  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] It's June 1977, and any day now the passage of the Keene Act will outlaw all masked vigilantes not sanctioned by the government. 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.] Collapse

  1. Just as enjoyable as the last game. If you like beat-em-ups then this is worth a pop.
  2. As a Watchmen fan, it was impossible for me to not enjoy this game. For anyone else, however, there just isn’t enough substance to warrant the ridiculously overpriced cost.
  3. Watchmen: The End is Nigh Part 2 (and Part 1) could only be enjoyed by fans of either the book or movie. I don’t see how someone who isn’t remotely knowledgeable of Watchmen could enjoy these games, especially Part 2.
  4. No difference between part 2 and part 1: boring, dull and short.
  5. Over in just two to three hours. [Nov 2009, p.78]
  6. 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.
  7. Watchmen Part 2 therefore manages the rather impressive feat of actually being a worse game than its bone-headed predecessor.

    Watchmen: The End is Nigh part 2 is not a brawler I would recommend, the graphics are ok, voice acting is good but sound effects are just ok, controls are good, the story about rape is disgusting and left me feeling dirty after playing this, and there is basically no replay value, all in all i would recommend not playing this.

    Somehow I ended up with Watchmen 1 and 2. My comment? Game is way too short and repetitive. Boring and all kinds of things like that (must be 150 characters). Expand
