Wikipedia says: "Thief: Deadly Shadows is a stealth video game where the player takes the role of Garrett, a master thief. It is set in a fantasy/steampunk world resembling a cross between the Late Middle Ages and the Victorian era, with more advanced technologies interspersed. It is the third entry in the Thief series of video games.
One of the game's major new features was the ability to explore the City. While previous games sent Garrett straight from mission to mission, Thief: Deadly Shadows allows him to walk the City streets between missions where he can steal from passersby, spy on the townspeople's daily lives, and search for sidequests in addition to major story missions. The game also introduced an ability to switch between first and third person views, and to flatten against walls.
It was released for Microsoft Windows and the Xbox in 2004, on May 25 in North America, and on June 11 in Europe. Development for both platforms started simultaneously. Like its predecessors, Thief: Deadly Shadows has received almost globally positive reviews, winning IGN's "Editor's Choice" award and "Game of the Month" award for May 2004. A follow-up to this game, Thief 4, is confirmed to be in the early development stages by Eidos Montreal Studio."
I borrowed this game from a friend with a green (Halo 2 edition) Xbox, before I got my own.
This game is fun and hard on many levels. It is a stealth game, based on being, well, stealthy.
Using different weapons and maneuvers to gain items to pawn, one finds themselves so out-
of-it they begin speaking third person and spell wrods worng.
One of the interesting things i found about this game is the A.I.
They believe they found you, then you flatten against the wall in a dark corner they fumble around like lost kittens
This is definitely a strategy game, but I would not recommend it for children.
However I do recommend that you buy it...and enjoy it, and if you do have it, don't sell it.
Well this will make it hard for other people to buy it. Meh, you figure it out.
