Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Review | Rev3Games

Adam Sessler of Rev3Games gives his review of Sanzaru Games' recently released Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.

"The idea of Sly Cooper and friends returning is a fine one, but with this outing does nothing to make the case, and it dilutes a solid formula with distractions, bringing nothing new or lasting." (PS3, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time) 2/5

I'd like to note that Adam's a HUGE Sly fan (which he mentions in the review). If anyone was going to give Thieves in Time perfect marks, it was him.

That being said, I'm still buying the game. The last great platformer to come out for PS3 was Rayman Origins, and that was over a year ago. My platformer itch needs to be scratched, and at $40 it's an easy investment to make.

Not necessarily, the fact that he is a big fan could mean he had extremely high expectations going into Sly 4 and they just weren't met.

Regardless of the reviews, with everything I've seen from Sly 4 it looks like more Sly, and that anyone who enjoyed the first 3 would enjoy it.

If he liked the other Sly games then he shouldn't be complaining about this!! Makes no sense!!

"...but this outing does nothing to make the case, and it dilutes a solid formula with distractions, bringing nothing new or lasting..."

This quote also applies to quite a few games he's given high/near perfect/perfect scores to, as well. He can say what he will about being fan but he's being a hypocrite with statements like that.

EDIT: I have disagrees, but no responses. Classic!

The call of duty games for one. He's even given Madden games better scores. There are more, but those make the point the best.

Send me the link to where HE himself has reviewed a Call of Duty game.

EDIT: And don't send me Xplay/G4 reviews. Those are done by Xplay as a whole...not by Adam himself. Adam, Morgan, and Blair PRESENT reviews, but they are generally done/written by interns.

@badjournalism:

Adam Sessler has never reviewed a Call of Duty game or a Madden game. He may have presented a video review for one of them, but they weren't his reviews. They were written by other members of G4.

COD BO2, MW3, Madden 13, and Madden 12 were all reviewed by someone else. I can guarantee you the rest were the same way.

"And don't send me Xplay/G4 reviews. Those are done by Xplay as a whole...not by Adam himself. Adam, Morgan, and Blair PRESENT reviews, but they are generally done/written by interns."

So when interns write his reviews for him everything is EPIC and Mind Blowing! But when Adam does them he is highly critical, nitpicks it apart and generally focus on the negetives? Gotcha!

I never said that. All I'm alluding to is that Adam has ALWAYS been spot on with his reviews. Every negative is BACKED UP.

From what im seeing on twitch streams about the game it is far better then the 4 he gave it. 4 in my book is when a game has problems that makes it almost unplayable. Sly 4 is not such a game.

Why give so much attention to the low scores and pay no attention to the high ones?
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   570d ago
It almost always happens. People are attracted by negativity. I'm guilty of it too but I still read the positive reviews to balance it out. Either way I was always going to buy this game whatever scores it got.

Who cares what it got, atleast were finally getting a sequel after all these years, from what ive seen its amazing
R_aVe_N  +   570d ago
I am playing it now and the lowest score I could give this game is an 8. Somebody had really high expectations for this game if you ask me. I for one am very glad to have another Sly game after all these years. For this company's first real outing of Sly I have to give them a lot prop's for holding true to the Sly games.
cleverusername  +   570d ago
Well I love it and any fan of the sly series will too, graphics and gameplay are amazing and the replayability is high too. Considering it's not a full priced game too I just don't understand it only getting a 2! Each to their own I suppose!!
