 Play on Modern System

I don't think I need to go into any detail on how great these games all are. I played Thief 3 first and (despite a number of people hating it) thought it was absolutely fantastic. Thief 2 is probably the best of the series for me, massive, tough and very rewarding.

In terms of getting the first two and play on modern machines, I've had it working XP-32bit, XP-64bit, Vista-32bit, Win7-32bit and Win7-64bit. This box includes the latest patches for the first two games (the "gold" editions). So you'll really only need to run compatibility set tp XP.

If you have a multi-core CPU however, you'll need to ensure that you set the game to run using only a single CPU. To do this, start the game normally, press CTL+ALT+DEL and select start task manager. Go to the processes tab and locate the Thief.exe, Thief2.exe and right-click it. Then select set affinity. Leave only one CPU ticked and press ok. Close task manager and then select the minimise game from the task bar. You should then be able to play to your hearts content.

There are applications that will allow you set the CPU affinity at launch, I'll let you google for those.

Great games, definitely pick them up for this price.

 One of the gaming worlds best kept secrets€

This has to be amongst my all time favourite series of games.

I was given Thief, The dark Project as a birthday gift many years ago, and at first, just didn't fancy it at all. It was therefore relegated to a shelf and forgotten about. Until that is one weekend I was feeling ill. I had nothing new left to play so reluctantly, loaded it up.

All I can say is what a fool I was. That is, leaving it sitting there for such a long time. What can I say, Instantly, I was hooked!

Aptly labelled, 'First Person Sneaker' this game takes you into the world of stealth, where all out assaults will see you lying in a bloodied heap. There is just something about sneaking around, right under someone's nose that is so appealing.

Yes, by today's standards the graphics are dated, but don't let this put you off. The Thief series contains some of the must memorable and engaging environments I have ever encountered. Even more so given the mythical time period in which this game is set. With a combination of the medieval and Victorian world you will often find yourself just wandering around looking at stuff. But it's the stealth which really makes these games.

Sitting in a shadow may not sound like much fun, but don't be fooled. Sit, watching and waiting for your chance to blackjack someone, not knowing if they will see you, is very addictive indeed. Furthermore, once you venture out of the city and into the more barren locations, there is this sense of being truly alone.

And there is more! The environments are truly immersive; this is not your typical linear game; each new level and environment offering numerous variations in how it can be traversed and tasks completed. Which makes for a very enjoyable experience as it allows you to return and play these games time and time again; each visit discovering something new.

Thankfully, the creators didn't take the rout of the continuously sporning enemy. Rather, there are set numbers in each level which can be dealt with as you see fit. Though don't be fooled into thinking that they are all easy to deal with, or find for that. Nope, some are hidden within the depths of each level, and only true exploration can yield their location and the goodies which they often defend. Furthermore, as the difficulty settings go up, so do the tasks. Yes, you are there to make money for yourself, it is called 'Thief' after all!

Each environment has its treasures, some easily located, others requiring skill and patience. Not to mention, at higher difficulty settings, you are no longer allowed to kill none combatants, who, if seen by, will run off to find the nearest gaud.

Thief 2 and 3 both continue along these well though out lines, encompassing huge story arches which reach across all three games.

The Thief series has to be one of the best kept secrets in the gamming worlds. So go on, give them a go, you know you are just dying to sneek up behind someone and blackjack them for their gold. Mwhahaha.

 Great era for gaming

Thief one and two were absolute gems. Excellent story driven missions which all comes together with an added twist. The gameplay was also good and the level design (for its time) created some very immersive experiences.

Sadly the development team broke away, as most of the best ones do :(

Thief three, although a great game, lacked in the gameplay, and when released had an AI difficulty reset problem. However, it can be fixed by running a program called "Andrew's Thiefbot" read his addendum in regards to the latest patch released by the developers of Thief 3 not fixing the problem.

Apart from the above problem (which can be fixed), the third title maintains the quality of stories and twists, as well as a great atmosphere.

It would make me happy to see Thief 4 in the pre-order charts :)

 Fab!!

If you are like me and looking forward to Thief 4, then u might want to revisit the first three.
Thief Gold is the 1st and set the standard for the others. In my opinion Thief 2 and 3 are the best in the series.
Get this collection and re-live Garrett, The Master Thief's exploits.
If u are new to the games then give them go! U will not be disappointed!!

 Best games in the world

Surely Thief 1 must be my favourite games of all times.
Graphics were always so so, but it's all so stylish, and the sound is the real star (ambient and voices). And is there a scarier game around? Zombies? The ghosts in the cathedral! I still shudder!
And now playing flawlessly on my Win 7 x64 system, for a fiver. Thank you!
