  1. The engine, while used well in previous titles, is a poor choice for this game. The linearity of the title is constricting and aggravating when it feels like there’s a big city full of Others waiting to be explored.

    Unfortunately, despite offering an eclectic mix of turn-based strategy and RPG elements, the Night Watch game is a clunky mess. [Oct. 2006, p.88]

    There's a thin line between awful and pointless, and Night Watch manages to wobble like a poorly spun top right in the middle, sporadically teetering too far into awful before righting itself, then drifting over to pointless territory. Again and again and again.

    There’s better acting in a preschool production of Equus than in this game. As atrocious as the voice-acting is—and it is unbelievably godawful—the writing is worse.
  5. Your time and money is better spent tracking down "Nochnoi Dozor" on DVD and enjoying it passively because, as an attempt at an interactive experience, Night Watch fails utterly.
  6. The whole package is similar to ready salted crisps: Sure, they'll fill you up and won't leave a disgusting taste in your mouth, but for the same price you can get some salt and vinegar flavour, or perhaps cheese and onion.

    It's a bit shit...Dialogue is laughably bad. [Christmas 2006, p.94]
  8. Night Watch is exciting enough to help you fall asleep... on your watch!

    The whole thing plays out like some budgetware "Turn-Based Combat RPG for Dummies". [Oct. 2006, p.80]

    Rob E is high, and or has the taste of a crack whore in New York. If you enjoyed Fallout, you will want to crucify this "game" with a flaming spear.

    If you enjoyed Silent Storm, or Fallout, but you wanted something more fantastic, here's your game. Good storyline, good gameplay. But If you enjoyed Silent Storm, or Fallout, but you wanted something more fantastic, here's your game. Good storyline, good gameplay. But since its about magic and not weapons, don't expect a lot of equipment. Only 3 character classes too. Full Review »
