Autistic Game Critic Episode #4 - Sly Cooper Games

bobbythebrony
Hey people and welcome to Autistic Game Critic where we will look at all four Sly Cooper games. Sly Cooper is a series of stealth games based on the Cooper Gang. The world is populated by anthropomorphic animals and has dark moments of violence so let's look at the first game.

Sly Cooper and the Thievious Raccoonus - This game is far different than the other games. Some examples are that you die if hit once by an enemy unless you have a lucky charm. It is also not open world, and you have to collect all the clue bottles and open the safes. You cant ignore them like later games. Also the boss battles are relatively easy, even the final boss Clockwerk.

In the game, you mostly control Sly Cooper, an 18 year old master raccoon thief who is set out to take out the Fiendish Five, restore the family book, and avenge the death of his parents.

The Fiendish Five consists of - Sir Raleigh the Frog, Muggshot, Mz. Ruby, Panda King, and Clockwerk

Sly 2: Band of Thieves - The second game is different than the first. It is open world and you dont have to open the safes. Also the characters have evolved. Murray is now a big, strong tough guy, and Bentley is now out of his shell and doing field work.

In this game, the gang has to take out the Klaww Gang to recover Clockwerk's body parts betore he can be revived. Also significant is Bentley's paralysis at the game's end.

The Klaww Gang consists of - Dimitri Lousteau, Rajan, Contessa, Jean Bison, Arpeggio, and Constable Neyla.

Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves - The third one happens to be my favorite. This game you have to recruit new members and defeat criminals all over the world. The goal is to infiltrate the Cooper Family Vault and claim his inheritance before the main villain can steal it for himself. Also in this game are two former enemies that are now allies. It also is the darkest game, by far.

Recruits - Murray, The Guru, Penelope, Panda King, and Dimitri Lousteau

Villains - Don Octavio, Mask of Dark Earth, Black Baron, General Tsao, Captain LeFwee, and Dr. M.

Sly 4: Thieves in Time - Honestly the fourth game is my least favorite and I think it could've been better. The gang has to travel through time, save Sly's ancestors and stop Cooper history from being erased. There isnt really much to say but one thing I like are the Clockwerk easter eggs.

Ancestors - Rioichi Cooper, Tennessee Kid Cooper, Bob Cooper, Sir Galleth Cooper, and Salim Al Kupar.

Villains - El Jefe, Toothpick, Grizz, Penelope, Ms. Decibel, and Cyrille Le Paradox.

Well there you have it, the Sly Cooper Series. Probably one of the best Playstation franchises in history. Before I leave I wanna say one more thing: I love Sly and Carmelita's relationship. Starting from Cop and Robber to mutual respect, to romantic to true love. She is now not only a cop but an ally to the gang. It's precious.

As of today, Sly Cooper is lost in ancient Egypt. Also I cant wait for the 2016 movie adaption of the first game.

Well this is bobbythebrony saying: Til I see you again, watch your step.
