Reviewer Leo Stevenson writes, "I missed out on Sly Cooper the first time around and only managed to play The Thievius Raccoonus and Band of Thieves when the HD collection was released… and that’s where I stopped.
"For all their charm, humour and the enjoyment to be had sneaking and stealing as Sly and the gang, I had no desire to play the series’ third game, Honour Among Thieves. The reason was simple: Sly Cooper always had a tendency to overstay his welcome. The first two games dragged on so much and became frustrating to play. They seemed to employ every trick in the book to artificially extend their play time."
