Game review: Thief Deadly Shadows
Thief: Deadly Shadows was a good game. It had challenge, fun & character. You are a thief that prefers not to fight and use stealth to sneak around and steal things. You can use money to buy upgrades, but the upgrades never make you invincible. By avoiding making players unbeatable, the challenge & fun remains throughout the game. That said, I never finished this game, but I'd believe that I made it to the last level. Why was it fun? I don't know exactly, but you had a lot of choices for how you were about to solve the problem of remaining undetected or sneak-attacking nearby guards. There are multiple weapons and tools to choose from. Also, there is the investigation aspect. Based on clues that you find from reading books etc. you should make conclusions about where treasures are hidden. However, for the most part, you are expected to just randomly search premises until you find and steal enough valuables. I like the fact that there is a tracker that tells you in percentage how much you have managed to steal in a level. This makes it clear if there is more stuff to search for or not. If that wasn't in the game, it would get quite arbitrary when estimating how well you have performed. The game may get spookier as you get further into the game, which is something to keep in mind.
