I am already a fan of the Sly Cooper series, and this game was anything but a step down.
-Hilarious cut scenes
-Fun boards to explore and great graphics
-Awesome game play and fun missions
-Worth the money
-Some characters are drinking/smoking
-A little bit of risque things (mainly Carmelita's outfits)
-You are playing as a gang of thieves
Continue reading if you want more elaboration on the list, but otherwise, this is a fun game for younger kids to begin their gaming on the PS3.
The story of Sly only stealing from other thieves doesn't really make him a true bad guy. This time, he's doing it to save the Cooper history from being erased from the past. (Okay, spoilers are coming up) The skunk behind it all has his own team of villains to help him remove the Coopers since Sly's dad put his father in jail (which isn't really a good reason, but Sly confronts him saying that). The motion controls and graphics are great, but the game takes longer to load since it's harder for the PS3 to handle. Murray, Sly, and Bentley are as amusing and lovable as ever. It took me a little bit to be comfortable with the new art style since it was a giant step. There are so many more great cut scenes. I was disappointed how Carmelita basically wears a bathing suit, which, if a cop did IRL, she would easily break a bone or get shot by the criminals. The other characters look fine, and my favorite villain was the Grizz. Sly is still the slickest character around, and him and Carmelita's love story finally comes true. I was kind of mad at the ending because the most you can find is an unlock able clip of Sly landing in the desert. So, hopefully we'll get to see more of that. There is a bit of drugs and drinking, but barely any. The thing I disliked the most about this game was that Penelope was a villain! She was my favorite character because she was a nerdy girl like me and we both love to drive and fly remote control things. She and Bentley where the perfect couple, and then Bentley just attacks her and she hates him. It was so stupid and I hope that they will bring back Bentley and Penelope. The educational bit? Well, you kind of learn about the time periods you go in, but don't think this will be a history lesson for your kids. One more thing, there is a mission where Carmelita does a belly dance and they even zoom on her butt when you shake it. A bit risque for me, but all in all, a fantastic game.
