Sneak Thief 5: Final Five
The long-nosed thief gets out of high-flying situation and falls, rather glides, into Sneak Thief 5: Final Five, the fifth and final installment of the Sneak Thief series. The man's adventures have gotten him stuck inside a mechanical fish, packed in a horde of his clones, and dodging robot laser attacks on a hot air balloon! His antics and mishaps have landed him into more trouble than he probably bargained for. As the persistent pilferer finally arrives at Prof. Belamy's doorstep via his handy-dandy glider, he is probably looking forward to getting this job over with. With the final invention waiting inside the compound, you know Pastel Game's cunning and comically ingenious criminal will stop at nothing to finish the figh... I mean job. Also, when did he have time to change into a blue jumpsuit after his daring free-fall escape?
The formula hasn't changed and remains true to the point-and-click adventure gameplay. You and your mouse will scan across every nook and cranny to grab up any items by clicking on them. Using your keen intellect, you will use and combine the items you come across to solve puzzles to snag the professor's final blueprint. Some items combine in rather...interesting ways so exploration and creative often times rewards players. You thought microwaving a frozen brain was weird then be ready to create a unique "battery".
Play the entire Sneak Thief series:
This game ends the series on a good note that makes both you and the thief glad that you stuck it out to the very end of the job. The art style and animations done by Kamil Kochanski are top notch, as they always have been, and make exploring the environment even more rewarding. The game's approximate fifteen minute or so clear time is a standard for the series, but will get you smiling for the rest of the day just by clicking around the screen. If you are a follower of the Sneak Thief's escapades or are just looking for a nice, quick adventure series then look no further. Just don't ruin the story line for yourself by playing this one first. It will be well worth your time when you finally see the thief's mission all come together.
