This is a game called 'Thief' and you are supposed to steal valuable items, while not getting caught. Self explanatory right?
Well, despite that being pretty obvious, every singe "professional" critic, YouTuber and Twitch streamer that I have watched plays this game like some sort of medieval Call of Duty game, knocking out guards and killing everything that moves before picking up the loot. Then they proceed to complain about the terrible level design. Terrible level design? You eliminated 75% of the level design!
Let me explain.
Every single level and scenario in this game is a giant puzzle. The reward for cracking the puzzle is sitting in a vault at the opposite end of this mansion, asylum, morgue etc. The guards, their patrol routes, the torches that they carry lighting the environment are all huge parts of this puzzle and almost the entirety of the level design.
You are not supposed to to knock the guards out. You are supposed to navigate the shadows, pickpocket the guards, sneak by and steal the loot sitting in that vault from under their noses. Yes, from under their noses, not over their dead bodies. You are a master thief, not a murderer. Killing or knocking the guards out is like a taking a Rubik's Cube and instead of twisting it to solve the puzzle, you take out the individual pieces and replace them in the correct spots.
Let me give you an example.
One of the first chances you get to play with the guards and steal loot from a chest in an area they are patrolling happens in the prologue. You will reach a small courtyard with two guards and a chest with loot.Read more ›
Mechanics and AI:
The mechanics in the game are quite fantastic. Whether it's stealing every golden pen or cup in your sight, the stealing mechanic in this game is just absolutely fun and adds to the overall experience. You will definitely feel like a master thief when sneaking into a Jewelry store and stealing as much loot as you can muster.
There is also a lock picking system in the game that at first seems like it's unnecessary because of how easy it is at first.Read more ›
Graphics are freaking fantastic! Very detailed and really smooth. The game is first person which I didn't like but got used to and i think added to the challenge a bit. The gameplay reminded me a bit of the last of us without the killing and scare factor. Took me a little to find my bearings as I kept knocking guards out get past them and steal. Once I tried to not get physical with them it was a different game entirely and very challenging, but sometimes flat out annoying. Story line was interesting enough to keep me playing past the points in which I wanted to stop. This game takes patience to play so if you don't have any, do not buy it cuz you will hate it. I think I have a fair amount of it myself but I barely finished and thats most likely due to lack of choices. If you like puzzles though and have the time and patience this could be a great game for you.
It is a decent game, definately a one and done and most certainly not for all. As far as reccomendation goes I would say if you know what this game is and are looking then yes get it. But if your looking at this because you want use your next gen console now, I would pass on this one.

My all time favourite game. I used to play it on a PC Theif I, Theif II and Gold Edition. Similar to Dishonored but no magic.Published 1 month ago by Aanand KTM
