In this latest stealth gaming title gamers assume the role of Master Thief Garrett. Will this addition to the franchise be a major heist or another petty crime?
PROS
Strong stealth gameplay
CONS
Poor storyline; Boring protagonist
VERDICT
Thief performs well as a stealth-based gaming title, with the strong use of lighting and shadows supporting avoidance and evasion gameplay over brutal confrontation. But that’s about it. We had high hopes for Thief, considering its been more than five year’s since the franchise spawned a title. Unfortunately this time round, at R700, it does little to win players over.
