    In a Call of Duty world, Sly Cooper is 2013's first unexpected breath of fresh, universally appealing air.

    Sly's return to mainstream platforming action is a welcome one. It's a wise-cracking charm-offensive specifically designed to juxtapose the words 'madcap' and 'romp' in the same sentence.

    Basically, the same great PS3 title we reviewed a while back, but portable and with exemplary CrossPlay functionality. Being able to whip out your Vita and pick up from where you left off (by downloading a Cloud save) is an absolute godsend and the synching process is flawless. [June 2013, p80]

    With colourful visuals, a neat little story, and some great voice acting, the game is only hampered by its simplicity, a few minor camera issues, and some long load times. Sure, it doesn’t bring anything radically new to the genre, but it is a good game nonetheless.

    Sly Cooper Thieves In Time is a well made action/platform that effectively recovers the formula that belonged to the saga at the time of PS2.

    Thieves in Time resembles a mini game collection made for PlayStation 2. The rough graphics, ridiculously long loading times and at times tedious platforming moments are justified by a well told story and lovingly created mini games.

    On one hand, it’s a fun, colorful, hearty little game that employs throwback platforming and collect-a-thon elements to good effect. On the other hand, it features a jarring mishmash of gameplay styles, lacks challenge and suffers from enthusiasm-sapping load times.

It runs wonderful on the vita involving every function of play the system offers. The characters and story line are both extraordinary with excellent personification. What I really enjoy about this game is that allows the player to hop on and accomplish continuous missions while following a story without consuming much of your time. The game is lengthy making it well worth my $8 lol! Nice job Sanzaru, I will be playing the rest of the series. Expand

    Easily the best game for the Vita yet; an immersive, nostalgic 3-D platformer that'll leave Sly Cooper fans and noobs engaged alike.

It's got a quirky sense of humour with fun over the top characters. The controls can be a bit tricky at first but once you remember a few button combos you'll be just fine. You are forced to use Vita specific features like the accelerometer a few times but it never gets too heavy handed. It has plenty of unlockables and areas to explore so if you want to squeeze every hour out of this game you should have dozens of hours of fun. The fact that is cross saves with the PS3 is a nice feature as well. I think k this is a solid and fun game any Vita owner should pick up. Expand

The thing that made me lose interest was the collection of mini-games but the story line was pretty neat. Compared to the PS3 demo of the game, I felt like this version was a lot more "cartoony". What got me intrigued was that you got to learn more about Sly's ancestor and got to play as them. Each Sly ancestor have a bunch of unique abilities. The game is pretty short compared to the other Sly games I've played, maybe that's just my preference but the game is pretty cheap to buy and the story itself explains what's going on so if you've never played a Sly game and start with this one, you won't be lost. I do recommend this game for those that want to get a new PS Vita game. Please read, game does get laggy at some points and it does get noticeable in certain parts but it's worth playing. Expand
