Maxim's The Good: "Like its film brethren, the game looks beautiful, especially considering its origins were as a downloadable title. From the character animations to the rotting city surrounding the protagonists, there are obvious indications that there was at least an attempt to not leave out the details, a bad habit you'll find on other movie tie-in games. The Watchmen universe is captured to a T and Patrick Wilson and Jackie Earle Haley reprise their film roles, offering their voice services in bringing Nite Owl and Rorschach, respectively, to life on consoles. The story tying the whole shebang together fleshes out some of the uncharted storylines during the city's Crimebusters era, like The Underboss' escape from Sing Sing. Most who went to see the movie won't really care much for the tangential plot, but fans of the series may appreciate that part of the mythology being addressed."
