not worth 60bucks
After seeing all the trailers and reading up on the game I thought it might be cool. Since I bought my ps4 it has only served as a highly priced dvd. So getting a new release was exciting. After playing this game a for a few days it really started to get boring really repetitive. As a dedicated stealth game I thought it would of been a lot better, lets face it Tom Clansy's Double Agent had a lot better stealth than this game. This game is no more than a wash rinse and repeat. The graphics and sound was good. The controls were clunky.it just wasn't for me.
worth the wait
i preordered this from gamestop awhile back. this game was worth the wait i am in the middle of the game now and the story is gripping and the gameplay is so smooth. it has a feel of dishonored mixed with assassins creed. it is tough to put this game down when you start playing it!!! i would highly recommend this to anyone!
One of the best action-stealth titles in years and the first real lived game that actually makes you feel like a real thief yourself. This game has potential to start this year right.
This game is OK
i bought this game on release date and was excited to play. The graphics are beautiful but the scenery does not change up much.
Every area looks the same and the game play just doesn't work well at times. Jumping off from ledges can be an issue when trying to complete a mission, also maps aren't very good either. If you want a game that will allow you to level up and sneak around Thief is good for that but game play would be a downer.
Great Game Play
Great game play some of the video is a little choppy at times but lots of fun. The video may be fixed with a patch soon I hope.
Honors the Thief Legacy; Incredible Achievement
As someone who loves both Thief and Dishonored, in addition to Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, I think this reboot of Thief is impeccable.
For whatever reason, this game is getting reviewed like it's terrible or something, which I find, quite frankly, more than a little absurd.
Given the quality of graphics, the nicely detailed animations for Garrett's interactions, the solid gameplay, the immersive environments, the nicely done story-telling and voice work, I think Thief deserves more respect than it's being given.
Sadly, my friends, it seems like the gaming community has experienced a collective butt-hurt, where they're all trying to pretend like they're actually knowledgeable when it comes to the Thief franchise. For example, many of these same Thief fans once hated Dishonored because they thought it was a "Thief clone," yet for being such diehard Thief fans, these people didn't seem to know that Harvey Smith worked on Thief before working on Dishonored. Whatever, it ultimately doesn't matter, but the whole sheepish mentality in gaming communities is pretty silly. I find a lot of the knee-jerk reactions to be way over the top.
Whether Thief lived up to your expectations or not, it's a nicely built game. especially when played on higher difficulty settings, giving it a really core Thief vibe.
Pay no mind to the knee-jerk hive mentality, give this game a look for yourself and see if it's something that interests you. I expect a lot of "Why did this review so low" and whatnot reviews in the future when it comes down in price and more people try it out instead of taking some exaggerated reviews to heart.
Stealth is key to being a great thief
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.
Very repetitive. Just stealing the same items over and over. Very limited upgrades and gameplay is alright. The graphics especially in the cutscenes are horrible... mouths are not synced to audio in most cases and it just looks like a polished early PS3 title. really regret wasting the money. If you want to give it a try... just rent it.
a really good game
this game might be getting some bad rep but i found it to be really enjoyable it has really good graphics, a great storyline, and plenty of stuff to do.
Not terrible, but incredibly flawed
While the gameplay was fun and the graphics are nice to look at, there's really nothing more to it. The plot is mediocre, and is topped off by a terrible ending. even worse, the most important cutscenes (which weren't written or directed well and were just plain awkward) have a tendency to lag really badly. Traversal is INCREDIBLY limited, and gameplay choices are almost nonexistent. That being said, no part of this game stands out as special. I'm so glad i only paid $35 for this, so now i can sell it back for almost a full refund and stick with Dishonored.
