From what I'm reading so far, Knack is a dud. Everyone is saying the graphics for it aren't impressive and the gameplay gets boring after awhile. Looks like the kiosk are finally hitting retails, but there's nothing on the PS4 kiosk that is showing the power of the system. Sony made a big mistake here.

I'll have to judge it for myself. Everyone has their own opinions on games like these. Hopefully Gamestop or Best Buy now has their kiosk in.

No. Project spark beats it imo.

Anyone who knows anything about the new consoles doesn't need to play Knack to know what console is more powerful.... multiple multiplats and KZ has done that already.

Ryse looks better so does Forza 5

Everyone who has played Forza 5 lately have said it looks terrible.

Too bad it's anything but from what I've been seeing through the gameplay.

Why are so many people talking about Knack all the time? It's a "family game" aimed at kids. Why would it be impressive?

Forza has never looked terrible!

Does this game look terrible to you?

Loading Video...

A CGI trailer is supposed to impress me? LOL.

The actual game doesn't look like that in case you didn't know.

I played it at a kiosk. It doesn't look incredible, but it's pretty fun to play, if you like cartoony action games.

Mario is a family game yet it has many unique aspects and finely tuned gameplay mechanics that puts many Triple A games to shame. But the problem with Knack is that the gameplay looks dumb as fck.

As of now all we seen is some crappy beat em up easily comparable to the old Ninja Turtles games on the Nes but many people were expecting actual platforming. You know like responsive jumps, simple gameplay but good feedback just like the old Crash games. But again, Knack looks boring, slow and dumb.

Knack is a worthless game that should have never been on the PS4. I am starting to feel bad for Sony. This crap and a Killzone is all they have?

I thought it may end up being good but after finally watching some gameplay videos at kiosks and the like my views changed. It looked incredibly boring and repetitive. The city street demo that is playable is the worst. Linear, repetitive and boring.

Crimson Dragon, Lococycle and Project Spark are far more original than Knack.

The problem is here that people are comparing totally different types of games.

Comparing Knack to Forza 5 and Ryse is just stupid. What you should be comparing it to is other action platformer/kids games on Xbox One (I'm not saying all platformer games are kids games). You can only compare like for like.

Now if you want to say that the PS4 line up is lacking a few types of game that is fine, but why bash something because it isn't something else?

@edwardecl: Yup. Gamers. They hate on annual titles like COD but then hate a game when it's something different like Knack or Beyond Two Souls.

@Mkavanaugh77:

Knack looks absolute nothing like Ratchet ans Clank in terms of gameplay. Why people compare the two so much because of the graphics alone is beyond me.

Yesterday i've beaten the whole gemo (took about 15 minutes) and it was complete SHIT. During normal gameplay the game ran smoothly but when you use your Super attacks by pressing Triangle fps drop below 20 and i bet i saw mine reach low 10's when i used the tornado attack in the "Tank" level. Gameplay itself (on normal) was so easy its insulting... Combat system is made for babies and the game graphically look like a ps3 title. Jaggies and trash textures all over the place while being blurry... This game has no place on PS4 and we should all throw rocks at Cerny for making this crap!

I don't know where you live but here in Canada we have these Kiosks all over the place. You don't need to believe me just visit a bestbuy and try for yourself. Funny how they had a ps4 and no1 was on it so i stayed 20+ minutes trying crap like FIFA WhateverthecomingonPS4 and this as well looked like crap but not as bad as Knack.

yet again someone knocking KNACK the fact is Mark Cerny has already come out and said, he isn't out to get the best graphical award, he isn't out to impress he is making a game, which he wants a game which he believes children grown ups the whole family can enjoy, and the graphics are great, there just not power house realistic there more pixar movie cgi.

it's a original and the only reason people are hating is because were so used to fps's and action adventure, in real world.

Not at all... The game doesn't look like a pixar movie but more of a blurry mess with a budged of $100. Wii/PS3/360 all have way more and better games for kids. Knack has no place on ps4's launch lineup.

knack looks like a steaming pile. Both the gameplay and graphics are unimpressive, and the story looks awful as well. Sony better keep this off the kiosks and put killzone on there if they want to sell ps4's.

Whhaaa..whaaaa...whaaaaa. The butthurt from cows are hilarious. I'm not a lem. I actually have Knack preordered, but probably won't get it after seeing the response from people playing it. I still want to play it for myself, but right now it doesn't look like it's worth $60, that's for sure. I might cancel this preorder and put it toward "The Order 1886" instead.
