    If you are a fan of first person stealth games then you cannot do any better than the Thief series. No other games provide you with the same sense of feedback of hiding in the shadows, picking locks as these games do. Splinter Cell Chaos Theory gets an honorable mention.

    I categorized below several aspects of the game which contribute to the overall score at the bottom:

    Frustration Factor: (Average) You can die a lot, but this usually means that you are taking a wrong approach to solving a problem (picking a lock, getting to a location, stealing an item, always being spotted.) Adjusting your strategy will solve the problem.

    Controls- (Above Average) You usually have very good control of your movements and actions.

    Graphics (Below Average) Due to the time when this game was released. What you find out is that game play can be more important than the graphics.

    Storyline – (Above Average) There is an intricate plot to this game. You feel like you are controllable character in a movie.

    Replay ability – (Above Average) Due to the Thief modding communities, I have spent many hours playing fan missions for this game and some of them are better than the original game.

    Length – (Above Average) It takes about 2 hours to complete a mission so you should be able to complete the game in about 30 hours.

    Environment – (Above Average) This is where Thief shines. The “sandbox” environment allows the character to move freely around a tomb, castle, street, wherever the setting is for the mission.
    The environment is not linear where you are forced to go in one direction. Instead the objective is in one location, it us up to you to find the best way to get there.

    Game Saves -(Above Average) Another nice feature is that you can save this game whenever you want. There are no checkpoints to reach. This reduces the frustration level immensely.

    Strategy / Button Masher -(Above Average) I am not a huge fan of button mashing action games. This game requires some thought, reaction, patience, and observation.

    WTF Factor -(Average) This is where you get to a point in the game and you really don’t know what you are supposed to do. There are some incidences of this in the game, but they are rare, especially compared to a lot of adventure games. They are more common in the fan missions, usually because you did not find a key located in a very unlikely spot.

    Overall Score: 87/100
