When I went to pre-order my PS4 the one launch time that stood out as something a bit different was Knack. It wasn't the same old shoot 'em up or racing game, it looked something more unique and that is why I picked it as the game to go with my new PS4.

Then the reviews started coming in and really slating the game and I did think about cancelling the pre-order and chording another game but I am so glad I ignored all the negative reviews. Knack is such a fun game to pick up and play. There is no big learning curve like in other games and it is a real throwback to the classic platformers. In fact It's probably one of the best launch titles I've played of any console.

The controls are very easy to learn and the gameplay reminds me a bit of the Ratchey and Clank games, collecting power ups and beating up enemies.

I honestly cannot believe the poor reviews the press have given this game. I think it appeals to a wide audience and adds something a little different to gaming catalogues that are overflowing with FPSs and racing games. I hope Sony make it into a series like Jak and Daxter or Ratchet and Clank.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite got the knack of it 9 July 2014
By Paul B TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Some games just seem to set themselves up to fail. Take Knack, a game created for the Playstation 4 by one of the heroes of the original Playstation, Mark Cerney; creator of Marble Madness and producer of Crash Bandicoot. How could that possibly go wrong?

Knack feels a lot like Crash, it’s a platformer with no pretence of being anything else and it’s all about jumping, hitting enemies, avoiding things and collecting power ups. The gameplay is pretty much as old school as you can get. So why was it a flagship launch title for PS4?

The main focus here is on the titular character himself and his ability to grow big or small using ‘relics’ found throughout the game. In the initial previews this looked like a cool idea, controlling the size of your playable character and using some neat particle effects to show off the power of the console. In practice, Knack grows bigger and smaller only when scripted to do so and usually without any help from the player.

So that leaves us with the platforming element, which is pretty much old school platforming by numbers; path from A to B with a few creatures to kill, then a locked area that needs to be cleared before being opened. It’s not bad by any means and there’s nothing wrong with it, but it’s certainly not anything new or exciting.

Throughout each level there are yellow crystals to collect that give you a sort of solar power. This allows you to fire pieces of your relic-based body at enemies or turn into a whirlwind. These powers are essential for clearing some of the more pesky enemies, but use it too early and you’ll run out of power to use it again when you most needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game 15 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase
Great game. It received a lot of negativity so I almost didn't purchase it but very pleased I did; then again, I am a fan of 'fun' platform games such as Crash Bandicoot. The game combines story telling and action sequences very fluidly. Although the storyline is fairly predictable, and also 'thin' at ties, there are some nice twists and you shift along pretty quickly from one level to the next. Overall I was very happy and the game provided hours of game play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must BUY!!!! 1 Dec 2013
By abzdine
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Where to start??

This game is by far the most underrated game of all time because it has everything. Graphics are crazy, gameplay is great and responsive, the sound of the things you collect can be heard directly in the controller.
The game is challenging enough which makes it for all ages.
On top of all this, it's playable in co-op.
You don't have a second controller but you have a vita? One player can control the game with Vita and the other one with the DualShock 4.
Everything is made for the player to enjoy and have a great experience.
BUY this game, you won't regret it at anytime.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's fun, why is that a problem? 4 Dec 2013
By Smeaton
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Quite simply Knack is a fun launch game. The graphics are solid but the idea and concept could have been done on the PS3 and that's why it's been slated by the critics - the graphics are better than PS3 but reviewers want bleeding edge Pixar animation, which for a launch title this is not at that level, albeit I think the PS4 could get to that after the developers have a few years playing with the hardware.

It's a typical 'Playstation' game, a bit like a Crash Bandicoot/Spyro type game. It's fun, the mine with the relics is the best chapter so far (I think chapter 5). The number of enemies on screen is quite impressive at times.

Single player covers 11 worlds and is around 12-13 hours to go through each time, to get all the extra's double that. It's also 48GB in size so no wonder it was never a download only game. Co-op play is also decent.

The ability to grow and shrink in a platformer has been done for 25 years, this however puts a new spin on the way it is done and is fun.
