5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic vibes for a retro gamer November 19, 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 4| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
This is a great game. I started gaming during the playstation one era. I feel a disconnect with today's modern games like call of duty and battlefield. New games are overwhelming with their mechanics. Basically I'm an old geezer that that doesn't like to go through lengthy tutorials just to start a game. Knack has the nostalgic feel of games that I grew up playing such as Spyro and Crash Bandicoot. The battle system while simplistic is really rewarding when you figure out how to not die. You start with the same moves that you end with so skill and learning enemy patterns is very important. Overall, this is a great game. It is a plus that the kids love it. There are not enough family friendly games these days.

Platform for Display:PlayStation 4|Edition:Standard
I bought this game as part of a Launch Day bundle, and while waiting for launch I grew worried because many of the online reviews for the game were negative. Most of those negative reviews cited difficulty and repetitiveness.

I have to say however that I love this game. It is a throwback to the Crash Bandicoot style of gameplay. So yes, it can be difficult if you are not careful; but this isn't a game for mere smashing and grabbing. Once the simple mechanics of fighting are mastered, the game becomes very easy to play while at the same time remaining challenging. I'll explain. Most battles require tactical consideration, a careful approach. If you go into an engagement thinking that you are just going to smash some buttons, hop around, and storm through your opponents--you are mistaken. It's easy to be 1-shot or 2-shot by many of the opponents, and when you are facing 2, 3, 4, or more opponents like this...yes, you might die a lot. Until you learn the flow of the fighting and what Knack is capable of doing AND to approach each engagement with a plan. Once you get in the habit of doing these things, the combat is often quite easy as long as you stay focused on what you are doing. (I'm playing on Normal difficulty.)

As for repetitiveness...well, I'm about halfway through, after playing all weekend after launch. And it's not exactly repetitive. The maps are quite linear; you keep running into sets of opponents most steps from A to Z; and, yes, you have to kill them. Like many games. However, there is great variety in your opponents, and each has a particular way of fighting against you. So although the combat and mapping might make the game seem repetitive, it's actually not tediously repetitive because maps and opponents keep changing.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm glad I picked this up! November 15, 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 4| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I don't know why this game received all of the bad reviews from critics but let me say this game is pretty awesome. Beautiful graphics and simple gameplay that you can get addicted to within a matter of seconds. If you like the Ratchet and Clank or Jak and Daxter games, you will definitely like this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Knack Is Your Standard Brawler Platformer November 15, 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 4| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Knack is your standard beat-em-up brawling platformer. It feels a little like Crash Bandicoot, but falls short of its potential greatness. I feel that the main character has a low likability, and the game developers could had picked a better voice actor. Another flaw with this game is that once you break something, the particles just disappear. Over all the game play is fun, but lacks a replay value.

3.0 out of 5 stars So far, it's pretty underrated. November 15, 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 4|Edition:Standard
I don't understand all the hate that seems to be going around for this game. It's not going to change the gaming landscape, or be anyone's all-time favorite game.. But for what it is worth, it's a pretty and fun launch game for the newest Playstation. I have played a few hours into it, but I doubt that my opinion will change much from now until I complete it.

The game controls well, looks great, and actually provides a challenge (which is everyone's most surprising aspect). Enemies can take you out in just a couple hits if you don't watch yourself, so the dodge function is an ABSOLUTE must. Your size and power grows as you obtain relics throughout the stages, and this also serves as your health. The bigger knack gets, the larger his health bar becomes. Although that doesn't really seem to matter much since when you get bigger, so do the enemies. Then those larger foes are able to once again take you down in one to two hits.

Like I said, I doubt that this game will change the world. It may go down in history as being a Heavenly Sword level success as far as acclaim and memory is concerned. it's worth playing, if only to tide you over until more substantial games are released.

Keep in mind that if I could give it 3.5 stars, I would. I don't care for review scores, but that sounds about right as far as where I would place it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Launch title for the PS4 November 11, 2013
By ceLeon
Platform for Display:PlayStation 4| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
UPDATE:
I beat the game over the weekend and without spoiling anything I think it turned out to be a great, sometimes frustrating, experience. In some places I felt like I was cheated being killed with one hit and that's where co-op game will help you a lot while playing it. If the second player dies, you don't have to go back to a previous checkpoint. When I was playing on my own I died so many, many times and when I found out how much I had to play again I wasn't happy because I had already used my power ups.

Another thing you should do is get the mobile app (I got it for iPhone) so it can help you get some of the pieces for gadgets to use during the game, it's your typical 'Bejeweled'- style game but if it helps get those gadgets faster, sounds good to me.

Yes, the story is predictable and the script is VERY cheesy, but I would not rate this game as bad, on the contrary I stand by my first review that it's a 'Great Launch title for the PS4'

ORIGINAL:
I wasn't really impressed when they first announced this game a few months ago. I definitely changed my mind!
As it has already been showed in several presentations before, the game style is very similar to what you would expect from games like Crash Bandicoot and maybe it's just me but I got a feeling it was also similar to Banjo Kazzoie, bringing a lot of really fun memories from a while ago.
My friend and I spent a couple of hours dedicated to the co-op mode only. It was fun, challenging while easy to get into it too. There are a few games that include a good co-op mode in the same screen lately. Most new titles focus more on the online experience but forget that some games were meant to be played with a friend, in the same room.
