The Sly Trilogy Vita Receives Proper Respect From MMGN
While he isn’t the most recognizable mascot in the PlayStation stable, he’s certainly one of the most respected. Sly Cooper enjoyed a comeback in the previous generation with Thieves in Time, and a high-def collection landed on the PlayStation 3 in 2010.
Now, Sony has delivered this stellar compilation to the Vita, and critics everywhere are showing their appreciation.
Our favorite review of Sly Trilogy Vita goes to MMGN’s Nathan Misa, who makes the appropriate comparisons in the handheld world, and clearly understands the appeal of this franchise. When it comes to analyzing HD overhauls, one doesn’t approach the review in the same way, and Misa does a great job adapting.
Why We Like It:
— An excellent blending of gameplay detail and technical information. When evaluating a high-def port, there are technical elements to consider and at the same time, the critic has to see if the gameplay holds up over time. These are the main points readers will be looking for.
— Cites a comparable product that fell short and says, “not to worry.” Honestly, this is one of the reasons critics exist: The knowledgeable reviewer knows a similar product – the Jak and Daxter Trilogy – didn’t hit all the right notes, and makes it plain that the product in question does a better job.
— Perhaps above all else, it’s well balanced and fun to read. Not enough critics put time into entertaining prose, damnit.
