The Bad:

"Easy difficulty diminishes the fun of thieving."

I thought Tom Mc Shea liked easy difficulties :|

i kind of knew the game would be too easy because Game Informer gave it a 9/10.. higher scores on GI mean the games were too easy for them.

anyways looking forward to play it assuming amazon ships it

I would like to get this game, yet I don't feel like the urge of getting it yet, so I probably pick it up in the summer. I glad it doing good through.

You probably should have expected it before the GI review, because overall the series is easy.:P Not that it is a big con or such through.

All the Sly games have been easy with basic combat. That's just fine with me. Long as it's pretty, stylish, stealthy fun, I'm in!

It sucks that they didn't follow the older games.

Each sequel got a more "torn and aged" manual, sh*t was pretty cash.

Seems like a by the numbers sly game. How much you'll enjoy it depends on how much you enjoyed 2 and 3... I'll grab it soon enough.

Yes, that how I thought it would be since its announcement, if loved the old ones, you'll love this one, if not this ones not going to change your mind.

Sounds fine with me. Not surprised at the score espcially after I saw who reviewed it mr. 7.5 himself.

That sums it up for me, too. I love me some Sly so I'll pick it up, although not for a little while.

Soon as I saw the score, I didnt even need to look to who reviewed it, but I did anyways....Yep, it was Tom Mcshea. In the comments he writes: "If you like 3D platformers, Buy this game you won't regret it", if your telling people this, shouldn't it be a bit higher than 7.5?

he wants to keep himself known as mr.7.5 if he gives it higher he might risk that:P

If the game was 2D, and on XBL, 9/10 confirmed.

I really hate the graphics from this game, my eyes just can't rest when watching the videos. :( In all honesty, the older games look better and hit the cartoon feel much better. Love the animated short though, those guys should have done the graphics.

Tom Mcfanboy forgot to take the price of the game into the equation. He judged it based on a 60 dollar game scale. Not surprising.

Hopefully Kevin V reviews is because he seems to be the only Gamespot editor talented enough to review such an important game. Don't hand the game off to the plenty of Xboty hacks on this site. Before this year began I predicted the reviewers would be lowballing PS3 E's to try and "balance" the lack of 360 titles but Kevin is the beacon of light to give these games the score they deserve. Hopefully he does most of them. Not that he will give everything a 9+ but at least with him you know the score is accurate.

I'm actually surprised that Sly is reviewing as well as it is so far.Thought it might bomb in the current COD climate.It looks like classic Sly gameplay and the graphics look awesome,can't wait to play it but I'll have to as I'm in the UK!!!

Sly Cooper is irrelevant, all the big 3 platfomring champions from last gen are all ruined. Jak has had no real game for so long with only one being on the PSP with barely any advertisement, that the potential customers are pretty much gone. Ratchet ran itself to the ground to make money, and lol DLC titles? Sly cooper is being handled by no-names, screwing important parts of the plot for the 3rd game, and using a much clunkier engine. not to mention had to keep the Vita version in mind. It is no wonder that in 2012 MS beat sony in games 3(maybe even 4) years straight.

Or, you know....the games werent that good? :? He's had some wildcards (Infamous 2, Skyward Sword), but really? An Xbox conspiracy? Why are cows always fighting against these nonexistant adversaries to the PS3, who they try to turn everybody into ? :?

The new Sly is awesome. Don't dog it. SanZaru did a good job. They kept it the same with graphical improvements and made it fun. Sure it wont be the biggest seller. This is a gift for long time fans though, and for anyone who loves platformers.

Its not about being a cow or a sheep.. most people are annoyed by the reviewer due to how stupid his reviews are, he always complains of how some games ae too hard for him even though they arent like ( infamous 2 and skyward sword, he didnt even use the controller correctly ) and he always complains about how some games are too easy like Sly.. what does he want exactly? not to mention he didnt even count it as a $40 game but as a $60 game as someone else mentioned.

i think thats why most people argue when Tom is the reviewer

A gift to long time fans? Screwing the plot and ending of the last game. Using a slower and clunkier engine, with less variety, and a more linear adventure of the last 2? No advertising what so ever? Rumored DLC, which removes content already from the lack of content in this game, which each sly is known for. Limited moves. and much more. It is a disgrace to Sly copper fans other then finally getting another game. But more like what Duke Nukem fans got or GT5 fans got lol.
