Rorschach has uncovered a mysterious missing person's case. Together with the help of Nite Owl, the pair has set out to find the young girl in Watchmen: The End is Nigh Part 2. Their search takes them deep into the depraved, sleazy corners of the city, and eventually face-to-face with the mysterious Twilight Lady. The seedy underbelly of New York beckons … will you take the call? The journey continues: Rorschach and Nite Owl once again prowl the back alleys of the city in their quest for justice. Play as either character throughout the game. Voice acting: Patrick Wilson and Jackie Earl Haley reprise their roles as Nite Owl and Rorschach from the film, supplying voiceovers for the characters. Game modes: Play in single player or split-screen co-op multiplayer mode and bring justice to the city. [Warner Bros.] Expand

  1. The fights are fun, but the same opponents and surroundings become boring very fast. There's no story to speak of, which is a shame regarding a license like Watchmen. The arguments between both heroes and the multi-player mode are fun, though.
  2. Just like the first entry, this one doesn't try to escape from the simple button mashing, combo street brawler.
  3. Watchmen: The end is Nigh Part 2 is, essentially, the same game. Three new levels, but the same characters, the same moves, and the same price. Not worth on its own, better on the retail disc version along with Part 1.

    As a stand-alone download, it's a short rendition of the Watchmen brawler experience that features more low points than high points -- but with an admittedly awesome moment of Rorschach punching a fat pervert.
  5. It’s hard to see why they ask money for this one. If you want to swing a baseball bat as Rorschach, save yourself $15 and just buy Part I.
  6. Second-rate action game is boring for comic devotees and too easy for fighting game fans. Voice cast from the original movie actors can not change anything of this. [Oct 2009]
  7. Insultingly banal. [Nov 2009, p.100]

The hand to hand fighting is fun and a good change from shooters. If the developer had made it 50% longer, and varied the characters and levels it would be a pretty good game. It's just too short and repetitive. It's a $4.99 game. Expand

I purchased this in the Watchman Blu-ray bundle (movie, 1st and 2nd game). It can be fun playing as Rorshach, except after 5 minutes, the game throws nothing new at you... its the same 3 bad guys with generic environments, over and over until you beat the game. The only sort of 'puzzles' in both games and simply open garage door, roll under, pull lever. Probably best to advoid, you wont be missing anything. Expand

    A nice change from shooters. All the action is physical fighting. I enjoyed that part. It's more like a long DEMO than an actual GAME. I beatA nice change from shooters. All the action is physical fighting. I enjoyed that part. It's more like a long DEMO than an actual GAME. I beat it in 45 minutes of game play. Very repetitive
    Weak Story
    Scenes repeat themselves over and over. Only 3 or 4 of the same characters that are seen through the entire game. I only paid about $2 dollars for it, so I wasn't too upset. I could have been a GREAT GAME, but they need more chapters that are different, stronger story line, more characters. Verity is the SPICE OF LIFE!

    Sincerely,

Local splitscreen co-op is something you sadly don't see very often today and i was thrilled when the game recognized my third party controller without any fuss. The visuals are alright and it is fun to play as the characters from the comic/movie. The rest of the game though is quite disappointing to say the least. The combat system feels stiff and unsatisfying and it gets repetitive really quick. Prepare yourself to fight the same guys with the same boring moves over and over again for that is what you are going to be doing the biggest part of the game. Add that the AI is pretty much broken and you get a pretty worthless fighting-game. From time to time i found the AI standing beside me waving their arms and refusing to attack me. I could literary walk away from the computer and still be at full health when i returned. No stay away from this game no matter the price. I can only recommend it do die hard Watchmen fans and people dying for a cheap splitscreen co-op game. Expand
