Editors' Review

+

In the latest installment of this excellent stealth-action series, Garrett the master thief must save the world from an approaching Dark Age stoked by a mystical group known as the Keepers. In the meantime, of course, there's plenty of loot to steal. Garrett might sound like Adam West, but the environments are brilliantly rendered and the gameplay is excellent. Gamers undeterred by the massive download and system requirements will receive an excellent introduction to Thief: Deadly Shadows.

A tutorial teaches the basics of gameplay: sneaking past guards, extinguishing lights, grabbing loot, climbing walls, picking locks, immobilizing enemies, and stashing bodies. The demo involves stealing an opal from a lord before his brother can steal it. You glean information from the brother and use it to rob the lord. Tactical strategies are up to you. It's quite possible to sneak through the entire demo undetected. Alternately, you could slash and stash opponents, but the other guards will notice the carnage. Garrett's mechanical eye, which zooms in on faraway objects, helps you employ distractions such as noisemaker arrows. Despite its system demands, the variety of gameplay and excellent graphics in Thief: Deadly Shadows make the demo worth the download.

"Must play if you like sleath-action"

June 14, 2009  |  By TruthSeekr

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Excellent stealth action, extremely long and rewarding gameplay

Cons

They didn't have those steam-powered 'robots' they have in Thief:The Metal Age

Summary

Let me say this first and get it out of the way:
Back in 1998 when the original Thief:The Dark Project was launched, it was the game that INVENTED the sleath-action genre and opened doors for the others to follow.

This third installation features the same great gameplay as the previous two, with emphasis on hiding and waiting, rather than mindless shoot-to-kill.

If you're new to the Thief series, it might take you a while getting used to the concept, but it is really rewarding!!

"Still the best in stealth"

June 22, 2005  |  By tjrmichaels

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

A huge improvement graphically and the enemies are much smarter than previous versions. Love this game!

Cons

The waypoint system is both good and bad. I quite often find myself travelling a long way through various parts of the map trying to find out where I should be going - perhaps it is just me, but they are not entirely intuitive

"An excellent demo"

July 14, 2004

 |  Version: Not Found

Summary

Running on a DELL 360 workstation with 3Ghz processor, 2GB RAM and a nVidia QuadroFX 500 graphics card the games runs beautifully on max resolution setting. The only issue is that I can't see the mouse cursor so that it's hard to choose options. eg save/load a game.

"Good game, but CPU Heavy"

June 03, 2004

 |  Version: Not Found

Summary

Fun game all around, but a couple of issues. It runs choppy with the lowest settings on my Athlon XP 2600, 1 GIG memory and FX5200 video card. Even the DOOM3 and HL2 betas ran better. The AI is also a little dumb on standard difficulty. Hope they have a patch soon!
