The Witcher 3 looks great. However, Thief looks terrible, especially after Dishonored set the bar so high. This looks like a B-project from a second rate studio, not the next major project from the developer of Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

What specifically looks so terrible about Thief? Also, the DX:HR team isn't working on it. They're working on the next DX game. Thief is being done by another team at the studio.

Here's some extended gameplay footage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1iX-X5yKzs

Nothing I've seen or read sounds particularly offensive to me. The game seems faithful to the series. It doesn't have superpowers like Dishonored but it's not supposed to be Dishonored. It's supposed to be Thief.

BTW: Before someone watches the footage I linked and freaks out about the instant takedown at 2:30, keep in mind that those takedowns consume Focus, a finite resource which is depleted through various actions and can only be replenished by using a rare pickup. Also, Focus is completely optional and can even be disabled via difficulty mods. There are also difficulty mods that disallow takedowns and Focus entirely, as well as triggering a fail state if you are detected or take any damage. So if you lack self-restraint, you can use these difficulty mods to force you to play stealthily.
