Thief - Stealing A Lot, Apart From Much Of Your Attention (review @IM_PLAYIN)

IM PLAYIN takes a look at Thief, points out what's good about it and discusses why it's probably worth your time / money.

"So Garret, everyone’s favourite thief (apart from Robin Hood), is back and this time he’s on the next-gen. Now I’m not overly big on the Thief series, I played one a good fear years ago – I couldn’t tell you which one or what it was like, mind. From what I can gather though, this game is set a year after an incident in which a slightly cult-like ceremony being performed by an evil baron and his band of not so merry men causes a massive blue explosion, possibly killing Garret’s trainee thief, Erin, and definitely knocking Garret out cold, giving him a mild case of amnesia. Garret awakes to find the city in turmoil as the disgruntled proletariat plot against the evil baron and his ‘gloom’ inducing policies directed at the work-force. Obviously, all is not as it seems and it’s up to Garret to uncover the sinister goings on in the city, confront the baron, find out what the hell the blue explosion was and steal literally anything that isn’t bolted down. They called the game Thief, but it really should have been tiled ‘Kleptomaniac’, because you will be stealing anything and everything from expensive decorative masks to rusty old scissors."
