Knack Review - Your experience with Knack will come in all shapes and sizes as you search for ancient relics

 

Knack is a family friendly adventure mixed with an old school platformer that is a solid PS4 launch game.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

 

When Nintendo announced that it was returning to A Link to the Past’s version of Hyrule for A Link Between Worlds, I expected a nice, nostalgic homage to the SNES classic. I didn’t think it would blow me away. I was wrong. This isn’t...

Knack review

 

Knack is the next-gen's first platformer, from the PS4's chief architect Mark 'Crash Bandicoot' Cerny, and the console's unofficial mascot

Fantastic visuals ; Intuitive controls ; Replayability

Story a bit flat ; Some iffy camera angles ; Played it before

It may have a next-gen sheen, but PS4's Knack plays like a game made more than a decade ago. Depending on your take on things, that could be damning or really quite appealing. For us, it's a perfectly enjoyable slice of platform fun that entertains...

Knack review

 

Sony's cartoon platform aims to deliver the next-gen Crash Bandicoot. And fails.

Knack's neatly animated ; Distinctive cartoon world ; GIANT KNACK-SMASH!

Dumb checkpoint locations ; Repetitive bash and jump action ; Knack's bland personality

Knack’s cartoon adventure has some good ideas, but they're rarely used well

Knack

 

Easily the most child-friendly of the PlayStation 4's launch line-up, Knack presents a size-switching tale of relics and goblins. There's no denying the bright colours and next-gen sheen that make the game an attractive proposition for early adopters,...

While not devoid of charm and a solid visual showcase for the PlayStation 4, Knack is best described as a PSOne title in shiny modern clothing. Moving from area to area and fighting the hordes ad nauseam becomes an all too dull task, especially when...

Knack review (PlayStation 4)

 

"I'm going to need you to get as large as possible," theProfessor said to Knack, the lead character in Sony's PlayStation 4launch title of the same name. I had to smile at the comment. Buthe had a point: Knack gets better with size.

Fun for the most part, lush visuals, accessible gameplay largelyregardless of age

Weak story, repetitive combat styles, no great replay value

In short, Knack is a lot of fun at times. It won't go down as theworld's most innovative title, or the most memorable, but it maysurprise grown-up gamers with its ease of being fun without beingcondescending. For kids, it's a no-brainer -- fun,...
