Sly 2 is an open-world mission-based jumping-shooting-brawling-bombing-caning-platformer game by Sucker Punch Studios, creators of the overlooked N64 classic Rocket! Robot On Wheels as well as critically acclaimed PS3 title InFamous.

Meet the Gang

Sly is the thief of the group, the sneaky guy who does all of the platforming and reconnaissance. His missions involve acts of thievery such as pickpocketing and ransacking. When playing him, the font color will be blue.

Bentley is the brains of the gang, the man who finds every bit of information necessary to pull off the heists. Bentley's tasks lean towards blowing stuff up, be it internally by hacking or externally via bomb. When playing him, the font color will be green.

The Murray is the brawn of the outfit, willing to brute force through any problem. The majority of his jobs usually involve breaking someone or something, somewhere, in some way, usually with his fists (that are sometimes on fire). When playing him, the font color will be pink.

Why does the font color keep changing?!
Depending on what character I'm controlling I change the font color. This is purely aesthetic and isn't some haphazard attempt at inserting words into the characters' mouths. Don't read too much into the text, just the text itself.
