Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus (2002)
Developer: Sucker Punch Productions LLC.
Platform: PlayStation 2
Purchase Date: 09/27/2002

Another game with graphics that will look beautiful forever.

Sly Cooper is a platform game where you play the title character, an athletic raccoon, who is out to to find the manuscript that belongs to his family of thieves who thrive in stealing from other thieves. It is one of the finest platformers on the PlayStation 2 because of its strict adherence to classic platform game conventions, which made the game quite challenging. You die from only 1 hit until you get a power-up and the game relishes in providing the player with a lot of really dangerous and tricky jumping sections. In each of the stages, there are codes to collect that provide you with the combination codes to the locked safes located within them and it will take skill and perfection to find them all. Graphically, the game's smooth animations and stylish art style serve it well even now. The game uses comic-book style story segments and they are fun to watch. The game also has some great voice acting and a lot of memorable supporting casts.

LIBRARY STATUS: 4 out of 5
