    It's a lot better than the first but still isn't all that good as it gets a bit repetitive.

    Great characters, a fun plot and very diverse gameplay. The graphical style is nice, boss battles are also great but the game doesn't really know what it wants to be.

    Es un buen juego de aventuras y plataformas, pero mucho peor que el primero de la saga. Es un juego mucho más largo, pero también mucho más repetitivo. Las misiones se repiten constantemente, recoger objetos una y otra vez. Tiene más escenarios principales que el Sly 1, pero no fases, las misiones consisten en trabajos que tienes que realizar en el mismoEs un buen juego de aventuras y plataformas, pero mucho peor que el primero de la saga. Es un juego mucho más largo, pero también mucho más repetitivo. Las misiones se repiten constantemente, recoger objetos una y otra vez. Tiene más escenarios principales que el Sly 1, pero no fases, las misiones consisten en trabajos que tienes que realizar en el mismo escenario, de forma que los escenarios te acaban aburriendo completamente. Es una forma de ahorrarse trabajo en diseñar niveles y malos secundarios por parte de los señores de Sony que han hecho este juego. Por ello he querido penalizarlo con un 5 raspado. Mucho mejor el Sly 1. Expand

    Amazing game! This a mixture between Action/Adventure/Platform and Open World. The gameplay is great, and the plot is very nice. Graphically very good, this game gets a full 7, because this is a very funny and nice game.

    This review contains spoilers. My personal favorite in the series. i remember when i was little seeing it and getting hyper over the idea of finally using Bentley and Murray as well, but i never knew it would end up being the best game ever. The plot is amazing and engaging, the characters are lovable (or hatable in all the right ways), the missions are much more dynamic and fun, it isnt constantly about keys anymore. Definitely recommend getting this amazing game. Collapse

    Being able to play as all three members further fleshes out the mission variety - I couldn't tell you the last time I've had so much unadulterated fun playing a game. [Nov 2004, p.126]
  2. Clever, enjoyable, and just plain beautiful, Sly 2 is an enjoyable interactive cartoon for gamers of all ages.

    This is exactly how a sequel should be done, and if there's anything wrong with it, it's only that it makes you wonder how Sucker Punch can possibly make as big a leap with the next game as they did with Sly 2.
