...is on sale at Gametap. I'm looking forward to this one, even though I'm betting it can never be as good as Thief 2. More Thief!!!!

I'm still not sure on this one. Max Payne 3 ended up being a big disappointment for me as it lacked the atmosphere of the originals.
Loved I, I Gold, II, IIx and even DS.

I know. The first two Thief games were so incredibly great. DS was okay, not up to the originals even though the graphics were better. But who knows? Maybe this will be more like 1 and 2.

I'm hoping that it will be great but have my doubts. I didn't care for DS nearly as much as the first two games and Thief Gold. I want the old Garret back but I hear he has been replaced.

That he has. You can see it in this trailer Thief reboot I would have loved to see Viktoria make a return from the ashes myself. Just like you I have my doubts on the reboot, mostly because I enjoyed the plots in the first two games.

While in the reboot, nothing is known of the plot/setting and the only thing that basically has been shown is how much the graphics have been improved and a stealing mission

Yes, it's all true about Garrett's voice.

But you know, though DS wasn't as good as the originals, it was still a darned good game. It just suffers in comparison. Thief 2 was an impossible act to follow, just like Deus Ex.

And that is the whole problem summed up in 1 short sentence. Will probably buy it and will probably love it but the classic games are impossible acts to follow.

I'm a big Thief fan as you might guess from my forum name smile

DS was not too bad considering it was meant for PC and Console and had to make some sacrifices for the different platforms in gameplay, the first two were PC only games but DS did have one of the scariest levels of any RPG game ever during the Cradle level, just awesome played in the dark alone with headphones on.

No beating Thief Gold and Thief 2 game-play though, especially with the graphical mods they have had since release and also the wonderful T2X.

Are you Taffers aware you can download for free and legally The Dark Mod V 2.0 now? No need to install Doom 3 first any-more (it uses its game engine) its pretty much one click and go, it really does play like Thief now, one of the best fan mods in any game ever IMHO, you can download from its interface dozens of good fan missions too, would recommend doing the default one and training one first to get used to the controls and interface, then (small) download through game "A Night to Remember" ... Its very good indeed. Will certainly keep me going until Thief 4 arrives next year with the dozens upon dozens of fan missions to try yet.

The Dark Mod

As for T4, I really don't know what to think? Its been delayed a lot, no traditional Garret? graphics look very good but graphics are not everything, looks like stealth is still in though, for sure better than nothing and hopefully its a winner.
