Knack PS4 Gameplay - New PS4 Offscreen Gameplay
Can't wait for this game at launch
I really love this game's combat gameplay, it's also cool that Knack can use the homing attack like Sonic the Hedgehog does
a game made by the father PS4, how can i say no to it?
I have to say, I like the end part of this gameplay (around 8 minutes) much more than what they showed on Jimmy Fallon. I really do hope the game delivers. I may not get it at launch, but I do plan to a tad bit further down the line.
This is a game for kids tbh.....I better not see any grown men playing this game
Well you better close your eyes because this grown ass man will be playing him some Knack day 1.
Lmao wow, who does this kid think he is? XD Knack looks amazing, I'll be playing for sure :O
God of War for kids! I really tried to see more gameplay and check if I was wrong. But the combat is really simple, with no puzzles and the levels are just too linear (and I'm not a big fan of open world). I was expecting at least more diversification in the use of the particles. But you can only get large.
I'm a grown ass man, and I've already preordered this, along with Killzone, Infamous and The Order. When I am playing this game on my PS4, what are you going to have to say? I can save your time right here and right now by telling you that I don't give a flying donkey f*ck. The game is like a Pixar movie, something that will be fun and enjoyable for all ages, and I'm looking foward to playing that as well as other PS4 games. Not to mention, I really don't see how this game is made for little kids only, seeing as War and guns are among the themes. Please tell me you're not one of the morons who said that LBP and Kinectimals were the same shit, are you?
40 yr old dude here who will be buying this game.
@Not-so-Epic_Troy: Who are you to tell people what games they can play at what age? Grown ups can do what they want with their own money.
My problem is not being for kids actually. It is the repetitive gameplay. Just hope to be wrong.
Ha age doesn't mean you can't have fun. I'll be getting knack on launch. Last couple of weeks I went and saw monsters university and despicable me 2. Guess thats bad too. Went and saw them with my gf though, just like this is the kind of game she'd play with me. Guess you don't have to worry about that huh
This game should've released on PS3.. not PS4.. I prefer a new LBP/Crash than this. The only good things about this game are UE4 and the particles
Im honestly not that interested in this game.
You and me both, Relientk77.
Reminds me of Crash.
Thank you guys for the stars :) On topic: yeah i want to pre order this game
Will be a great family game. The graphics look amazing like a pixar movie. Its crazy how we never thought we would get graphics like movies like Toy Story yet here we are... Looks like a great game to relax playing after a MP SESSION IN Killzone Shadow Fall :P
With all the particles and effects, this game would be 100x cooler with PhysX.
Havok would be a better option. Physx is gpu only, and you dont want to let the GPU do extra work, while you got plenty of cores on your cpu to do all that work. Gpgpu like techniques became obsolete thanks to multi core processing. Back in the days when processors had only one thread they where constantly bottlenecked by physics, but now with multiple threads per cpu, its pointless to offload physics to the gpu.
This is just a launch game. Imagine what they will do in the future with this type/art/vision . So much potential. however, I think kids will enjoy this. But it's not really for me..
i will buy this game at launch with ps4
i hope it ends up being like mutant blobs attack where you get bigger and bigger to eventually you're the size of buildings and then mountains
Looking forward to the game and hope it will be a good game. I like playing platformers, that's why I still play the Rachet and Clank and Jak and Daxter collections. Would like to also get a new R&C game for PS4.
So what's so good about this game? Looks like a kids game? Think I will leave it to be honest I can't see why people want it - kind of reminds me of the Lego games
Its a PS4 exclusive and thats all. This game could be done on PS3.
no it couldn't, Mark Cerny has stated the particle physics simulation they use for Knack is beyound something the PS3 could handle and this vid and others don't do the graphics justice, this game has pixar like graphics.
Not every game needs to be a shooter that has you kill thousands of people and the Lego games are good.
so damn true NOT every game needs shooting, death, blood, and gore. i think a lot of people seem to forget that games are suppose to be about fun, and if this game will bring that for some more power to it.
Its not the fact that its not a shooter thats turning ppl off i think. For me its the repetitiveness of it and thats only like a 15min clip, i cant imagine playing this game for any longer. Tons of great games arent shooters but they are also good games.
but LBP, Crash and LEGO are MORE interesting than this game.. Even the car couldn't be destroyed on this game
Exactly , i wish if they went deep with it like crash. But it's not like we are forced to buy this . There are many other options for adults..
This game is the clear proof that new generation does not necessarily mean gaming evolution. You're saying this could be done in ps3. Well, I see ps2 design level there.
I can agree that we've seen nothing yet that shouts "next gen" about Knack, but then again we've seen practically nothing, and as has been mentioned its particle physics that aren't possible on weaker hardware. Mark Cerny is a certified genius and I don't think he is firing short on making an impressive game on impressive hardware. And in regards to your "kids game" comment: Jak & Daxter and LittleBigPlanet also look like kids games and many Nintendo's flagship titles also appear the same, but we all know better.
it looks like alot of fun i can't wait PS4 FTW:)
actually I found it kind of disappointing. the lack of destruction with his attacks simply going through buildings and cars kills the immersion for me. and the gameplay looked really simple. I hope you absorb a lot of powers as you change shape and get a lot of combos. the game would be so much better if there were buildings and stuff crumbling everywhere. hopefully it gets better, but I think I'll be passing on this one.
What's so cool about this game? Did you guys watch a different trailer than I did? Cause I didn't see anything exciting besides him punching enemies that were afraid to fight back
Yeah I can't say this game looks impressive at all. I just don't get it....
I know it's quite a while till it comes out so there's time to improve it, But does anyone else think that Knack feels really empty and lifeless? The enemies seem forced and the environment isn't anything new (kinda reminds me of Sonic 06, empty and boring :/ ). I just hope they improve the overall atmosphere of the game before launch because it has a lot of potential.
That's what I thought. There are hardly any enemies or life in the environment and the few enemies that are there have pathetic AI. Then you look for puzzles and it's all the same easy stuff. The fighting is also too simplistic and repetitive. I was interested in this game but after watching that, I think I'll wait and see.
Hype trash train. I sure hope lots of money was not used on this game.
The level design looks like it came from a PS2 game and gameplay seems very simple.
Man people seem foolish nowadays this looks like a gr8 game for all ages and looks pretty fun to play
Sorry Knack fans, this looks like sh*t.
Wish we had Ratchet Game as launch title instead. Fixed camera and don't like the way Knack moves and combat seems shallow too.
Anything Mark Cerny, day 1.
The graphics are actually pretty good, vibrant colors, clean level design, nice edges on everything. Graphics like this were promised since the SNES days for casual kid friendly games and in that sense it delivers. As for gameplay, difficulty, i could see this being more difficult on hard but this isn't really on my radar. I will say this, if this gets 90s on metacritic, I'll cop it.
For people that don't get why people like me would be excited for this game, it's because we like 3D platformers, and classic style gameplay and have more than likely grew up on these types of games (3D platformer golden age). it's simple, provides a laid back sort of challenge, has a creative aesthetic that's easy on the eyes, and is overall a breath of fresh air over all the gloom and doom, gore and violence, run and gun, gritty and dramatic games that flood the market these days. It's not something that would make me cry, fill me with anger, induce adrenaline, or require mass thought, it's a game i can just sit back play and enjoy. That doesn't mean it's a "kids game" if that were the case i guess Zelda, LBP, Mario, Sly, Banjo Kazooie, Conkers BFD, Crash bandicoot, Spyro, Ratchet and clank, and Jak series is just for kids
Well said. I love games like TLoU, Mass Effect and so on, but at the same time I also enjoy games like R&C, J&D, Crash Bamdicoot, Spyro, Gex, LBP and so on as well. I still play the good old platformers on my retro consoles because they are fun and a nice change from all the shooting.
Yeah but there wasnt really any platforming either...most of the time the dude was on rails and fought against like 1-3 enemies and constantly did his little jump dash attack. I love platformers too but this looks like nothing special or innovative in that department.
