Terrible movie, so so games, but not a bad price. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't have it.

So the movie was bad....yet the games were so so yet you'd still tell people to get it?

The general census is that the games were bad and the movie was decent/good. I saw it in the theater and got this at BB on clearance for $15 like a year ago or something.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

nice post joker! cheapest been reported yet..my only comment is be prepared for a smashed set when ordering from online. Mine came all smushed from Newegg, but I think I got it straighted out ok..

oh and movie: decent, good, but long. The beginning is the best. the game: typical beat-em-up fare, gets very repitive; sick looking graphics though.

Worth it for the movie alone. I picked up this set at Best Buy on clearance awhile back for $10, and I got my money's worth. The games aren't terrible, just pretty mediocre, but they're kinda fun for under $10.

How can you say the movie was terrible? As a long time graphic novel fan I loved it. Yes the ending absolutely ruined the movie but up that that it was great. Simply the best we could have ever hoped for imo. Check out the super extended version sometime if you are a fan of the franchise it really helps the film feel more complete.

I head the game was terrible but for that price I think I'm willing to bite. I already have the UBER BR CE and a regular dvd version of the film so it'd just be the game that I could make use of.

I grabbed this last year during some sale for like $15. The movie alone is worth the cost as the standard DVD is probably still $20 or so. I thought the movie was good but I haven't even tried playing the game yet.

My local BB in DE is selling this game for $7.99 for the 360. Might swing by tomorrow and pick it up.

7.99 is a decent price, but I don't think the 360 version comes with the movie...I could be wrong but if my memory serves me correctly, it's just the 2 games.

I didnt even realize the plothole of Bubastis until my friend asked during the movie. Thats why changing the ending was very stupid.

Never read the comics but i loved the film. If you could play as Silk Spectre i'd be all over this.

I never was that big of a fan of the comic. I was more of a Quantum and Woody guy.

Not sure if I should comment about the details of the comic ending as the above post is incorrect about it. Might want to reread it!

Yeah thats not how I understand it thepik. Like I said, how would you explain Bubastis with the movie ending? It was a bad move to change it.


The book was so much better. Great art and style to it with the 9-panels I believe. Just a great story told very well.

There's a more accurate brief telling of the essentials of the ending for you. Any more questions?!

Oh, and thanks OP decided to snag the game and toss it in my backlog.

Pik please just go back and reread the story. You've missed the point.

I really don't want to go into any further detail/explanation for fear of spoiling it for someone who might curiously read the spoilers. I'm done if you want further explanation PM me. Although I can't imagine why you would. It's really not that hard to understand.

Seriously, how could someone rate this deal as one star? If you don't like the movie, that's fine, don't buy it. But the movie BR plus the two questionable beat-em-ups for $12 is a great deal. I'd jump if I didn't already own the movie BR. Thanks OP, and I did my best to bump up the thread rating!

I don't understand why people get so defensive in regards to the change of the ending.

I understand the parallels of the comic book ending and the sub plot of the

however the film took out that sub plot entirely so it wouldn't make much sense to have it appear out of no where, it would seam a bit silly (in my opinion at least).

The game that comes with this really sucks; a very stale and monotonous beat-em-up that doesn't even come close to capturing the spirit or tone of the film. Don't expect to be playing it to enjoy it, unless you value getting a few extra trophies or something. Basically, if you buying this, you're paying $12 for the Watchmen movie on Blu-ray, with packaging that's kinda bulky and ugly.

Never read the comic, but thoughly enjoyed the movie. Essentially I'm paying 6.50 each for a BR movie and 2 downloadable games. And with the $20 promo credit from LBP2, I get it for free and change. How could I go wrong? :)

I dont know why, but I am actually considering this. Its cheap and the environments/graphics are decent enough to work through without using too many brain cells. And I have credit...that certainly helps to impuls buy.

The games are monotonous, but the final level of the second game is something that is worth seeing. All the rest of the levels from both games have only male enemies. But the final level of End is Night pt 2 has a bunch of female enemies and there are specific kill animations for them. And they're incredibly brutal. To the point of being laughable.

Up to $16.71...somehow this makes the whole thing less palatable...

Great movie, terrible games. Can't believe anyone would see this the other way around.
