“This city will not die with the old and the poor holding it back. The time has
come for a new future” -Baron Northcrest
“No more will our homes be taken and our families starved. This City belongs to
the people. We must seize it back.” -Orion
Garrett the Master Thief is entangled in the growing layers of conflict between
Baron Northcrest and the oppressed masses led by Orion, the voice of the people.
In a City on the brink of revolution, Garrett’s skills are all he can trust as
he walks the fine line between politics and the people.

to limit console player frustration with a checkpoint save system by addressing the limited functionality/precision of a gamepad, or to artificially cover for some pretty shitty/lazy level design.
Precisely my thoughts on it. They know the controls and the player ability and the game design are limited and so they remove the possibility. Nevermind that it's part of the core gameplay to actually have to BE Garrett and prove you've got what it takes. Nevermind that skill is actually one of the foundations of playing and mastering a game. No, in the future, you won't fire unless there's something to shoot, won't move unless there's somewhere to go, and won't jump unless there's something to jump to. The future is here! It should pair up nicely with the rope arrows that can only be fired at set locations instead of at any wood.
You guys rebooting Thief don't get it. It's the gameplay, stupid.
