Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is the fourth entry in the beloved Sly Cooper franchise, which sees players taking on the role of a sly fox who also happens to be a thief. Its stealth-based predecessors served as influences in many newer stealth titles, and the new game is expected to be just as stealthy when it comes out on both the PS3 and the PS Vita.

The Vita version, while not quite at the level of the PS3 in terms of graphics, is very good-looking and an impressive piece of work. For the first time, it felt like there was very little distinction between playing on a home console or on a handheld. That's incredible. I will say that, all things being equal, I preferred playing on PlayStation 3, mostly because I'd rather play on a 46-inch HDTV than a small handheld screen. Also, some of the later boss battles were easier to conquer on PS3 just because the controller is easier to handle. Still, the fact that I'm willing to review the home console and handheld version of a game in the same review should say an awful lot.

Sanzaru Games did its homework with the Sly series, and the result is a sequel that handily does justice to Sucker Punch Productions' originals. It doesn’t have to change the face of platforming as we know it to be a thoroughly delightful trip through time, with gameplay that will enchant you no matter your age. If you’re a fan of the classic PS2 platformers, consider the budget-priced Thieves in Time a steal.

Sly Cooper: Thieves is Time is a fantastic addition to the series and a great entry point for newcomers. Most of my gripes are minor, but the aggressive load times present the biggest detriment to the game, and the need for a PS Vita might irritate anyone who wants to collect everything these time periods have to offer. The rest is just a few hiccups in history, but they shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the latest chapter in the Cooper story.

Minor annoyances aside, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time is one of the most enjoyable gaming experiences that I have had in a long, long time. It has its flaws, but what game doesn’t? Sanzaru Games has done a phenomenal job at crafting a new and enjoyable adventure for the Sly that maintains everything that made the past entries great. The discounted price and the cross platform capabilities of the game only work to strengthen the experience. Definitely check this one out if you want to be reminded just how fun games can be.

Less compelling are the narrative twists that accompany them. While every ancestor Sly and the gang saves (and every boss baddie they put down) ultimately serves to restore the Thievius Raccoonus, the implications through time of their success or failure aren't emphasized enough. I felt some lack of cinematic urgency until the main villain behind it all finally reared its head – shortly after a late-game curve-ball plot twist that, as a longtime series fan, I just couldn't get behind. But, things improve dramatically from there. Thieves in Time's last act is arguably the best in the series, for reasons I won't spoil here. Suffice it to say, the game gets its storytelling act together before all is said and done, and its plot becomes one of the more enjoyable entries in Sly
