Knack could have been so much more than what it is.

Like many others, I find it complements the platformers of old and is a lot of fun(which is what's SUPPOSED to matter, after all).

I played Knack last night for several hours and I started to get extremely bored with it. I wasn't expecting the game to be fantastic, but I'm definitely disappointed. Definitely wasted potential on that game.

@ CSI_Quality: Well, then why does Knack have to be so boring? I mean the argument of it being for everyone and for people who are new to the consoles is more of an excuse.

Look at the most recent Sly or the R&C game that just came out, those are really good old-school jump'n'runs that are not boring at all, easy to pick up with a lot of variety and a good learning curve, while still being very enjoyable for new players, but also people who are used to consoles and j'n'r veterans.

I still think, even though I'm a huge PlayStation fan, that Knack could, no, should have been better.

CGI-Quality1822d ago

Neither of your comments disproves what I said. YOU think it's boring. Others don't.

MajorJackHoff1822d ago

lol @ disagrees. You people are serious? Stop being a fanboy and look at it objectively. The game isn't that great, and the fact of the matter is, if this game was on Xbox you would slam the holy hell out of it.

I find it to be fun... Gameinformer got it right.

Surpassed my expectations from the previews.

so this is the great Marc Cerny huh?

Kevlar0091822d ago

Imagine if Nintendo or Naughty Dog had gotten ahold of it. A lot of missed potential

AngelicIceDiamond1822d ago

Knack is a launch title, and look you guys can disagree all you want but within 6 months from now, Knack will be forgotten by most.

At least until it makes PSN+.

This guy sucks, he made Knack

GuruMeditation1822d ago

Even if knack is a misfire, and thats subjective, Cerny has been a bit of a legend since Atari. One badly recieved game can't erase mega-classics like Marble Madness, or even his work on Sonic 2 etc. The guy's an industry treasure.

ravinash1822d ago

And don't forget this guys was producing this game a long side developing the PS4.
I think if anything, Knack was a project to help the PS4 development process and the software and dev kits.

No one can be expected to get everything right 100% of the time.
Still looked OK however.

WitWolfy1822d ago

SMH for Knack... Is it really that bad?

Kevlar0091822d ago (Edited 1822d ago )

The combat is repetitive, enemy variety is somewhat slim, barren environments (there can be a lot of unused space or uninspired areas), weird difficulty (can be hard or easy at weird times).

From what I've seen it's nothing too special, the concept is cool and it looks good but not noteworthy in terms of gameplay. Overall it's about a 6, 7 if you are forgiving. Some people will find it fun, others just off the mark from being remarkable.

boring and repetitive. fight the same enemies over and over with forgettable story plus 1080p ps3 graphic
