These two episodes boast brutally entertaining combat, but repetition dampens the excitement after a while.
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.
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.
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.
