Weak

Good concept, terrible delivery

This game was a waste of time. The stealth focus of the game was laughable. On the higher difficulties, stealth was impossible. On the lower, the AI was brain dead. Forget about combat. Garrett is incapable, and poorly equipped. It isn't until the game is nearly complete that he gains any advantage at all. But, the worst thing about this game was the mindless back and forth, and the UNBELIEVABLY long load times. I wouldn't recommend this game for anyone who loves the challenge of a "no-kill" game. Try one of the Splinter Cell games, instead. I love the concept of an all-stealth, no-kill game. They can be very challenging. But, the promise of this one fell very short of what they were able to deliver.

If you like the hitman type genre of games you'll like this one as well. Same game basis but set in the late middle ages early victorian age. Loved it!!

Thief is a so-so game. If you like Splinter Cell, then rent this game. its graphics are below average and controls arent the best but arent the worst either. but it is also fun because u have an arrow and u just sneek around and pickpocket. the bad thing is that it takes about 4 arrows to the head before killing a guy but 2 to u and ur dead.
