Watchmen: The End is Nigh - Part 2
WindowsDie Kämpfe in Watchmen 2 machen durchaus Spaß, mit den Kombos und dem Ausweichen bieten sie sogar ein wenig taktischen Anspruch. Allerdings brachten mich die immergleichen Gegner und Umgebungen schnell zum Gähnen. Dazu kommt die kaum vorhandene Story, was bei einer Lizenz wie Watchmen umso trauriger ist. Über die Streitereien der beiden Helden und im Multiplayer-Modus habe ich mich trotzdem amüsiert.

WindowsWatchmen: The End is Nigh 2 is eigenlijk een complete kopie van episode en daardoor juist nog slechter.
Xbox 360Watchmen: The End is Nigh Part 2 isn't as exciting as the first episode, and that one wasn't exactly a smash hit to begin with. The story feels less fleshed out and the combat is as uninspired as ever. If you enjoyed endlessly and mindlessly beating up the same small handful of foes in the first episode, there's more waiting for you here. Might I suggest getting a hobby instead?
WindowsIt's a bit sad that this is how the Watchmen game ends. Even when there is something interesting, like the moment where Rorschach and Nite Owl stop being crimefighting buddies, everything else is just so mediocre. As part of either the PS3 or 360 retail compilation disc that features both episodes together, it's an uninspired nightcap. As a stand-alone download, it's a short rendition of the Watchmen brawler experience that features more low points than high points -- but with an admittedly awesome moment of Rorschach punching a fat pervert.
Xbox 360Despite the game being only three chapters long with off-line co-op, the whole package is quite simply awful, boring and dull, and with it being overshadowed and rightly so by Batman: Arkham Asylum and the slew of fantastic arcade titles we had over the Summer, anyone spending Microsoft Points on this dross is asking for a head examination. Steer clear, because this is the dark side of episodic content and let us hope we don’t see any more like this in the future.
Xbox 360Watchmen Part 2 therefore manages the rather impressive feat of actually being a worse game than its bone-headed predecessor. The gameplay is as leaden as before, but now there's even less of it, and a good chunk of it comes drizzled in an icky misogynist sauce. It's certainly the most unpleasant afternoon's gaming I've endured in a long time. If you can't find a better recipient for your Microsoft Points after the stellar line-up of the last month, you probably deserve every poorly rendered punch and kick coming your way.
