Coming attractions.

Hi guys,

Just wanted to let you know that the next installment of 'More on Moore' should be up tonight. Apologies for the delay, but I was a little distracted last week:


I was busy bringing justice to the streets of 1972 New York alongside Rorschach as the second Nite Owl in Watchmen: The End is Nigh for the Playstation 3. The game is a lot of fun, if a bit repetitive. If you're not into scrolling fight games along the lines of Final Fight you're going to tire of this one pretty quick, but for some cathartic baddie-busting I can't reccomend it enough.

My one real beef was I couldn't fly the Owlship. If they make a sequel solo Nite Owl game (maybe with some fun flashback play to the Hollis Mason days) I encourage the designers to make it so. 'Cause, y'know, they should cater to the one lonely fanboy out there who wanted to fly the Owlship. Obviously.

Please?

Stac

This is the first over all positive review. I guess people were asking too much for a $20 game. And it does look like there will be a sequel.

I know. At $20.00 my expectations were pretty low, but I have to say the design team really hit it out of the park in terms of capturing the mood and the brutality of vigilante justice in the Watchmen style. It's clear there was a lot of affection put into the game, and while it's not a masterpiece it is a fun way to while away a couple hours.

Can't wait to see where they'll go with the sequel. They hung a couple of intriguing guns on the wall during the course of TEIN that I'd like to see then explore.
