Read an article just yesterday about how Thief was playable at CES in the AMD booth. They said the game is minimalist, with no hand holding, big flashing prompts etc. They also said you can NOT get through by hacking and slashing like Dishonored, you must think, choose a route, and avoid.
I wasn't interested before but after reading that it put my mind at ease a bit.
