Mod Review on Sep 9th, 2011
For a thief fan like me, The Dark Mod is all and more that I could ask for.
Since Thief 2: The Metal Age, modders and mappers have been stuck with what today is out of date tech to create fan missions and getting their sneaking fix.
The Dark Mod breathes new life into the Thief modding community and brings it into the next gen video game realm through Doom 3's id Tech 4 engine.
The people behind the Dark Mod have done new scrips, new AI, new textures, new models, new music, new gameplay elements, voice acting(Benny!).. So much new content coming together to form a tool set which modders can use to create their fan missions and share it with other Thief and stealth fans.
And all of it feels just like a Thief game should feel, down to the sound of your feet slowly creeping across the cobbles... The tension as you carefully peek around the corners of a seemingly empty corridor.. And the frantic panic as you flail your sword at your opponent, while at the same time dodging the powerful blows of the warhammer crashing down upon you.
As far as mods go, this is the penultimate step of a total conversion, before it could almost be called a totally new Thief game in its own right.
But who needs a new Thief game, when there are so many new stories waiting to be told, missions to be created and experienced in The Dark Mod.
