Xbox is the first console from Microsoft and the 6th generation gaming platform. It was released on November 15th, 2001 in North America and on March 14th, 2002 in Europe. It didn’t achieve great sales – especially in comparison to its biggest rival, PlayStation 2 – but it was successful enough to let Microsoft prepare another console (Xbox 360) and use it to conquer a large portion of the market between 2005 and 2006.

Action 11 June 2004

The third installment in the bestselling first-person stealth series, Thief, developed by Ion Storm studio - team composed mostly of developers responsible for the first two parts of the series. The story of Thief: Deadly Shadows is independent from its predecessors, though once again we play the part of well-known thief named Garrett who was the main protagonist of the previous games as well. This time, Garrett's quest is to stop a long-prophesied advent of an era of darkness, which requires him to steal valuable treasures and artifacts from different parts of the city. But things take an unexpected turn when Garrett inadvertently awakens the ancient evil, and becomes considered a traitor by the members of his guild. In terms of game mechanics, the title does not differ significantly from its predecessors, and every mission in the game can be completed in several different ways. The main difference is the new graphic engine and body awareness mechanism through which we have much more control over the hero's actions.
