Generally unfavorable reviews - based on 7 Critics

  2. Negative: 4 out of 7
  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.
  4. 42
    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]

    Kind of liked the movie but knowing how nearly all movie tie games go from bad to worse this game is no exception to rule.The watchword for the Watchmen: The End Is Nigh is, meh. Full Review »

    Watchmen: The end is nigh part 2 does get some parts right. 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. Full Review »

    This game is more like a long demo. 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. Full Review »
