlapp, mal unfair), kein Multiplayer, sich sehr zurückhaltendes Hintergrundgedudel
