Excerpt: Damsels in distress. Pirates. Classic airplane dogfights. Tense computer hackings. Curvaceous law enforcers. Did I mention pirates? These things all have a point of congruity: each is an element in Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves . It's the latest "platformer" to arrive from Sucker Punch, featuring the rakish Sly Cooper and his burgeoning gang of good-hearted ne'er-do-wells.
Excerpt: Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves is the newest game in Sony's popular Sly Cooper series. This latest installment features a mix of both new villains and some older ones from earlier in the series. Also, for the first time in the series, the Cooper gang will be joined by several new members and you'll acquire some new playable characters!
Excerpt: Sly Cooper 3: Honor Among Thieves continues the story of everyone's favorite furry thief. Not only does Sly 3 continue the story, but it also continues the line's cartoon-styled graphics, sarcastic characters and all around fun. Each character and location looks just as good as they have in the past, if not better. Sly, Carmelita, Bentley and Murray all come across just as sleek and stylish as they ever have. The free-roaming worlds are also large and full of detail.
Excerpt: Sly Cooper, the thieving racoon, is now in his third adventure on the PlayStation 2. While other PlayStation 2 platforming franchises have dropped most of their platforming roots, Sly is more or less the same as he's ever been, once again offering some fairly laidback, simple, entertaining platforming. Fans and newcomers alike will find plenty to enjoy, but new additions to the gameplay aren't as successful as they could have been.
Excerpt: Let me just get this out of the way: the Sly series is Assassin’s Creed for kids (or, since Sly came first, Assassin’s Creed is Sly for adults). Either way, my need for stealthy action is fulfilled, but with Sly I don’t have to worry about people walking in while I’m murdering the Pope.
Excerpt: Sly Cooper and gang return to action in Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves. If you’ve played the first two games in the series, then the gameplay will be pretty familiar to you. This is certainly not a bad thing as Sly 3’s predecessors were excellent games. However, the addition of a few new playable characters and some 3D sequences has not really changed the game much from last year’s Sly 2.
