When the "Thief" series first started in 98-ish, the game was mind-blowing. Huge, especially for that time - cityscapes, with lots of hiding places, acres of rooftops and back-alleys to explore, and best of all, real "3D" sound. When you used a good set of speakers/headphones, the in-game "guards" "citizens" or your intended victims could be heard talking behind a closed door, or walking down the staircase you happen to be hiding under. While sometimes, you could play this like a shooter, many missions required absolute stealth, especially on expert level. I can't wait to see what 14 years of technology improvement looks like in comparison.
The original companies went out of business.. I think 3 different publishers handled the 3 original games. search for "Thief: the Dark Project" if you are curious. (that was the 1st of the 3 original games)
I found a demo on the internet archive.. try this out for a feel of the original if you are curious. - Just remember the download is a 1998 version .. I'm pretty sure the newer graphics and physics are going to be greatly improved.
