Sly Cooper and the Thievious Raccoonus

Sly Cooper is the story of a raccoon burglar. The game is played out in a comic book type cell shaded paradise. Well it is not exactly paradise but it sure looks great. Jumping from ledge to ledge dodging the bad guys and sneaking around are just more fun when you are playing a raccoon. The puzzles in this platform game range from the ridiculously easy to the absurdly hard. There was one puzzle where you had to jump and duck in the right order at the right time, and let me tell you I am ashamed of the fact that it took me a couple of very frustrating hours to get past that. The game is very fast and it seems like it end way too soon. I would even have to go so far as to say that I like this title better than Mario as far as platform games go. I am positive that we will see Sly Cooper again fairly soon, and when we do I will be among the very first to buy it.
