Keep it in the family
Sly Raccoon puts you in the skin of renowned master thief Sly Cooper, on the trail of the Thievius Raccoonus, the book containing all of his family's history and tricks of the trade. A nefarious gang known as the Fiendish Five has stolen the heirloom, dividing its pages among five separate hideouts – and Sly wants it back. So, chased all the while by long-standing nemesis and love interest Carmelita Fox of Interpol, Sly embarks on a series of whirlwind raids, simultaneously confronting the Fiendish Five and dodging the law on his tail.
Fast forward two years, and Sly 2: Band of Thieves picks up the action in Cairo, the scene of Sly's latest heist. This time Sly is attempting to prevent an old enemy from becoming a threat again, when he finds himself faced by a new mob: the Klaww Gang, a truly international collective which means Cooper must pay flying visits to France, India, the Czech Republic and Canada as he battles to overcome them. Once more, Inspector Fox is barely a step behind...
Finally, Sly 3: Honour Among Thieves sees the theme of ancestry return, as Sly attempts to open his family vault. However, a treacherous former family friend has heavily fortified the vault and in a close shave with death, Sly's life flashes before his eyes. This cues up a jump to the recent past, where Sly is making preparations for his latest job by circling the globe to recruit friends old and new. Meanwhile, Sly's biggest challenge of all looms large – his burgeoning feelings for the intrepid Carmelita Fox.
The Sly Trilogy collects three PlayStation 2 classics together on one Blu-ray Disc for the first time, adding brilliant bonus features to the mix and making this the perfect opportunity to play through some great memories all over again or discover its unique brand of super sneaky gameplay for the very first time on PlayStation 3.
A stunning High Definition makeover ensures superb picture quality and ultra-crisp visuals, giving Sly's adventures a brand new lease of life – the locations of his heists are more vibrant and alive than ever before and what's more, it's all playable in jaw-dropping stereoscopic 3D. Your living room really is centre stage, whether you're breaching an island fortress or tiptoeing between deadly security lasers.
Also included are four PlayStation Move mini-games for quick-fire fun outside of the main trilogy. Treasure Snagging involves using your PlayStation Move motion controller to collect coloured pieces as they cascade down the screen, Bentley RC Race sees you guiding a model chopper through rings, Interpol Target Practice requires you to shoot bullseyes, while Guru Dart Shooter challenges you to shoot enemies within a time limit.
All of the extra features of the original games can be found here, with the addition of full trophy support, so whether you're starting out as Sly for the first time or returning to an old favourite, The Sly Trilogy is the best way to experience three of the most enduring adventures in the history of PlayStation.
Penetrating complex defences, sneaking between searchlight beams, beating the world's super criminals and law agencies to priceless treasures... It's all in a night's work for Sly Cooper, gentleman thief, raccoon raider and hero of The Sly Trilogy.
In Sly Raccoon, you are introduced to Sly's repertoire of skills in a series of fast-paced levels which demand everything from hanging from zip-lines to disposing of fire-breathing workmen. As you search every area – clambering up towers, scampering across rooftops and darting between guard patrols – you will discover a number of clues which unlock new abilities, as well as keys which open up more of the game world.
This winning formula is built upon in Sly 2: Band of Thieves and Sly 3: Honour Among Thieves. You can play as Sly's comrades, Bentley the turtle and Murray the hippo, both of whom offer their own unique attributes for a different take on these light-fingered episodes. Bentley is the brainbox in Sly's gang and uses cool gadgets to stay one step ahead, whereas Murray barrels through foes with his sheer physical strength - and both characters complement Sly's stealthy sneakiness. And in Sly 3: Honour Among Thieves, even more mini-games and characters are packed into an already massive experience.
All three games are set in sprawling, superbly atmospheric worlds offering a real mixture of platforming, puzzle-solving and combat – and plenty of charm. Hours of fun can be had in the alluring streets of Cairo, Prague, Paris and more, with a series that has proved hugely influential since its original release on PlayStation 2. Steal away to spend some quality time with these remastered gems – you'll have the crime of your life.
