    Great game.......but you may run into a glitch

    Knack 2 is an excellent game. Great platforming and an improved fighting system from the first game in the series make this game fun to play. Fun until you run into glitches. You may miss a cut scene. You may not be able to enter a cut scene that requires button prompts and you'll be stuck because the game will glitch. This will then force you to reboot your PS4 and start the chapter from where you left off. It is not the worst problem, but it takes away from the experience. This game needed many patches to fix it, and sadly did not get them. I do really enjoy the game and will give it three stars, but if they make a Knack 3, Sony should give it more support than this fun but technically flawed game.

    Honest Fun

    Had the free demo installed on PS4 for over a year and finally realized that I've played through that several times. No regrets so far in my decision to finally go out and buy the full game. Excellent price for a game that's just fun to play. Not very difficult but not simple enough to take away the fun. I haven't finished the game yet, but I fell I should mention that the plot has done nothing to catch my interest so far. This is a fun action-style game that you can just pick up and play for a little bit whenever.

    Surprisingly Fun sequel

    Let's be honest, the original Knack was so monotonous and boring it was a chore to play. The sequel is surprisingly fun and Knack sports a wider range of attacks and special moves. The platforming is also well thought out. There's more auto saves along the way so you won't have to repeat the whole stage even falling into the bottomless pit. The story is simple and not too long, but it's a much better sequel and enjoyable. First Knack is still hard to play through though and one could skip that, but don't let the original deter you from checking this one out.

    If you liked the original version of Knack, you will LOVE this. It is truly couch co-op for local players and you can both play together as knack (one red and one blue) on the same screen. It seems like local co-op is so difficult to find now! There are a few parts than can be tricky for my 5 year old with timed button presses (reminds me of God of War) asking you to press x, then o, etc as they prompt you. She got the hang of it after a few rounds, but just a heads up. I would highly recommend this and I am so glad we added it to our collection!

    As someone who was excited for the original Knack I was very disappointed to find that the first game never moved beyond the basic concepts introduced in the first hour and felt very repetitive and dull up to the end of the experience. Knack II has taken the criticism levied at the first game to heart and made a host of improvements including greatly improved combat and exploration. It still won't blow anyone away with its graphics or game play but I can fully recommend this game to anyone who is interested in a family friendly platformer.

    Like the few, not afraid to admit it but I enjoyed the first back when it first released and received tons of criticism by journalist who sucked at it or games in general (typical). I beat the first in all difficulties well anything above Easy. Now this, it isnt as challenging as the first but it remains as an enjoyable platformer/brawler. I definitely recommend it. GOTY right lol. Nah but seriously, its fun and if you got a family member or friend then let them grab the second controller for double the fun.

    So Much Better than the Original

    Knack 2 is "Family Friendly" game that feels like it should have been on Nintendo 64 or Wii. Collect relics and make your monster grow larger to bash boss baddies. Dump those relics to shrink and fit through tight door frames. Like other platform style games, you will need to solve puzzles (move bricks to trigger buttons, etc.) and avoid steam vents and swinging blades to progress through the game. Local Co-Op means parents and siblings can join in the fun on the same tv screen.

    I love the Knack games. The adventure was fun and a great length. I loved the new abilities that Knack received in this game, especially the boomerang shot. The only downside to the came is the coop mode (reason for the 4 stars). In the coop mode you have to stay near each other while running around because it isn't split screen and the camera doesn't zoom out. One player can end up moving off screen when the other runs ahead. I found it to be aggravating.

    Fun Couch Co-op

    I got this game because my son absolutely loved the first one (he is 7). Knack 2 is about 1,000 times better than the first. This game was made for couch co-op and enjoying some good times with your kids. Intuitive fighting along with some fun platforming it has been a joy to play this with him. I think they nailed the price point also because for $60 I would of had to give it a hard pass but I am glad my son talked me into it because we have enjoyed it!

    Great Platformer for those new to the genre

    My wife and I are always looking for co-op games to play that don't result in a competitive shouting match. Knack 2 does a great job of being user friendly to those great at platforming and not so great at it. In co-op mode, you can automatically teleport to where your teammate is if you're having trouble with a series of jumps or obstacles. Outside of that, beautiful world, responsive controls, fun story. Great game.

    Knack 2 expands on the first one by adding new moves and enemies but has basically the same goals and mechanics as the original. The graphics and sound are great with smooth controls but the camera angle sometimes always isn't in the ideal place depending on the environment. If you are a fan of the original, it is a good game to continue Knack's adventure. It just seems to have lost a little bit of charm along the way.

    I'm not a huge fan of kid friendly games but I do have to buy some games for the kids. I played a couple of early stages with my daughter and we had fun doing puzzle and band bashing giant robots and other smaller creatures until the other kids wanted to join in. Its not a bad game but I don't care for the art style and the story doesn't interest me as an adult.

    I really enjoyed the first Knack. I'm not a hardcore gamer, more into sports games and simple ones I can place with a group of friends so Knack is a great game to pickup and play at anytime that isn't too difficult but still quite fun. Knack 2 just adds onto it and had a more wide spread storyline, a little harder difficulty, and just as fun play with new moves.

    It's really just playing on the first game but does it really well. The story continues but it does a good job of separating the plot enough to where it doesn't feel like a rehash of the first game. There are some new knack moves and the 2 player function is just great. Currently my kids favorite game over the Lego games and his skylanders games.

    I really enjoyed Knack when it released years ago, and this sequel is no disappointment! The gameplay is great, especially for those who don’t have countless hours to dedicate to a game. And most of all, it’s just fun to play! The co-op is a blast and the story is whimsical, yet intriguing.

    Knack 2 improves over Knack in every way

    I liked Knack but always thought if they gave the player more customization, more options, more puzzles, platforming it would be better. They listened. Now you have talent trees, now you have control over the size of Knack so you can figure out what to do on your own. Hopefully it sells well enough to get another sequel! Great game.

    If you like the first knack, you will love this one. Its alot like the first except that they expand on your gameplay and combat style. They are more things to do in this than the first. It's how a sequel should be. Keep the great things from the first game and expand to give you more to come back for.

    I’ve never played a game like this before. I’m used to third person games where you can change the camera angle but this game chooses camera angles and camera zooms for you. The fighting is simple and reminds me a little of Ratchet and Clank. The multiplayer is couch co-op only but very fun for the casual gamer.

    Somehow this was at 31st my doorstep days before release. I am an avid couch co up player and this is shaping up to be one of the best in ps4. The controls are responsive and all make sense. A great action game 3 hours in. I am very happy to say it's more than I hoped for.

    My son was crazy about Knack and went crazy when he saw Knack 2 was coming out. He introduced Knack to his 3/4 YO cousin who also enjoyed it. He really likes the gameplay but wish the game was longer. It's a good game for smaller children to enjoy without being frustrated & violent.
