<a href="http://www.gamingexcellence.com/pc/games/646/review.shtml">Gaming Excellence</a> has posted their review of the recently released Night Watch. Giving the game a "terrible" rating of 4.8/10.00, the reviewer wrapped things up by saying: <blockquote><em>In the end, the game just exudes a feeling of sub-average development. The engine, while used well in previous titles, is a poor choice for this game. The linearity of the title is constricting and aggravating when it feels like therea "!s a big city full of Others waiting to be explored. And the a Ustrategya "! aspect of the title alternates between too easy and too pointless. Therea "!s little more strategy to the game than staring at your enemy while you just fire spell after spell into each othera "!s faces. Unless youa "!re a big fan of the movie and the world it creates, therea "!s just no good reason to pick up this game. The worst part is, therea "!s a lot of potential in there to make a really interesting magical strategy game, but little of it is utilized, and instead we get a below-average game that fails to live up to anything. The main reason that the game feels playable in almost any sense is because the engine of the game is good enough to make it work. Aside from that, youa "!ll want to give this one a pass.</em></blockquote>
