    'Critics' have been queuing up to hate on this game since it was revealed. Bad review scores are expected. 4's and 3's though? Behave. How can it be that bad?

    I know I'll be getting it regardless and making up my own mind because I think it looks good.

    edit - ah, the Eurogamer review was by Tom Bramwell. That explains it. Can't take a word he says seriously

    i kind of agree, based on vids, with 5 or 6 on the scores. Without actually being hands on, the game just looks mundane and repetitive. Not horrible, just sort of meh.

    I will likely get it when I get my PS4 early next year, by then it should be in the dollar bin.

    Great idea for new kind of thread Ix! Metacritic Watch, I like it.

    I expected this score. Cerny said the only PS4 focused feature was Knack's particle effect and so after that, youre left with just a causal platformer. He did also say it was for families and kids and I dare say kids will love it.

    While I've picked up other games so far, I plan on getting knack within a week or two of the ps4 launch, I like the idea of it and enjoyed the demo I played of it on a demo unit.

    Already have Knack, can't do much about that lol. After my AC4 playthrough, I'll roll straight through Knack and if I don't like it....trade it in. Maybe I'll hold off on my BF4 purchase now so I have something to trade for.

    I expected it to score low. Sony left this game as an after thought. They just wanted all genres there at launch and their good teams were already busy. Mark was busy with the hardware so its understandable that this game couldn't be all that great

    Don't know about it being targetted at family and kids, apparently it's rock hard to complete.

    Not surprised about the score, but not all games will be 10's - especially launch titles. I'll be skipping this one.

    I expect this to happen across the board for lots of next gen titles. I'll still be getting knack when i buy my ps4 though.

    Me too, not buying. Not because I don't like it, but this is definitely not a 30$ game.This one will probably be a free plus title anyway.

    Yeah, the demo itself seemed to be a "tech demo" instead of a game demo. I'm still getting it though. I think my kids will like it more than I will.

    Yeah but Polygon also knocked Killzone for being a completely redundant same old thing sequel and for that gave it a 5. They gave COD Ghosts a 6.5, probably for drastically innovating COD gameplay but suffering some bumps and bruises in that implementation.

    I'm sorry but I just can't tell from reviews anymore. I don't bother. I preordered Remember Me very early and then read the mediocre reviews at release so I shelved it for months. I finally got around to it, thinking I paid for it I might as well give it a go. I loved that game. The scores in relation to the game I actually played made no sense at all.

    I've long realized games criticism probably won't get much better. I just didn't count on it getting so much worse. I'm getting launch editions of both consoles, looking forward to both, but I know the critics are going to smack around PS4 launch exclusives because they've picked it as the top new console. They're going to bear hug XOne launch exclusives because they've harshly condemned its hardware and original software policies. Just you wait and see. It's a child's contrived approach to appearing unbiased.

    I bought it too. Be here tomorrow. Agreed my kids will probably like it more than me but I'm going to play it. For the boys the local co-op validates the purchase right there.

    I haven't seen much, but everything I did see made the game look rather bland. It doesn't seem offensively bad, but it doesn't appear fun either. It's middle-of-the-road material.

    Seriously? Individual Metacritic posts? I feel like I have been slimed with slug slime. This could have been one post:

    PS4 Launch Games Metacritic Scores

    The "Meta" means a concept which is an abstraction from another concept, used to complete or add to the latter. People say the magazine scores are more reliable, but metacritic even admits in skewed selection of magazines to accept for scores. Also, they have a hard time distinguishing between magazine scores for the PREVIEW and the magazine score AFTER RELEASE.

    Anyway, these individual metacritic posts are useless.

    These individual metacritic posts are great. What's the point of a games subsection if you throw every game under a single thread??? People will want to discuss the merits of each individual release title. This really isn't rocket science to understand.
