5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Addition to the Sly Cooper Franchise, February 17, 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time - PlayStation Vita (Video Game)
Many people were skeptical after Sony handed the Sly Cooper franchise to Sanzaru after Sucker Punch put all of their time and energy into the Infamous franchise, but I was pretty confident after their excellent work on the Sly Cooper HD Collection, and it turns out that there was absolutely nothing to worry out. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is on par with Sucker Punch's Sly Cooper and even surpasses it in some ways.

Most of Thieves in Time focuses on Sly and his ancestors, who all play similarly to Sly with their own little mechanics that differentiate them. Some of the time is spent with Bentley and Murray, though they're certainly not the main focus here. Bentley is a lot of fun, offering good platforming mechanics and solid old school shoot 'em up mini-games for hacking. Murray, though, is certainly the weakest aspect of Thieves in Time, offering brawler, beat 'em up levels that don't really add much to the game. But honestly, Murray's bits are a very small part of the overall game, which, I might add, is an excellent platforming game that any Vita owner should play.

The graphics are obviously cartoony with a comic book aesthetic, but the whole thing is very detailed with great lighting, art direction, animations, etc. It's a visual package that's entirely cohesive and charming throughout. This is one of the best looking Vita games.

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is a win for the Vita, as it's a great portable version of the home console game. Sanzaru has shown that they're clearly very skilled at making games, and all of their hard work and dedication is shown in this great game. I hope Sony lets Sanzaru work on more of their games in the future.

I picked up the Vita game card since the version that comes with the PS3 version is a download that takes up over 3GBs.
