Pete Dodd "Knack isn’t a perfect game. It’s not a game that will make you a fan of a genre that you don’t care about. If you loved games like Jak and Daxter or Ratchet and Clank you will find plenty to like in Knack even though it never quite hits those heights. If you hated Crash/Sly/Jak/Ratchet this game will not win you over; in fact it will probably make you hate the genre even further. My point, however, is that fans of the genre wouldn’t throw 9s or 10s at this game. It’s very good, as I will argue, but it has issues."
