Games & Gear of 2012 – Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (5/31/2012)

 

 

There have been many games for the PlayStation 2 worth noting but the big three for me was Jak (and Daxter), Ratchet (and Clank) and Sly Copper (and random others). It was a sad day when Sly Copper finished the series with their third game while Jax dropped off the face of the earth. Gaming was a little less colorful and more dark and brooding (not that there’s anything wrong with that) with their passing; well happy days are here again because in May the gang’s getting back together in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. The Thieves Raccoonus, the all-powerful tome of stealing stuff in disappearing; not stolen like in the first game, but just vanishing from reality itself. It is believed that it’s because the Cooper family line in being removed from history one master thief at a time. Sly & friends must pull all their skills together, travel back in time, save his family from temporal genocide, find out about the evil which they don’t know nothing about and stop it somehow, and of course steal a bunch of stuff through history. Simple right?
