Product Description


An Unlikely Hero

Mankind must turn to Knack, an unlikely hero, to protect them from a dangerous new threat. The unassuming Knack stands at a mere three feet tall, but thanks to the power of mysterious ancient relics, he can transform into a powerful brute or even a gigantic wrecking machine. Knack is mankind's only hope for turning the tide against the invading goblin army, but trying to harness the true power of the relics could threaten to put the whole world at risk.

From Mark Cerny, one of the greatest minds in video games today, Knack is a fun-filled platforming adventure of colossal proportions that invites players to wield fantastic powers and discover a unique and vibrant world, available exclusively for PlayStation 4.

Bought this for my nephew as a Christmas present. He loves it my wife loves it, brother in law loves and it was the first PS4 game I completed

It's not got any innovative features and for seasoned games.will get samey but for some reason appeals to lots of different ages and gamers. Hope the character returns but with more depth to the gameplay.

Eye candy is prevelant it's just all a bit punch jump special power type thing.

Gets the 5 stars as the difficuly levels make it possible for a challenge to anyone and it just is a fun game to play for the family

5.0 out of 5 stars I honestly can't understand the negative reviews 1 Dec. 2013
By Michael
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy? No. - Fun? Absolutely. 21 May 2015
By Jon
I think this is one of the most underrated games on the PS4.
The most accurate way of describing this game is a mix between a platformer and a beat-'em-up. You navigate through levels killing any enemies in your path. However some parts of the level require a bit of strategy and well times jumps to clear bottomless pits or other obstructions in your path. Every now and again you will be required to solve the odd puzzle or fight a boss using a new gameplay mechanic - something which is quite refreshing.

The graphics are very nice too. Sure, they don't push the PS4 to any limits or extremes but the shading is really good and the textures are actually quite detailed in a cartoony sort of way.

I think what people don't like about it is the difficulty of the game. And it's true, the game is hard. There is a very severe lack of checkpoints meaning that you might successfully kill wave after wave of difficult monster only to be left with barely any health, killed by a single weak enemy and have to do it all over again. But it's not impossible and once you do hit a checkpoint, it's incredibly satisfying.

Also, the Co-Op mode seems very rushed. The 2nd player only has one or two hitpoints compared to player 1 (who has a proper health bar) and there are no consequences if they die. This means that the 2nd player can be used as to clear out all of the enemies in a room whilst the 1st player sits and waits. There are also certain sections in the game that just can't be completed without without one of the players dying (eg when the floor falls under your feet).

5.0 out of 5 stars A LOT of game for the money. 3 July 2014
By A. Cresswell TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

Excellent Game. This is the sort of game you will come back to and play hour after hour and enjoy everything about it. The game play is wonderful and is very fluid, the puzzles are interesting, the story line engrossing. It's one of those very very good games that years from now, those who played it will recount it with quiet fondness. It's a lot like Zelda or Mario Super Cart. The game play is simplicity itself but utterly engrossing and engaging. I can put my hand on my heart and say that if I was stuck on a dessert island and could have 3 other games like COD or watchdogs OR I could take just Knack I'd take this. It's simply great and would keep me engaged for weeks. Thoroughly recommended to anyone with a PS4 and for any age really as it's totally inoffensive.

Brilliant game. Got it with my ps4 for christmas (2014) have played the whole game. completed now, but it was brilliant loved every minute. it is between a platform game and a street fighting game to save the world!!! I couldn't put it down. It is up there with crash bandicoot, sonic, mario and all the other great classics there have been over the years. like other people have said it has a great plot and storyline. I love knack from relics,to ice, to wood, to special iron that makes him see through!Knack is a great character, that you will grow to love through the game! my children enjoyed helping me find all the special crystals and relics and watching me beat the baddies!! I hope that they make more great games. I would love to see a knack 2 or sequel to this game. I would reserve it now!!!! What more can i say if you like good platform games then this is definitely one to consider.
