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. Make no mistake, you should play it just for Sucker Punch's wonderful story and those fleeting moments of excellence as Sly, Murray, and Bentley, but don't expect the near-flawless execution of "Band of Thieves."
  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.

    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.

    An ambitious sequel (and possibly conclusion) that refuses to allow you to get bored - so much so that it ends up being more of a bad thing than a good thing.

    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]

The mechanics are simple and easy to get used to, the voice acting is great, the puzzles are orderly set out puzzles accompanied by great and smooth controls. The graphics and the art style is great for a PlayStation 2, and as simple as the game is, it can often pose a great challenge. Expand

    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

    Quite possibly the most polished game in the series. This franchise does seem to get better over time.

    I don't fully know how this happened. I gave Sly 2 a 9/10 and Sly 3 looks like it's doing the same things as Sly 2 but I just think theI don't fully know how this happened. I gave Sly 2 a 9/10 and Sly 3 looks like it's doing the same things as Sly 2 but I just think the gameplay is super mediocre. It is still varied like Sly 2 but nothing is fun. It might be possible that it's just me and that after Sly 2 more of the same just isn't cutting it for me. I'd have to go back and play Sly 2 over again to see if that's the case but I don't think it is and I got other things to do. Production wise Sly 3 looks and acts like everything I loved about Sly but...it's just boring to play. Expand
