If you expect a thief like experience don't bother. Though the game sets you up to be stealthy, the smash and grab is the only functional method to get through the game. The dialog is more a hindrance than a story telling method. Visually stunning and dark, the mechanics loose you just like the map - less way point oriented missions. Steal as much as you can, to buy little to nothing, money almost means nothing, yet you are a thief attempting to get all you can. If you can stable your way through it is a game you can be proud to say you completed, but not much else.

I could not get into the story. The mood/tone was just not interesting. The game itself was jumpy and the controls were horrid. no option for 3rd person view was realistic but also a bother as the frame jumping made me dizzy. Great on paper but not the execution expected on 3rd generation consoles. This was obviously rushed to meet demands. Hope they get a second chance.
