Has anyone played this yet? I'm just installing my trial copy now, if it's worth the 12.99 I'm definitely buying it. The graphics look amazing. The reviews haven't been that good from what I've seen. It's apparently repetitive, but I'm still going to give it a try.

Edit;

I've just played the demo, and don't be fooled by the 30minute countdown, you can only play to a certain point. It's definitely fun, I played a Rorschach because I prefer his street style. Nite Owl II has probably got some cool moves too, he relies on gadgets more. You can collect pick up's for new moves, I unlocked a knock down move, Bull Rush, the ability to throw people, and another move, all pretty cool, but it relies on button combo's. The graphics ARE amazing, and it's voiced by the actors from the movie too, another plus. I'd say about 7/10, the kind of game you pick up when you just wanna fucking kick some ass for awhile. At the select character stage there's a "Press Start to Join" so you can play with a friend too, but no online co-op.

Will I buy it? Maybe. But not just now.

Yeah it is a cheap game and you do get what you pay for. See above for my own review. It's nothing magical or spectacular.

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

I wouldn't call it a money making scam, it's just a cheap beat'em'up prequel.

Atleast they haven't put it in a box and charged us 45 for it.

Speaking of that:



It was a shit game. But turn on God Mode and its fun as hell.
Why?
Because it was way too easy to die on it.

And on topic, I saw videos and stuff for TEiN.
For an arcade game I was impressed.
Dont know if I wanna buy it though.

it reminds me of one of those old beat-em-up (or hack-n-slash) games ... i played the demo twice. I'm not sure how i would see any real variations from what i saw on the demo.

wasn't as boring as the other movie games, i sorta would consider it .... but I've juts got better uses for $20

That's the way I'm feeling Envie, I did really enjoy mashing up the cons though.

Tried the demo, thought it was ok. Not worth $20 for a 2 hour beat 'em up game.

I think I'm going to pick it up. I've only heard good things from people who've actually played it.

Sure, it gets repetitive, but so do most games. That's why I have more than one game. Variety.

I just picked this up at Gamestop today for $20 brand new.

I'm hoping good things; I know it's just a Beat 'Em Up but I'm looking forward to it as such.

if it's got some good rorschach one-liners, it might be worth the purchase biggrin.gif... even though it's supposedly a 2 hour affair...

As a Watchmen fan, I know I will enjoy it.

When it becomes boring or too repetitive; I'll put it down and play something else until I'm ready for some more beat em up action. I've played the demo for the first game and didn't mind it at all; I'm just glad I didn't pay to download the first episode; the disc with the two episodes cost me the same as one episode would have.

Even if it's terrible; I should be able to make my money back on eBay. If it's a keeper; I'll let you know.

played the demo to part II, and it just somehow made me want to get it more, but part of me knows it looks like it's just the same repetitive action and it's short, and probably pretty easy - and it was just made to make a quick buck off fans.
when both episodes drop price (preferably to half), i will definitely pick them both up.
