Could be a great game
I bought this game and later that day I realized I made the wrong decision. The plot is very confusing and the gameplay is very rough. The idea is great, I would give the idea a 10 of 10 but the way the game was carried out was poor and could have been done way better. I would not recommend it and I hope you don't buy it.
game was fun the campaign was fun. there was some missions on it that were aggravating but fun going through the game buying things to make u a better thief and sneaking around
Thieft took my money :)
Just like a lot of others, I was extremely excited for this game to hit the shelves. But after playing this game, I was a little disappointed. I'll admit, the stealth portion of the game is great and I enjoyed the overall idea of this game, but the weak story and very annoying loading screens kill this game. It just felt "ok". I know it's based on stealth, but the combat portion was terrible. With some tweaks on fighting, a better story & cut out the loading screens......I would give this game a 8, instead of a 6. But that's just my opinion. Try the game, you may enjoy it more and think it's great.
Lots of potential, doesn't live up to it.
There is so much potential with this game and it just falls short. The repitition gets old early on. The load screens are annoying and feel lazy. The story builds up to something potentially really great just...well, ends. No conclusion to any of the main plot points that they built up so well. It's disappointing. The good things: Graphics look pretty good. Nothing overly awe inspiring but well done. Controls are smooth and precise. But these things don't make up for the negative things. I leave disappointed.
Clunky at best
Very average gameplay, lack of storyline, weak characters, terrible movement between game locations and stages, without any real integration with tools or weapons. Same old unreal engine with no real enhancements. This is the first game in a long time that I would prefer to watch TV instead of playing.
Has potential but missed IMO
Great concept, but the game was more of the same throughout. If it had more of a first person shooter aspect to it as well as what it had going for it now it would of gotten a better rating. It's a lot of sneaking around in front of guards 3 feet in front of you but who cannot see you because you are in shadows. You do not have to take guards out but in order to do so you club them with a blackjack or shoot them with various types of arrows. Sounds great in concept but there are too few guards so basically you can walk up to them all and hit them with the blackjack which gives you no reason to sneak around. Swing and a miss.
The game was everything I expected.
Great graphics, great sound(especially with the gold headset), Great Story line, It's everything a hardcore gamer could want in a stealth game.
An Easy and Fun Game To Keep You Busy
I want to start off by addressing the combat system. People complain about it, but that is probably because they haven't upgraded their characters enough for it to actually be fun. Combat is great when your character gains all of his abilities from focus points. But regardless, the game is Thief, and the experience is much more fun if you attempt stealth to complete your missions. The trophies/achievements are very easy to get, and the companion app is worth the money if you desire to get the platinum trophy because it has everything you could need. I have noticed an issue on various systems with game crashes, most recently being on the PS4. Upon reaching Chapter 6, I had a random save file corruption that forced me to delete my saves and any other data from the game and start new. However, the game is easy enough that this only took me a couple of hours. Hardcore gamers will blow through the story in no time, giving plenty of replay value because of the numerous collectibles and side missions. Casual gamers will probably take a lot longer but will definitely get their money's worth. In all, it is a good game, and if played how the developers intended, it is a very enjoyable experience.
really a wonderful game
some of the components are very hard like being a ghost, but overall, the game is really great! i recommend it!
The trailers sure look fabulous but, the game is terrible. It is boring! Just the same thing over and over and over again. I can hit someone over the head with a stick for some action though if I am starting to doze off. Pfft. Really? I read where some were having difficulties being stealthy, but I did not find this to be difficult at all! I am so disappointed in this game. I expected more from these people, shame shame. In fact, I found everything about this game lacking. Sound, graphics, gameplay....all just baaaad. Just no ya'll. No.
