Now that I can pick this up for $19.99 I have to ask, Is this just a kid's game?

This game looks interesting, but I'm wondering it it's just a kid's game or is this enjoyable for adults too? I'm not a kid but I've played stuff like Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy games and enjoyed them very much on the PS2. I even liked the first two Spyro games. Not a big fan of Sonic or Rayman games. Also like Ratchet & Clank and the Mario Galaxy games. I do like adventure games and I am a kid at heart. Trying to take a break from RPG's and round out my PS3 library with some light hearted games. (I never played any of the Sly games on the PS2)

Currently playing Assassin's Creed/Uncharted/Mass Effect series games.
Any thoughts? Will I like this game do you think?

I'm kinda bummed no one responded to this. If you didn't buy it for $19.99, it's still available for $24.99 and it's worth it. These are classics of the PS2 era that were all very highly reviewed. It can be childish at times, but it's definitely a fun escape! Plus, if you're a completionist, it'll keep you busy for QUITE a while with 3 full titles in here. Totally worth it for less than half the price of a new game!

I'm 26 and am playing through these games for the first time, and I wouldn't categorize them as kids games. Sly is something people will enjoy at any age.

$19.99 at newegg right now. I wish this would drop to $14.99. Ah, well there's always Black Friday coming around the corner.

Have same question as the OP had. Are these games more like Rayman: Origins with tons of platforming that you have to be quite precise about or more like say, Ratchet and Clank, A Crack in Time or Tools of Destruction where there is still platforming but is more story driven. My patience at precision platforming games is not what it used to be so I'm hoping it's more like Ratchet & Clank, although I do understand that Sly Cooper is more stealthly and not a weapons game.

These games are pretty simple. I don't know if I would recommend the collection though. I LOVED the first Sly game. It was much more linear and is much shorter than the others. 2 and 3 are more of a sandbox style. They are still very story-driven, but before you can move forward in a mission, you always have a few side missions to do. For me, this got really old really fast. I found the story in the first game much more interesting and charming, and I liked that you just play through relatively small levels and move on to the next, without having to clean up a bunch of mandatory side missions.

Like Riggs said 2 and 3 are more sandbox, like Assassin's Creed series in some ways. Yet I loved all 3 games. Each was different enough, like in Sly 3 you get a team (think Ocean's 11) together, each with their own skills.

I think the problem for me was just playing them all back-to-back. Usually after you play a game, plenty of time will pass before you can play the sequel. Loved Sly 1, but playing 3 Sly games in a row was just too much. I ended up getting bored halfway through Sly 2.
