Wrong wrong wrong, wrongy-wrong-wrong.
Garrett concerned about power and wealth inequities in the City? Garrett does not care. Garrett does not give a damn about your revolution. Garrett only cares about himself. Garrett has saved the world before, but only because he likes standing on it.
Plus, the civil unrest and disease aspects give it a very Dishonored feel, which makes this game look like an also-ran instead of a reboot of the original stealth action game.
And the voice is all wrong. Stephen Russell is not dead; indeed, as anyone who played Skyrim can tell you, he is still doing voiceover work. Why aren’t you using him, you dumbasses?
Overall, not impressed. I guess it was too much to hope for.
Oog. I’m not happy about this, not happy at all. I have loved the Thief series since it came out in 1998, and lamented the stupid political nonsense which shuttered Looking Glass.
The voice-actor in this trailer isn’t rotten, but he’s definitely NOT Garrett. Where’s the snark? Where’s the cynicism? Where’s the wry, grim, dark wit?
I could perhaps accept the civil-unrest theme, IF (and admittedly this is a BIG IF…) they provide a way for Garrett to play the rich factions against one another, and loot every one of them in the process.
Not holding my breath here either.
