Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Review | Cheat Code Central

Cheat Code Central: "In the eight years that Sly Cooper has been absent from the video game universe, things have changed a bit. Pacing, characterization, and storytelling have become an important part of the industry, but all of these things are missing from Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. What we're left with is a schizophrenic collage of historical tropes, pop culture references, and antiquated storytelling" (PS3, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time) 3.3/5

"Very little has changed in the last eight years. And that’s a bad thing."

Meanwhile same site gives Super mario bros wiiU a 4.7, a game that had recycled textures from the wii game, and had almost nothing new to offer from the wii game. The double standards of cheatcc.

if its not a big recognizable name like mario, zelda,assassians creed, or call of duty, then its okay, but if its sly even though its added some new things and improved on the platforming, then its not okay.
more reasons for why i dont trust mainstream reviews
SLY fans love sly, DMC fans hate DmC,
critics hate sly, critics love DmC
sly improved on everything gets 6/10 , DmC downgraded most things, gets 9/10

I totally agree!
By the way, Sly Cooper looks Amazing!
It bleeds color and atmosphere. Very detailed cartoon world.

In all fairness though, Mario is Mario. Aside from adding new power-ups, what can you do to improve upon that formula? They might have been phoning it in for the last few games, but that's because they can't change anything without needing to dodge the minefield that killed almost every other nineties platform hero.

Sly made way for games like Assassin's Creed or (imagine this?) Arkham City. Hell, even Infamous. It's not super professional to judge a game based on what it could have been - especially since fans probably wouldn't have loved a true open world Sly - but for it to be exactly the same?

Seems an odd design choice unless Sony presumed the only people buying Thieves in Time would do so for nostalgia reasons.

Yeah but its still a double standard, call of duty,Mario,zelda,assassians creed are pretty much the same game with a few improvements and they get 9/10, sly does it and is vastly superior to the originals and gets a 6,heck uncharted 3 was the same exact thing only difference was better hand to hand combat and graphics it got a 10/10, sly isnt a bad game its actually awesome but because it stayed true to its roots instead of turning into a over the top action game,with guns blazing it gets a 6, its just very strange,though as ive said before im not surprised,mainstream media is awkward like that, and thats why ive never trusted a review unless its from a unbiased gamer on YouTube thats not being paid to review a game.

Really so its a double sandard?

So in reality sly is better or equally good as mario galaxy 1 and 2

Etc...
Wow
U sony fans live in a diff planet

mario galaxy was an okay game, but its not ground breaking, most of the things done in galaxy were done in ratchet in clank games so whats your point, and just beacuse someone likes another platformer besides same old milked mario that doesnt mean that they are wrong for liking it.
heres a list of very good games that stay true to their roots but are essentially the same thing but get high scores, these will prove my point
uncharted 1,2,3
god of war1,2,3
every 3d zelda
every donkey kong besides the konga
every ratchet game besides deadlock,ffa,all 4 one
a crap ton of mario games
every call of duty
every assassians creed
and again these are some very good games but at the end of the day they were the same they just added a few improvements, and thats not bad, i really like that, so stop being a blind nintendo fanboy, heck i love playstation but im not blind to kiss their butt.

@Dread
so...you're saying no games can be better than or equally as good as Mario?

and you are the one saying Sony fans live in different world?! it's actually YOU who are living in a different planet where you can't look pass Mario and acknowledge that there are other good and better games out there!

It's like a crime to enhance features which made a game good. What's bad that retains what made it enjoyable?

" very little has changed " THATS A GOOD THING and well done to Sanzaru to stick to the good old formula

I'm really starting to think a lot of people and reviewers are on Sly overload after plowing through the 40-60 hours of the Sly Collection last year.

And now they are expecting that "Next-Gen" or "Evolved" Sly game experience and get more of a classic Sly, which is what I want, and what Sanzaru wanted to deliver, and they tend to focus on the "same ol' sly formula is bad!" Minus Points! Where are my Killstreaks!!!
