Excerpt: Watchmen: The End is Nigh (PlayStation Network) Tapping into the vein of a comic book opus, Watchmen: The End is Nigh faces odds nearly as insurmountable as the ones shouldered by its big screen brother.

Pros: Enjoyable array of different attacks, Lively animations pack a punch, Impressively detailed environments, Dramatic lighting
Cons: No online co-op, High price point, Can get repetitive
Summary: 2009 lijkt een goed jaar te worden voor de fans van de DC Comics. Games als DC Universe Online, Batman: Arkham Asylum en Watchmen: The End is Nigh bevatten allemaal de optie om in de huid van een superheld te kruipen.
