Post Thief 3 Deadly Shadows thread

The game is scheduled to hit today (5/25/04)
Here are reviews so far which have all given Thief3 pretty good scores:

IGN Review (8.6/10)
1UP Review (8.5/10)
Gamespot Review (8.3/10)
Gamespy (4/5)

I have some very fond memories of playing the original Thief on my 333MHz/Voodoo2 powered PC. Can't wait to see the 3rd installment in action

3rd perspective hmmm not a fan of that genre unless it's similar to Splinter cell...ie tactics and stealth

Ok seen some SS. is it half and half? ie half front perspective and half 3rd persp. ?

Basically you can choose either perspective. 3rd person, would be similar to Splinter Cell, and the first person mode would be like the classic Thief. I think I'm gonna play in 1st person, because supposly both are done well.

It's hardly cheating to use a 3rd person camera, in Thief 2 you had that floating camera-orb that you could basically take all around the level and see what's around every corner and where every guard is, but noone said that was cheating. The 3rd person view just lets you see what's around nearby corners without having to peak your head out (which the guards never seemed to notice in the old Thief's, at least not that I can remember), and from the sound of it the game is best played mostly in the first-person view anyway. I do like the fact that your character actually has a full body even in first-person view, it's so much more realistic seeing your own shadow and movements in the world rather than just having the "floating hands" effect that's in most first-person games.

3rd person cheating? Wouldn't say so. It's just that when we're talking about a sequel, we're all used to certain features introduced in the first game. I mean, imagine if SC3 was to be played in 1st person only. I think lots of people would be pretty pissed with that change. The optional 3rd person view in Thief III (which is default for the Xbox version, i think we all know why), is abnormal for a Thief game. Plain and simple. Which is why it's going out of the window for me

If you could have looked around corners without the need to "peak" or lean how do you think it would have changed the first and second game.it takes
alot of the challenge out of it as well.browse the ionstorm t3 forums,many
there can explain this far better then I.I really do believe that some games
do not improve with this feature,it only hinders them.
