Mmmmm ... Knack is getting bashed by quite a few reviews so that's off of my list. Killzone good overall but campaign can get dull with stupid AI and 3 sites ( Eurogamer, IGN. Polygon ) say the best launch title is Resogun, a 2d shooter? to say I'm a little disappointed is an understatement.

It is done to personal tastes Old Timer. Look at the person who reviewed it and then look at his previous reviews if you care about them

@ Maho ... Totally agree, all down to personal taste but I can't help feel a little disappointed ( Not saying 2d shooters are bad ) when 3 well known sites say a next gen consoles best launch game is a 2d shooter, maybe wrong on my part but I was hoping for a little more on launch but the games will come.

It seems polygon seems to want to get some more traffic to there site with the 4/10 for Knack and 5/10 for Killzone.

Not sure why I even bothered linking to Polygon to be honest, just for balance really. It seems to me they aren't very consistent though.

Oppps must of read it wrong it must of been the Eurogamer score I saw. Seeing as everyone was giving it 7 or 8s 5 does stand out a bit.

I quickly skimmed the Polygon review for Killzone and at one point they were criticising it for not telling them to use a mounted gun on a drop ship. Surely thats not the games fault that they were too stupid to not use it without being told to.

Getting defensive over the terrible reviews are you now wait till the xbox one destroys all your puny games mwahahahahahahahahaha. On a more serious note I do agree with you it is all down to personal opinion what one person finds terrible another may think is the best game ever. It also depends on what type of games the person doing the reviewing likes if you are getting someone who loves shooters to review a platformed it won't work.

plan on giving all these games a chance half these review sites i dont listen to any way lol

The worrying thing is how Polygon can give a review score for the console itself how can you give a review score for a console before its released. I think you could only really give scores for the 360 and PS3 now that most of the games have come out and all the innovations and peripherals have come out. Like there is no way you could score the Wii U or Vita yet as they havent been out long enough.

Its all right I was joking :) It works both ways as well with the fanboys but you are right it will happen. Yeah it seems a tad strange reviewing a new console unless it is just the likes of the interface but then that could all change in a couple of years as well just look at the 360 it looks nothing like when it first started.

The funny thing is Polygon gave Ratchet and Clank: Nexus an 8.5 out of 10. Knack is getting bashed everywhere 4/10 from Gamespot and Eurogamer. This is not good, i'm sooo dissapointed with Knack. I was expecting it to live up to the legacys of Crash, Spyro, Jak and Ratchet...

i'm still getting it, i was thinking of a joke to crack but i just don't have the knack of it.

You must have been knackered thinking of that though in Contrast Killzone does look better but I was trying to think of a good Resogun to get both for the PS4.

I don't generally listen to reviews either. I'm still undecided on Knack. It looks like a good game, but I think it looks a little too 'cute' for my liking. The missus likes the look of it though and it's couch co-op, so I probably will end up getting it

Looks like Knack turned out as mediocre as it looked. Pity, but considering the team making it, this was pretty much inevitable. Glad to see Killzone and Resogun getting such great reviews though... those are the big draw at launch... well... in addition to the best versions of the multiplat games you can get on console obviously :) . Looking forward to the 29th.

I would not listen to any reviewers, apart from me obviously. Buy Knack if you fancy it, I know I am. Also Killzone will be ace, screw the doubters :D

hmmm i dont think Killzone will be anything new, Just a normal FPS shooter with great graphics. I do like the sound of custom MP modes like Halo. These are just Exclusive games though and BF4 is where im going to have the most fun.

I'm not surprised by the mediocre reviews to be honest I'd be shocked if any were getting great reviews, I'm not expecting to be blown out of the water straight away, the criteria for the scoring was probably tightened up as people expect more, just look at how almost every game that gets released now on current gen is nine out of ten, I doubt the Xbox one games will review any better, for a year at least almost all next gen games will play almost exactly like current gen games but with a fancier coat of paint.

Caved in since I decided that since I currently have the money I might as well pick up a PS4 while I have that money. So £20 lighter and managed to secure a day 1 console. EASIEST PRE-ORDER FOR A CONSOLE EVER! Dunno what game I'll go for tho. Downright refuse to pay extra for games I didn't want on the PS3. So I guess it leaves me with Knack. But Mario 3D World is out the same week and Braveley Default the week after

As some one on IGN pointed out "Polygon aka: Vox Media aka: Microsoft Media says it's a bad game when nearly everyone else likes it." Could be why they are so negative. They have the Last of Us 7.5 too.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
7.5 is not bad though but personally I would have give The last of us an 8 maybe an 8.5, still feel as though everyone should make their own minds up.

Not looking so good for Knack, if I were getting a PS4 I would still give it a go. There are games with lower ratings than that that i've enjoyed more than games with 8/10 ratings. Unforunately a lot of people will pass up this game because of the reviews.

I would imagine that Knack will be coming to PS Plus in a couple of months anyway (bad review scores plus our Japanese friends getting it free at launch in February). So if your now unsure if its for you just wait a bit & you'll be able to find out soon enough.

If anyone is looking for a game, Argos are offering Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition for £23.49 on the PS4.

Great price but at the moment they are not letting me pay for it so could be an error.

After seeing how poorly and negative Polygon has been reviewing certain PS3 titles, I'm not surprised they've review everything so lowly. Shame Knack's getting such low reviews but I still plan to give it a shot and decide for myself.
Zombieflamingo's avatar
Zombieflamingo 3 years ago
It is a good price but like Bindiana says can't order just now so it may be a mistake however you also can not order the Vits, 360 or PC version of the ultimate edition so it may just not be updated yet if its a new deal.
Zombieflamingo's avatar

It depends on how Polygon view a 5 if they see 5 as being average (which it is) then I would take it as the same as the 7 and 8 reviews as that is what the majority of people think is average now which is stupid as that should be for the really good games with only the absolutely amazon games getting a 9 or a 10. I would have to read more of the reviews to see. I also feel that you should judge the game yourself as its the only way of really knowing if you enjoy it or not. I am hoping there will be a demo for Knack to try either on launch or not too soon after.

I ordered the argos deal earlier today without a problem. Might have noticed the mis price.
