To be fair, Dishonoured took more than a few cues from the Thief series, so it isn't surprising Thief 4 looks like it.

Don't be breaking my heart now Square Enix. Look at what made the old games so good- don't make stealth an option, it should be mandatory to proceed. If they can nail the atmosphere and tension of the old games I'll be all over this like p**s on the men's toilet floor during happy hour.

The last time this game was mentioned the developer said it was going to be more than just a stealth game, and that the series had to be opened up to a larger audience,....any alarm bells ringing here.

With the demise of dead space because of chasing the masses, i hope lessons are learned.

Nope! I didn't read that! I didn't read that bit of text from you there and then quote it so that it appears twice. Not listening.

Wow...I remember owning a Thief game way back in the year 2000.


I was happy playing this game minding my own business and as I reached down to pick up a pen I had knocked on the floor.....As I got up..The game had been wiped from my computer and the game had gone along with the game disk.


It left me thinking....Wow..This is realistic!!

I really wanted to play the past Thief games, but never had the chance. Would be nice to have an HD remake to go along with this for sake of the story. Judging by the '4' in the title this isn't a reboot of the series.

"brings more than just stealth"

Uh oh. Please don't have a greater emphasis on combat.




It's going to have a greater emphasis on combat isn't it.

'Thief: Deadly Shadows' was amazing, never really played the earlier ones. I played Dishonored through as if it were a stealth game, and felt so much more rewarding to do it; especially the mission where you have to nab the woman from the fancy dress party without killing her or being seen. That was pure luck of slowing down time, grabbing her, and running. My Quick Load button took quite a hit in that mission.

Damn that looks good. People were satisfied for the most part with human revolution right? I loved it except for the bosses of course. Never played thief but i do love stealth games.

A welcome comeback. Though Dishonored absolutely nailed the stealth//sneaking so spot on. Probably one of the best stealth games i've ever played when I think about it. Let's see if the old-timer can still teach the new kid any tricks...

Shame on you for even trying to say something like that, sure I get where you are coming from and I can't completely dissmiss you but let's be honest Dishonored took what it is from theif. It didn't however give us a good feel of sneaking. It did do it's part but not nearly as good as thief has. Thief is original Thief IS the stealth genre! appreciate it as such

(yes I am an extreme fanboy of all things Looking Glass Studios)

For anybody who wants to look the previous games up, I strongly recomend all of the previous games (Thief 1 Thief 2 Metall age and Thief 3 Deadly shadows) you can pick them all up on GoG.com :)

The story blurb continues: "Unfortunately, the City is broiling with social tension as it is ravaged by a plague and lorded over by a political tyrant known as the Baron. In order to survive his adventures, Garrett will have to pay attention to his environment and make use of the may possible paths through each of the game's levels."

Sounds like it to me. Does look good though and to be fair as dannyhulse wrote, dishonored did steal ( :D ) ideas from the thief series first.
