STORYLINE
Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus is a vibrantly animated caper starring the charming and wry, charismatic thief, Sly Cooper. Born into a family of the world's greatest thieves, Sly is given, on his eighth birthday, the Thievius Raccoonus, a family heirloom that is passed down from generation to generation containing all of their best-kept secrets and thieving techniques around. Later that evening, a gang of ruthless villains broke into his harmonious home. As Sly watched, the intruders overpowered his father, as they stole the Thievius Raccoonus splitting it five ways and each taking a piece of this legacy with them. Ten years later, Sly is out to steal the Thievius Raccoonus back and reclaim what is rightfully his. He enlists the help of his gadget genius pal Bentley, and his big eager friend Murray, and the trio embark on a quest to restore honor to his family's name.
