Prepare to be blown away. This game has the best sound ever, and that is not an exaggeration. It is the first time EAX has been used to such an extent that it is essential to the atmosphere.
Thief 1 was actually the first one
Followed then by System Shock 2 (another incredible use of EAX which was built using the same engine
) and, of course, Thief 2.
I remember first playing Thief 1 with an Aureal card and it had A3D and it was ok. Then I got a Live and turned on EAX and was blown away by its use of sound. It's a shame more games haven't utilized sound to the same extent.
