Good

Beginning of a great PS2 platformer series

I'm a huge PS2 platformer fan, games like Sly, Jak&Daxter, and Ratchet&Clank really get me excited. Having played the entire Ratchet PS2 series (and working on the PS3 titles), I decided to give Sly a try, and see if it could match Ratchet.

Sadly, when comparing Ratchet 1 and Sly 1, Ratchet wins easily, and here's why. Sly 1 took at least a 1/5th of the time as Ratchet 1. The fact that one hit from an enemy means death gets VERY annoying. The plot is not nearly as good as Ratchet, doesn't pull me in, wanting more. Also very repetitive, the same formula for each boss, with a few tweaks in between. Sly also makes less use of checkpoints, which gets especially annoying having to repeat long and easy sequences. Sly 1 is also missing something Ratchet 1 had, which was multiple weapons.

Sly 1 does have a few things Ratchet 1 doesn't have, which is tougher, and more challenging platforming sequences, an ability to stealthly take out enemies, and disappear into the night again, and a mildly interesting love interest.

I do not know how they did it but this is the best game ever, I have completed it 2 times and i am on my third. I own all three of three of them and i love them all VEARY VEARY much, this is a great game for a person of any age, and i do not care what any other site says if they gave it a 2.4 or a 5.0 i give it a BIG 10.0, if you play this game i will guarantee you will love it.
