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).
