It's been quite a while since Sly Cooper's last adventure, but now he's back with his loyal band of fellow thieves in tow, and this time they're travelling through time.

The pages of the Thievius Raccoonus, the Cooper family's ancestral book, are going missing, and naturally the only way to find out what's really going on is to go back in time and cavort with Sly's thieving ancestors.

So it may have been inspired by Assassin's Creed, but it certainly looks like a fun entry in the series. And check out the video below to find out how you can get your own creations in the game.
