Thief: Deadly Shadows Review

Thief Deadly Shadows was going to be called Thief 3, but they were worried about the Xbox so it's only technically the third game. Time for a Sneaky Upgrade!

    • Talking about the list, Subnautica got a "sequel" called Below Zero: same planet, slightly later chronologically, new cold mechanic, some related characters, main characters got nothing (I think? haven't fully played the EA right now). And Below Zero is almost out of early access (last update before breaking out). Good chance for dual feature.

  • The Sneaky Upgrade reminded me a lot of DX2's Visible Upgrade. The interface, options, the names themselves. It was almost like a coincidence. Yes they are both made by the same person. What a madman.

  • Ion Storm - blaming console for their shortcomings and getting away with because most of my fellow pc gamers are morons. (other games on xbox or xbox/PC multiplats were able to do complex things that Ion claimed could not be done, only to later admit as much, but no one wanted to listen to THAT and just repeat lies)

  • Man I would watch my friend play this all the time. Right now I'm playing through a vr thief style game. Its decent but I have some critiques, I'm going to make a review on it after I'm done with it.

  • I think somebody on the team played a lot of N64 games, thought "console players love pushing their faces against every wall to find collectibles" and thus the inconsistent loot was created.

  • In regards to Shalebridge Cradle, looking back I think overstretching that level was not such a bad thing, since from the start I really wanted to get out of there, and more than few times it was like "just that and I'm done" but it wasn't done, and the dreadful desperation and fear that it will never end really amplified the horror feeling.

  • It really does seem like they were trying to make another Deus Ex game instead of another thief game. AI opponents fighting each other, different factions you can side with (sort of), increased focus on the ability to kill vs mercy, hubs with side missions and secrets you can find through exploration, and a tonne of text dumped around the map with lore about the game. Thief: Invisible War indeed...

The Cradle level scared the shit out of me, when I was cuaght in the "Cradle's memory" I was spooked, then went running towards a nearest door and shut it behind me, but a frigging huanted patient came on to me the momment I opened the door. I just wanted to get out from that place then.
