Howdy GiantBomb Community, let me let you know confidential: I love covertness games. I love stowing away in shadows, watching monitors, concentrating on their ways and afterwards slipping past them without them in any event, realizing that I was there. I love sitting in a dim corner, hanging tight for a chance to take a stab at picking a lock, trusting a gatekeeper won't come around the bend while I'm quickly attempting to play a smaller than usual game. Also, the new Thief, regardless of some minor (and some major) blemishes permits me to do all of this. Presently, let me make it exceptionally understood: This isn't intended to be an "Alex and Patrick and Jeff and Brad and each and every individual who detests this game are off-base and moronic control centre casuals and large poppyheads! " (hehe, get it? Since you gather poppies in Thief and it sounds a piece li....okay, alright I'll quiet down) string, not the least bit. However, I need to offer you, dear peruser, an alternate perspective on this game. Since I extremely appreciate it. Likewise, I won't state "as I would see it" anyplace, in light of the fact that everything here is only my viewpoint and that's it, presumably even less,
Furthermore, trust me, I'm really astonished in light of the fact that I was prepared to can't stand this game. (Definitely, I actually got it, I know). Before the delivery, it appeared to be a watered-down adaptation of Thief 3, complete with a lot of dumb activity groupings, no opportunity to investigate and an awful plot. Also, portions of that are valid (the story, Jesus Christ, the story....). Presently I additionally need to say that the discussion regarding Thief and secrecy games overall on the new bombast in a real sense made me extremely upset. Indeed, in a real sense in a real sense. Cause, assuming I recall accurately, one of the grievances was, that you can't battle 3 watchmen immediately or flicker around like in Dishonored. Be that as it may, as far as I might be concerned, this is the meaning of a covertness game. The significance of secrecy is somewhat the quintessence of...well a covertness game, isn't that so? The second you make the battle a simpler and faster choice the game quits being a secrecy game and turns into an activity game with discretionary covertness. That happened to Dishonored.
Try not to misunderstand entirely me, I love Dishonored. I completed it multiple times and love all the DLC they put out. In any case, Dishonored was not an incredible secrecy game. The most awesome aspect of secrecy games is that pressure, when you sit in a dim corner and implore a gatekeeper doesn't see you. On the off chance that you can simply kill said watch with no work or outcomes then, at that point, indeed, all the strain promptly vanishes. Same on the off chance that you can just easily twist to one more dim spot whenever. Envision a quicksave in Spelunky. Or then again in Dark Souls. Indeed, you don't need to utilize it right? I can simply reload whenever I've been spotted right? In any case, this is definitely not the equivalent. No doubt I will not get the achievement (good gracious!) yet no big deal either way. Be straightforward: If you care about the Souls games, would you genuinely see no problems assuming they carried out a Quicksave button? For my contention, I'm simply going to imagine that you won't really care for it and continue on.
Presently, Thief does one thing specifically incredibly, well and that is the trouble menu. You can truly make the game as hard as you need. I've generally loved adaptable trouble and Thief is essentially a wet dream for me. (this time not in a real sense). The manner in which I play, I bomb the mission if I am knockout or kill anyone, get spotted or get injured and I've handicapped non-basic overhauls, the centre meter and the reticule. Also, I genuinely love it. It's not comparable to Thief 1 or 2 or even 3 however it is an awesome (and I prefer not to utilize the expression) "in-your-face" secrecy game. I wouldn't fret calmly looking out for a roof, searching for an opening and afterwards plunge in. Cause let me tell you: The sensation of pick stashing a gatekeeper, after carefully concentrating on your environmental factors and different watchmen is just....it's simply extraordinary.
Anyway, assuming you like sitting in the dull corner and being pitifully underpowered, in the event that you appreciate learning the way of gatekeepers articulating similar 3 lines of dialogue again and again, on the off chance that you wouldn't fret that the story is somewhat "blah" then....maybe allow Thief an opportunity?
Well, I composed immeasurably a lot about this, so thanks for assuming that you really read every last bit of it. Likewise, you could have previously understood that English isn't my first language and I ought to be substantially more familiar with it, so go ahead and call attention to any missteps I made.
