À propos du jeu

Vous êtes Garrett, le roi des voleurs. Jamais aperçu, jamais attrapé, Garrett est le meilleur qu'il soit. Capable de s'infiltrer au nez et à la barbe des gardes, de forcer n'importe quelle serrure et de pénétrer dans les endroits les mieux gardés, Garrett dépouille les riches pour donner... à lui-même, vivant de son larcin dans la cité obscure et interdite. Là, crime et corruption sont le lot commun : les nobles pillent les pauvres et se pillent entre eux. La magie et machines se côtoient. Garrett n'aspire qu'à vivre tranquillement de son butin mais les choses se passent rarement comme prévu.
  • Jeu d'infiltration de pointe : dissimulez-vous dans la pénombre sans vous faire remarquer des gardes ou embusquez-vous dans l'ombre pour mieux les supprimer.
  • A votre disposition une liste impressionnante d'outils incluant des pince-monseigneur, flèches, gants, flacons de substances variables, bombes, dagues...
  • Une ville complète à explorer : pénétrer dans les bâtiments à l'insu de leurs propriétaires, assommer les nobles en pleine rue, dépenser votre butin et faite vous une réputation... Comportez-vous en roi des voleurs dans un décors d'une richesse et d'une interactivité sans précédent.
  • Intelligence artificielle avancée : les gardes entendent, voient, suivent des pistes, sont suspicieux, recherchent les intrus, combattent, poursuivent et parlent : les dialogues sont synchronisés avec l'expression dynamique du visage.
  • Éclairage dynamique et système d'ombre : chaque personnage et objet interviennent sur la gestion des ombres et sur la furtivité.

So i got this game yesterday and waited to today to play it and well, I spent the entire day playing, The game is just so damn addictive, Im a huge fan of stealth games and i remember playing this one when i was only about 6 or 7 years old when it came out.

PROS

The atmosphere and darkness: The atmosphere is great if you have the brightness down to 2 or 4, It looks so amazing on 2 but its hardly playable on 2 because you can barely see anything!

Quality and Detail: For a game that was developed in 2003 this game sounds and looks pretty great, The AI might not be top quality but it makes up for it in stunning good looks

Arsenal: Garetts arsenal is very useful and cool, Water arrows for putting out torches and moss arrows that you shoot at metal floors to muffle the sound, Its all very very cool

Locations: The locations you are in are very big and offer a long playtime if you want to get all the loot, Unless you go charging in with your dagger, But who wouldent want to lurk in the shadows and knock out guards or stab them in the back?

CONS

No autosave: Its because of this ive spent alot of time on it already, I was on the third mission and then got stuck so i had to exit the game and i never saved so it took me awhile to get back to where i was

Dumb AI: Now this wont screw up your experiance in the lightest and as i said before this game came out in 2004, But the AI are not very bright, Some will run into doors or if you close a door in they're face while they are chasing you they will just give up the hunt, So they dont pose much of a challenge as they should, They are rather strong however so look out

And thats my review on Thief: The Deadly Shadows, Overall i would give this game a nice 9/10 because it really captures the essence of stealth and darkness.

This is a quality 2004 stealth game. You are Garrett and you have to find out what the Prophecies of the Keepers are. Because you are a Master Thief, the keepers use your abilities to steal certain items which involves the prophecy.

The game is a first/third person stealth game where you can roam around the city. Steal from houses, pickpocket random people on the street and do whatever you can to get money, between missions. It all feels quite alive in all the small areas of the city and it's always fun to find new routes or hiding places from the guards as you bag all them precious stuff.
The people talk to each other, saying Good evening or bugger off as they walk by. Making it feel like a should be.
Missions are done in special areas where you can't get in when you are just roaming though.

However, I said hiding. Though in this game you can hide from a guard who spotted you in a shadow that is about 1 meter away. The AI isn't the smartest around. Once a guard killed a, what I think was a bandit, and when he walked passed it 15 seconds later, he wondered how there could be a corpse on the ground and directly want to scan the place for enemies.
Which in most cases, is the player because well...nothing is as suspiscious as wearing a black hood.
But even in missions, I once had an AI regularly walking and suddenly fall to her death, alerting everyone in the area.

I think that has to be the worst and maybe the only real problem of this game as the other thing that springs into my mind, is how awfully bad the physics system is. Bad but a good kind of bad. Everytime you will be amazed at how bodies go there way in this game.

But other than that, this game is a wonderful game. The story is interesting, the difficulty gradually gets higher as the game goes and the level design is just wonderful. Especially props to 1 certain level which could've been a stand alone horror game. *Shivers*

All in all, I recommend this game for it's story, gameplay and level design. The game looks a little old and it's best to download a FOVPatch from the internet, but the value of this game is certainly worth it.

Good stealth games are hard to come by, at least the hardcore ones, but this one does not disappoint.

The plot is really well presented, you don't know much of it at the start, but as you play it the more engaged in it you get. It starts with a faction asking you for help (not willingly) to retrieve a certain artifact from a church of the religious Hammerites. At first Garrett, the main character, not wanting to get involved in any political game refuses, but then thinks of all the good stuff he could "borrow" while he's there... What starts simple, gets a little more complicated later on. Not spoiling anything, let's just say that it is somewhat unexpected (but in a good way!) and surpsisingly scary sometimes (yes "The Cradle", I'm talking to you).

The game encourages you to really sneak around and not be detected, since a confrontation doesn't end well for the player in most cases. But don't think that this is an unforgiving game, as the game provides the player with a good variety of tools to make all the sneaking around possible. For instance, there is the Blackjack that can be used to knock enemies out silently, there's the Water Arrow which is used to extinguish fire based light sources from a distance creating areas of darkness, the Moss Arrow that is used to create a grassy spot where it isn't noisy to walk on, or the option to simply grab something fom the environment and throw them to lure enemies away. And if you screw things up, there are also the "escape" tools as well, like the Flashbang, that blinds the enemy giving you time to hide again, the Oil Flasks in which the enemies can be slowed down in case of pursuit by sliping on them (or to be set on fire if shot with a Fire Arrow, creating a true firewall), and so on. And if you really need to fight, you have your bow (which can kill the enemy instantly, but only if he/she is not aware of your presence) and dagger (you can also backstab unaware enemies with it), which is possible to guess, isn't very effective in a direct assault on armored sword wielding angry guards (but possible to beat with the help of some Health Potions)

With all of the tools in the game, it is even possible to beat the game without a single confrontation, lethal or non-lethal. These items give you a nice balance in the game, making every mission possible to be approached a different number of ways.

The game can be played in a first person perspective, which is more immersive but a little more problematic, or in a thid person perspective, that makes the game easier since you can take a peek at corners without moving for instance.
As I stated before, the first person perspective can be a little frustrating, a good example of this is when you lean: the purpose of this is to be able to look from the safety of the shadows without compromising yourself too much, in previous installments of the series, this manouver was one of the most important of those games, it was easy and quick to use, in this game however instead of the character just leaning his head out of cover like it was implied by the movement of the camera in the other games (there was no third person perspective in those), here the character literally places himself to the side really slowly, which compromises you instead of giving you an edge on the enemies.
In fact, it can be dangerous to use sometimes, as it can make you fall from a ledge if you're trying to lean near one for instance. So this kinda forces you to use the third person perspective a lot more than you could wish for.

But this isn't something that can take you away from the game, it's a minor inconvenience that doesn't break the game. You can face a wall and then put your back on it if you think an enemy is going to walk by TOO close to you (can be a life saver) and the movement modes give you more strategy options: you can run, walk crouch, and sneak, each one presents a different speed and noise, so choosing carefully how to approach a place or enemy is always a good plan.

The AI can be unforgiving, or just plain stupid. Sometimes it will chase you relentlessly for a long time, and sometimes it will give up at the first corner. At least it is good to be surprised sometimes and have to adapt to a certain situation. It is just weird (but necessary in a certain way in this genre) that the enemies see you and may even engage in combat, but later forget that you were there when you hide ("It was probably just my imagination").

The game takes place in The City (that's the name presented by the game), and it is kind of a free opened world. "Kind of" because of the engine limits, since the game can't handle large areas, there are a lot of transition places which requires the game to stop and load content, breaking the pace of the game, and making it really annoying when you are just trying to explore. The missions take place in separate places of the city, and can only be accessed once, so you can't visit the mission areas prior to reaching them in the story.

Graphically, the game looks really good for its time, great particle effects lighting effects and shadow projections (which you can use to see the enemy coming or the opposite). There are a few problems with colision detection and you can get stuck sometimes requiring you to reload the game in a previous save slot, but thankfully, that's really rare (unless you want to climb everywhere).

The sound in this game is great, the musics, the ambient and the voice acting are terrific (and comical sometimes as intended). People talk about you in the streets, or think out loud that they must be seeing ghosts and so on, and that's all very convincing.

The game is pretty long, without taking consideration the times you will reload and try again going through a certain spot or the load times themselves, so it provides a good ammount of time of entertainment.

In the end, even lacking a few things that made its antecessors great (like the Rope Arrow), Thief Deadly Shadows still greatly succeeds in delivering a solid stealth gameplay and at the same time gives the player liberty to approach the tasks at hand many ways differently (but that doesn't mean without a little punishment) giving the game a good replay value. And with its lenghty campaign, it will certainly have you immersed in its world of intrigues and surprises for a good (really good by the way) time.

This game is currently the only Thief game I've played, but I've heard people say that this game isn't any good compared to the others... may or may not be true but I had a very, very good time playing this game. The buggy mess that T:DS may be (I lost saves two times, but I still wanted to replay from the beginning) is actually one of the best games I've ever played! Excellent stealth gameplay combined with artsy good looking graphics (yes, outdated but who cares?) and a very enjoyable story makes this game absoloutely worth it considering the cheap price! 9/10
