It's alright to me

I didn't really have an issue with the game other than it was pretty choppy on the cut scenes. I would expect better. Also, gameplay was good, its just a parallel of Dishonored (minus the magic). I played through about 45 minutes of it and just stopped bc I felt like I was back to playing Dishonored again.

Just did not live up to potential

While this game is not terrible by any means, it does leave much more to be desired. At times, the stealth aspect of the game was fun. The looting system was somewhat rewarding, though repetitive. The large impressive city you peer out at is really not very open to exploration. The graphics feel almost black and white and are void of any color. The storyline lacked depth, and I never really felt connected to the main character. I can't help but feel that this game was an inferior version of the great game "Dishonored". I was leaning towards giving this game a "6", but the uninspiring game play combined with the drab textures made me settle at a "5".

A Little Meh

I hadn't played any of the previous Thief games so I didn't really have any expectations going into it. All I knew of it was the vid from the commercial that played a few months back when they were pushing it. When I popped it in and the same vid played on my own PS4 I was really floored by just how poor the quality of it was compared to what I saw on tv. Not only was it of a much poorer quality but it also had a touch of lag to it as well. It kept that lag throughout almost all of the vid sequences for me.

As far as the gameplay went I would say it was ok. I tend to go more for the aggressive hero sort of games when you can take on just about anything head on, but this definitely isn't that. God be with you if you decide to take someone on head on with your stick. It was a pretty small "world" so it usually didn't take too long to get from one point to another but the lack of a fast travel was pretty annoying. You had to keep avoiding the same soldiers over and over again as they would respawn.

By the time I got to the end I was really ready for it to be over and had no desire to go back to do any further exploring. I kept this game a few weeks widdling away at it and I rarely spend that much time with one in my hands. The time wasn't spent playing it but more like putting off playing it because it wasn't a real attention grabber for me.
