If you genuinely like sneaking around and stealing stuff and don't think that manual jumping is the defining factor of stealth games, Thief is pretty solid. The AI has some issues but it works well enough in general (on the highest difficulty). Combat sucks but that's a given since it's a Thief game. Opening windows is annoying at first but becomes less of an issue as the game progresses. Story isn't great but it's passable by videogame standards. Levels aren't as big or open-ended as in the previous games, but they're still pretty large and open-ended. Some sections are very linear and scripted but they're the minority and comprise maybe 5% of the game.

Really, the bile thrown at the game is completely overblown. I consider myself a fan of the genre and I'd definitely pick up Thief for $15.

Thief, worth it at $15, or completely hopeless?

Wait for $5 or just skip it. Yes, it's that bad.

No, game is frustrating beyond belief with some of the asinine design decisions.

Seriously, who's fucking idea was it to have CONTEXT SENSITIVE JUMPING IN A FUCKING FIRST PERSON STEALTH GAME!? Garrett feels like an utter gimp, as his movement is restricted when the game dictates when and where you can take your feet off the ground.

Get Dishonored GOTY edition since it seems to be on sale every other weekend, or just get the old thiefs. Thief 4 is terrible. All they had to do was add in basic jumping elements to make traversing the already cramped environments easier but no, this one clueless design flaw eliminates what could have been an alright stealth game.
