What are the good things about this game?? Oh, my, where to start?? It's the best game ever invented, if you like to do more than shoot things. It's immersive, addictive and totally awesome. The only way to understand is to try it. Many of us here have been playing Thief for well over 2 years and are still at it almost every day. Short forays are made to try other games out, but we always come back to Thief.

When you finish the original games and are totally addicted, there are well over 200 Fanmade Missions available for free download that you can play, as well, with more coming out all the time, so you never run out of things to play. The quality of some of the newer FMs is truly astounding and I'm sure the original creators of Thief had no idea some of this stuff could even be accomplished with the Dark Engine. There are also 2 HUGE FanMission packs in production that will hopefully be ready sometime this year. They each contain multiple missions that should be fantastic.

So, basically, load it up and try it out. It's the only way to find out for sure if you're one of the people who will find it truly amazing. I hope you do! :) Just remember, it's not meant to be played as a shooter and to truly appreciate it, you need to take the time to learn how to sneak and use the shadows to your best advantage.

You've tried all of the other FPS games on the market and you are tired of the same thing over and over again. :mad:

You don't like AI that shoot on first sight because that isn't very realistic. :rolleyes:

You are tired of games that focus on "Eye Candy" over depth, immersion, and atmosphere. :(

You found a version of Thief in the bargain bin. :cool:

You are ready to experience the dreaded Sudden Heart Attack Syndrome that no other game can cause! :eek:


But best of all, you wish to become a member of the best forum on the internet.

Perhaps, but the Thief system requirements are relatively low at this point, so unless your system is older than something like a Pentium 2 300 or so then you're probably just fine to get started at least :)

The game is very hard to find. I cannot find it in any on-line stores. I see it in e-bay. Good luck. It's worth the effort.:)

The best things about the game:
* The guards cannot see you if you stick to the shadows.
* The guards will hear you if you don't walk carefully.
* You have limited weapons, so you must stay undetected.
* The game has ambient background sound, like in movies, so that you sometimes feel safe and sometime get the idea that something terrible is just around the corner.
* You can pick up and use all kinds of objects which have no specific purpose and use them (for instance) to help you climb over a wall.
