Since I'm in UK and Sly 4 release was almost 2 months away I decided to import my copy from videogamesplus.ca and was quite surprised to see my copy delivered today so if you can't wait I would defo recommend importing from them.

I just completed the first episode of the game and so far it's great but there are some disappointments eg Murray sections are boring, Slys movement doesn't feel as light and responsive as before and there is too much hand holding like indicator constantly popping up to show you the way to next objectives etc but overall it's great and the graphics are simply beautiful.

I'm afraid to bet on this one because I know it's not cracking 7.5, but from there downwards it's anyone's guess.

We are keeping the marketing strategy of Sly 4 in theme with the game by trying to stealthily release the game without anyone noticing

Sad but so true, even if GS, there seems to be no hype for this game, that until this thread one day before the game releases.

Was trying to make it few weeks before release but i got distracted by other games and Ni No Kuni that i remembered to make it today lol

Yeah, I figured you would make it eventually, if you hadn't posted this now, I was thinking of making a thread about it. Can't wait to play this tomorrow, will have to put Fire Emblem in the backlog.

How in the heck do I hear of this being released tomorrow first today?
#62 Posted by TheEpicGoat (2006 posts) -

Sly from a developer who has made no good games?

This should be good.

#63 Posted by Lionheart08 (15627 posts) -

The lack of buzz around this is kind of bad.

#64 Posted by layton2012 (3489 posts) -
It's depressing to me, knowing this game will most likely do bad commercially, and we won't know until reviews come out if it is deserving of failure. Man, I hope it's good.

Game informer gave Sly a 9/10, reassuring but then again it's game informer..

Yup they just gave it a 9/10

Hopefully it sells well....Sony has a horrible marketing team and word of mouth will probably be sparse, would be a shame to since the game looks pretty good.

Yes, I think it will do fairly decent critically 7-9/10 reviews, but they real concern is it selling, I have seen 0 marketing, not even any banner ads on sites, I hope it does well because rumor is it has a cliffhanger ending, so I think Sanzaru is hoping to make Sly 5.

With embargoed stuff do Gamespot post reviews at about midnight? Not sure if I should wait for it or go to bed.

The only time GS is right on the dot like that is if the game is huge. That doesn't apply to Sly, so just go to bed if you're tired.

Sucker Punch is making this correct? Then I'm interested! Loved Infamous and still need to get around to playing Infamous 2.

Sanzaru Games are the devs behind Sly 4. Sucker Punch isn't involved outside of voicing their approval.

Nope, Sucker Punch probably working on a PS4 game by now.. Sly 4 is made by Sanzaru Games as Slashkice as mentioned earlier. Sanzaru Games were the devs that brought us Sly collection to the PS3 and by playing the demo for Sly 4 i got to say they have done a great job with it.

I honestly believe this games potential commercial failure will rest with Sony( maybe Sanzaru?) because if lack of marketing, even PSASBR had decent marketing, this game marketing is practically nonexistent.

Game Informer gave it a 9/10?

Wow, this could possibly be 9.5 or 10 on GS...

Regardless, AAAE at least confirmed.

Received a B+ from gamingage(never heard if them before) and 6.5 from playstation lifestyle, so I'm guessing a 6.5-7.5 on GS.
