Excerpt: Sony is doing a fantastic thing by releasing The Sly Collection. This Playstation 3 (PS3) game includes Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, Sly Cooper 2: Band of Thieves, and Sly 3: Honor Amongst Thieves. These three Playstation 2 (PS2) games have been remastered in high definition.
Conclusion: The Sly Trilogy is worth a punt whether you played the originals or not. It still plays fantastically, and now looks gorgeous too. Prepare yourself for the upcoming fourth release, and grab a copy of this 2000's legacy.
Conclusion: Raccoonus, Sly 2: Band of Thieves and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves (and a hint of Sly Cooper 4) -- and they've never looked better. The mechanics of the game, puzzles, characters (like Murray the Hippo) and boss fights felt instantly familiar to me.
Summary: Sly Cooper may not be as popular as Jak and Ratchet, but his PlayStation 3 trilogy is the perfect candidate for an HD makeover. The Sly Collection packages three of Sony's very best 3D platformers into one budget title.
Conclusion: Whether you have or haven’t played the Sly Copper games, you owe it to yourself to pick up The Sly Collection for $39.99. This is one of those deals that trumps anything retailers can offer during the holiday season.
