a fairly straightforward action-platforming game with some stealth
elements (sneaking past guards, traps and security systems), some
mini-games (turret-shooting, racing, etc.) and a good number of
optional but useful abilities that you could collect.
The second game has similar mechanics, but is a bit more unique. Each
stage is a small but detailed open-world where you have to perform a
series of tasks to prepare for a heist; once you have performed all the
necessary tasks/collected the needed items, everything you have already
done during the stage comes together during the end heist.
Above all, these are both good-looking, stylish games with jazzy scores
and a lot of fun, charming characters. There's even some witty dialogue and
good voice-acting to top it all off. I still need to play both the third PS2 game
and this one (which was made by a different developer; the first three games
were made by Sucker Punch, who also made the Infamous series).
I agree with you 100% velcrozombie1. This game, despite some flaws is a lot of fun. I even like that they included Sly's ancestors with different abilities, and Carmelita becomes the most playable than in the 3rd. Believe it or not, you can obtain some treasure as Carmelita and you won't believe her reaction to her work when she brings a treasure back. She even gets a fun boss fight as well, the ones she get in the 3rd were pushovers. Best of all, this game has the best of her voice actresses Grey Delisle. The only negative of this game, is the controversial cliffhanger ending which has yet to be resolved. I can only hope that when the PS5 comes out we get it.
