You play as Garrett, a master thief, who operates during dark times in The City. Crime and corruption are rampant, wealthy nobles prey on the poor, and magic and machinery coexist uneasily. As Garrett, you help the secret society of The Keepers who prophesize that the worst is yet to come. You'll use your skills to sneak into castles, mansions, prisons, cathedrals, dungeons, and museums, past armed guards, hired muscle, angry thugs, hideous monsters, and much worse to keep The City from unraveling. Cinematic 3rd person and classic immersive 1st person modes are fully supported and can be changed on the fly during play. You'll have a wealth of tools at your disposal, including lock picks, special arrows, wall climbing gloves and flash bombs.
In Thief: Deadly Shadows, gamers once again take on the role of Garrett, a master thief. Garrett is rarely seen, never caught and capable of breaking into the most ingeniously secured places. Garrett steals from the wealthy and gives to himself, making his living in the dark and foreboding City. Preferring to be left alone to ply his trade, prophecies of an impending Dark Age dictate a different plan for the thief. In Garretts efforts to prevent this approaching Dark Age, he has inadvertently roused an ancient hidden evil. Without allies, Garrett finds himself standing alone between the City and the forces that would crush it.
I love the simplicity of skulking around in the dark during medieval times. I like having a bow to fight with. Beyond that, this game is just too repetitive. Read morePublished on July 15 2004 by SBJ400
