Thief: Deadly Shadows is a single-player stealth video game initially released in 2004. The game is set in a fantasy world where players assume the role of master thief Garrett. It is the third installment in the Thief of games. The aim of the game is to complete missions around the city without being caught. Players can acquire weapons and items to help complete the missions and objectives. Items can also be looted from passers-by. Additionally, items can be collected from locked chests that can be unlocked by finishing a mini-game. Users can switch between first-person and third-person perspective while playing the game.
Garrett must carefully sneak his way through the shadows to avoid the guards. To sneak past guards successfully, players must take note of the noises each action makes. This will help players find the best strategy to avoid being caught. Wanted posters of Garrett are also posted all around the city so some civilians may also recognize him. There is no specific way to finish a mission, as there are several ways to complete them.
Here are other features of the game:
• Wide city to explore
• Advanced artificial intelligence
• Dynamic lighting and shadow system
• Wide variety of tools and weapons to use
