    Better Than Critics Say

    |
    Posted .

    I know Knack got bashed by critics, but it's a game that must be played/tried to form an opinion on. I've enjoyed the game so far. Quick points: story - the story has some holes in it, but it is straight forward and easy to follow. graphics - the game is beautiful and very detailed; you can see every piece/particle that makes up knack clearly gameplay - it's simple, I mean real simple...punching, super moves, and jumping, that's bout it...but there's a catch: difficulty - even though the game is simple, it's tough...i'm talking old school Nintendo tough...1 hit kills, lack of save points, AI has cheap moves, etc...the game looks kiddie, but it plays far from that... ...overall, i'd recommend Knack...it's a simple & fun game that provides a good challenge...if you have kids, they'll like it (move so to look at it)...my godson loves to watch the game get played...

    Addictive Family Fun

    |
    Posted .

    I considered Knack when it was first released as one of the initial PS4 flagship/exclusive titles, but the critics reviews were lackluster. Took another look as user reviews seemed more enthusiastic, and my nine year-old son is sure glad I did. He LOVES playing this game with me, helping out as "Robo-Knack." The plot is not exactly original, the dialogue and voice acting are a little wooden, but the level maneuvering and combat are surprisingly imaginative and challenging. We enjoy seeking out hidden treasure chests with parts of special upgrades for Knack. My main gripe is how easy it is to re-spawn and gather additional resources, sometimes the incentive is to actually die a few times to pick up more sun crystals to use special attacks, rather than trying to gut it out with tactics/finesse (which I am accustomed to doing in Dark Souls etc.). But this game hits the mark for clean, family fun.

    Honestly, this game is a blast!

    Posted .

    I'm writing this review because of all the bad reviews I saw about this game on all the video game ratings websites. To be honest I haven't had this much fun playing any game in a long time. I play this game with my 4 year old son and he absolutely loves it. It's his first real video game besides iPad games, etc and he can't stop talking about it! I love how he can jump in and out of the game whenever he wants to and it doesn't affect the overall gameplay experience. You play as the character Knack and a second player can jump in and out of the game as robot version of Knack that helps fight the bad guys and can also help heal Knack. When robot Knack dies he just reappears whereas when Knack dies you have to start back at the last checkpoint you reached. Anyways the way the multiplayer works in this game is absolutely perfect to play with young kids or even older kids. The graphics in this game are really good and the story is very fun and I'll honestly be sad when we reach the end. I'll definitely go through the game again on hard mode since its so fun. This game gets 5 stars for great family fun that is challenging and has great graphics.

    Not the best, but not too bad either

    |
    Posted .

    Knack is, in my opinion, a game quite reminiscent of the Crash Bandicoot era of the PS1. With the cartoony, semi-Pixar-like graphics, to the fairly simplistic story, it's something casual gamers can pick up and enjoy, but I found it to be rather difficult in spots and often had to restart certain sections multiple times before I bested them. That is not to say it's a bad game overall, but the fluctuating difficulty levels, as well as the length of some certain sections as opposed to others, can be rather off-putting on a first time playthrough. For myself, whenever I would get stuck and frustrated, I'd often quit and play something else for a few days until the initial frustration had passed. Again, that doesn't make Knack a bad game overall, just don't expect it to be as easy as your initial impressions might make it seem at first.

    A very solid character action game.

    I'd like to start out saying that KNACK is not normally my type of game, but having Killzone Shadowfall, Assassin's Creed BF and Resogun I thought KNACK might be a nice change of pace, and have NOT regretted my decision. To be clear, this is not a platforming game, but rather a beat-em up with platforming. Reviewers have been harsh on the game, and I feel this is rather unfortunate, as it may dissuade its potential audience from picking it up. Mechanically, the game is fairly simple, and this is on purpose, evidenced by how you obtain power ups and upgrades, they are done slowly, through the course of the game, and more than likely you won't be able to use the majority of them until a 2nd playthrough.

    Not bad

    Posted .

    Purchased with the system as I wanted a game. Not a huge fan of some of the limited new titles so got this one. Fun little game to play, nothing difficult here, my wife is even able to play it and she does not play games so it is fun from this point. If there are advanced gamers in the house they will beat very quickly and become bored with it. Good for those not wanting all guns and explosions, no nudity or bad language either.

    Great launch platformer.

    Posted .

    One of the titles used to show off the graphical capabilities of the PS4 back during their famous 2013 E3 presentation/reveal, Knack actualyl is a pretty cool title that has a Katamari Damacy feeling to it. Think grabbing all the flotsam and jetsam around you, rolling it onto your body, then using that junk and the powers having that junk on your person imbues you with to take out enemies, and boom, you have cracked the game's da Vinci code. Don't expect Skyrim meets Mario here, but if you have a taste for mindless platforming, this is a gorgeous scratcher to take care of that itch.

    Great starter PS4 Game

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this game during the Christmas season for around $39.99 and for that price point I am happy with the game play. If I would have spent the $59.99 for this game that took less than a week to beat, then I would be highly upset. I work 15 hours a day and playing games relaxes me, so I play a few hours at a time and this game was very easy to beat. It is a good starter PS4 game, I would recommend to get it if you catch it on sale.

    Fun

    Knack is kind of what I thought in that it is great to play co-op with someone. The variety of levels and ways to help each other out make it fun. It can be a little easy on the normal difficulty, and if its too easy there, then just increase the difficulty level. So far, my girlfriend and I have put about 5 hours into the game, with plenty more left until completion. It is a nice game to pickup and play with someone for an hour or two here and there.

    Loads of fun!

    There are a lot of dark, violent games currently releasing on PS4. And those are a great fun, but it was nice to have this more playful option to add some light heartedness to my game library. It was especially fun watching my GF bash her way through so many cool levels as a giant robot with attitude! A great game.

    Not what I was expecting

    I was surprised by Knack. I got the game mostly as something my wife and I could play together. Don't believe the reviews, I loved this game! It did have a predictable story, but the gameplay was awesome! I was surprised at how difficult normal difficulty was for this game! Definitely one to add to your collection. The replay-ablitiy is great as well. The game opens up after you beat it once!

    Best family type game out for ps4

    |
    Posted .

    We bought this game because it seemed fun and because it was the only seemingly child friendly game available. So far everyone loves it. The sidekick character allows for younger kids to play along without much skill and to feel involved. It has been fun. Only complaint is the amount of violent behavior. It is not extreme, but is pretty unnecessary .

    Great graphics, a bit too short in gameplay!

    |
    Posted .

    My 6 and 10 year old finished this game after 3 total hours over 6 days! Don't get me wrong. They LOVED the game but we all felt it was too short. If you're kids are Skylander fans, they will like this game but doesn't quite deliver on longevity of gameplay. Still would recommend based on my kids enjoyment of this installment.

    Great Kids Game

    Posted .

    This could be the best game for younger kids on the PS4 at this time. The linear environments, and scaling gameplay make it great. My daughter (Age 10) had a great time with the game. For me, the linear environment are a bit disappointing, but cranking the difficulty to hard makes the game enough of a challenge to keep it interesting.

    Awesome beat em up/platformer

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this on a whim since it was cheap and I saw some of the demos when the PS4 launched. It was a great decision. This is a fantastic beat em up style platformer. It has some nice Katamari style elements, and the art style was very well done. For 20 dollars, its a pretty good buy.

    Okay Game....

    Posted .

    This game was fun only because you actually have to use some strategy to get by a level. It was more of a challenge which I enjoyed. The storyline was really predictable, I pretty much predicted what was going to happen before it actually happened, some of the enemies were a little tough and was a little unfair at times.

    Underrated game.

    Posted .

    I enjoyed playing this game with my sone. Just enough challenge for my son and I to play together without getting too frustrated. The story is good, and the way Knack grows during the game to work with the gameplay worked very well. My only complaint is the camera angle could change at funny times. It never caused any issues during fights or exploring, but it made no sence on the changes. Reviews show the game is good, but I feel it is better than most of the reviews give it credit for, and there is room for Sony to grow this character.
