After a decade-long hiatus, Eidos Montreal brought their first-person stealth action franchise, Thief, back to the frontiers of the gaming world. Quite a statement needed to be made, as other series like Dishonored had come in a set the bar much higher than it had been upon Thief‘s leave of absence. With the success of Deux Ex: Human Revolution, Eidos Montreal seemed pretty confident that they could recapture their place as the leading first-person stealth action title.
But even with Thief being the first big next-gen release of the year, many people missed out on it due to various mediocre reviews, meaning many may not be up to date with the franchises main man Garrett and his latest undertakings. If you are on of those people, then it might suit you well to tune in to Joshua Quail’s latest edition of What You Missed By Not Playing. In the video, Quail gives you a speedy rundown of all the worthy plot developments from the game, though it’s arguable that not many of those existed to begin with.
Thanks for the refresher Josh! If you still are wondering how this game measures up, you can check out my full review of Thief right here.
