Jumping back into the action of Sly Cooper is probably one of the most enjoyable things I’ve done in gaming this year. Despite having played all the Sly games and knowing each level like the back of my hand, the Sly Collection offers nothing but pure platforming enjoyment since it’s almost a timeless game that’s thankfully made even more timeless thanks to the HD upgrade the games received. The Sly Collection puts together three amazing games that at times are the absolute pinnacle of platforming action on the PlayStation brand.
The Sly gameplay is still as fun as ever and holds up incredibly well today. Visually the HD upgrade the Sly games received look amazing and really brings the world Sucker Punch created to life. The $39 price point is a complete steal.
There are a few small audio issues that aren’t a major issue but a mere annoyance for any perfectionists out there. The aspect ratio for the cutscenes only fills a small portion of the screen which isn’t a drag but is a bummer nonetheless. The mini-games aren’t anything to write home about.
Back in the thriving era of the PlayStation 2, Sony released a series that while popular never quite got the attention or immediate hype that some of its peers received. The game in question is the Sly Cooper series from developer Sucker Punch. Yes, for any younglings out there or new gamers, Sucker Punch did develop something else before they went the epic superhero route with Infamous.
