Again, no spoilers, please.
Of course I mean Thieves in Time, but I'll always call it Sly 4, since I've got the first 3. The story's already got me hooked, and the controls are pretty much the same as in Sly 2 and 3, which is certainly a plus for me. Gameplay seems to flow rather well, and stray coins are a bit less of a hassle to collect. First impressions are good!
The characters have of course been completely re-designed for the PS3. I'd personally like a lot more texture on Sly and Murray, but it's still a change for the better, and Murray's model looks like it has some delicious maw-shot potential =9 Carmalita was sexy in previous games, but in Sly 4, she is SMOKING HOT! Though I must say, in 2D cutscenes, Sly's face looks a little... off....
I really like Bentley's ability to hover for a while rather than giving quick bursts with his jetpack like in Sly 3. I do like the change of tapping the button on ledges rather than holding it, but that's still going to take some getting used to. It also seems much easier to grab ledges while jumping or falling than on previous games. Combat feels a bit different, too, and that's going to take some getting used to. Shouldn't take long though since the controls are the same. Hacking with Bentley looks like it's going to be more fun as well.
