Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time Review: A few years late | CNET

CNET: "Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time completely nails the style and feel of the original trilogy, but doesn't do much to separate itself as a reimagined franchise. It's priced right and is great for kids and Sly Cooper diehards, but those on the fence shouldn't expect anything more than just a new Sly Cooper game in HD." (PS Vita, PS3, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time) -

i might need to pick up the sly collection and hop onto the bandwagon cuz ive considered picking up this title on the vita. not sure what else to play next after uncharted golden abyss

The Sly collection is a ton of fun.

I'd never played any of them before getting that, but ended up beating all 3.

BTW, nice avatar. I was playing multiplayer last night for the first time in a long time. Good times, although got a bit wasted in the second half of the session.

"not sure what else to play next after uncharted golden abyss"

Gravity Rush, Persona 4 Golden, Escape Plan, and LBP Vita. I played the demo for uncharted golden abyss, and I hated it.

@ refocusedman

I didn't have any trouble getting into a game, but only played deathmatch.

At one point ended up going up against a Japanese clan with a bunch of players. They were pretty good.

Also, I didn't have any freezing issue.

The review should be just happy that a 3D platformer was finally released for a console :L Havent seen those since Alice: Madness Returns.

As a fan of the franchise, I'm not sure what more could be expected other than what was delivered. It's a phenomenal platformer with the same great level design and humor from the original series. Sanzaru delivered everything I wanted in this, the 4th installment of the series.

CNET's reviewer for this, Jeff Bakalar, sites motion control as a poor implementation. While I certainly agree with his comment that most game steer clear of it, in this game it makes sense and, most importantly, it's responsive. I haven't had an issue with it yet and I'm just about done with the game.

It seems that Jeff has some reservations about giving a game at a budget title anything more than a glowing review. The knocks against the game are non-existent and, overall, it's an enjoyable romp.

I also find it interesting they make no mention of the Cross-Save and AR-Server functionality with the Vita game. Early on, the Vita serves to really assist with younger gamers, like my son, in locating hidden treasures, bottles, Sly maskes, etc. It's a pretty amazing use of the system and shows the potential for cross-controller gameplay.

Hmm, didn't know that was a thing, my killzone 3 doesn't freeze.

So far, it's not bad. But MAN, the rhythm mini-games as part of the campaign!
Omar91  +   1092d ago
so Far Im having a blast. They really stayed true to what made the pervious slys a a success. So why is every site hating on this one?
TheLastGuardian  +   1092d ago
The gameplay mechanics in the Sly Cooper series are already so nice and polished. I don't understand why some reviewers felt they needed to change. This is a game made for Sly Cooper fans, by Sly Cooper fans. It should only be praised for staying true to the formula.

I find Sly 4 every bit as enjoyable as when I played the first three on PS2. 75 on metacritic isn't bad, but this game deserves much better. Sly 4 is a gem. We need more games like this nowadays.
