Review: Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time will steal your heart (PS3)

Sly Cooper Thieves in Time review
Sly Cooper Thieves in Time review

It's been ages since we've had a new Sly Cooper adventure in the fray, and with Sucker Punch toiling away on what will eventually be the next Infamous, we were wondering for quite some time whether the master thief would be making a return. But Sony eased our tension a while back by announcing Thieves In Time, a new chapter in the series that would be developed by Sanzaru Games – the same team behind the previously released Sly Collection. So, do these newbies have what it takes to fill Sucker Punch's shoes? Yep...and then some.

The story revolves around Sly and his team developing the ability to travel through time – a nice change of pace from globetrotting and dealing with master criminals. Along the way, they find a number of Cooper's ancestors in trouble, helping them out while also battling a mysterious master criminal who's trying to alter historic events in their favor. It's up to Sly to help his family, along with Bentley (the brains) and Murray (the brawn) to stop the mastermind before history is, well, history.
