I live for the sneaky stealth games. I waited for a while to play another Thief game. My favorite genre and my favorite time setting for a game.
The stealth system is great in this game but the other parts of this game bring it way down.
If I got into a combat situation I just reload, its not funor rewarding as... lets say Assassin's Creed or Dishonored.
The world navigation is pretty bad, due to what seems random loading screens and not being able to use obvious path ways shown on the map. Not knowing which path leads to a loading screen kind of bummed me out, because if you're going the wrong way,you're stuck in another loading screen going back.
The story is interesting during the game but the ending is well... not an ending and nothing is explained.
I still enjoyed the game, the main missions are great due to lack of loading screens and so are the "big" side missions. The small "thief" side quests are fun but can take a while for you to get across the city due to all the loading screens.
I beat this game in over 15 hours, did every mission. Before the start of the very last mission I was getting tired of the game only because the navigation is so bad. I didn't care in the beginning.
This game is fun and worth a play through but don't expect an amazing ending.
