Following the success of the worldwide million-seller Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, Sony Computer Entertainment America has shipped Sly 2: Band of Thieves for the PlayStation 2. "We are thrilled to have this title as part of this year's premier PlayStation 2 holiday lineup" said SCEA senior producer Grady Hunt.
Developed by Seattle-based developer Sucker Punch, Sly 2 brings back the animated-feature-style cel-shaded graphics from the original with some new gameplay elements. In the story, Clockwerk, Sly's robotic nemesis, is unearthed by Interpol. Noticing some parts missing, the gang travels the globe in search of the pieces to ensure that Clockwerk is never reassembled. The landscapes range from Prague and Paris to India.
Band of Thieves allows gamers to play as Sly Cooper the raccoon, Bentley the turtle, or Murray the Hippo in order to pull off some serious scores. The E-rated single-player platformer combines stealth, thievery, and combat with a new storyline. For more game information, read our full review.
