E3 Hands On – Watchmen: The End Is Nigh Part 2

June 8, 2009 Written by Joseph Peterson


Given how much I loved Watchmen the End is Nigh, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Part 2 at this year’s E3. Many complaints about the first one was that it was too short for the price, which was $19.99. I asked our booth guide what the price would be for Part II and she told me that it is 3 chapters long, and would cost $15 via PSN.

Essentially, it’s a continuation of the first game. The controls, mechanics, graphics all look similar and feel similar to the first title. They really didn’t deviate much at all from that. So if you loved the first then you should definitely give it a shot. If you hated it then stay away, because it is more of the same.

For those that don’t know that much about the title, it plays a lot like an old school beat-em-up. In other words, it’s a button masher with various combos/finishers that your character can execute on enemies. The two games take place before the movie, and there is a demo for gamers to check out if you haven’t yet. This will give you a chance to see if you like the title.

Below is my hands on experience with the title. Enjoy!
