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.
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.
Summary: Timing has never been Sly Cooper's best friend. From day one he's been overshadowed by Sony's other two 3D platformers - Ratchet & Clank and Jak & Daxter. Despite remaining in the shadows, Sly was able to sneak his way into three PlayStation 2 games.
Summary: The Sly Collection features three PS2 hits (Sly Cooper and the Thievius Racconus, Sly 2: Band of Thieves and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves) remastered in high def. and delivered on a single Blu-Ray Disc.
Sly and the gang return in an unmissable compilation
16 November 2010
Conclusion: Side note: We’re not sure why Sly was targeted for an HD remake over the Jak and Ratchet trilogies, but we’re happy to have him back. We just hope enough people check it out despite Sony’s lack of promotion – if this tanks, further HD remakes may be locked up for good.
Pros: Unbeatable value - 3 games for $40!, Heists are great fun, Compelling characters and world
Cons: Platformer overdose, Couple of low-res movies, Unneeded Move minigames
