Review – Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time – A Blast From The Past (Gaming Irresponsibly)

Joey writes: Handing your beloved franchise off to another developer has often produced unimpressive results. It has happened time and time again, and will continue to. So when it was announced that the Sly Cooper franchise – one of my favorites from the PS2 era - would be handed off to the relatively unknown Sanzaru Games, I was a bit worried.

Sly Cooper Thieves in time. Sneaking onto shelf stores near you. Sony learn how to market your games. Don't push them out to die.

'Sneaking onto shelf stores near you.'

Very nice choice of words there. Hopefully the new advertising studio that Sony have just employed will make a difference.

CGI-Quality1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

Agreed

andibandit1261d ago (Edited 1261d ago )

we've been praying for that since PS3 released ...

one of the PS3's big releases this year has 10 comments so far, case in point....

"Sony learn how to market your games. Don't push them out to die."

Like Resistance 3, for example? Piss-poor sales of arguably the best game in the series is why Insomniac is no longer a Sony-only developer.

Resistance 3 was by far the best in the series. Another game that got almost zero advertising was Twisted Metal.

My favorite game from 2012.

showtimefolks1261d ago

Oh man resistance 3 don't even remind me for a game that has a great story and deep MO sny showed no effort. Yet they out in all their efforts for uncharted and killzone

I feel like EA does the same with their 2nd party studios, with their EA Partners program they barely advertise those games because they don't own the IP. Shadow of damned ZERO advertisement. Now Insomniac's next game fuse will suffer though that too watch

I am hooing is new advertisement firm actually does smart advertisement, you don't have to spend 50 million on each game but having some sort of advertisement would help.

People buy SLY 4 it's a awesome game. Let's support great software

CGI-Quality1261d ago

I'm sure Resistance 3 isn't why Insomniac decided, long before it even released, to go multi-platform. Google the info, the agreement was made long before that, and all things considered, they've remained close to Sony.

Knushwood Butt1260d ago

It had a decent single player campaign, but I'll take RFOM any day. Also, multi player was quite easily the worst of the series.

Plus, Capelli was the main character.

Also, setting it in America again was a lame choice.

I doubt advertising has much to do with it. Nobody advertises GT5 or Uncharted 3 but they still sell thousands of copies each week to this day.

How come this game gets so varying reviews. Some give it a 5 or 6 out of 10 and here we have a 9.3. I would really ike to see some balance in these reviews. Is the game mediocre at best or one of the best games available. I've never played a single Sly game in my life. Throw me a bone here.

LiViNgLeGaCY1261d ago

Just got my copy this morning and I've been playing it all day. I freakin' love it. You should get the Sly collection to experience these great games.

edenianrain1260d ago

The low reviews are from people saying it stays true to its roots and it does but these same people give assassians creed and call of duty high scores and those are the same thing every year,bit sly has added more characters,variety of mini games,a ton of well hidden collectibles,but you should play the originals first,all in all im a fan of ac and sly and id take sly over ac3.

BlaqMagiq241260d ago

Reviewers are saying though it sticks to its roots, it's not really anything special or do anything innovative compared to other open world games or platformers this gen. Personally it's no lower than an 8 and it's definitely a breath of fresh air. A lot of work and creativity was put into that game. Do yourself a favor and pick up the Sly Collection. It's like 20 bucks online now.

abzdine1260d ago

i'm getting this game no doubt about it. screw COD a** licker reviewers.
