These games any good?

If you haven't seen it, The Sly Collection is on sale right now on PSN (at least in Europe), and I'm thinking about buying it. Anyone here played it already and can give some feedback?

I think 1 and 3 are fantastic and 2 is boring as hell.

Well, its a critically acclaimed series.

For me personally; they are great third person action platformers. Stealth is a large component but its done fantastically well and is really simple to get the hang off. There is a good bit of variation and the latter two have slightly more of a non-linear design (open world type stuff).

You can see some of the Sly heritage in the Infamous series, so keep that in mind too.

This, 2 got tedious way too fast.

Only played the third one and though it was fun. I enjoyed screwing around the open areas a lot.

Don't go in expecting challenge though, It's just a fun platformer. Some of the characters and stories are very likable, so I guess that's something as well. It has a unique style to it.

They are enjoyable platformers, if a little bit too easy, which tend to get slightly repetitive.

I'm a huge fan of all the Sly games.

They are great games and the for the price as of right now it would be a sin not to get them. Sly is a platformer with stealth elements and is filled with lots of fun and charm throughout, It does get repeptitive sometimes but nothing that should put you off. Another thing all 3 of those games have very easy platinum trophies (you can get them in a single playthrough) so if your into trophies its completely worth your time.

All are amazing games. (I agree with some that 2 gets tedious but I still loved it) I also bought these games for a 2nd go around and just as good still!
