Sly Cooper may not be as popular as Jak and Ratchet, but his PlayStation 3 trilogy is the perfect candidate for an HD makeover. The Sly Collection packages three of Sony's very best 3D platformers into one budget title. Throw in trophies and move support and you have a must-own collection for anybody who loves a good crime caper!

No matter whether you've played through these games or not, The Sly Collection is definitely a game worth owning. I love that all three games are on one small disc and the trophy support gives players a reason to sneak through the games again. And best of all, Sony is using this compilation as a way to announce the greatest possible announcement -- Sly 4! With its upgraded HD graphics and low price tag, nobody is going to overshadow Sly Cooper this time around.

Really, I couldn’t ask for more from the Sly Collection. The visuals stand up just fine in today’s hi-def society and the gameplay is just as enjoyable as it was the day I opened the original Thievius Racoonus back in 2002. Happily, once all three games have been finished, Sucker Puch let the cat out of the bag that a fourth entry will finally see the light of day; the first new Sly tale since 2005. Unless you are one of those gamers who’s stuck in a single genre *cough* FPS *cough*, not willing to play anything outside your comfort zone, the Sly Collection is easily a ‘must have’ for your library.

Whether you've only heard about Sly Cooper for the first time, or played the game extensively already before, there's no reason to not get this platform fun fest.

On this point in particular, I must close by saying that The Sly Trilogy is exactly what PS3 needed right now. Three of the PS2′s forgotten classics that deserve to be played by anyone with even a small interest in platformers, Sly and friends deserve the success they never received last time around. These games still feel fresh and, because they do something genuinely different inside the genre, I whole-heartedly recommend them to PS3 owners looking for something to play as 2011 begins.

Whether you have or haven’t played the Sly Copper games, you owe it to yourself to pick up The Sly Collection for $39.99. This is one of those deals that trumps anything retailers can offer during the holiday season. Three full fledge titles offering more than 30 hours of combined gameplay, HD visuals, 3D support, PlayStation Move minigames and a chance to secure 3 platinum trophies is more than enough reason to rush to your local retailer to pick up your copy. Whether old, young or in between, The Sly Collection is something you will be playing for quite some time.

But ultimately you won't need to worry too much about any of that stuff. Why should you? You've got three of the most endearing platformers ever created to pick over instead, and an unlockable teaser trailer hinting that a fourth instalment is on the way. Sly 4, finally! That's something to think about. However that turns out – and I'm guessing DLC, a co-op campaign, and a nice persistent XP system – Sucker Punch has already ensured it will have a lot to live up to.

Worth Playing
The Sly Collection is proof once more that great games are truly timeless, and upgrading the visuals not only doesn't ruin the experience, but it absolutely enhances it. Fans who played the original games must pick up this release, and folks who may have wondered what all the fuss was about back in the day should take this opportunity to check it out for themselves. Even those who aren't really interested should give it a go because you're getting an amazing collection of games for a ridiculously low price of $40. All that's left to do is count down the days until the Team Ico Collection hits, and we get to do this all over again.

Sucker Punch’s Sly series is witty, irreverent, intelligent and polished. And Sanzaru’s elbow grease has let us roll up our sleeves, grab our controllers, and once again enjoy the thrill and hilarity of gaming done well. If you didn’t catch it the first time, maybe the Sly Trilogy might just be a package that steals your heart.

Should you buy The Sly Collection? Yes, absolutely. Even if you've already played all three games (and I've found that most people seem to have played one of the games and missed the other two), this is a series worth revisiting. You get to see the history of Sucker Punch as a developer, you get to play some of the best platformers of last generation, and you get one of the greatest bargains in video games since The Orange Box.

For those who no longer have their PS2 versions, or for those who have never played these games, The Sly Collection is a great addition to your library. The games remain eminently playable to this day, and are great for both kids and adults. At the nice price of $40, you really can't go wrong.

The Sly Collection' reminds me how special and unique the Sly series was and is compared to everything else on the market. The question if you should pick up 'The Sly Collection' can be answered with an unshakeable yes! Sly has never looked better and this trilogy is stacked with content that will please new and old fans of this platforming classic.

Drie evergreens voor een zachte prijs! Alleen de zeven lezers die de Sly-trilogie op PlayStation 2 uitspeelden hebben een excuus om dit koopje aan zich voorbij te laten gaan.

For three excellent platformers, The Sly Collection is truly a great deal. While not perfect masterpieces, these games comprise a collective experience that gamers shouldn't miss. Fans will love the updated visuals, which look crisp, colorful, and completely at home on the high-definition PS3, but they may not find much new content to enjoy. Players coming to the series for the first time can't go wrong.

Though some cutscenes still use their original assets, making for grainy, pixelated graphics and distorted sound, and you can't switch between series games without completely exiting from the disc, The Sly Collection continues to exhibit why good, older generation titles do well to bundle together in quality remastered editions. Obviously this isn't a trend every series could or should follow, but if film can do it for every new format, there's no reason successful games need to stay cemented in inferior resolutions.
