Everything went better than expected

The new Thief game sucked so bad that I just
played Dishonored again without killing anyone
and sneaking. It was pretty fun.
Dishonored was a better Thief game than Thief.

It's a reboot. So the main character has no back story other than "world's greatest thief.". He's uninteresting, brooding, and not very likable.

You have superpowers now, which reminded of Dishonored.

You don't have a sword so you beat people with your bow.

Some things are good, but instead of being slow and methodical like Thief Deadly Shadows or Hitman: Blood Money, it's chaotic.

The latest Thief game didn't have anyone from Looking Glass working on it so it lacked that originality that made the original trilogy so memorable. A lot of people from LGS moved over to Arkane Studios and made Dishonored though, so at least there's hope for that series.

Let me be honest, dishonored sucked, it felt like bioshock with stealth elements, if anything get yourself the old thief games, honestly.
Also you are kinda forced to take the stealthy approach if you want to have the good ending and not have to worry about to many guards walking around.

And I still think the new thief game could have been worse, atleast it's a stealth game like expected with the name thief, so I'm atleast not disspointed in that aspect.

Now hate on me people of FJ, but that's my point of view.

personally dishonored is one of my favorite games of all time. The stealth was tense enough to capture the feeling of a stealth game but the blink feature as well as the other abilities you got later on made it so that the game never got tedious. It never lost it's pacing during a level (until you had to go back to the hub world for no ******* reason other than to by gear. Honestly one of the lower parts of the game).
and, hearing what you have to say about theif, which kind of sparked the idea of stealth games as a whole and have been known to hold up really well, maybe you just don't like stealth games? i mean, it's okay, it is a niche genre.

Oblivion Thieves Guild quest line was like 10x better than Thief and Dishonored, and about as long.
User avatar #3 - sinery (08/19/2014) [-]
Seems reasonable.
Dishonored kicked ass.

Yeah, Dishonored is a better Thief game than Thief, but Dishonored is still not a very good stealth game in general.

For one, it's far too easy. There is only so much fun to be had in sneaking around without being seen or killing a single person when it is extremely easy to accomplish this.

Also, there are so many tools for killing, making it very easy and quick to just rampage your way through a level. The game tries to discourage it with story changes, but a game shouldn't hand you a bunch of killing tools and then expect you to not use them. There should be more stealth-encouraging tools than rampage-encouraging tools in a stealth game.

At least the setting and lore of dishonored is pretty good, and you are actually free to decide how you go about things.

I bootlegged it and felt like I had been ripped off. I can't imagine paying for it.
User avatar #22 - friendlyanon (08/19/2014) [-]
Played both. I'm a fan of the original Thief saga.

Dishonored was bland, boring, even rising the difficulty to the max it didn't click for me. All the mumbo-jumbo with the emo edgy dark powers didn't help neither, i despise when they use magic instead of skill and gadgets. I liked the new Thief more in that sense.
New Thief, on the other hand, was a ******* maze of load screens, Garret's character was simply butchered and it was somewhat kind of dull too.


They are both very similar, very "old Thief-like", but they are watered and dumbed down. I remember moments in the original Thief games that were like ******* nightmares, you had to squueze your brain like a ************ to come up with solutions. In these 2 games you just move arround using your x-ray vision or your "you can't see me 'cause i'm leaning" techniche without a care in the world.

I'm dissapointed, but not surprised. Things are always like this now in this industry.

I think I've never been so disappointed with a new game EVER. I've played the thing for hours, trying to find something decent about it – but it's really only one of those reboots for the brainless masses who don't have any aspirations.

— NO emergent gameplay! You can only choose between 3 or 4 paths the developers but into the game.
— light/darkness system doesn't work (impossible to really recognize which places are dark and which are well-lit), light gem has only 3 static increments
— sound system (which is essential to a Thief game) was completely ****** up
— jumping only at contextual places. If there's a crate you can jump on, you sometimes can't jump onto the next just because the developers don't want you to.
— only use rope arrow at tiny spots the developers put into the game. Which sucks because most of the upper regions of The City are made of wood.
— Most of the areas are mere eyecandy and not accessible – even though some would make *great* routes, especially for a thief!
— The whole interface of the game looks like it's from an iPod or maybe out of the AssCreed games. You also read notes you pick up in this immersion-breaking menu – which almost feels as if you were reading an email in Deus Ex.
— Garrett is an arrogant bragger. He prides himself of being THE master thief. That's not Garrett. The real Garrett stole because that's all he knew how to do, he only wanted to be left alone by others. In this new "Thief" he puts up a whole collection of stuff in his hideout. (If anyone were to go there, he'd be ******* screwed.)
— 3rd person climbing sequences (right out of AssCreed or the Prince of Persia Sands of Time trilogy) which are useless as there's only one way to go anyway. And crappy escape sequences.

Now Dishonored wasn't perfect, but I really liked the vivid way Dunwall was depicted. Also, the story was written by three ex-Looking Glass members: Harvey Smith, Austin Grossman and Terri Brosius!

There's just one thing I don't understand; why does Garret need to steal all of this money? It obviously isn't for self gain, seeing as how he spends it all on thieving gadgets instead of fancy clothes, nice housing, or other comforts. He doesn't do it out of valor either, seeing as how he doesn't give it to the poor.

I don't know, maybe he just enjoys it?

By the way, if you want to play a good thief game, play Thief 2: The Metal Age. It may be old, but it's aged like fine wine.

Does it hold a candle to the original trilogy? No. Does that mean it's horrible? No. It's a well made game that had the misfortune to stand in the dark shadows of some great forbears.

i liked theif more than dishonored because it was simplistic
#129 to #125 - matexius (08/19/2014) [-]
Thief... simplistic...maybe...
I'm talking the most-recent Thief in this...
Repetative, dull/boring, awful and seen-before storyline, no character development or worth, etc.
And that ******* log...

Thief 3 is hands down the best Thief game in my opinion

**** yeah, dishonored.
