    I am playing the old Thief: Dark Project game, which I recently plucked from a Bargain Bin for about $7.

    Not too bad! Lousy graphics, to be sure, but it seems to be one of those rare games where the gameplay makes up for the lack of eye candy.

    I am really enjoying the Stealth aspects of this game, trying to find ways to sneak past the guards without arousing suspicions and whatnot. Even though I am only a bit into the second mission, I find it really engrossing and enjoyable. Okay, it's a little cheesy in places, but come on, it's an old game!!

    If you have played the newest Thief game, let me know what you think about it!

    TIA,

    I played it on Xbox and it's VERY good. Hard even on the "easy" setting. :)

    I love that game. It really makes sneaking fun. It looks great, too. There is nothing better than tip toeing up to a whistling guard in the shadows and bopping him on the head with your blackjack, then hurling his limp form into a sewer somewhere.

    You guys make it sound awesome.

    Is there a downside to it? I mean, is there some aspect of the gameplay that really bugs you?

    Or is it "all good"? ;b

    TIA!

    I've played through over half the game and I didn't find any "bad" parts. I'll buy it soon. Go to Blockbuster and rent it if you have an Xbox.

    I have played (and finshed some) of the entire Thief series. I really like them all.
