Whats with all the fuss about the supernatural theme in Thief 4?

Thief 3 had the same supernatural, mythological aspect in it's storyline so what do people treat it like it's a new thing here? Granted, Ive yet to play the new game but jeez, it's like no one's played Deadly Shadows before

I'm pretty sure 1 and 2 did as well.

Can confirm zombies and robots in 1 and 2, respectively.

Thief has always included supernatural elements since the first game. Not sure what people are complaining about.

I haven't heard of any fuss (but then again I haven't been following the discussions on the new Thief much), but yeah, the supernatural stuff was already in the first and second games, with zombies, ghosts, weird magic, etc.

Really? I never played the first two games much to see to that. Maybe fuss isn't the right word, but I notice a lot of critics simply pointing out the supernatural stuff as if it doesn't belong to the game's story

What? I've avoided Thief 4 completely and even stopped caring about what people think of it, but one ofi ts early, common complaints among fans is that there WASN'T any supernatural stuff... I'm totally confused now.

AFAIK, the complaint was back when the developers claimed there was little/no supernatural element in the game, going for a more gritty/'realistic' theme. Of course, that all turned out to be bull, and it only served to annoy fans.
