Too much murray and bentley, not enough sly cooper. Should have stuck to the roots in that aspect. Looks very good for a sly game, great character interactions and relations. Decent replay value because you can go back to any level and get all the collectables if thats your thing. Worth a quick rent, but thats about it.
Don't get me wrong, this is a great game as indicated in the score, but make no mistake, it's a kids game. And that's not a bad thing.
It's got a beautiful art style, environments look great, it's discounted and yet is worth full price and more considering you get the Vita version with it.
This is a nice throwback to adventure/platforming games that have since disappeared from gaming and it's great to see it come back and executed so well.
But, lets face it, if you're an adult, the characters are just too obnoxious, voices too over the top and the experience, although pleasant and refreshing, is a bit too simple. Again, that's not to say there's anything wrong with this formula, just know what audience you're in before giving it a try.
