Thief as a series is the stealth game genre. When it first came out, it was praised for its use of lighting and sound oriented stealth gameplay, sharp enemy AI, seamless and complicated levels full of collectable treasure, and an emphasis on exploration and grabbing everything that wasn't nailed to the floor. Before Metal Gear Solid or Hitman, Thief was the stolen crown jewel. There hasn't been a ... more.
