    The raccoon rascal is back in his riskiest adventure yet - and this time he'll need the help of a full criminal crew to craft his crimes.

    The cuddly kleptomaniac returns to put the Thievius Raccoonus skills he picked up in the previous hit game Sly Raccoon to good use. Like a cartoon-styled Sam Fisher, Sly skitters up drainpipes, creeps over rooftops and tip-toes past guards in order to recover his booty. This time he's after the dormant bits and pieces of his old nemesis Clockwerk, which have been snatched for no-doubt dastardly purposes.

    In Band of Thieves, Sly faces his biggest challenge ever. This time around, exploration and free-roaming environments form a major part of the game. Far from causing Sly a problem, this gives you even more opportunities to try out your old thieving skills and a few new ones to boot, including the ability to pickpocket. Explore to find hidden cash caches, and make life hell for the wandering security guards and violent thugs that populate the many environments you'll encounter on Sly's quest.

    But don't lose sight of your mission to snatch Clockwerk's parts from high security locations. Like the rest of the game, Sly 2's heists are a darn sight bigger than before. They're so big, in fact, that Sly won't be able to pull them off alone. You're going to need some help.

    Thankfully, Sly's buddies - Bentley the Tortoise and Murray the Hippo - return, and this time around they're fully playable members of the team. Each member of the Raccoon Pack is a specialist in their particular field of larcenous behaviour. Sly is obviously the stealthy cat(?) burglar of the group, whereas Bentley prefers things a lot noisier and messier as the team's demolitions expert. Murray is now "The Murray", a powerful brawler dressed up in a unique wrestling costume, who chooses to refer to himself in the third person.

    Switch between the three characters and use their individual skills to ensure that your complex crime capers play out like clockwork. If all goes to plan, Clockwerk's remains will soon be safe in your grasp.
