Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time
2 May 2013
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: Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is an easy purchase for fans of the series and may just win a few new hearts too. It’s not a console heavy-hitter, nor should you to expect it to offer the usual set-piece cinematics to which we’ve all become accustomed. What it does is try its hand at a good number of gameplay styles, building on the series and expanding the Cooper lore, albeit to varying degrees of success.
Excerpt: And so it goes: a re-release of an older game proves popular which leads to a new entry in the series. The Sly Cooper HD bundle has led to this new release, Sly Copper: Thieves in Time available on the PS3 and PS Vita but is this like slipping into a nice comfortable pair of slipper or more like meeting an old bully from school?
Excerpt: As someone who didn't really get into every major Sony-run franchise during the PlayStation 2 era, I never actually played a Sly Cooper game when this series was at its height. It seemed silly for me to even try to get into a new entry after so long. But it occurred to me that at least on the PS Vita, we don't really have much in the way of stealth/action platformers, especially not ones that pull from the sensibilities of the PS2 era.

Summary: Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is an authentic and highly enjoyable experience that should serve as a blueprint for how gaming franchises should be revived.
Pros: A Sly game from beginning to end, complete with the series’ humour, Well balanced game that eliminates the frustration found in earlier instalments, Vita version stacks up well to the PlayStation 3 edition
Cons: Some of the mini-games are a chore to get through, Motion based mini games don’t work well due to the unresponsive SixAxis controller, Like Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, it essentially feels like a PlayStation 2 game in HD
