Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time review: stuck in the past

They've traded globe-trotting for time travel, but the game's structure remains the same As of the end of Sly 3, the titular raccoon had given up on a life a burglary. He's pulled back in at the start of Thieves in Time when pages begin erasing themselves from the Thievus Raccoonus, his inherited book of stealth skills. Sly reconnects with his ex-partners-in-crime, Bentley — a crafty turtle — and Murray — a brawling hippo. Determining that someone is messing up the timestream, the trio embarks on a time-hopping escapade to save the Cooper family line. The team may have traded globe-trotting for time travel, but the game's structure remains the same: In each era, Sly and crew explore a large, open overworld area that feeds into smaller, more linear levels. Each level...

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time animated short turns back the clock

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time developer Sanzaru Games reached out to animation studio Ghostbot for the game's 2D animated cinematics, and Ghostbot created an animated short that was posted on the PlayStation Blog today. Ghostbot co-founder and director Alan Lau, who called himself "a big fan of the original [Sly Cooper] games," discussed the project in the article. "We wanted to make sure our addition to Sly's journey respected the fun and charm of the original games. At the same time, we wanted to push the quality of the art and animation to the next level as well as bring the audience something they hadn't seen before," he said. According to Lau, Ghostbot took pains to ensure that the look of the 2D animation "integrated with what Sanzaru was doing in 3D" in the game, saying, "We...
