About This Game

You are Garrett, the master thief. Rarely seen and never caught, Garrett is the best that ever was. Able to sneak past any guard, pick any lock, and break into the most ingeniously secured residences. Garrett steals from the wealthy and gives to himself, making his living in the dark and foreboding City. Here crime and corruption are commonplace, wealthy nobles prey on the poor and each other, and magic and machinery coexist uneasily. World weary and cynical, Garrett wants nothing more than to be left alone to ply his trade. But things never work out that way.
  • Cutting-edge Action Stealth Gameplay - Hide in the shadows, sneak past the guards, or ambush them from the darkness!
  • Huge Arsenal of Thieves' Tools - Including lock picks, a blackjack, arrows, wall climbing gloves, oil flasks, flash bombs, and a dagger.
  • An Entire City to Explore - Break into any building, mug nobles on the streets, spend your loot, and earn a reputation. Feel like a real thief in a cityscape of unparalleled responsiveness and interactivity.
  • Advanced Artificial Intelligence - AI guards that see and hear, track evidence and suspiciousness, search for intruders, fight, give chase, and perform lip synching, facial expressions, and hundreds of lines of real-time dialog.
  • Dynamic Lighting and Shadow System - Every character and object casts realistic, dynamic shadows that effect stealth gameplay.

Played the Xbox version of this non stop and loved it.

Friend bought it for me in a bundle and I was able to play this game again.

This deserves an HD remake.

I know this is an old game(s) and most of my steam friends probably played and finished years ago. But I want to say somethings about it.

+ Good story.
+ Good and rich lore.
+ Detailed and different missions.
+ Interesting characters.
+ Good game mechanichs.
+ Hiding, sneaking and stealing.

This game has it all and gives you something different than the other games out there. You don't need to kill anybody. You are a thief and you are stealing stuff. Nothing more. Hiding in the shadows, waiting a guard to pass so you can steal the object you need or you can make him go away with the weapons in your arsenal so you don't have to wait. Reading scrolls, letters or important books so that you can learn about the world and the characters. It's fun.

As I said, this isn't a any other game that gives you the best weapons and wants you to be kill everybody on the map. While in cut scenes main characters talks about "not killing" anybody but in game is a bloodbath.

If you are up to challange and if you really want to enjoy the game you sould play it on expert difficulty. It's force you to think and act differently, because you can't kill anybody on that difficulty.

DISCLAIMER: This is a full review, and NOT a first impressions review like all my other reviews, if you want a better full review, then please read better reviews then mine

MY BRAVERY COMES TO A CONCLUSION TO THE FINAL GAME IN A MASTERPIECE TRILOGY THAT ORIGINALLY MADE ME NOT WANT TO CONTINUE THE SERIES

One of the greatest and classical masterpieces of all time yet again returns with Thief III: Deadly Shadows, not developed by the now defunct company Looking Glass Studios, however by another company Ion Storm Interactive, it puts you in the Steampunk Victorian times, with creepy music, great atmosphere (believe me this game scares me to bits!), great story line and great voice acting! The only problems I encountered with the game is that its too confusing to get to somewhere, and also the first time I got it, it was poorly optimized, so I highly recommend if you are using an up-to-date PC, to download an unofficial patch which fixes some of the problems like cut scenes not working, bad resolutions and poor quality. But set aside all these problems, and you have a perfect stealth masterpiece.

Stick to the shadows at all costs!

RECOMMENDED :)

You are a Garrett, a master thief, the best from the best. The shadows are his friend and he steals from the wealthy and gives to himself. He rally Preferring to be left alone but there is always some prophecies. This time of an impending Dark Age whose dictating a different plan for the thief. In his efforts to prevent this approaching Dark Age, he has inadvertently roused an ancient hidden evil. Garrett finds himself standing alone between the City and the forces that would crush it.

I love this part of his story the most. Even if last Thief is harder, if you ask me. I have played Deadly Shadows plenty of times, always with Expert, the hardest difficulty and it was very easy for me. No matter what, his story, sense of humor and character, I really always liked Garrett and games with him.

Although very clunky, buggy and akward - Thief: Deadly Shadows is a very enjoyable game. Especially if patched with SneakyTweaker

Good enough to keep you entertained for an hour or two at a time. But not good enough to keep you playing for marathon sessions.

PROS:
Stalk the streets as a master thief
Mug nobles
Mug peasants
Mug guards
Mug everyone
Great storyline
Pretty much an open world game
Horror and Action mix (plus stealth! YAY!)
AI is advanced and smart
Hammerites

CONS:
Only ever equipped with a dagger and a blackjack (a club, not a gambling & alcoholic pony that loves shotguns)
Zombie elements kinda don't fit with the theme
The Hag

9/10
"There you are, you taffer!"
What?
"Have at thee!"
*Stabs guard three times*
"Uhh, gotta go! Places to be and such."
Get back here!
"Dont let the murderer get me!"
*Gets surrounded by two other guards as the third flees for his life*
♥♥♥♥.

Lockpicking (and probably ladder climbing as well) doesn't work due to a bug, even though I set up the right requirements for the game (60 fps and v-synch). This results in an unplayable game, cause you naturally you need those features to move on.

I cannot enter the lock picking mini game. My PC exceeds all requirements. Plz fix.

Other than that,
IT IS AWESOME.

This game is great. REAL stealth mechanics in my opinion. But you can't adjust the lighting. I hope you like not seeing anything. But I recommend this game for sure.
