Test Sly Cooper Voleurs à travers le Temps
28 March 2014
Conclusion: En dépit de son manque de grande nouveauté en comparaison avec les autres volets de la série, Sly Cooper : Voleurs à travers le Temps démontre que le gameplay initialement imaginé par Sucker Punch était suffisamment bien rôdé pour pouvoir perdurer sur cette génération de consoles.
Pros: Héros charismatiques, Réalisation graphique cartoon appréciable, Gameplay à mi-chemin entre plates-formes et infiltration, Incarner les ancêtres de Sly, Petit prix de lancement (40 euros), Cross-Play
Cons: Temps de chargements affreusement longs, Baisses de framerate régulières
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.
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.
Excerpt: Franchise fans will feel right at home in what’s now Sanzaru’s playground, but others may think Sly seems a little dusty. Not graphically, mind you, as this game is absolutely gorgeous, but in the gameplay department, where Sly feels much like it has for the past 10 years. This latest entry in the Sly Cooper pantheon has the theivius raccoonus and his pals traveling through time and to different worlds shortly after the end of the third game.
Excerpt: Sly Cooper is a raccoon who’s also thief. But he’s not a bad guy — er — animal. He steals only from other thieves. In Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, which is the fourth chapter in the Sly saga, the wily mammal travels through time with a few smart pals to unravel a great mystery. Back to help are Bentley, a bespectacled box turtle in a wheelchair, and Murray, a brawny pink hippo. Bentley’s chair moves as fast as a racecar and has rocket power.
Pros: Cool, beautiful graphics; lots of things to find; buy the PS3, get the Vita version free.
Cons: Long load times; writing should be funnier; design can feel uneven.
Conclusion: Given it’s spot on my most anticipated games of 2013 list, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time was more or less what I was looking for. While it wasn’t as innovative as the Sly of my dreams, it was nonetheless a solid, worthy, and all together fun romp with the old gang. While Sony may have decided to sit this on the bottom shelf marketing wise, I hope it sells enough that we might see another on next-gen consoles.
