After all the shit RPS gave this game in previews, it's kind of funny seeing them like it the most.

6's aren't so bad - I was afraid that it was going to be much worse. I'll check it out after the March games.

I am actually surprised the gaming press hasn't eatin' a games like this up. Doesn't it respond to their meta-narrative likes? Washed out, uninspired, cinematic, helpful cues, illusory choice...

Or is it because it lacks chest high wall multiplayer ADS?

Actually, the game sounds pretty damn fun from reviews. The only cons are load times (ssd rulz) and bad story. I can live with that.

Wow, that RPS review is... unexpected to say the least.
That's cool, I always hoped the game would end up being somewhat interesting and fun to play, if not worthy of the Thief name.

The two that I expected to rip it the most - RPS and Edge - both gave it favorable reviews. Not great, but favorable. Definitely did not expect that.

You should read the stories that have leaked out about the development of this game. Development Hell doesn't even come close to describing it. I'm utterly shocked it ever shipped in the first place, let alone is getting 6s and 7s.

Played on PC, Master Custom difficulty, Focus ability locked off. Note: You can play through the entire game comfortably without using focus. It's not a busted, gameplay integral ability.

EDIT: I see I'm in the OP already. All according to plan.

I can't even tell anymore, all these 6-10 scores blur together in my eyes.

The stream seemed to tell me enough.

I frankly didn't expected some of the first reviews to be this bad.

You can almost hear the sound of the nostalgia-is-to-blame! defense force gathering.

I guess I should I been alarmed that they stapled the name of a franchise that looked only vaguely like it's predecessors. Well there goes any hope of a real revival of the series.

Deus Ex HR also had massive load times. This studio and their load times eh?

Pretty average set of scores, still looking forward to playing it mind.

Oh well

I expected this. I could see this coming a mile away. Game just never looked that good. Glad I am waiting, but I will pick it up for $30. Sucks because I liked this series on PC.
