Here is my first set of Playstation 4 reviews.
Still working on Assassin's Creed 4.

The system review on the PS4 page is pointing to the PS3 instead.

I'm only on the second stage of Killzone, but so far I'm tending to agree. I'm somewhat surprised at the Knack review as even CGR who normally like everything gave it a bad review. I think it's a title I'm just going to have to play for myself.

Interesting reviews. I've never been interested in fps games so Killzone might as well not exist, to me, but Knack looks like it would be kind of fun. I wonder why they had to make the main character so ugly though.

Great review of Knack.  I played it for a few minutes at a demo stand and was impressed with its great controls and simple Crash Bandicoot like platforming.  I was afraid after some of the bad reviews the full game wouldn't be so good. Its hard judging a game from a demo, but it seems like from your review the game is pretty high quality.  You may be right, the reviewers can't appreciate a good simple but effective platformer.  It reminds me of all the reviews attacking Need for Speed the Run because it didn't have enough features.  Did the reviewers forget fun is more important than features?

Its gonna be awhile before I can afford a PS4.  However, by that time, this game will probably be dirt cheap and I will be picking it up.  Thanks for the review.

The Touchpad sounds like an unnecessary gimmick.

i'm not surprised Knack hasn't been getting better reviews, it looks OK but nothing about it really screams "must have" and it just sounds like something that would fit far better on the Wii U.  I don't think it has anything to do with reviewers not being able to "appreciate" it.

For some people more features equals more fun, so to each their own.

Killzone sounds decent, but I can understand your frustration with unclear objectives, I can't tell you how many times i've gotten stuck on a game, then had to go watch a video walkthrough on Youtube just to figure out what to do next due to the game not bothering to explain things very well, it sounds like i'd probably be doing that quite a bit on Shadow Falls.

Critic, in what other original PS4 launch titles are you interested? There doesn't seem to be much interesting (I ignore all those games that are also released for the PS3, like FIFA14, Need for Speed Rivals, Assassin's Creed Black Flag). The only other title that seems interesting to me is Resogun.

Glad to hear that Knack is fun.  It's pretty much the only PS4 game that looks remotely interesting.  

The launch of the Xbox One and PS4 has only proven one thing to me...I've got YEARS of fun on my currently consoles before I have to upgrade.

Fun reviews to read.  Thanks for posting.

Critic, do you have a Playstation Plus subscription?  If you do, I believe you get Resogun for free.  I'd love your take on an updated Defender type game.  At the moment, it would be one of the first games I'd try on the PS4.
