It’s impossible to look at Thief and not compare it to Dishonored (which is heavily inspired by the original Thief games), Deus Ex Human Revolution, and of course the original series. As reboot, it does everything it needs to, to bring the core mechanics to 2014. As Eidos Montreal’s second game, it shows that the studio learned much in the process of making Human Revolution (especially in regards to boss battles). But as a game on its own, Thief a fantastic ride and great game in which to merely be a thief in. It’s just a shame that it exists in such an uninteresting and disjointed world.
