Cooper Is the King

As I said in my review of Thievius Racoonus, Sly is my all-time favorite series. And the 2nd game is my all-time favorite game. Why, you ask? Because it improves upon everything from the first game. Free exploration is now even more fun, and new playable characters are a welcome addition. The bosses, which is one of the best parts of Sly, are some of the best in the series (and the world). The graphics have greatly improved, and it has plenty of replay value. Finding the green clue bottles is annoying, but as it's not required, it doesn't hinder the game much. Stealth combat and up-front combat are both possible, whereas in the first game stealth combat involved running as fast as you can toward an enemy. Enemies must be defeated in more than one hit, making it more challenging, but the health bar is quite helpful. And ThiefNet, the website for buying abilities and selling stolen goods, is quite useful for a little extra cash. This is one for the ages.

Gameplay-5/5
Characters-6/5
Graphics-5/5
Exploration-6/5
Overall-7/5

Sly and his furry friends are back, this time better than ever before. In the second installment of the Sly Cooper series, Sly, Bentley, and Murray have to find, in various places across the globe, each different part of Clockwork, the evil owl consumed with hatred for the Cooper family. With wonderful graphics and dynamic characters, it is probably the best game in the Sly Cooper video game series.

We have to give sucker punch alot of credit. the graphics in this game arent so great, but the gameply is fantastic. I've never played a game that can keep me playing for hours and hours. You get so caught up in everything that yopu lose track of time and the next thing you know, youve been playing for 4 hours straight. the story is a 10, the gameply is a 10, so its pretty much perfect
