Evan "You do a fair bit of sneaking in Thief, but it does nothing to detract from the rotted plot, shoddy design and cavalcade of bugs."
Seeing some of these review scores, I'm starting to wonder if I'm playing the same game. I mean, it ain't perfect by any stretch of the imagination; but what I've played so far has been immense fun, with a lot of charm to it. My friends and wife seem to be enjoying what they've played so far also...
Exactly! im playing this game and enjoying it alot. This is another reason that show how pointless the reviews are, because it all goes down to what you like and the taste of games you enjoy.
Exactly. We're all different and like different things. I bet none of us really cares about what scores a certain movie gets. We simply watch the movies that look interesting to us. We like what we like and we don't care what opinions other people have about it. Games should be the same way. As a gaming community I think we place entirely too much importance on scores and especially metacritic averages. People look at the negative scores or the average and they say "this game sucks", but they don't seem to realize that they might just happen to agree with the many higher scores the game received, or they might, indeed, like it more than any of the reviewers.
3/10 should be reserved for games that are broke and don't work at all.
Agreed. It does seem a bit strange. I rarely 100% agree with reviews, but some of the reviews for this game just feel completely off. Odd.
It is pretty buggy, from what I played. The AI is atrocious.
Yeah, I honestly don't know what game some of these guys are playing. I know that people have different tastes, but some of the stuff they say doesn't even make sense and is objectively not true. In any case there are dozens of very positive reviews as well so obviously not everybody sees this game the same way. 9s http://www.neoseeker.com/Ar... http://www.softpedia.com/re... http://business.financialpo... http://xboxoz360.wordpress.... http://slumz.boxden.com/f13... http://ps4n.ru/recenziya-na... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.eurogamer.it/art... 8.9 http://www.gamestar.hu/thie... 8.6 http://www.impulsegamer.com... http://digitalchumps.com/ga... http://it.ign.com/recension... 8.5 http://gamingtrend.com/revi... http://www.insidegamingdail... http://www.thegameheadz.com... http://www.laps3.com/analis... http://www.game-over.com/co... http://www.pcgames.de/Thief... 8.3 http://multiplayer.it/recen... 8.2 http://gamehaunt.com/thief-... http://www.vandal.net/anali... 8.1 http://canadianonlinegamers... 8s http://www.gameinformer.com... http://www.joystiq.com/2014...
I really had high hopes for this game purely because it's from Eidos Montreal... It just wasn't the game I thought it was gonna be... maybe I may have overestimated it.
A 3 out of 10? This is guy is seriously hard to impress.
Bugs or not, no way is this a 3/10 .. he getting this confused with that Rambo game or something?!
Every next gen so far has been a real disappointment. Well Ryse and Dead Rising were great but a little short.
Haven't bought it yet but I was planning on it, maybe not now..Oh and Knack was kind of..Good, but not great.
I've got 2.5-3 hours into Thief and although it is some fun in all honesty it is a little disappointing! It doesn't deserve a 3/10. A 7/10 is a bit more realistic. I was really hoping for a home run of a game here and it just didn't happen! Sigh.....
A little harsh but not too off the mark. A lot of next gen console owners are rating the game. Because we haven't actually had a new game in a while. Most I'd give this game is a 5. It is ok, simple as that.
Lol a 3? Riiiiight
News flash, news flash! People of The Internet Fail to Read Review and Judge Based on Bogus Number Score Alone! I had fun with it, I never said I didn't. I thought the story was egregiously awful, aggressively jammed in your face every step of the way and that got in the way of the fun of the classic Thief experience that was there at the core. I played it on the PC, not a next gen console and it was buggy and broken. A host of audio, graphical and AI bugs plaguing me during my play through. Plenty of other people have found the same thing. It wasn't unplayable, but the touchy AI and few crashes I experienced went a long way to coloring how I felt about the over all experience presented. I only wish to give a bit of insight, as there seems to be an alarming number of people lampooning me for the useless number I was forced to attach to the review instead of discussing what I thought. Cheers! Evan
