These days, playing Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus feels somewhat trite and frustrating. As a platformer, it lacks much of the delight of other titles, especially later entries of the same genre and even the same series. Its visuals are really something, however, with the world of Sly being appealing and exciting, showing a Paris in cartoon dark blue and pin-pricked with gold that remains delightful. It’s a shame that this game should hit the scene three months before Wind Waker, which it easily beats both aesthetically and environmentally but not at its characters and certainly not at fun.
