Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (PS3) Review - Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks l Entertainment Fuse

The Sly Cooper franchise has been a steady and reliable series of games exclusive to the PlayStation since the release of the original back in 2002. To anyone who has played all three titles it has been an enjoyable experience to see how the characters have grown and developed as the gameplay has been innovated to improve the quality of the player’s experience. With the third game, Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, being released in 2005 for the PS3 it seemed like we wouldn’t get to see a modern version of the thieving raccoon but a teaser during E3 of 2011 proved otherwise. As of the 5th earlier this month the fourth installment of the Sly Cooper franchise was released to the pleasure of all Sly fans in North America; Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time was finally a reality.

When bringing back a beloved franchise on a new generation of consoles, especially so long after the previous one, there are a few perils most games can fall in such as trying to make their game so incredibly mainstream that it becomes an abomination or make it so identical to the previous iterations that nothing is given to the players besides tedious and stale gameplay. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, however, does not commit either of these developmental sins but instead brings a familiar and fresh feel to the PlayStation 3 proving that the Sly Cooper name is just as relevant as it once was. (PS Vita, PS3, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time) 9.0/10

Should we have expected anything different? These guys did a great job with the HD collection. The demo was amazing as well. Can't wait to pick this sucker up.

@Entertainment_Fuse

I'd gladly pay $100 for a package like that. This is as great a deal as any Sly fan is going to get. I've loved all the Sly games so far, and I can get the latest one on TWO different platforms at $40? Count me in. This is freaking awesome.

really enjoying this game so far.

sad to see it wasn't suckerpunch, but these guys did a great job on the HD trilogy (as you mentioned).

and $40 for the 2 versions is a steal, imo.

Is that when It's released in Europe? I might have to give this a miss until I've played GOWA, but it's definitely going to be part of my collection at some point.

Same. Unfortunately, it's SCEE or whoever's fault for the delay. I'm paying for 2 collector's editions in March: BioShock and GOWA. Can't afford another.

Sly Cooper will have to wait for a dry month. April or May seems about right.
