About this game

Developer: Deadline Games
Content Rating: Mature


Part 1 takes place more than a decade before the film's main story, delving into the partnership of urban vigilantes Rorschach and Nite Owl before the hero-banning Keene Act. The game features bloody, visceral combat in rich settings while it explores the crime-fighting partnership of urban vigilantes Rorschach and Nite Owl.

It functions as fan service more than anything else. If there was more meat to this game, the price could be rationalized. Unfortunately, most will rather save their money to see the feature film than to experience an adventure with Rorschach and Nite Owl before the events of Watchmen.

The real breaking point for this innocuous title is the price tag. Yes, Watchmen is one of the best looking downloadable games we’ve seen on a console (even if the lighting takes the murky color palette to nearly opaque darkness), and yes, the voice acting and production values are impressively high-end. Still, paying $20.00 for such a shallow experience just doesn’t seem right

While there’s somewhere about three hours of game to be played (maybe more if you choose to replay the game with both heroes), it basically boils down to the same 30 minutes repeated across six chapters. Still, if your tolerance for repetition is high, or you’re just looking for some mindless beat ‘em up action you can play with a buddy, The End is Nigh could be just what you’re looking for.
