I still cannot understand why on earth sony chose knack to be the first ps4 game to be shown to the public, i hate to be that guy but it kind of looks like shit.

Horrible attempt to turn a tech demo into a full game.

Someone needs to call the waaaaaaambulance for all of these whiners who think all games should cater to them.
The game looks fine, in fact is looks kinda fun in a 3D platformer sort of way.

Why are you calling an waaaaaaaaaahambulance for yourself .
To many opinions for you to handle ?

Agree with Baku and KORN, i may know nothing about marketing but you must be hell confident to bet on Knack as a defining launch title. It looks all right but... as PSN Vita game.

I do understand why it's there though, have you seen the other titles? They're all aimed at teens and adults. This is sony ticking the box called "kids game"

To be fair, it hasn't been front and centre since the reveal. They showed no footage at the conference. Mind you, they gave too much time to Ubi stuff, eventhough they demoes pretty well.

This looks terrible, Textures are very bland.

Last I checked, they revealed a ton of indie ports, a couple of indie originals, a new racing game, Killzone Next (or whatever it's called), Knack, Infamous and a slew of other aimed-at-aggro-males games.

I don't see how the existence of Knack somehow impedes anyone's "next gen-ness". Hell, it actually shows some diversity sorely lacking.

If you think Knack is the "first PS4 game", you haven't been paying attention.

That said, I don't think it looks "amazing". I wonder why every shot is so ambient. Shadows, please???

KORN seems to be right here, a game aimed at parents solely to trick them into considering PS4 as a christmas present for their little monsters. That's totally understandable. But due to way Knack was revealed as the first (i may be wrong) title back in February when maximum attention and hence judgement/critisism was aimed at Sony, majority of people, me included, roll their eyes in perplexity. If it would have been announced today along with Fez, Resogun etc nobody would ever say a thing.

I don't even mind this was the first game shown at the reveal conference back in feb, something more light hearted and fun is welcome imo, it was more the fact it was Cerny that is at he helm. He's the guy responsible for the architecture itself, you'd think it would look a little better? Maybe that's the problem. A tech guy in the role of designer. Doesn't quite work. I will say though, the glass in this game looks unbelievable. And the amount of physics based objects flying around is impressive. But it's all impressive in the same way a disembodied floating head is impressive. As a tech demo, not a game.

Umm.. you clearly don't know who Mark Cerny is (Google's your friend, if you don't).

He made Marble Madness (as a Designer AND Programmer).
And Crash Bandicoot (as a Designer).
Spyro the Dragon, Ratchet and Clank, etc... etc...
Not to mention consulting on many games.

So... it's probably best not to assume in many cases.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I liked the first one. The cover system works okay in elimination deathmatch. I'm not a fan of sticky cover as a rule though. Especially now that many games have done contextual auto cover that works. (28 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks I guess so? It's been a long time since I played one to be fair (37 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea.. that's what Gears of War is. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks also GOW looked interesting from some of the competitive matches I saw. But lots of weird sticky cover play (1 Hour ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks just started playing the Forest today and sunk too much time with my buddy. WOOF that game is fun (2 Hours ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (3 Hours ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 The new characters mostly uninteresting and their chatter during the game annoying at times. Marcus/Cole/Baird was very fun. Giant robots super fun. Wind mechanic way overused. (3 Hours ago)
