  1. Having the games and the movie on a single Blu-ray disc is probably the only missing "feature" of the Watchmen: The End is Nigh The Complete Experience package, although I understand the reasoning behind splitting them up.
  2. Fun, but it’s a bland, vanilla sort of fun.
  3. The mandatory movie pack-in makes this shallow yet brutally entertaining action game a questionable value.
  4. If you enjoy making fun of bad movies with friends, the co-op mode might provide you a gaming equivalent, but that’s all it’s good for.

    A bundle of the two Watchmen games, that have been released on the PlayStation Network before. g It is only interesting for the fans, because the game isn’t very good. Poor audio and graphics, and the gameplay is a little bit too basic.
  6. Watchmen: The End is Nigh - Parts 1 and 2 is a decent looking game that is fun for a while, but ultimately it's let down by its repetitive nature. Easy pick-up-and-play and a two-player splitscreen mode can't save this rather shallow experience.
  7. 50
    It's a shame that Watchmen: The End is Nigh is just flat out boring because the game looks sharp, has some well-executed cutscenes and comes with a great license.

    Decent, mindless fun kind of game. It's repetitive, but it can be fun to play with another person. Reminds me of the old school beat Decent, mindless fun kind of game. It's repetitive, but it can be fun to play with another person. Reminds me of the old school beat 'em ups of the arcade era (Final Fight, etc). Not much depth, and overall pretty average - but I think it's alright since I didn't have huge expectations to begin with. Plus, it came with the Watchmen DVD - a great but lengthy film. Expand
