    Rate Thief 2 missions from best to worst

    I know that this has been done for Thief 1 missions, but I haven't seen it done for TMA. If I get enough people to post, I'll run some analysis on the data. Here is my list:

    1. LotP
    2. Trail of Blood
    3. Eavesdropping
    4. Blackmail
    5. Soulforge
    6. Kidnap
    7. Ambush
    8. Framed
    9. FCB&T
    10. Precious Cargo
    11. Running Interference
    12. Trace the Courier
    13. S&R
    14. Masks
    15. Casing the Joint

    Soulforge at fifth? Are you sure? I've never even been able to bring myself to complete it. I don't "do" grocery lists

    The mere existence of a flamethrower indicates that somewhere, at some point in time, someone said, "Gee, I wish I could set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough."

    Why is trail of blood rated so highly? I hated it.

    spoiler:
    Especially the second half, I saved, then found out an apebeast was after me. I had to run the rest of the way! Pretty sure I missed out on stuff...

    For me, it's the atmosphere. *shrug*

    And if you don't think to check that you aren't being chased before you save, blame yourself, not the bloody mission.

    It didn't occur to you to just kill the thing?

    I'm curious if anyone in this thread is actually going through and reading every list that people are posting. Sounds about as entertaining as reading actuarial tables.

    I tried killing them. Managed to kill one with arrows, knocked out a few, then, once I got past that small bridge over that pond place with the floating glowing thingies, 3 of them ganged up on me and killed me. After that I just ran the rest of the way.

    That's why you knock them out, THEN kill them.

    The first half of Trail of Blood, with the mechanist and the slaughtered Pagans and whatnot, was interesting. It all went downhill though when you jumped down the maw. I found myself hurrying in order to finish the level. And the tree houses with Apemen were the worst part of it all... The level was too linear, too.

    Indifferent:
    Running Interference
    Shipping and Recieving
    Trial of Blood

    Disliked: (n. p. o.)
    Sabotage at Soulforge
    Masks/Casing the Joint *

    * I would have like either one of these missions if there was only one, or they were separated. I love the wood panelling and expensive feel to the place, but only once.

    MY BLOODY FAULT? I'M BLOODY SORRY! BLOODY HELL!

    Anyway... I wasn't being chased, I saved
    spoiler:
    at the start of the 4 seasons, just before an ape came round a corner
    and while I could have got away, or tried to fight, I managed to complete the level just by legging it from there on in.

    My favourite levels... the mansions. I wasn't too bothered about casing and masks being right beside each other. Also the Bank, and Framed! wasn't an amazing level, but the forced conditions make it a good challenge.
    Bad levels... Soulforge I just got fed up. with. And Running Interference was pretty cheap, especially in the unpatched version. I didn't like Kidnap. Maybe I would have found it better, had I
    spoiler:
    got to that level in T1

    Oh, and I didn't try to kill it, after I took such a hiding from the one in the Maw. I'm rubbish at sword fighting and those things kill in about 4 continuous strikes...

    You should have dropped a mine while running away. (do you get any? I don't remember)

    LoP
    Ambush
    Courier
    SaR

    The others just kind of run together for me. As you can tell, I liked the big out door type missions. I didn't include Trail of Blood because even though it's outside, it just doesn't feel like it. I really liked T1 better than T2 anyway.
