Knowledge is Power makes good use of PlayLink to open the door to those more familiar with tapping on phones and browsing the internet than knowing where that Square button is meant to be, and that's its real strength. Outside of that, it has a few other ideas, but ends up as a fairly middle of the road quiz game that's easy enough to put on the telly and your phones for a quick test of knowledge.

Fun on short burst but too repetitive to be really interesting as a party game.

Knowledge is Power is a good quiz game, but it does feel repetitive after a while and should probably be enjoyed when sandwiched between other PlayLink titles

Knowledge is Power is more than just another trivia game, it's a battle of wits and reflexes. The goofy characters and the ridiculous hazards will cause everyone to burst out laughing. Once you start a game, it might not be long before you realize you've played another five.

While it's not as unique or charming as its predecessor That's You, Knowledge Is Power is a solid, fun quiz game for when you've got friends or family around. While it's a little light on actual quizzing, the Power Plays allow for plenty of game-changing moments and inject some tension into the game as everyone scrambles to wipe virtual goo off of their phones and answer first. With another solid game added to its lineup and many more coming over the next few months, Sony's PlayLink service won't be going away anytime soon.

It could have been a fun trivia game to play for a few sessions if it only had a good consideration of pace between rounds and had let us the choice to not use Power Plays to slow down our opponents... and the game.

Modern quiz in a funny retro style, which offers a good array of questions, but offers little variety in terms of gameplay.

It's a simple well-presented trivia game's perfect for quick, bite-sized casual gaming for the whole family. Its questions aren't nearly as varied or interesting as the ones you'd find in You don't Know Jack, but they definitely have broader appeal. If trivia's something you enjoy, and you miss games like Buzz, Knowledge is Power is lot of fun.

Knowledge is Power is a pleasant surprise and a good start for the PlayLink gameplay design for Sony Interactive Entertainment. It's a clever trivia game that uses mobile control scheme well and adds a layer of vicious fun with power plays against opponents. It does move a tinge bit slow, but for the most part it's a solid trivia experience.
