Summary

There's tense, creative stealth action to be had in Thief's fun-but-flawed triumph over technical flubs, wasted narrative potential, and cringeworthy dialogue.

We like

  • Lots of stealth options and items
  • Dense, atmospheric environment
  • Fun, fluid movement

We dislike

  • Forced narrative with poorly explained supernatural elements
  • Repeat dialogue, lazy voice-acting
  • A few ugly animations and NPCs
