For the most part this game is a playable Pixar movie in regards to the look of the cut scenes and the “PG” story line. The game itself doesn't highly utilize the full power of the PS4 graphics, but it's very clean and a little sharper then it would have been if it were released on the PS3.
The movement of the game is similar to God of War in that you can’t control what camera angle you get to see, and there are hidden chest with parts you can collect. The gameplay is ok for the most part in that you get to grow and shrink throughout the game; also you can incorporate different materials that let you do little tricks. But the story line will only hold the interest of kids...maybe.
Overall this game is ok for the most part. You won't be dreaming about it and want to play again in the morning, but you will want to finish the game and not send it back in the mailbox after only playing for an hour.
This Game takes full advantage to the PS4's abilities. It has great visuals that stun you in each area you explore.
With that said Knack is an interesting characters that interests you to keep the adventure going to the very end.
Taking the favorite scenarios of previous home and third party titles and mash it into battle with Robots, Flying creatures and Goblins.
Knacks growth makes it both fun and challenging for beginner and Veteran of Adventure/ Platformer games to have a satisfying experience.
The support characters have a great deal to do with the story and not just tell you what to do and do nothing. They give you hints to complete the stages but still don't help you in battle. But don't cry Knack very formidable and can beat any enemy he takes.
This game is challenging so playing along side you kids is okay up to 2 player gives them a helping hand. It is still playable and enjoyable for your kids so game on!
Leveling the character is fun and bring a different approach than that of the Ratchet and Clank Series. You find upgrades in hidden areas scattered across the Level/Chapters.
Knack it's self is interesting making you wonder what is he and what does it mean for future installments.
This game offers a lot to the franchise and to PS4 being one of the best starter sets to break in your PS4! I do hope Knack will be seen in future installments!
