The potential story line had such great promise for this game. However, it feels like it was rushed with very little User Acceptance Testing. The biggest problems with this game are decision about basic controls that were made early in the games development
I found the character controls on the PS3 to be so clunky and counter intuitive. After a couple hours I ejected the game and sent it back.
Movement made me feel trapped. Why can't I climb over boxes and scale the side of a building? Plus I felt like I was forced into a very linear movement path. Being a Thief there should be an endless number of ways to accomplish my goals.
PS to the game designers - The jump/climb button should ALWAYS be X, in this game it is L2 which doesn't make any sense.
Graphically I doesn't make any sense that that screen goes blurry when every the character runs.
In the end this game was just frustrating that no mater how good the story line could have been it didn't make up for it.
i got it for my ps3. was very much looking forward to it as i prefer games with stealth, secrecy, and skill. the particular disc i got had a bug in it on the very first level. youre supposed to lock pick a safe hidden behind a painting but no matter how hard i pushed the button, the function wouldnt happen on the game. and you cant continue unless you first pick the lock. i was stuck and it wasnt my fault. i googled it and turns out its a pretty common problem. but i had no desire to send it back and wait for another one with no guarantee it would be fixed. plus every other review i read is about how disappointing the game was. so maybe it was a blessing. good luck.
The game is pretty good. The only problem I had with it was one part of the game. Can't say which part it is since it would spoil it for those that have not played it yet. But other then that I liked it just not that one part.
