Though it may be shallow, overpriced, and likely to disappoint anyone hoping for more weighty fare, Watchmen: The End Is Nigh is ultimately a simple, well-crafted game that will please those looking to dish out some good old-fashioned beatdowns.
the game is availible for DL on PSN lol!!! wow.
Why wouldn't it release? This has been the confirmed release date for awhile now.
Played through the demo with my girlfriend last night. We enjoyed the co-op experience. I kinda wish though that they'd done it fullscreen instead of split-screen, and implemented some kind of mechanism to pull the camera back some and prevent both players from leaving the field of view of the camera, like they did on a lot of older 3D beat-em-up co-op games. But, the splitscreen is cool, too, it allows them to still do the zoom-ins on the fierce attacks without taking control away from your partner. I liked it, and I think I'll pay for it eventually, but not really sure I'm gonna do it right now. Maybe I'll wait and see if PSN does a price-drop on it during the summer or next fall like they often do with games (they did Wolf of the Battlefield 3 last fall, which was a third-party release, so there's hope they'll do it for this sometime too)
And if this demo represents the game, the game will really suck. I check it out after several hours of playing killzone 2 and it seems I went back to the past, kinda like Wall Street. Anyways, I will pass on this game.
Well...I purchased the game yesterday and I'm enjoying it. Yes, it is very, very repetitive but I just love to beat up bad guys. I'm just a sucker for beat-em-up type games anyway. I would love to see a next-gen beat-em-up title similar to the Warriors on PS2. Now that would be awesome.
Whatever, I had fun. This is one persons opinion.
To me the demo felt extremly repetitive. Go to room, kill people, go to next room, repeat. It was not a bad game other than being repetitive though, the controls were fine, graphics decent. There is a group of people who like these kinds of games, so for them it should be fun, simply not my style of game. (Kinda reminded me of NES double dragon for some reason lol)
I was playing the demo earlier, pretty fun, just fun times beating the crap out of people and such
Can't believe they tried to pass this off as a $20 game.
Interesting,same score as Halo Wars.
Just saw the movie last nite it was brilliant!
