SummaryWatchmen Minuteman Arcade Game Review–A Clever Dose of Retro Tie-In
The GoodThe really interesting part about this title is that you play it like an actual video game in a diner, released by Veidt Industries. The game itself is basically a Final Fight-style sidescrolling fighter, where you get to play as either the original Nite Owl or the original Silk Spectre. You roam the streets of New York pounding a whole bunch of similarly-dressed thugs and eventually working your way up to a none too difficult fight with Moloch himself.
The BadAs a game, it’s not much. But as a concept, it’s kind of nifty. It’s the kind of thing that could be fairly easily included as a DVD-ROM option, or maybe even as a straight DVD option. Considering you only have maybe seven buttons to work–punch, kick, jump and move in four directions–a DVD remote could probably handle it. Anyway, give it a try–the price is right, and it’s a sufficiently nifty concept to entertain for at least a few minutes.
