Reviews and Problems with Thief

Scary at times, explicit in others, overall very interesting if that's okay with you

  • Summary: There are a few missions that are SUPER scary, especially if you're playing at night with the lights out, a big screen, and surround system. There is some really messed up stuff in this game. Also some sexually explicit stuff that probably could have had a toggle to turn off, but alas, if you can live with all that, then this is a very interesting game. The control scheme is a little weird but you get used to it. Lived up to the previous Thief titles.

  • Summary: I was hesitant to purchase due to the bad reviews, and I can see now why some people don't like the game. If you like strategy games where you have to stay in the shadows to accomplish your mission, then you will enjoy the game. If you like lots of action and combat, you will probably not like the game. While you can sneak up on people and knock them out, most gameplay is done in the shadows with your main goal of never being detected.

Maybe the Worst Game I've Ever Played

  • Summary: I dont think there is a single pro to this game, so i will just list cons Cons (be prepared there are alot of them) -visually you cant see anything in the game, the sky is orange and the town is like always black -weird set up, its in the setup as a first person shooter but with no guns or melee objects, its like the elder scrolls in the set up, but for this game it just doesnt work -pointless game, you just go into places and take things, and the story line is...

Pretty boring

Hunter Gaston, Amazon

  • Summary: 2 stars because maybe this game is tolerable to someone. I couldn't get through the first 20 minutes. I've been a huge fan of the Thief games since the first one came out when I was in high school. I'm not opposed to a series changing direction (I actually liked Deadly Shadows a lot,) but this just seems like a bad game. The story, mechanics, visuals... nothing there to keep me playing.

Just sneaking

  • Summary: If you like Assassin's Creed type play (or more like Dishonored) plus a few "special" powers, you will enjoy Thief. If all you want is to run around (multiplayer style) shooting nonstop (Battlefield, Halo, etc.), this is NOT the game for you. I was new to this series so I didn't have a bias based off previous games of this title. Enjoyed the story line and the challenges. SPOILER ALERT (don't read further if you plan to get this).

This game was great starting out

Toby Max Carter, Amazon
20 August 2014
  • Summary: This game was great starting out. There were plenty of shiny things to steal and plunder. However after the first mission the game goes downhill and you feel less like a thief and more like an assassin or ninja. There is hardly any loot lying around, however when you do find it, it is of decent value. Still that does not save this game. The intelligent player will be board in about 2 to 3 hours. Not recommended.

Not a next generation level game, but I enjoyed it.

Noah K Mullette-Gillman "Author", Amazon
17 August 2014
  • Summary: Aside from the improved graphics, this game feels like one that would have come out 10 years ago. It's very short (Only 8 main missions, and maybe 3 side missions that I've found.) It's linear. I enjoyed it. I LOVED the original Thief and its sequels. I kept expecting more from this one. It ran smoothly. There were only a few glitches for me. I didn't care about the story. This did NOT feel like a next generation game to me.

This is a game you can easily pass on

William, Amazon

  • Summary: The game looks good, and I like the story but I really hate the repetitve features. For example every window you can enter all have the same animation, and every narrow hallway has the same move the 8x8 piece of wood animation. Along with that theres to much loading. That brings me to another issue, some windows take you to other parts of the map that requires loading and unless you rememeber which window goes where your stuck loading. The game also feels way to empty.

Definitely Not Next-gen.

Shawn Wedick, Amazon
21 July 2014
  • Summary: Decent game. Can tell it wasn't developed primarily on the new systems, so it doesn't look as great as it could. The stealth is handling well, but nothing that you haven't seen before. Feels cool to break and enter, then steal some valuables. However, instead of really using them for anything, you more or less just collect them as trophies, which is lame. For achievement hunters, it's not so bad. Some really irritating collectible achievements, but fine otherwise.
