I was always a big fan of the Theif series and this game is a Thief game. It feels just like the original and is a new, fresh game all at the same time. Everywhere I go is a new,fresh place and I have be everywhere and spent over 20 hours playing this game and am not tired of it. I think people get this unrealistic view of the game and expect it to be more than it is so when they play it they get all upset and start trash talking it. The only thing I would like is if you could get a sword like in the original but that's it. I would rate this game a 9, its not perfect but it is well done.
So I've been playing this for about a week now and I liked it so much that I purchased it. That says a lot right there.
This game has SO MANY negative reviews and I'm not sure why. This is a STEALTH game. If you're looking for Halo or Assassins creed, this isn't it obviously.
This game is about being a thief. The graphics are great and the controller responds to how visible you are. It's great. It's not too simple and there are multiple different strategies that you can take to complete each mission. I personally enjoy pickpocketing people then using the takedown move or kill them. The story isn't that strong, but it is slightly a mystery.
If you enjoy being a thief in skyrim or if you enjoyed splinter cell, this game is for you. It's made by square enix so you already know that it will be at least worth playing.
Follow my advice and give this game a shot. Its slow at first but you'll love it.
