I loved it. It's exactly what I wanted. There hasn't been a new Sly game in 8 years, so I'm perfectly happy with them playing it safe on the first level of the game. From the videos I've seen, it looks like they're focusing on the platforming much more than Sly 3, which had extended minigame sections. I'm definitely picking it up tomorrow.
I feel bad for them, but did anyone HONESTLY expect this game to be a smash hit? At some point, these developers and publishers need to get realistic about what sells and what doesn't. While this game seemed well playing enough, it was destined to failure when they slapped the 60 dollar price tag on it instead of making it a low cost downloadable game.
There are definitely games with unnecessary violent images that may be disturbing, but I don't think its any worse than something like the UFC. I love the UFC, but I would never let a young child watch it because it is extremely violent and can really change the outlook on that violence in a young child's mind.
We have a rating system for a reason, and parents need to be proactive in their childs life by explaining to them what this media is and how they should be consuming it.
I was looking forward to this. Oh well! It didn't have a chance against Assassin's Creed III, Black Ops II, and GTA 5, which is probably the real reason why it's moving. I say this game will probably come out March of next year.
This actually looks kind of cool. I'm sure they have some staples with jak and ratchet coming, but I would really like to see some obscure ones like they're doing with Parappa. And big boss better be the final boss!
