Sly Cooper Thieves in Time
Family Friendly Gaming
19 November 2013
Excerpt: Sony brought back Sly Cooper in the PS3 game Sly Cooper Thieves in Time. This home console game came with a free copy of the PS Vita version. The Cross Save feature allows gamers to save it on the Cloud. A game can be played on both the PS3 and PS Vita. Which means this home console game is also a portable game.
Summary: Sly Cooper has come out of retirement to try and solve the mystery of why pages have been disappearing from the Thievius Raccoonus, the tome of family history for the Cooper lineage of master thieves. Reunited with best friends Bentley and Murray, the trio set off on a quest through time to save Sly and his ancestry from a mysterious new threat.
Conclusion: For a generation denominated by shooters, it’s rather refreshing to see the platforming genre still alive and kicking. While this title doesn’t break the mold, it does provide a refreshing take on the series which brings about unique sequences and memorable experiences. The overall experience can take you anywhere from 8-12 hours to complete, depending on how your approach the game.
Conclusion: There’s fun, then, to be had with Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time , especially for those familiar with the original series, but in following a “see what sticks” approach to adding content rather than focusing on exploring and updating the franchise’s core mechanics, Sanzaru have ended up with a game that’s caught somewhere between the past and present and, no matter the nostalgia, that isn’t quite good enough in 2013.
Excerpt: Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time arrives eight years after Sly 3 with Sanzaru Games taking over the mantle from original developer Sucker Punch, who are currently busy with the grittier Infamous series. It’s great to see the return of Sly, Bentley, Murray and Carmelita, all of which are strong characters that have always added a lot to the series.
Excerpt: Fans of the Sly Cooper franchise have had to wait over seven years for a new instalment in this popular platformer series, but thankfully the wait has been well worth it. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time serves up a highly entertaining, lengthy adventure that can be enjoyed by gamers young and old, and features enough memorable moments and comical situations to go down as one of the most engaging platformers in PlayStation history.
Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time PlayStation Vita Review
10 March 2013
Excerpt: Longtime PlayStation supporters and fans of great adventure games in general will find a lot to like about Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time for the Vita. Developed by Sanzaru Games in place of series creator Sucker Punch, this entertaining 3D romp pays homage to the celebrated PS2 franchise with similar mechanics and the familiar cast of heroes, while continuing the plot from the critically acclaimed Honor Among Thieves.
Pros: Quality Sly Cooper experience, Cross Buy functionality if you purchase the PS3 version, multiple time periods to explore, plenty of collectibles.
Cons: Load times galore, camera troubles, unnecessary motion/touch controls.
Excerpt: I’ve been a fan of the Sly Cooper franchise since its debut a decade ago, when Sucker Punch introduced PS2 owners to its gorgeous cell-shaded platformer with kid-friendly cast. The game’s mix of stealth, platforming and level design had a certain charm to it that gripped me through three games in the series.
