THE DARK MOD was once a total conversion of Doom 3, and is now a STANDALONE GAME with the release of TDM 2.0! A dark and moody stealth game, inspired by the Thief series by Looking Glass Studios.
-recreates the Thief 1&2 feeling but also boasts some more modern graphics and mechanics
-it doesn't require Doom3 to be installed
-over 50 missions available at the creators site means this mod will keep you busy for a long time
-smart AI guards that react to sounds, dead/unconscious bodies, missing items and know how to relight candles/torches
-some of the missions are very skillfully made while others...not so much
-melee combat is broken and best avoided entirely
-initial loading of a level takes a long time
P.S. Don't forget to download and install all of the mods updates as without them the saves won't work.
I would usually never give a standalone mod or a fan remake or whatever such a high rating, but this is truly a rare exception to that. I have never seen an effort as doggedly and lovingly pursued as this huge freeware homage to the Thief series. For recreating the atmosphere and gameplay of all three games in such a faithful way, in a newer but not too demanding engine, and creating an easy-to-use SDK for the fans who'd want to contribute to the game's healthy growth, I can choose no other option than to give it full marks. As much as it is a fan game, this is what the official Thief sequel/reboot should have been much closer to in overall spirit.
