Watchmen: The End Is Nigh (Xbox 360)

ccgr.org
27 March 2014
  • 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

Violent but philosophical brawler inspired by the film.

Common Sense Media
20 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.

  • 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

gamereality.org
18 December 2013
  • Excerpt: "Aluksi Wathcmen vaikuttaa hyvinkin lupaavalta Xbox Live arcade -julkaisulta, mutta totuus iskee viimeistään kolmannessa kentässä, kun huomaa, ettei peli tule muuttumaan paljoakaan. Tarina vierii eteenpäin, mutta samanlaiset taistelut ovat jatkuvia, viholliset juoksevat päättöminä kohti pelaajaa, kentät ovat putkimaisia ja hahmot bugittavat ja kaiken kukkuraksi itse pelin pääsemisessä päävalikkoon kuluu aikaa jo melkein minuutti.
  • Pros: + Aikuismaisuus on säilynyt, + Edullinen ostos, + Grafiikka on nättiä muihin ladattaviin julkaisuihin verrattuna, + Äänimaailma on tunnelmallinen ja musiikki sopivan synkkää..
  • Cons: - ..Mutta siihen kyllästyy jatkuvien taisteluiden takia, - Kentät putkimaisia, - Lyhyt peli, - Kestää noin 42 sekuntia, että pääsee edes pelin alkuvalikkoon, - Vie paljon tilaa kovalevyltä, - Kaksinpeli on tökkivää

“Een korte episodische download”

evilgamerz.nl
6 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Met de release van de film Watchmen kan een game gebaseerd op deze film natuurlijk niet nablijven. Dit keer is het niet een volwaardige game die je koopt in de winkel, maar een downloadable content voor zowel Xbox Live en PSN. Het eerste deel van deze episodische game is nu te downloaden. Wij hebben het bestand van 1,5 gigabyte met zes hoofdstukken en 2 tot 4 uur gameplay ook maar eens binnengehaald om te kijken wat het is.
  • Pros: Coole tussenfilmpjes, Graphics
  • Cons: Gameplay, Besturing, Speelduur

Watchmen : The End is Nigh

11 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Même si Watchmen : The End is Nigh n'est pas un mauvais jeu, ses défauts sont bien trop gênants pour qu'il parvienne à véritablement s'imposer. Malgré une réalisation technique de haut vol pour un titre disponible sur le Xbox Live Arcade et sa bande-son diablement efficace, le titre pèche par sa trop grande linéarité et sa répétitivité.
  • Pros: Les graphismes de qualité, La coopération en local, Les combats sympathiques
  • Cons: Le prix : 1.600 MS Points (environ 20€), Trop linéaire…, … et vite répétitif
