To be honest, it didn't remind me of the Thief series at all. The sneaking was extremely linear, which wasn't really actual sneaking at all. The only thing the player could do was walk down a very unusually shaped corridor.

The guards have the same disposition like the ones in Thief. But the fact that I can just stand still and nothing will happen, takes away any kind of suspense there might be. If you did that kind of stuff in Thief, a patrolling guard would spot you at some point and run after you, which would initiate a blood-heated chase through the streets. But because enemies don't move here, that is absent.

I've already written a review detailing all that's wrong, so I won't repeat it here.

4/10 - If you want to play a Thief game, play Thief, or Dishonored. But I can't recommend playing this if Thief is what you want.

This is free tho. Don't compare expensive games with free games from one or a few person/s.

The creator is the one claiming that it's inspired by Thief, and the only thing the two have in common is that the main character is a thief. If someone claims that their mods is inspired by something, then of course I'm going to compare the mod with the inspirational material.

To compare a game okay, but not for a review. Of course some random mod on moddb won't take on a game by a big company.

The idea behind this mod is interesting, the problem is that the execution just wasn't great. Much of the gameplay is stealth based, with you sneaking around past guards to steal various items. The problem is that the guards are just the suits of armor from Amnesia, with slight modifications. This means that they can't move, and never really act like real people, so I never felt like there was any challenge to the sneaking. Another problem is that there are invisible walls all over the place in…
