Dont buy this game, instead rent it, and give it a chance, master the controls and it will grow on you.
Pros: Great graphics, you can tell the creators took their time and put effort into putting out a nice title.
Story line, cut scenes kept me going through the game, kept my interest.
Ability to upgrade items / slight customization despite not being an RPG
A nice change of game-style and a nice title to try.
Controls are sketchy, sometimes not doing what you want. Not the perfect set up. Extremely annoying when your playing a sneaky game, and your character keeps automatically dashing. ( dashes Away from a lockpick in the middle of picking, dashes in the middle of moving alerting enemies, when you are supposed to hit a to dash, it would do it on its own - big problem)
Some enemies are only defeatable with a certain item/weapon, a little annoying, limits your creativity.
The end of the game was meh, nothing special.
Somewhat repetitive and mundane like assassins creed, doing same stuff over and over.
Achievements are something you have to go out of your way for and do things a certain way, its their way of creating replay-ability. So if you like achievements I think I got only 200 or so completing the whole game.
I thought thought Thief was a great game. I did once have the load glitch but I figured out that it was because I had closed the game from the dashboard without exiting to the game's menu first. Never had a problem after i started exiting to the menu before closing the game. My friends and I never noticed any problems with game play mechanics. As for the graphics, they may not have been the best Xbox one could have done, but its not graphics that make an amazing game its the story and characters.
I'm a pretty big fan of stealth games, so I was excited about this one. Honestly, the game just failed to captivate me from the beginning. I really don't know what it is about it, but the game is just meh. It's boring. Don't waste your time with it.
