Watchmen: The End is Nigh is the game based on the graphic novel and the movie of the same name but will you want to play it ?
Watchmen The End is Nigh is a prequel to the movie where you get to play as either two characters, Nite Owl or Rorschach. The story is simple. A prison break happens and a villain by the name of Underboss escapes and it's up to you to catch him and bring him to justice.
Gameplay is very simple beat em up style, you go through levels and beat up thugs. There is a mini game where you pick locks but it's really bad. Each character has his own special ability as well. Nite Owl has a taser suit which when charged up can inflict more damage on enemies if they touch you. Rorschach has a rage meter, when it gets full you do twice the damage and counter every attack without a press of a button. The fighting mechanics in this game are abysmal. The game get's boring very fast and nothing really changes pace cause every level is the same.
The game looks mediocre at best, the textures are low resolution, the character models are awful, not to mention they are reused almost every level. The comic style cut scenes are very well done and probably the only good thing about this game.
Audio in this game is horrible. The soundtrack is bad. There were many times when the audio would cut out and only come back minutes later. Overall the audio design isn't impressive at all.
The game is overall pretty easy until the final boss battle where there is a massive difficulty spike, where the final boss can kill you in just a few hits and then it's back at the start. But after a few tries you get down what you're supposed to do and it's smooth sailing.
Level design is straight forward. The level is a straight road and you follow it till the end. When you play as different characters you can access the different parts of the map cause sometimes you need to split up.
The game is very short, it took me 3,5 hours to finish it. The game has a bit of replayability if you want to play it again after the first time. You can play as different characters and try to collect the collectibles which upgrade your health and special ability.
The game doesn't have many glitches or stuff like that. The only problem is the very stupid AI partner the game gives you. Sometimes you need the partner to open certain doors and it takes forever for him to actually get to you cause sometimes he doesn't follow you into battle.
Overall Watchmen: The End is Nigh is a bad adaptation of the movie and the novel. The game get's boring really fast. Get the game only if you're only a massive and I mean a massive fan of Watchmen or get this game on sale cause it's not worth it at full price. I give Watchmen: The End is Nigh a 3/10
