Killzone Shadow Fall

Now that the PS4 console itself has been reviewed by a slew of credible tech/gaming outlets, it’s time we gathered up the best reviews for two of the console’s biggest launch games: Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack.

One’s a futuristic FPS that continues PlayStation’s exclsuive franchise. The other’s a brand new platformer that combines the finest elements of action/adventure games. For those gamers who’ve purchased the game early, you’ll find out if you’re gonna wanna keep these games or trade them in for something more worthwhile.

So which PS4 launch game is worth getting? Let’s all find out by checking out the five best reviews for both games you need to read.

IGN – 8/10

Polygon wasn’t too high on Knack, either. They felt the game’s single-player campaign was nothing special, plus the payoff moments weren’t much of a payoff in the first place:

Knack has too little going on over its 12 hour length. The core concepts are strong – it’s fun to watch Knack grow bigger and smash things. The incredible imagination promised by the dawn of new hardware is on display in Knack. But the moments of payoff come too infrequently to make plodding through another three dozen frustrating enemies any less tedious.

Game Informer – 8.25/10

Knack PS4

Game Informer enjoyed the game’s return to the heyday of high-quality platforming. They also felt the game’s graphics were a big part of this title’s appeal:

Though it’s a launch game for a next-gen system, Knack is almost nostalgic; it’s the kind of game they don’t make that often anymore. As such, it’s not the most innovative or the most visually dazzling game. This won’t be the one you put in to show off your new console to your friends. However, when you’re done with the prettied-up versions of the big franchises, you’ll find yourself wanting to return to Knack. It’s got charm and heart, and offers a whole lot of good gameplay. Ultimately, that’s still what’s important – no matter which generation we’re in.
