      Is this going to be a FPS RPG like bioware or more RPGish like Fallout 3?

      Most reviews state you can play gun ho style or stealth.

      I hear that gunz-a-blazin' is super hard because you die rather easily.
      All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.

      Your chaos level must be off the chart.

      I'm not normally a gamer, and I haven't purchased a game in years. Still, I did buy Thief when it was first released and I really liked it, so this seemed like a natural for me. I bought it on opening day.

      Wow. Just wow. This game is beautiful. It is so open-ended, offering a dizzying array of choices as far as what to do and how to accomplish it. A co-worker bought it at the same time, and every day he and I compare experiences and share our sheer joy. I cannot believe how much I am enjoying this game.

      Is this a good sneaker-type game? I'm debating whether or not I should buy.

      EDIT: After some research this game looks good. Downloading now. Use the coupon code below at http://www.greenmangaming.com/ to get $11.99 off. That's $48. Code expires Oct 19. Steam account required.

      Not only yes, but hell yes. The cool thing is, you can decide exactly how much you sneak. You can attempt to go through the entire game without killing a single person--the game lets you come behind someone and choke then into unconsciousness, or you can use sleep darts in your crossbow, or you can find creative ways for NPCs to turn on each other, etc. If that isn't your thing, you can use your sword and perform some pretty fancy evisceration. It's entirely up to you.

      I think you made the right choice. Even at the $60 I paid for it, this game is a great deal.

      I just finished the training missions (escape). No deaths. Total stealth. I'm going to enjoy this.

      I really hate those overseer's with the music box things.

      edit These guys:

      Also, SPOILER ALERT

      did this happen to anyone else, when you meet up with Slackjaw and he tells you to get information from him in exchange for an easier way to get into the Golden Cat, when you leave his office, all of his men attack you, who previously didn't seem to mind you. then after you get the note card for him, when you bring it back, Slackjaw attacks you. I ended up killing him and making my own way through the Golden Cat (instead of the back door by Granny Rags).

      End spoiler

      Just finished the second mission with the high overseer. Oh no... a knife in the back is too good for him. I branded his face with the heretic brand. Enjoy the rest of your life as a street beggar, punk!

      Re: SPOILER ALERT, I was never attacked by Slackjaw or his (non-infected) men. I do recall when another NPC told me about Slackjaw and how you never know how he will react; perhaps this was a result of your Chaos working against you.

      BTW: I'm inside the Golden Cat at the moment.

      Just finished the second mission (rescue in the Golden Cat). Once again, a knife in the back for the Pendleton brothers is too good for them. They're now mutes slaving away in one of their own mines a mile below ground. Bon appetit, bitches!

      And, of course, no kills. This is too fun. I even choked out the blinking assassins that came after me after I talked to Slackjaw.

      I guess because of my chaos level, I got a visit from 4 blinking assassins. good thing I have all my base powers:

      once I finish the game all the way through, I'm going to try it with no kills, no detection. Best $60 i've spent in a while.
