Thief: The Dark Project focuses on stealth and strategy, rather than the familiar first-person run-and-gun approach. Instead of calling for straight-up, in-your-face fighting, this game rewards subterfuge. Players take the role of Garrett, a cynical but skilled thief. The character began mastering the art in his youth, by picking pockets, and progressed to prowling and lock-picking. This adventure chronicles the life of crime chosen by Garrett, through a series of more than a dozen missions.
As he moves through each area, Garrett must time his advances and stick to the shadows whenever possible. He'll stalk enemies with an assortment of weapons and use a variety of special-purpose arrows including "water," "fire," "moss," and "rope." Thief: The Dark Project features a game engine element dubbed "Act/React Technology," which is designed to create realistic, interactive environments. Wood burns when it's exposed to fire, for example, and water freezes in cold temperatures. Often, Garrett can make creative use of such realistic reactions to solve a problem or get himself out of a jam. ~ Chris Couper, All Game Guide
