I haven't played a Theif game before so I don't know how they have been in the past. Being that this game shares the same developers as the most recent (awesome) Tomb Raider is this just a clone of the gameplay with a different IP? The description sounds identical to TR (the focus, world exploration, combat, etc.). I loved TR so a clone wouldnt be bad but I'm just wondering if anyone else had considered this.

This would not be a tomb raider clone. The "Thief" series set the ground work for open world stealth like Assassins creed. It was also know for being one of the first games where if you shot a wall next to a guard they would react. The best way to approach this ps4 Theif game would be like Playing Assassin's Creed, But instead of kill a target, you steal all his valuables.

AC ripped off of Thief. Thief has been around since the 90's.

AC didn't rip off Thief, they are nothing alike really. If anything, Dishonored ripped off Thief. But it was a very well made rip off.

I played the very 1st Thief back in the day. It was GREAT even then.

Thief is amazing. It's all about being stealthy though. Garret is an anti-hero and he can get his butt kicked by just about every guard/"enemy" in the game.

Its not the same developer that did Tomb Raider. Crystal Dynamics developed Tomb Raider and Eidos Montreal (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) is developing Thief. Both games are being published by Square Enix.

not even close to being similar. ones a FPST franchise about getting in and out with your "loot" and the other is a TPST franchise around killing people for religious beliefs.

A question related to this. Since Thief is being released close to the end of this month, I'm wondering if it's worth waiting for it or just go ahead and get Tomb Raider? I'm sure they're both great games, and I will probably end up playing both at one point, just wondering which I should get first.

That's a tough call man. I have played through Tomb Raider 2013 twice and it is just fantastic, and I am guessing Thief will be pretty good too. If you are into methodical stealth gameplay like I am, Thief may be the answer. I'm sure there will be reviews out before the release date, just incase it's not as good as it looks.

Thief will be longer and still has new dlc on the way... Tomb raider main story is pretty short and the multi sucks nads(so just think of both being single player only)... Tomb raider does come with all dlc but other than one short (and easy like all tombs in this tomb raider) tomb and some costumes it's all for the multi... Tomb raider is mainly linear and while they tout explorations it's pretty limited especially compared to thief videos... Thief has more replay due to all the settings available like turning off target assist/one death/ no auto save.... Both great games but you will get more from thief for longer as it's longer and brand new ... Tomb raider you get what it comes with and don't expect more as it's a goty edition in all but name

The FP view kills this game for many. They should put in a 3rd person view option ala MGS, Splinter Cell, Hitman etc... to capture the hiding behind objects and sneaking/stealth vibe. You don't get that in FP view when you can't see the character. It loses a lot of the intensity and drama only 3rd person view can give.

Question I loved the "AC" series until the story was going nowhere. I won't say I'm the greatest at stealth games but is it a game I'll really enjoy if I love stealth? The only thing I'm not use too is the first person view and I'm not really sure if I'll like it. Anyway I'd like someone's opinion about the game since they've played it before.

Honestly, I think the 1st person view is best for this game. They provided an option for 3rd person view with Deadly Shadows back on the original Xbox/PC, but again in my opinion did not really live up to the titles before it. I dont think the 3rd person camera from Deadly Shadows killed the game, I just think it was more that it did not go over well with Hardcore fans of the series. I have noticed that they put a lot of emphasis on showing Garrets hands in this game. Being that you are playing the role of a thief, it makes sense to focus more on that specific body part than the entire body. However, they do have a 3rd person camera when performing certain actions like when you shimmy across a ledge. Thief is one of those games that has a very strong, dedicated fan base and I think by making this 1st person only was a nod to that fan base and necessary for a reboot of this franchise.
