We hated every moment of this second combat-orientated Watchmen game. Bad guys get hit. Lots of bad guys. And then blood flies everywhere, and Rorschach punches people in the groin and, like, Nite Owl breaks arms in half or something. A "Rage" meter keeps track of their anger and makes them go crazy when it’s full.

There’s no depth or substance, just acres of mindless combat punctuated with the odd lockpick minigame. Fans of the film will despise this.
