Before you play the Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves game, you will definitely want to know these simple but useful tips and tricks. If you have any tips feel free to share with us!
Things to Know Before Playing
- In the "Dead Men Tell No Tales" area, you can be a pirate! Once you get about halfway through the area's missions you'll unlock a Pirate Ship that you can use, and you get obscene amounts of money from pirateering so it's recommended to abuse it if you're hurting for cash.
- There's 3 "special" attacks you can use as Sly: Spin, Push and Jump, which are activated by pushing the triangle button and hitting Square, Circle and X respectively. The order of good-ness is probably Jump (level 2 and 3 Jump electrocutes enemies )>Spin>Push, so that's probably the order that you should buy the upgrades for them in.
- Ignore the stuff about the optimizer goggles. When the game first game out Sucker Punch included 3-D glasses (to go with the comic book aesthetic of the series) with the game which you could use for some missions, and that was the in-game reasoning for it. The glasses obviously aren't present in the Sly Collection.
- Fun Fact: as the Guru, when you're possessing an enemy, you can get them to attack with Square. It serves no purpose whatsoever (well, it does hurt enemies, but Guru missions are hardly focused on combat), but it's kind of a cool pseudo-Easter Egg.
