  • Summary: Watchmen: The End is Nigh Parts 1 & 2 combines the two Watchmen game episodes to further explore the origins of Rorschach and Nite Owl. Watchmen: The End is Nigh Part 1 follows Rorschach and Nite Owl as they track down the evil Underboss, who has broken out of prison and set his violent thugs loose in New York City. The city needs saviours and only masked vigilantes will answer the call. Watchmen: The End is Nigh Part 2 delves further into the partnership of Rorschach and Nite Owl before the hero-banning Keene Act. In Part 2, Rorschach contacts Nite Owl to get his help in solving the case of a missing girl, Violet Greene. Along the way Rorschach uncovers that a woman from his past is involved with the disappearance, leading to a conflict of interest between the partners. New installment of Watchmen mythology: Set more than a decade before the events of the feature film, the two long-form, episodic video games help to develop the backstory between Nite Owl and Rorschach, and leads fans right into the film. Two characters: Play as two distinctive Watchmen characters with unique abilities. Rorschach is a feral, streetwise fighter who can disarm enemies to use their own weapons against them. Nite Owl is a refined fighter who uses martial arts expertise and high-tech wizardry. Diverse array of advanced combat moves: Take on as many as twenty enemies at the same time using each character's unique fighting styles, just like in the film! [Deadline Games] Expand

  1. These two episodes boast brutally entertaining combat, but repetition dampens the excitement after a while.
  2. While it certainly makes its mark visually, beneath the gorgeously moody stylised graphics and brutal gore, it's a pretty repetitive, by the numbers beat 'em up.
  3. 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.
  4. Parts 1 and 2 of Watchmen: The End is Nigh is a flawed and repetitive action game that could have been a lot better considering the game has more than enough brutal brawling action. It also captures the feel of Alan Moore’s brilliant graphic novel but this alone can’t save the game from being too mediocre.

    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. If only more time were spent making the gameplay as exciting as the look and feel.
