Thief IGN Review

by on March 7, 2014
Bottom Line
 
Thief has some strong stealth mechanics going for it, and getting away unseen with a big haul of loot can be an enormous challenge, but doesn’t always put that to good use. Between the hit-or-miss missions is an extremely annoying city hub map and a weak story full of bland characters, and Garrett himself isn’t as sure-footed as a master thief ought to be. Ignoring the story and cherrypicking the best side missions is the best way to approach it.

A few wordsGarrett, the Master Thief, emerges from the shadows into the City. In this brutal place, where the Baron’s Watch spreads a rising tide of fear and oppression, his skills are the only things he can count on. Even the most cautious citizens and their best-guarded possessions are not safe from his reach. As an uprising emerges, Garrett finds himself entangled in growing layers of conflict. Lead by Orion, the voice of the people, the tyrannized citizens will do everything they can to reclaim the City from the Baron’s grasp. The revolution is inevitable. If Garrett doesn’t get involved, the streets will stream red with blood and the City will tear itself apart.
