Is there a closing cut scene? After completing the final objectives I'm
sent back to the main menu. Not a complaint I just didn't want to miss
anything.

Yes. Try going back to the level and pressing Alt-Ctrl-Shift-End.
Perhaps you clicked on "Menu" instead of "Continue".

I didn't see it either. I had to watch it as an AVI file in a seperate
program because it wouldn't play in-game. Of all the bugs in the game,
messed up videos was one of the biggest.

I never did get to see the video before "down with dead men." Windows
would crash everytime I tried to watch it.

I just checked the "movies" folder, it seems that only half of them played
in-game. At least I get to see them now, thanks!

I haven't had this problem at all. Have you tried running:
regsvr32.exe /s LGVID.AX

.... in your Thief2 directory, before starting the game, as mentioned at:

Haven't had this problem either, it's all running quite bug-free here.
Maybe it's more a problem with certain versions of Windows, I could imagine
98,Me and XP to be not so 'resilient'.
(Although it's easy to blame everything on the poor old OS.)

My personal educated guesswork (and it's no more than that) would be to
blame the problem on a corrupted Windows registry. The only decent
solution that I know of is to completely re-install Windoze - pretty
drastic.

Yeah, I tried it all. Nothing worked. There's been quite a number of
posts in ttlg forums about the same issues.

Actually, I did that too. The result was that *none* of the videos
played between levels. And I still couldn't watch b24 and b26 (I
believe) without windows crashing. That's with a newly downloaded
installer for T2X, as well.

Bizarre, but there it is.

I finished the game before I reformatted anyway and the replayability is
nill, given as I finished it on expert, which was too easy to begin with.

It was ok......but nothing I'd write home about.

If *Windows* crashed, then I would blame the video driver or video card.
If T2X *only* crashed, then I would blame the movie codec driver.

Yeah, the game should have more opponents on the harder levels. I
reckon there's a huge gulf in sneaksie skills between newly-initiated
taffers, and those who are darkness-hardened by 5 years of taffing
inside dozens of third-party mansions and crypts.

I'm sure I read somewhere that there was a known problem with some movie
files in T2X, particularly mission 6, causing a crash.

I couldn't see any movies until I re-installed the VP3 codec.
