(due to some technical difficulties, the first two games may need a little "coaxing" to run smoothly on the latest computers, but thousands of faithful Thief fans have managed it without much issue, and they are willing to lend a hand to any who need help. The TTLG.com Thief forums are probably the best place to find answers or ask a question)
PS - There are also hundreds of "fan missions" available free. These are finely crafted single-player "maps" you can download and play after finishing the main storyline. In fact, there are a few fan created campaign sets, made by teams of ultra-dedicated super-fans over multiple years, that rival the full-length games themselves! In effect, you're getting far more than three games with this deal. Download missions at KeepofMetalandGold.com, ThiefMissions.com, and other repositories.
I have heard a lot of complaints from people over the years saying these games are difficult. I don't get it, honestly. I suppose this stems from lots of people having no patience and just wanting to run around like maniacs, shooting everything. Well, you don't have and never will get any guns :p And your sword, well, you're better off without that thing (OK, except for haunts - though you really SHOULD be sneaking past them, too - but, hey, to each his own playstyle. I'm never against piling all the unconscious Bafford guards in his pool, after all :p).
Unlike so many PC games of today, Thief I & II feel very solid. You do not feel like some obese person skating around like so many of the console ports of today feel (is it just me? :p).
The gameplay is extremely un-linear, and exploration & paying attention are rewarded. I could play through these games endlessly (and have... and will some more).
Not only is the replayability high for the games as they come, but if you tack on the insane amount of fan missions made by us crazy Thief fanatics, you have hours upon hours of gameplay at your disposal. And it's not just some hacky garbage or crappy "maps" from wannabe-devs either - the fan missions are often pure genius... testing the boundaries of the dark engine & doing unimaginably beautiful things with it!
So, yeah, then there's "Thief Deadly Shadows.Read more ›
Well, let me start off by saying that, yes, the collection is definitely worth it for the first two games alone. The original Thief games by Looking Glass studios definitely belong in anyone's list of Top 10 best games ever made. A deeply developed setting, engaging story, gameplay and atmosphere immersive enough that it overshadows the few small bugs that pop up now and then. Thief 1 and 2 are fun games well worth playing.
Thief 3, not so much. The levels are much smaller and lose a lot of the exploration element that made the first two games so much fun, the controls are not as tight and the story, while good, doesn't quite live up to the original two. All of these would have been forgivable if not for some jarring inconsistencies in the world details that repeatedly took me out of the game - including one with the Keeper Assassins that is so bad that I'm not sure it isn't just a glitch in the AI programing. It's kind of a shame, actually, because with some of the gameplay changes they made, along with the vastly improved graphics and AI, this game could have been better than even Thief 2, the highlight of the series, but as it stands, I'd rather play the other two over it.
That's the game themselves. The only problem you might find is that the first two games are incompatible with duo-core processors, making them unplayable on modern computers without a special emulator program, which any of the many Thief fansites will be happy to point you to. Me, I still have an old computer that the games will run on, so it was definitely worth the purchase for me. If you want to consider yourself a true Gamer, these are games you have to play.
