Hi Sly Cooper Fans! As you all probably know, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time was released about a month ago. I have played through the game, and I really enjoyed it. Instead of being made by the previous owners, Sucker Punch Productions, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is created by Sanzaru Games. Here is the plot for the game:
Sly and the gang have disbanded. Sly is faking amnesia to create a relationship with Inspector Carmelita Fox, Murray is the champion in the demolition derby, and Bentley works on creating a time machine with his girlfriend Penelope. But Penelope disappears, and Bentley discovers that pages from the Thievius Raccoonus, the Cooper Family handbook, are beginning to disappear. Bentley gets the gang back together so they can travel through time, and try to fix Cooper history.
The five time periods that the gang visit are Feudal Japan, the Wild West, Prehistoric Times, Medieval England, and Ancient Arabia. There is also a Paris prologue and epilogue. In each time period, a Cooper ancestor is visited. The five cooper ancestors visited are Rioichi Cooper, Tennessee “Kid” Cooper, “Bob” Cooper, Sir Galleth Cooper, and Salim al Kupar, respectively.
I think that the storyline is really great, and I also liked that there are multiple pop culture references. The only big problem that I had with the game was that it was really slow when loading. I also liked the ancestors that Sanzaru picked, although I wish that there had been some more. Speaking of there being more ancestors, there is a rumor that Slytunkhamen Cooper II was supposed to be in this game, but Sanzaru removed him. Are you wondering why? Read below, and you’ll learn why.
SPOILER ALERT!!!! END OF SC:TiT TOLD!!!!!
As you can see in the picture on the right, Sly is stuck in Ancient Egypt. Allow me to explain why.
The villain of the game, Le Paradox, caused a black hole to erupt in his blimp. Sly told the rest of the gang to leave, but Sly stayed so he could defeat the boss. Sly began by fighting with him inside the blimp, but was forced to exit and fight on the edge of the front of the blimp. Sly defeated Le Paradox, and Le Paradox was hanging onto the blimp for his life. Sly, out of kindness, helped Le Paradox up. Le Paradox attacked Sly, took his paraglider, and began to float off of the blimp. A plane ran into Le Paradox, he dropped the paraglider, and fell into the ocean. He was later found and imprisoned. Sly disappeared. After gaining all of the trophies in the game, a cinematic plays, and shows Sly in Ancient Egypt.
SLY 5?!?!? 😉
