Excerpt: Knack is an action platformer that should feel right at home next to games like Ratchet & Clank or Jack and Daxter , but while it seems to have all the right parts, something feels lacking. Visually speaking, Knack looks good. It won’t win any awards for realism, but the game’s stylized nature means that it isn’t supposed to.
Excerpt: KNACK is the first Playstation 4 exclusive game Family Friendly Gaming is reviewing. Want to know something? It is the worst representation of the next generation on so many levels. KNACK is a huge disappointment. This home console game is boring, uninspired, and violent.
Excerpt: If you haven’t heard the name Mark Cerny, you’ve definitely seen and played the games he has worked on and consulted for with franchises including Crash Bandicoot, God of War and Uncharted all enjoying his contributions and insights.
Summary: Knack is not only a miserably boring action game, but it features one of the worst heroes ever made. Knack is easy to kill, stupid looking and part of an adventure that will never end. This PlayStation 4 game is too difficult for kids and too generic for adults. It's a disappointing failure on just about every level. Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.
Conclusion: Un gentil jeu de plates-formes qui distille des éléments intéressants çà et là mais qui pêche trop par certains aspects pour être incontournable. Jeu PS4 oblige, on s'attendait à en prendre plein les mirettes. Ceci est d'autant plus vrai que le nom de Mark Cerny se profile derrière Knack. Architecte de la PS4, l’homme a ensuite endossé le rôle de directeur créatif pour le développement de Knack. Le jeu ne met pas vraiment en avant la puissance de la PS4 .
Pros: Nouvelle licence, Quelques très beaux niveaux, Des personnages attachants, Aspect film d'animation
Cons: Répétitif, Inégal, Quelques ralentissements, Manque de charisme des personnages, Pas de réelle claque visuelle
Excerpt: With the introduction of each new generation of console I’m always excited to see the first release for each genre type, especially when that game is a first-part title as is the case with Knack. Knack is the debut platformer title on Sony’s new PlayStation 4 that blends Pixar-inspired cinematics with a leading character that is part Tasmanian devil and part Crash Bandicoot.
Conclusion: Knack is not only a miserably boring action game, but it features one of the worst heroes ever made. Knack is easy to kill, stupid looking and part of an adventure that will never end. This PlayStation 4 game is too difficult for kids and too generic for adults. It's a disappointing failure on just about every level.
