Through the simplistic gameplay, layout and fair guard usage, Circle of Strain can be a somewhat relaxing mission in ways with moments that may require a little more patience to get through unseen. Otherwise, an easy mission if the blackjack is your best friend.

COS2 focuses on assassination as a core objective for this short and simple mission, but otherwise offers some thieving aspects inside a refreshing type of estate and can be enjoyable to play, but isn’t quite as strong as its previous mission.
While the city segment loses it potential for providing little else than window dressing, COS3 is still a solid, easy going mission but again lacks some needed polish in many places. The mansion appears to be its core location and offers some nice moments to ensure an enjoyable experience.
Shunned is simply an above average mission which plays well enough for a short romp, using the undead theme in a tight environment to increase the challenge of stealth.
DOG is both a simple and easy mission to get through despite its unusual beginning and manages to approach its goals quite effectively, with only a few segments that will provide a sense of challenge for those who choose to avoid using the trusty blackjack.
Solid mission, looks and plays like an enjoyable classic Thief experience.
