Watchmen: The End is Nigh Part I Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Watchmen: The End is Nigh wins the award for the oddest Gamer Score point totals for Achievements ever. 8 points? 11 points? While some of the scoring is paltry for what are some pretty tough tasks in Watchmen: The End is Nigh , there are a few 36-point (again, ??) hits that make completing the game—and the Achievement list—worth your while. Here’s a look at the entire lot of Achievements: Psycho—Complete the game in Rorschach mode.

Violent but philosophical brawler inspired by the film.

Common Sense Media
11 January 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this violent brawler based on characters made famous by the graphic novel and film of the same name is not intended for children. The hand-to-hand combat is exceptionally brutal. Blood and teeth fly through the air, bones can be heard breaking, items like crowbars and bottles can be used to devastating effect, and slow-motion finishing moves are extraordinarily vicious. The game also features overt sexuality.

Watchmen: The End Is Nigh (Xbox 360)

27 November 2009
  • Excerpt: If there exists a comic series more grisly, brutal or morally undecided than the Watchmen series, I don’t think I want to see it. Alan Moore’s vision of a world with superheroes is a bleak place, filled with masked vigilantes combating what crime they can and a super-powered being dealing with his own existence. Unlike the worlds of Spider-Man and Superman, there are no moral absolutes.
  • Pros: Solid combat system, excellent lighting, gritty levels
  • Cons: Little replay value, very limited co-op, cliché story

Watchmen: The End Is Nigh

True achievements
17 November 2009
  • Conclusion: The story is relatively boring with the same concept in which you fight bad guys at every door or passage way you have to take but with a positive note there are comic segments in which the story is told and their is some funny expletive dialect in which you might be laughing or you might be like "is that what I think he just said".

  • Excerpt: Remember that terrible overpriced download-only Watchmen beat 'em up that came out around the time the movie hit theaters? Now it's packaged with new levels and released at retail in a box. The PS3 version is $50 and includes the movie, and the 360 edition just has the crappy game for $30. The previously released ''Part 1'' follows Rorschach and Nite Owl's pre-film timeline fight against waves of reskinned identical enemies in boring and repetitive locations.

Watchmen: The End Is Nigh

5 March 2009
  • Excerpt: A groundbreaking graphic novel with an extraordinary story...made into a button-mashing beat-’em-up? It sounds like a lame angle for a licensed game, but the Watchmen game is an unusual case. Unlike the recent film, it distills the comic’s marvelous complexity into a core element — and the result is oddly appealing. That element is violence — an aspect of the graphic novel that rocked readers back in 1987 and saturates this Arcade spinoff.
  • Pros: + Street-brawling combat is fun, gleefully violent., + Great graphics for XBLA; enjoyable co-op.
  • Cons: - No online co-op; way overpriced; blah ending., ? Can we please play as Dr. Manhattan in future episodes?

Watchmen: The End Is Nigh (Xbox 360)

Crispy Gamer
4 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Now, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer Deadline Studios offer Watchmen: The End Is Nigh -- a $20 digital release connected to the movie. Two days before Zack Snyder's big-budget adaptation of "Watchmen" opens nationwide, what will fans who want to take control of Rorschach and Nite Owl get in the downloadable title? At best, a mixed bag.
