    Again, that's just another reason to ignore SCORES and RATINGS.

    Played it, it was fun and looked great. Nice little basic game for the launch. Kind of reminded me of the old nintendo / genesis days, like an old beat'em up lol very basic fun.

    Watching the twitch streams of it on co-op mode, it looks like the game is more fun with another player though.

    Not surprised about the score, but not all games will be 10's - especially launch titles. I'll be skipping this one.
    If it has difficulty settings, easy is probably family and kids, normal is hard to complete and aimed at older, more avid gamers. Reviews are usually played on normal. I mean yeah sure if it gets tough and they just want it done they'll switch to easy and not write they did that. See, that might helpful games criticism. While Knack is occasionally difficult and frustrating playing at normal difficulty, stepping down to the easy setting will well suit most younger children, and adults less tolerant of perhaps excessive game difficulty. Yeah, too bad they don't cover that. If you can't step down without starting the whole game over, they should mention that, too.

    I'm out of the games criticism thing but when I was in it I had an acronym for how some of the Knack reviews strike me. DNP, RFPK. Did not play, reviewed from press kit. Game critics have different tastes but most of them can usually agree on the quality of the graphics related to the console generation and genre. Some of the critics say Knacks looks great. Some imply the visual work shouldn't even qualify as next gen. Well somebody on one side of that line or the other didn't see much of the game firsthand.

    The men's magazine Maxim once ran a brief review of a game, along with a score, like they'd played it. They had a print deadline way before the game's release date and on top of that the game got pushed back a couple of weeks to iron out bugs and, further, major games publications made note when they much later had just received their review copies. There was no way the Maxim games writer played that game but they ran a review anyway.

    yea, I think I'll skip this one. I mean it looks good but it's probably missing the platformer feature that it kind of should have. I bet if he made this with more platform elements, it would have been really good.

    I didn't think of the difficulty lvls, or if it had them. If the hardest is a much more "populated" game, then I'll start there.

    Yep looks like a Christmas title for me. Don't think I'll hang onto AC Black Flag anyway so I'll resell/trade that for BF4 and Knack.

    Like any review of anything, its all subjective.

    Knack is still a day 1 for me and I know I'll have a lot of fun with it

    It all boils down to this..... Buy the games you want and review them yourselves. I have seen some of these sites spite anything that isn't cod or another game I won't mention.

    Let me give you some advice so you can see what I see.



    Google Kameo review score for the xbox360 and look at those scores and then come back to this forum....

    It's like platform games have no place in the world where people play Cod and Bf4 obsessively. Now watch this game be moderate or more than ok from people who bought it on this forum.

    You can ignore the scores/ratings if you want but at least read the reviews. No one knows for sure whether or not they'll enjoy a game they haven't played.

    This game will most likely be the 1st game to go free on PS+ anyway due to the low ratings and general appeal. It doesnt even seem unlikely it would be around christmas time aswell i would just save my money and use it on some other game

    I trust Game Informers reviews over any other review site or magazine. They gave it an 8.3, so the game is probably worth an 8.

    Is anyone surprised? I never thought the game looked any good and after seeing Eurogamers 4/10 review it confirmed it.
