The fact that there's not much new in Thief II is a minor complaint. At first, Thief II may seem too much like Thief, but on closer inspection it's a better game. It may lack its predecessor's excellent story, and the graphics engine may be slightly dated, but no such concerns will seem relevant when you're sneaking around in Thief II's excellent environments.
This program is intriguing, delightful, spooky and thoroughly enjoyable. Though Garrett is, in fact, a thief, by playing the part, you will begin to think of him as very honorable, and perhaps one of the few good guys in the program. Thief II allows you to embrace the darkness, and call the shadows your friends. This is a great title. Solid artificial intelligence, great graphics and gameplay make this a hit.
For those of you looking for a complex, unique effort, Thief II continues to shine. The game puts in so much world detail that you can't help but get immersed in Garrett's plight and his adventures. Whether you're creeping up on a guard, or hiding in a dark alleyway listening to an important conversation, it's hard to separate yourself from the tension and tell yourself that you're still just playing a game. Like Half-Life, Thief II is an adventure that leaves a resonating impression, and a game that you'll want to return to, often.
