An anonymous reader writes: After 9 years of development, The Dark Mod is now a Standalone Game. Thief fans can now enjoy over 60 fan made missions which capture the essence of the Thief 1 \ 2 games. Originally created as a reaction to Thief 3; with the upcoming release of Thief 4, many are comparing what was done here (a faithful extension of the old gameplay) to what Eidos has shown thus far. Can a little Doom 3 mod compete against a blockbuster AAA title? Should we even compare them?
