I talked at length a couple of blogs ago about what I think of Sly 3. But after finally beating the game, I thought that I would talk about the Sly Collection as a whole.
Sly 1 is still great but it has some problems because of stuff that was common in game design back then such as a lives system and poor checkpoints. But the core platforming is the best in any of the Sly games and the story was well told and interesting enough to get me through it
Sly 2 is a completely different game to the first, it introduces a ton of new mechanics and gives Bentley and Murray more of a role in the gameplay. This helps to keep things varied and they aren't just through away minigames because they are all excellently designed. Also with this game being near 3 times the length of the first game it's good thing the variation is there.
I already talked at length about Sly 3 and I still consider it the best in the series despite it only making minor improvements over Sly 2.
After playing these games I can see why people loved them on PS2 and with this collection only being $40 and every game looking fantastic in HD there is no reason why you wouldn't pick this up
