These guys made DX:HR, had their hands in the new tomb raider and IMO, the new the thief game is looking so very awesome. I trust these guys when handling beloved franchises. They haven't let me down yet.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution was one of my favorite games in 2012. I still go back and play it from time to time; I have the deepest confidence that Thief will be a great stealth game.

Based on the rumors around the net this game is going to be disappointing. I hope it will do well as I run out of games for my PS4.

When does the review embargo lift? I predict an 85 metacritic average.

It's a review by a Spanish language videogame magazine called PlayMania. I speak Spanish and I read that magazine and I think they are very reliable. I usually agree with their reviews in any case.

And my translation:

The Good:
stealth,
fluid control with lots of possibilities,
aesthetic design,
sound.

The Bad:
sometimes the AI ​​seems blind,
the pacing falls short in the last third part of the game,
load times.
————————-
Graphics: 88
The lighting is great. The character models of the common people are lacking.
Sound: 90
Fun: 92
The gameplay mechanics are engrossing, despite combat's lack of importance.
Length/Replayability: 86
Around 10 to 15 hours, depending on the play-style. There are a lot of side missions.
OVERALL: 90 out of 100
Garret returns to thieving in full form.

They also gave Castlevania Lords of Shadows 2 a 95 out of 100 (for all the naysayers of that game).
