Watchmen: The End is Nigh - Part 2 picks up five years after the events of the first chapter, and after the passage of the Keene Act has outlawed masked crimefighters. Rorschach and Nite Owl II are after a missing girl, and pummel their way through a strip club and mansion to find her. Part 2 features three stages set in new locations, and a handful of new enemy types.
Gameplay is identical to the first chapter, and players must use a variety of attacks and combos to brawl through waves of street toughs. Both characters retain their specific advantages. Rorschach is fast and useful with improvised weapons, while Nite Owl uses power and gadgets. Motion comics again act as bookend cutscenes, and both Patrick Wilson and Jackie Earle Haley lend their voices to the two main characters. The game can be played in either single player or split-screen local co-op.
In the German version, almost all blood effects and the final blow by quick time event were removed. The player also can't attack enemies on the ground. This only applies to the PSN version; the Steam and retail releases are uncensored.
