Watchmen: The End is Nigh Complete Experience (PS3) Review
3 September 2009
Summary: I came into Watchmen expecting a decent beat-em-up that I could pick up and play for a few minutes and get a good amount of enjoyment from. For once in my life, I was completely wrong. While Watchmen actually does provide for some interesting moments as a brawler, it requires more than just a few minutes to get into.
Watchmen: The End Is Nigh Complete Experience Review
24 July 2009
Excerpt: The first episode of the Watchmen game was a short beat-'em-up that starred Nite Owl and Rorschach, two of the masked heroes/vigilantes featured in the movie. Punching and kicking your way through wave after wave of goons was enjoyable, thanks to the great animation and simple yet powerful moveset. As well-crafted as it was, repetition crept in and made the game a fairly shallow experience.
Pros: Varied arsenal of attacks, Animations have a great sense of impact, Resonates well with Watchmen saga
Cons: Still no online co-op, Can get repetitive, Bad value for anyone who already owns any of the components
