The Sly Collection
The Sly Collection (titled The Sly Trilogy in PAL regions and Sly Cooper Collection in Asia) is a remastered port of the first three-game games in the series - Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, Sly 2: Band of Thieves and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, released for the PlayStation 3 on a single Blu-ray Disc as a Classics HD title. The games were ported by Sanzaru Games and includes a set of mini-games.
Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus (known as Sly Raccoon in Europe and Australia) was created by Sucker Punch Productions and released on the PlayStation 2 in 2002. The game focuses on master thief Sly Cooper and his gang, Bentley the Turtle and Murray the Hippo, as they seek out the Fiendish Five to recover his family's "Thievius Raccoonus", a book with the accumulation of all of Sly's ancestors' thieving moves. The game was praised for using a variation on cel-shading rendering, which is used to create a film noir feel, while still rendered as a hand-drawn animated movie, though criticized for being too short.
Sly 2: Band of Thieves was the sequel to the game Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus and was released in 2004 for PlayStation 2. The game received critical acclaim and is often considered to be one of the greatest PlayStation 2 games of all time. The game has a variety of changes, particularly in level design. The ultimate goal is to acquire Clockwerk parts, one or more of which can be found per world. Sly 2 features a health meter for characters such as Sly, Bentley and Murray, replacing the "charm system" of the first game. Other changes include missions where the player controls Bentley or Murray, who have their own unique skills and are able to do much more than in the previous game.
Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves was released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2. It is the third game in the Sly Cooper franchise. Sly 3 has optional 3-D stages, and comes with a pair of 3-D glasses inside the manual. The game received generally positive reviews from the gaming press. New variations in the game include additional playable characters besides those of Sly, Murray and Bentley. An offline multiplayer mode is included, along with challenges and extra movies unlocked for specific game completion percentages. The multiplayer games are: Cops and Robbers, Hackathon, Bi-Plane Duel, and Galleon Duel. Challenges are missions that are set with specific standards, along with a Treasure Hunt mission for each world attained at the end of the game.
Only options that deviate from the default configuration to ensure best performance are listed below. The full list of default options is available here.
|Framelimit||60||Game speed is tied to 60FPS so going above it will cause the game to run too fast.|
|PPU LLVM accurate vector NaNs||On||If "PPU Non-JavaMode Fixup" is disabled, the game becomes prone to black screen issues.|
Sly 1 - Some minor sound effects are missing and the game may crash upon beating the Crocodile boss or the Final boss when you unlock a trophy. Upon beating the boss again this will not happen. (Need to check if this still occurs)
Sly 2 and 3 -
The game disables auto-save and you can't save your progress because "data may be corrupted". You can only save your progress with empty slots. These games will say that, but it will actually auto save and save your progress regardless.

Custom Icon Art by Jjw410
Custom replacement icon art by user Jjw410. Can be switched with original icon by renaming the image "ICON0.PNG" and replacing the file of the same name in the game's "PS3_GAME" directory (it is recommended to retain the original art for safety). The Author has removed the background and has given the logo a subtle white glow to match that of the Jak Trilogy's icon.
