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.
