Replay – Sly Cooper And The Thievius Raccoonus
Sucker Punch Productions is currently hard at work on Ghost of Tsushima, but fans continue to demand this team make a new Infamous or Sly Cooper game. The studio is a hit maker, and the first title that really took off for it was Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus. Released on September 23, 2002, exclusively on PlayStation 2, Sly Cooper showed us stealth could be used to deliver unique maneuvering methods in a platforming setting. The success of this title brought a string of sequels, an eventual remaster by Sanzaru Games (which we look at today), and a fourth installment by that same studio.
Sly Cooper has his place in the history of games, but the odds of him returning for a fifth installment are slim. Let us know what you think of this series in the comments section below, and be sure to stick around for the second segment which gives us a look at film franchise done up in a way you wouldn't expect.
