Linear kid game that is difficult and not diverse

For a next gen game, I expected something more from this. Yes, I realize it's a kids game, but so were the Jak & Daxter series, and those series were amazing! Knack is:
- Very linear,
- Does not have a lot of ways to defeat enemies (punch them or jump and pound them - that's it),
- Has no diversity - you play as a small guy and as a big guy, fight basically the same kinds of enemies, and the power ups you receive from collectibles are trivial - no major improvements,
- Annoyingly difficult - I like a challenge, but in this game you are killed in one shot most of the time, and if you grow/power up and get huge, 4 shots AT MOST
- Has an "OK" story with cheesy dialogue (but hey, it's a kids game, Jak and Daxter was cheesy but fun).

Overall, I would not be upset if I didn't try this game, and I can't think of many kids who would be good at it since you have to be very careful as there are a lot of one-shot kills (I understand there are children that are better players than me, but I'd expect this game to be playable to MOST kids, not SOME).

Didn't expect much but it really was enjoyable. Normal difficulty was still fairly easy but the storyline was decent.
