"Getting inside the place would require precision, creativity, and moreover, it would take an army of world-class thieves. Finding and bringing together that much talent won't be easy, but to get inside the Cooper Vault and collect my inheritance, I was willing to pay the price."
Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves
Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves was a 2005 video game developed by Sucker Punch Productions and published by Sony Computer Entertainment. It was released on 26 September 2005 in North America and 18 November 2005 in Europe for the PlayStation 2.
Set one year after the events of Sly 2: Band of Thieves, Honor Among Thieves follows Sly Cooper as he assembles a gang of thieves in order to gain access to the Cooper Vault, a location containing his ancestors' accumulated wealth.
The game begins with Sly Cooper making his way onto Kaine Island, the location of the Cooper Vault. With help from each of the members of the Cooper Gang, Sly made it through the island fortress and to the entrance of the Vault. Just as he was about to open it, he was interrupted by Dr. M, the owner of the island. Sly was forced to flee with Bentley from M's oncoming attacks. As they were nearing the ship where the rest of the Cooper Gang was waiting, Bentley was attacked by of of M's mutants. Sly distracted the mutants while Bentley escaped. He himself was then grabbed by the beast. In his seemingly final moments, Sly remembered the entirety of the events that had brought him there.
Sly first recalled his meeting with Jim McSweeney, one of his father's old friends. McSweeney had told him about the Cooper Vault and the map that would lead him to Kaine Island. Upon arriving however, Sly found the island to be a maximum security fortress created by Dr. M, who had already spent decades trying to open the Vault. It was then that Sly realized that he would need a group of specialists - a gang of master thieves- to help him get inside and collect his inheritance.
First, Sly and Bentley traveled to Venice to find Murray who had left because of the guilt he faced with Bentley's paralysis. Sly found Murray in the city and explained to him that Bentley did not blame him, but Murray replied that he had moved on already, becoming a student to the Guru, who had tasked him with going to Venice and making "the black water run pure". The black water was tar-polluted water caused by the local mob boss Octavio. Sly and Bentley assisted Murray in his mission by thwarting Octavio's operation. During the final phase however, Bentley is injured by the mobster. Murray witnesses this and attacks Octavio in a fit of rage, defeating him. Octavio is arrested by Carmelita Fox and Murray rejoins the Cooper Gang.
As all these thoughts are flashing through his mind, Sly finds himself back in reality - staring straight into the maw of the mutant.
