Video: Let's Replay Thief: The Dark Project

Featuring Paul Dean, man of steal.

Classic stealth series Thief is getting a reboot this week. We're promised "unprecedented immersion", "ground-breaking visual elements" and "a truly tactile first-person experience", all thanks to "jaw-dropping Next-Gen technical possibilities". That's right, they capitalised "Next-Gen". That's how Next-Gen it is.

So we thought we'd take a look at the original Thief released in 1998, when "unprecedented immersion" meant switching off the Anglepoise and turning up the volume on your Aiwa speakers. In this Let's Replay video, Ellie Gibson is joined by Thief buff (Thuff?) Paul Dean. They take a jolly jaunt through The Haunted Cathedral, which pretty much does what it says on the tin, while reminiscing about all things Old-Gen.

We hope you enjoy the video. If you have any suggestions for future Let's Replay games, please let us know in the comments. And check back Next Week for the Eurogamer review of the new Thief.
