Master thief Sly Cooper returns to PlayStation 2 for another big heist, in this sequel to Sucker Punch's 2002 stealth-action platformer. Joined by his lifelong friends Bentley, the turtle communications specialist, and Murray, the hippopotamus getaway driver, the sneaky, cel-shaded raccoon sets his sights on what could be his biggest prize yet: freedom from the villainous Clockwerk, his family's greatest nemesis.
Though it was believed that Clockwerk, the mechanical sworn enemy of the Cooper clan, had been destroyed in Sly's first PS2 adventure, police now report that they have discovered the remains of the robot and begun to excavate. Believing that even the slightest chance that the mechanical monster might be revived is too great a risk, Sly, Bentley, and Murray decide to find and steal the most important components of the broken robot, which, as it turns out, may have been hidden away in secret, well guarded locations around the globe.
The "Band of Thieves" travels to freely explorable areas in France, India, Canada, and many other international hot spots, to embark on tricky missions that require skill and reward creative problem solving. Sly is once again armed with his versatile, hooked cane, as well as an improved "binocucom," spy cameras, parachutes, and other equipment that just might save his tail when trouble arises unexpectedly. Yet Sly's greatest assets, by far, are his friends, and Bentley and Murray play a bigger role than ever in this second adventure. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
