Summary: Sly Cooper does a good job at everything it brings to the table. It has a somewhat film noire / 70's spy movie mix flavour to it in both look and sound. You play Sly, a raccoon thief who has to infiltrate the layers of master crooks and steal back the pieces of a family treasure. Standard platforming rules apply; There's lots of running, jumping, dodging and collecting items. This brings a classic platforming feel to the game, in addition to some other items.
Summary: I bought this game for my 6 year old son and found myself enjoying it as much as he was. Although the characters were very simple and cartoon-like they were also endearing. The puzzles, races and graphics were all very well done and not TOO simple. My son and I would pass the controller back and forth to each other when one of us would die. This game was much better than I had expected and we had a lot of family type fun.
Summary: i highly recommend this game. my 2 sons ages 6 and 9 as well as myself(a mom), have all enjoyed this game. players of all skill will find this game fun and challenging. the game has a good story line and there are 3 different challenges within this game; first, to beat each level. second, to find and collect all the bottles to open the vaults in each level. and third, to beat the timers for each level.
Summary: I bought this game for my 3 year old for Christmas and he loves it. He did really well until the final levels to get to Clockwerk and then he needed mommy to step in a help him out some. We still haven't finished the master thief sprints but we have finished the rest of the game.
Summary: This game is hard to get used to, but that's where the cons end. Thsi game is so addictive, I have beaten it twice and I still can't get off it! I mean, if you want a game that you can keep playing get this! Though don't even try the master theif sprints; they are imposible to beat. Adults, don't get me wrong, this looks like a kids game and the story line is like a kids game, but you will be playing for hours! This game rocks!
Summary: Once again on my quest for Spyro-like games, I rented this and immediatly liked it. There is a huge flaw though. You get hit, you die and it's back to the beginning! I tried to solve that with my gameshark, but for some reason that code makes a button go all crazy and it wont work. So, you can't grab hooks, you can't get to the boss w/ the mirrors top layer. If they make a Sly 2 and I am sure they will, I hope it will have a life meter!
Summary: Sly Cooper is a young master thief, assisted by his turtle buddy, Bentley, and a hippo named Murray. The threesome set out on a mission of vengeance, striking back against the five criminals who killed Sly's father and stole the Thievius Raccoonus. The Fiendish Five have split up and gone their separate ways since stealing Sly's book, so you'll traverse through five separate worlds.
Summary: Well, I think you can get the details in other reviews. I'm going to keep this review short. "Sly Cooper and the Thievious Raccoonus" compares well to other platform games such as "Jak and Daxter" and "Ratchet and Clank." It is a well designed game and has no serious flaws. For the impatient, there are no noticable pauses while the game grabs data from DVD.
