I was a big fan of the platform hit Sly Cooper when it came out, an influential game with beautiful Disneylike visuals and solid, stealthy gameplay.
The sequel Sly 2: A Band of Thieves is even bigger, with
huge, well-designed levels to explore. Nearly every feature
of the original has been supersized. A catchier soundtrack, punchier graphics, and larger laughs abound in Sly 2.
The lovable members of the gang are back and have a bigger part in the action this time. Bentley returns as the brain, Murray provides the muscle, and Sly is left to take care of the swiping.
One of the most fun factors in this new installation is the ability to play as both Bentley and Murray, who have a very different feel to their controls. The action and attitude have been turned up a few
notches and the overall feel of the first Sly title remains intact in this upgrade that is great for all ages.
