I started playing this last night and so far it's nothing but badass. The combat is fluid and while it's limited, there is a level of skill to the timing and handling of the bad guys. The reverses and finishing moves are great; nothing better than snapping necks and arms like twigs. The best part of the game is being able to play as Rorschach. I'm sure Nite Owl II is cool too, but Rorschach's style of fighting is brutally awesome.

The graphics are very good and the both the environments and character models are beautifully detailed. The storyline is presented in cutscenes that look like they came straight from the graphic novel. The music sets a good ambiance and is nothing more than it needs to be. The dialogue is great and as some one mentioned earlier, the Rorschach one-liners are great.

I really enjoy this game, it reminds me a lot of Final Fight; which was my arcade game of choice as a child. Cruising the mean streets, dispatching waves of baddies with bare fists and the occasional dropped crowbar. There's nothing complex about the game, it's just a great beat-em-up; a better version of classic games like Double Dragon, only featuring one of the baddest ass characters ever, Rorschach.

For $20, this looks to be one of the best additions to my gaming collection. I'm just glad I didn't drop $20 on the first episode when it was available for download back in March. I'd have buyers remorse like a motherfucker.

Yeah, if I had a PS3, I would have definitely gotten that. Is it the Director's Cut? I've been meaning to create a topic about how awesome the extra footage in the Director's Cut made the movie. Stuff that was missing from the book but came to almost full realization in the extended scenes.

Fucking awesome.

I don't know why I didn't know about that bundle before, it's like not advertised at all.
The only way you would find it is if you wanted to buy the disc version of the game.
