First you giveth then you taketh away - How 2014's Thief stacks up against a classic

Stephen Heller of MMGN: Reboots are often a tricky proposition from the outset. The content creators, no matter the medium, have to reinvent and reinvigorate a wealth of source material, and also be mindful that the existing iteration most likely has thousands, if not millions, of adoring fans whom are skeptical of your every move.

That's why I cringed when Eidos Montreal announced that they were rebooting Thief, a franchise that is often cited as the grandfather of the entire stealth genre. While Metal Gear Solid and Tenchu: Stealth Assassin brought the idea of stealth to the spotlight, it was 1999's Thief: The Dark Project that cemented the mechanics that went on to define the genre as a whole.
