Penetrating complex defences, sneaking between searchlight beams, beating the world’s super criminals and law agencies to priceless treasures… It’s all in a night’s work for Sly Cooper, gentleman thief, raccoon raider and hero of The Sly Trilogy.
In Sly Raccoon, you are introduced to Sly’s repertoire of skills in a series of fast-paced levels which demand everything from hanging from zip-lines to disposing of fire-breathing workmen. As you search every area – clambering up towers, scampering across rooftops and darting between guard patrols – you will discover a number of clues which unlock new abilities, as well as keys which open up more of the game world.
This winning formula is built upon in Sly 2: Band of Thieves and Sly 3: Honour Among Thieves. You can play as Sly’s comrades, Bentley the turtle and Murray the hippo, both of whom offer their own unique attributes for a different take on these light-fingered episodes. Bentley is the brainbox in Sly's gang and uses cool gadgets to stay one step ahead, whereas Murray barrels through foes with his sheer physical strength - and both characters complement Sly's stealthy sneakiness. And in Sly 3: Honour Among Thieves, even more mini-games and characters are packed into an already massive experience.
All three games are set in sprawling, superbly atmospheric worlds offering a real mixture of platforming, puzzle-solving and combat – and plenty of charm. Hours of fun can be had in the alluring streets of Cairo, Prague, Paris and more, with a series that has proved hugely influential since its original release on PlayStation 2. Steal away to spend some quality time with these remastered gems – you’ll have the crime of your life.
