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.
