Sly 2: Band of Thieves
Release: September 14, 2004
Developer: Sucker Punch Productions
Platform: PlayStation 2
Synopsis: Sly 2: Band of Thieves marked a major shift in gameplay style from Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus. The game introduced a health bar system instead of the 1-hit-kill system in the first game, and you can now play as the other members in the Cooper Gang, Bentley and Murray.
In Sly 2, the pieces of the defeated Clockwerk have been shipped to a museum in Egypt, only to be stolen by the Klaww Gang. Each member has a different piece of the monstrosity, and its up to the Cooper Gang to hunt down each member of the Klaww Gang and steal back the pieces to Clockwerk so they can be destroyed. However, an unexpected foe just might foil their best-laid plans.
