Thief: Deadly Shadows

This game is awesome. Even after the dissolution of Ion Storm, they managed to reassemble the core of the old team and produce an excellent sequel. My only gripe is that it was too short. I managed to run through the entire game in a week. Now I have to play it by giving myself harder goals on the highest difficulty level while I wait for the next installment.

If you've never played any of the Thief games, I suggest you do so. Go grab the originals first, you get more of the storyline that way (and an excellent storyline it is, too.) Best sneaker series, ever.

If you're going to buy Deadly Shadows, just make sure you meet the system requirements, as this is a pretty high end game. I ended up having to replace my video card in order to run it...

Well, as far as the consoles go, yes. I bought the PC version.

I'll personally vouch for the first two, they were excellent. It's a story-driven game, and the writers were top notch. My friends and I still played the first two from time to time while waiting for Deadly Shadows to be released. Since it is a series, you miss a lot of background on the game without the first two...

Holy crap! What kind of card did you buy? The one I got was a 256Mb NVidia GeForce FX 5200. It cost me $140, and that was paying CompUSA prices. I normally avoid the place like the plague, but it was the only shop out of 6 in the immediate area that had this good a card with a PCI configuration.

And here I thought I was buying something up on the scale to stay ahead of the advances in game graphics. You really went full-bore on that one.

i just bought this game today. i've played through the tutorial level and am in the process of going through the second level. but from what i've seen so far, the game seems a lot more linear than it's been portrayed. maybe i just can't wait for fable to come out, but i was expecting a lot more freedom. As of right now (just because it's the most similiar xbox game i can think of) splinter cell seemed a lot more open-ended than this. am i wrong about this, or can i save myself some cash and return it?

The flexibility comes between missions. Once you get out into the city, you've got people to pickpocket and mug, guards to avoid, houses to burgle, fences to visit to sell loot, shops to pick up more equipment...

after getting into this game, my xbox (along with the kitty laying on top of it) almost exploded from the awesomeness that is Thief. extremely entertaining and amusing (har har, funny accents) to play and experiment with. it runs super smooth on xbox, which is awesome compared to how it'd be slogging along on my laptop. i'm not too sure if i'll be interested in playing it again, though.
