Weak

Tediousness leading to being unplayable.

First off I'd like to say I am usually very committed to finishing single player games(hence being a gamefly customer). With that said, Thief was one of the few games in the past 5 years I had to return without completely finishing it.

I'll keep this short and sweet with a pros/cons list.

The Pros:

-Decent combat system(although this isn't a combat game)
-Pretty cool gadgets with weapons such as a choke arrow or something as innovative as a water arrow
-Beautiful graphics
-Solid upgrade system

And now for the long list of cons deeming this game unplayable:

-Very poor map design(it would take so long to actually find a path with an open door all while trying to avoid the many guards in the street)
-Tedious tasks that aren't even worth the reward
-Slow and often-occurring load times
-Confusing objective points on the map
-Dull story that gives you almost no motivation to keep playing
-Unintelligent AI(I was actually able to load up my bow with an arrow and an enemy just stood there watching me while I put one between his eyes)

I had very high hopes for Thief. It is actually the first game I played since renewing my membership. However the poor gameplay, story, and level design made it impossible for me to complete the game.

I do not recommend this game unless you have a very high patience threshold. I played it for 6 hours and barely made any progress because of the confusing map, unrewarding side quests, and horrible tracking system.

In the end a very hyped up game due to a previously successful series fell victim to the modern world of gaming in which it just couldn't keep up.

4.5/10
