7.2 / 10.0

Knack 2 is lacking in a number of areas, but its strengths outweigh its weaknesses. 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.

No Recommendation / Blank

Improvements abound, but Knack's adventures still suffer from a lack of charm.

An experience that feels thin and repetitive in spite of its length and new additions, Knack 2 feels like a palette cleanser rather than a main course.

6 / 10

On a technical level this is clearly a better game than its infamous predecessor, but it's still nowhere near as fun as it should be thanks to its bland design and characters.
