Having played the original Thief games, and enjoyed them as a kid i was excited to pick this up and give it a try. Within the first hour however i was not very happy with what i was seeing. Poor voice acting and lip synching. Very slow texture pop in. Bland and mostly unexplained story line with characters that are impossible to bond with in any sense. When i play games i want to have a connection with what is going on to really become immersed in the story line. I didn't get that with thief. The lock pick mechanic was super lazy compared to fallout or skyrim, neither of which are theft of stealth based games. That immediately turned me off this game. Side missions are all the same. The environment is interesting but becomes extremely boring when you realize there is nothing interesting going on, other than a little steampunk influence here and there.

I did like the tools you have available such as the the water and flat arrows. Being able to hit a light switch from across the room was pretty awesome. I wish that you could shoot out electric lights, which would make sense but you can't. I also really enjoyed being able to cut painting out of their frames and check pictures for hidden switches. I just wish there was more of that in the game and not so much looking for cheap loot. And the whole collection thing i didnt really enjoy that much. Im a thief, i steal to make tons of money, not to have a big collection in my hideout.

Overall i really didn't enjoy this game even though stealth games are one of my favorite genres. I had to force myself to play it and finally sent it back before i could complete it. I just found it to be totally uninteresting and having played it on the PS4 i was expecting much more than what was released.

I don't know what went wrong here, but the game is just so lackluster. Sure the graphics are nice, and that's a good thing. But what really frustrated me was the games inability to have a good plot. Most of the game is filled with levels where you are just running around collecting random items on the side of the street. It lacks structure. Nothing about this game is interesting, and that really upsets me. I was very excited to play this game when it was announced, but now that I've played it, I can't say I'm very happy with it. For a next-gen title, this game should have been much better, and for these reasons I'm giving this game a score of 6 out of 10.
