The lights are on
The Sly Cooper series is one of my favorite series of all time, and this new entry just cements that even more. This game brings so much to the table and every worry that I had about it is gone. This game doesn't ever really falter. The classic Cooper gameplay is back with a few different changes that are all for the better. Sly and his teammates control better and they just feel better in your hands. I actually enjoy playing as other characters than Sly for once! That was one of the biggest problems with the previous two, and Sanzaru has fixed that very well. All of Sly's ancestors play very well and they all brings something interesting to the table. My only minor complaint would have to be there aren't enough levels where you play as just Carmelita. Every world is completely fleshed out and fully realized. The details are amazing, and the number of secrets waiting around every corner are astounding. There are 3 different types of collectibles in each level which leads to tons of post-game content. The characters are awesome as always. Sly, Bentley, Murray, and Carmelita are just as cool as ever and they have a whole new group of friends to play with! The villains which are an integral part to the Sly series are amazing, including one that you won't ever come seeing! I was legitimately shocked when that specific villain was revealed! The soundtrack is another absolutely remarkable thing about this game. It's definitely one of the best soundtracks of any platformer I've ever played. It rivals even Crash Twinsanity (which is one of my favorite games ever)! With the awesome story and characters, gameplay, music, and overall nostalgic feel, Sanzaru has been enormously successful with their labor of love, and I can't wait to see more from them!
