Players hungry for a more in-depth gameplay experience have the opportunity to replay missions by utilizing the time machine feature, thus providing an opportunity to sneak around an environment again using alternative moves and disguises in order to achieve even higher Master Thief ratings. In the new multiplayer mode, players play head-to-head and experience cooperative missions or replay mini-games together. The story line for Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves begins with Sly and his crew in disarray and struggling some setbacks. Bentley was crippled in the final battle with Clockwerk at the end of "Sly 2: Band of Thieves" and confined to a wheelchair, and Murray, feeling responsible for Bentley's tragic accident, has quit the team and chosen a path of non-violence and solace. Meanwhile, Sly learns of a secret family fortress that houses the amassed Cooper family fortune. Upon arriving at this hidden location, Sly discovers another enemy group attempting to steal the Cooper fortune. Sly and Bentley quickly realize they will need considerable help to defeat this new rival. Their recruiting starts with Murray, and once back on-board, Sly, Murray and Bentley set out to enlist some new and familiar faces in an effort to pull off a World Class heist. [SCEA] Expand

    An amazing accomplishment, especially considering the fact that Sly 2 was just released last year.
  2. Clearly the best game in the series yet, no ifs ands or buts about it.
  3. A great game, especially for kids, and the gameplay is simple but deep enough for anyone to enjoy.
  4. Bigger, longer, and Slyer than the previous two in the franchise. Although Sly 3 still suffers from a relative ease that has always plagued the series, the gameplay is varied and clever enough to keep a player of any skill level's attention.
  5. 81
    It's still a fun ride and many of the new additions work out well, especially the pirate sections, but there are enough rocky spots to make the game feel kind of awkward and hold it back from being truly great.
  6. This is a great game, its got a fun story, great humor, an assortment of different traps and challenges to keep you thinking and guessing, and a great graphical experience.
  7. Sly 3 is a solid and inoffensive kids'adventure which perfectly satisfies the needs of its target audience and credits it delivers with a much more discerning nature than other games of its sort. [Dec 2005, p.98]

    This is my childhood favorite combining the best from Sly 1 and 2, without most of the shortcomings. The ability to replay misions over Sly 2This is my childhood favorite combining the best from Sly 1 and 2, without most of the shortcomings. The ability to replay misions over Sly 2 was great and the charactar roster was greatly expanded. As for the gameplay it is as good as ever, but now you can sail. I can't tell you how many hours i've spent and coins i've colected on the great sea. Though the campain was shorter than Sly 2 it still managed to pack quite a punch, get it, get it? Couse it's SuckerPunch and yeah you get it. Expand

    Great game overall.! Excelent graphics (albeit some slow-downs during gameplay), steady controls and great audio. However, I honestly prefer Great game overall.! Excelent graphics (albeit some slow-downs during gameplay), steady controls and great audio. However, I honestly prefer Sly 2: Band of Thieves. This third entry is waaaaay to easy and I find it to be less excinting than the previous version (in terms of the plot, for example). The new playable characters are a blast, specially the Guru, but you only get to play him for like 5 missions. If you are a fan os the series, buy it. Otherwise, a rent will be just fine! Expand

I feel like the first, second, and fourth have so much more to offer. The game feels rushed, and the storyline isn't as great as the second. The new gang members are fun but very underdeveloped. Good game otherwise though. Expand
