a stand out from the ps2 era cartoonish platformers for its more stealth focus i quite like (i say as i still haven't finished the other 2 and have a save file from 2 that's quite deep into the game but i got bored)

Sly COOPER? What's so exciting about a game where you make and repair casks and barrels?
Sly RACOON though? That game was pretty good. (is my Englishness showing yet)?

By far one of my favorite gaming franchises, the first Sly Cooper still remains a game I can go back to and enjoy the hell out of any time. They took the Crash Bandicoot style of platformers, made the levels a tiny bit more open and added some stealth elements to make it super unique. It's still fun as hell, and it's sad that Sony's neglected this series over the years.

This is one of the most frustrating platformers I've ever played. On one had the game's presentation oozes personality across the board from the artstyle, characters, locations; for a PS2 era game it's really impressive how good it looks by today's standards. On the other hand you have a collectathon platformer mixed with: one-hit kill system, rage inducing minigames, & floaty controls in game with many moments requiring precise input.

I'm really glad this game did well enough to get sequels, because I like those sequels a lot more than this game.

Havent played this since I was a kid so it was a real blast of nostalgia. Great platformer that incorporates stealth into things, really fun game. My one complaint would be the mini game levels, I didnt enjoy them.
