I'm taking advantage of the buy two get one at Target on launch day, and I don't really want to take a second copy of Call of Duty seeing that I've already bought it on Wii U, but I can't find anything else that's intriguing enough...

Journalists seem to like Knack, but I've played the demo and it's soooo boring and simple. Is there something I'm missing? Please tell me there's something I'm missing... Anybody....

I preordered it personally. I haven't played the demo or anything but to me it seems to have that Little Big Planet/Puppeteer feel to it. Sometimes I like games that I can just play and not have to care about my K/D ratio or fight wave after wave of enemies. I feel like Knack will be one of those kind of games that you just play for the heck of it. Just my two cents.

What other's are you getting?

As for Knack, if you don't like it you just don't like it. You've played it as much as anyone else, doubt I could sell you on it just because I was entertained.

As far as we know, Knack is a game where you fight wave after wave of enemies... It's a beat em up.

If you're getting a game free anyways, you might as well pick up something though. If you don't like it, you can always trade it in for some value.

@IMAHAPYHIPPO: I wouldn't say its boring but it definitely do not feel like its a next gen game. I have grown out of platformers anyway but I could appreciate if the graphics actually look next gen, I played the entire demo today at gamestop. It seems sort of fun but not worth my money. I just don't think there is a lot to the game and like i said on another post that the cars and structures just dont look detailed for me. Maybe i am jaded with AAA games like COD(which i haven't played the new one) but knack as a launch game wouldn't make me buy PS4. I preordered PS4 but knack is by no means the reason i am buying PS4.

I too will use the 2 for 3 target deal but my games will be NBA 2k,Madden and either COD,battlefield or Assassin Creed as my free game.

I'm getting the sense it is like Baby God of War. I still need to try it, though.

There is no way that anyone on the planet can convince you to like Knack. If you played the demo. Didn't enjoy the game nothing anyone can say is going to make you like. Just get a another game.
