    The newly added depth to not only your offensive attacks, but also your defensive options allows battles to feel fresh and rewarding.

    In the absence of an epic tale, a torrent of doodads to collect, or some time-devouring crafting system — all the fixtures big business gaming says you need to survive today — Knack 2 just works.

    Knack II completely eclipses its predecessor with a revamped combat system, gorgeous visuals, and a new focus on platforming and puzzles.

    The pacing is spot-on, the combat satisfying and the gameplay varied. Co-op is genuinely good fun too, and most definitely the best way for younger gamers to get into the action. Knack 2 is definitely a step up from the original, then, but until the writing and characterisation improve drastically, it’s not going to be a true first party titan.

    Knack 2 is a game that improves what we saw in its first installment and brings a fun and great experience for all sectors of the public. It aims for diversity and achieves it.

    Besides some new features, Knack 2 fails to avoid some flaws like the soporific storyline and a sub-par technical aspect. On the other hand, the gameplay is still good and some places offer a decent challenge to the player.

    Of course, Knack 2 adds a few things compared to the first one. But it really lacks fun, visuals that feel PS4, and even humor to touch its target.

    Considering reviewers unfairly shafted the first game why most people liked it it was to be expected reviewers won't live this game...ThatConsidering reviewers unfairly shafted the first game why most people liked it it was to be expected reviewers won't live this game...That said as I already stated the first one was already a good and challenging game for the whole family. The sequel improves in all areas so I'd probably give it an 8 for singleplayer and 8.5 for coop gameplay. There aren't many games for all ages like this...if you have kids do yourself a favour and buy this game.

    I'll rate it a 10 here to counter the senseless haters.

I know, it's rare nowadays) are a dying breed, which is a shame, because it's a great way to have fun with your friends and family. I'm personally not into the online multiplayer games which are huge nowadays, but I love playing with my buddies in the same room. Knack 2 is enormously successful in this regard - perhaps one of the best I've ever played. My son and I played this for about 2 hours last night, and it was awesome! The controls are super smooth, the gameplay is fun, the graphics are great, and most importantly, every co-op aspect has been carefully designed and works excellent. We were running around, smashing robots and busting goblin heads, laughing hysterically. There are also great puzzle/platforming areas which require teamwork (not sure how it works in single player), and what's really cool is there's a warp button that allows you to instantly reach your friend's location for those occasions when the distance between you has grown too far, or when he needs immediate backup against a heavy. I also enjoy the cartoony art design of this game; it's a refreshing break from the realistic ultra-violent titles. I play those too, but this is just unique. Sort of like a Lego video game, but with the graphics and intensity turned up to 11. Expand

Not to mention much lagging that I had, the character feels uncontrolable, so many dull platforming. Thing that got me was a BIG Glitch on 2-4 chapter, the cutscene doesnt start, the next location is dead, I just cant progress. Tried a lot of tricks, none worked. This game is dead for me too, and no moneyback! But Sony must payback one day for all the shet they do with serious faces. Hell of an exclusive game. Expand
