Excerpt: At this years E3, Sony gave out Sly Cooper demos that included exactly one half of the first world’s stages, and from that demo we were able to realize that this game was shaping up to be very good.
Excerpt: Hang onto your hearts - cell shading has just gotten better. It comes to us in the form of a new game developed by Sucker Punch that Sony has lined up as an exclusive for the PS2. Scheduled to be released in November, Sly Copper and the Thievius Raccoonus is one game any action platform lover should...
Excerpt: The promising demo we saw at E3 is all grown up, and it has turned into one hell of a cool game! Yeah, there was no doubting this would be a fun game, a good looking game with plenty of promise. But the extent to which Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus has managed to 'wow' us is very impressive.
Excerpt: I've never been a fan of platform games. I never even liked Mario. I don't know why but it's one genre I just couldn't enjoy. But now I have played Sly Cooper. While I doubt I'll become a huge platformer lover, from now on I might actually give them a chance.
