    Alright, we'll let Jason off the hook because he tends to score high. But a 90 for TDS?

    So, how far can you swoop?

    I guarantee you there are games you would rate 8-10 that I would give a 1 or a 2 to, I just don't spend every waking hour posting about those games here like some folks because that seems like a miserable way to live.

    And why not a 90 for TDS? I've probably replayed the game 4-5 times. There are *good* games, solid 5-6 rated games (which for me is a decent score, rating 0-10), that I have no desire to ever touch again, like Darksiders or Half-Life 2. I've replayed the new Thief, and the vast majority of games I own/have played I wouldn't even consider good enough to warrant a full playthrough (recent examples including Return To Castle Wolfenstein).

    Here are some examples of how I rate different types of games:

    5 - perma-install - Deus Ex, System Shock 2, Thief, Mass Effect, Mirror's Edge, Richard Burns Rally, The Elder Scrolls 3-5, Fallout, Borderlands
    4 - great, not sure if I ever want to play again - Beyond Good & Evil, Icewind Dale, The Saboteur, Penumbra, Portal, XIII
    3 - good, but no desire to revisit - Assassin's Creed, Darksiders, Alan Wake, The Darkness II, Dead Island, Max Payne 3, Half-Life 2
    2 - meh - Betrayer, DiRT 2, Return To Castle Wolfenstein, Super Meat Boy, Trine, Gothic II
    1 - who the hell greenlit this garbage - Fable III, Braid, Dark Void, Garshasp, Lost Planet, Quake 4

    I did actually try and practice swooping in my kitchen, and for the life of me I can't work out what (IRL) that movement is supposed to be. Not without roller skates anyway.

    I tried turning invisible in a doorway, couldn't figure that out either.

    I dunno that I hate it, I just didn't enjoy it much. Hate would probably be reserved for something like AVP2 Primal Hunt or Dark Sector.

    Calling these games a "2 / meh" is just ridiculous. You should visit a doctor.

    A 2/5 on my scale would probably be a 60-70 on a typical review scale. I played enough of those games to realize I don't like them very much.

    Your rating scale appears to be based on comparative quality rather than assigning semi-arbitrary numerical values to a game. So a game that is a 5 is better than a game that is a 4, but not necessarily a bad game, there are just a lot of games better than it.

    Is this a semi-accurate statement?

    On its lowest settings this game is still full of eyecandy.
    Sadly, because of the switch now to DLC, there will be no editor
    available for T4, yet anyway.

    Im only on chapter 2 of this game. So far its been enjoyable although a little sluggish
    on my system. My two kids sit beside me while I try to ghost my way through the game.
    They enjoy it too.

    I do a lot of bush walking and swooping is a necessary skill.
    How does swooping help in bush walking?

    There are many times where the only way forward is to swoop under a fallen log
    or to swoop through a small gap in the bush where animals have created
    (Wombats mostly) highways leading to the best feeding areas, water etc, or
    to swoop quickly across creeks/streams in the hopes that this action will keep
    your shoes and your feet dry, as usual my hopes are dashed every time on this one
    so swooping across creeks is a no no.

    FWIW, the community has rated the game as 5.2/10 (93 votes).

    I gave it a 9, because I actually enjoyed the game. I didn't go in there with a chip on my shoulder; "This isn't anything like TDP, it's horrible!" or "No zombies? No fun."

    My biggest complaint is that the missions tended to not have much free-roaming involved. In T1 and 2, you could run across the entire map. With this one we've got kinda the same linear design with chokepoints that a lot of modern games have.

    But you know what? I still had lots of fun.

    I'm sorry for sharing something so elementary, but it started to make me laugh more than any sane person should.

    Consequently, I found Thief 2014 to be pretty elementary. Honestly, the amount of hand-holding is absurd.

    I never played the game, but at least I'm learning about numbers.

    I believe you just summarized my entire experience with this game.

    I finished it once, and I will never touch it again. Playing it makes me sad.
