Yes, the game is pretty much a button masher, but for a 40 year old dude like me, that's fine; I don't want to spend hours learning mutliple button combinations and special moves. I played the PS3 demo and enjoyed the atmosphere of the game.
The Director's Cut of the film is on 1 DVD and the game and additional features from the film are on a separate DVD.
The special features on the game disc are the same ones included in the 3 disc Blu-ray set. The only thing you don't get is the digital copy, which would be in standard definition only anyway, so no big loss.
*Here is an interesting point with this set* The bonus features on the game disc will play on your standard Blu-ray DVD player! I tried it in my Samsung unit and the menu comes up and they play perfectly.
So, if you think you want both parts of the PS3 game and the director's cut of the film, I think this set is an OK deal. As a small bonus, you also get a poster featuring Rorschach and Nite Owl and a fold out Watchmen Timeline taking you through key points in the Watchmen storyline. Neither is very impressive, but they are exclusive to this set as far as I know. The case is a standard 3 sided fold-out with a disc on the left and right panels and a slot containing the inserts in the center.
The games included are the two brawler games released as down-loadable content. These games look absolutely awesome, but the all brawn and no brains style of game included is only passable. The proceedings start off rather awfully as you begin with just a simple fast but weak and slow but painful punch combination, and a simple but rather useful dodge. Things get a bit better as you gain more punch combos, brutal finishers and throwing moves, but the action is never truly elevated over the 'walk in, clear a room then rinse and repeat' formula established in the first level of the game.
Non-Watchmen faithful will probably find the games mockingly awful, but as a Watchmen fan I found myself to be a cheap date for this game. It was just short enough to keep me playing, and was a perfect palate cleanser after digesting the all beef buffet that is the Watchmen movie.
The Director's Cut Blu-Ray is like a bundle of Watchmen goodness that keeps on giving. It is the Everlasting Gobstopper of Watchmen viewing. Not only is the possibly too epic for the theater cut of the movie much more of a pleasure to watch in the comfort of your own home, but it is filled to the brim with extra features that are actually worth viewing for a change.
Zach Snyder's 'Extreme Experience' might sound like it was named by the PR people for Mountain Dew, but it is a great way of getting a first hand walk through the Watchmen. It is like having Snyder in your house telling you all about making his movie, and the love that was put into this film by all involved really shines here.Read more ›
The game play starts out slow, Nite Owl and Rorschach start with very basic moves but quickly works into a great variety of attacks and defensive moves that has the characters taking on hoards of people with relative ease. Each character collects tokens and find hidden areas for their upgrades. It is a challenging game with some decent replay value, the controls are easy but the camera angles, not so much, but if you can get over that hiccup then the game is a nice look at the Watchmen's world and some of the altered parts of it that made the history of their world so radically different from ours.
Overall, I'd say it's a good deal and great buy.
The graphics while good, are a bit on the drab side, the collission detection is a little lacking, and sadly, the story is non existent.
As for the movie, I really liked it. It fits well with the comic and was entertaining.
