5 A true Gem!!tazzys | 05/03/2014 | See all tazzys's reviews (59)To say this game is poor is beyond a joke. This game is a true master piece and one worthy of the new consoles. One that certainly makes me glad i've upgraded, finally!I think that anyone that says this game is rubbish has no passion for games at all, and doesn't remember what games used to be...I know that this is available on the old consoles but the transfer is amazing. The attmosphere created is brilliant, the shadows in the game are your lifeline and the fog and mist and lighting in this game is sometimes breathtaking.The gameplay is good too, it's kind of an open world, although not in the realms of Skyrim, however its large enough and alot of your time will be dedicated to roaming the streets which look top draw.Your charater is obviously a thief and he upgrades in skills such as the bow and lock picking. He gains money from stealing goods and finding lost treasures. Im kind of an old skool gamer and its a breath of fresh air to finally have a game where you can take your time and plan your route rather than rushing in, and for doing so you get rewarded.The game has plenty of puzzles too and traps, so you aways need to watch your step and use your focus which is your main weapon and advantage.Chapter 5 is my favourate so far and the 1st time i played it i thought it was just amazing. It really is a great example of what games can be, and if like me you love gaming then you will like it to.All your missions can be replayed and it is always a bonus, if for example you want to try another style or gain more loot for achieving goals.Your main aim is not to get seen and to try and get through the game hidden, which would be a master achievement and one that is a challenge on its own.The campaign has taken me through about 11 hours so far and i've still got plenty to do with side missions and the like. So this game is more to do with the campaign than the online experience, which is also a nice break from the likes of c.o.d or bf4.My advice, put on your leathers and get this already! This is no rip off and Thief was around along time ago. Glad its back!
