Thief II: The Metal Age is truly a joy to play. It features clever gameplay, nonlinear levels, great sound effects, and long missions (the game comes on 2 CDs). It is also a hard game to master, however, relying a little too much on trial and error. Furthermore, it is not a game suited for young gamers. Still, if you like games with a dark theme and enjoy the challenge of stealth play, you will love this game. It is a must play for fans of this genre, adventure or otherwise.
