The voice acting was great.The storyline was okay, but for me, I was more interested in stealing and stealth than what was going on. Side missions were standard and not that hard at all. Solving puzzles did become repetitive to the point that when I had to solve one, I just went to Youtube instead to get it out of the way. I did not like them and I just wanted it to end so I could go back to thieving.
There were a few annoying things. Some guards would glitch in walkways. Sometimes the missions markers were not on point.
The navigation system was the most frustrating part of the game. It took me awhile to realize what windows opened to just rooms were I could steal and what windows opened to other parts of the map. It wasn't fun going back and forth to the Queen if I wanted to buy upgrades. It got to the point that I just stopped going and I spent my money on supplies instead. In the end, the upgrades didn't seem to matter.
Oh and the conversations between the guards. It was the same over and over and over. I mean, they should have at least programmed more conversations instead of the same one about the woman they had sexual relations with.
All in all, I enjoyed the game and the Bank Heist DLC (which I believe shouldn't be a DLC because it was just like any other side mission.)
Loading is so-so at times. Perhaps installing the game would've made it better. Not sure.
Parents be aware - the Mature rating is there for a reason - there is nudity, explicit depictions of sex and drug use, and so on.
The pros are that it's a fun game, the concept is thieving (which few games are about), and it has a pretty good story, length, and atmosphere. Doing side-missions in the city is an absolute blast.
The cons are that the city is open-world but not really like a living city, it is locked down by law enforcement to the extent that the city is more like another sneaking level, not a real-breathing city where you simply have to avoid some guards. You can't flatten against a dark wall and be invisible, so sometimes staying hidden is difficult. Having to wait for interiors to load up while navigating the city is very annoying (and yes, when you are repeatedly prying open a window or moving a pillar, that's just waiting for loading to occur). The in-game map is poorly done and confusing. The story is not epic like the previous game. And there are some glitches and locking up, but for me it wasn't too bad.
I think many of these super-low review scores are due to comparing this game to its predecessors, and it is inferior to its excellent predecessors. However if you are judging this game by it's own merit, it's a good lengthy and interesting game, I hope they make another one.
