Night Watch: Review @ Pro-G

by Dhruin, 2006-09-07 22:37:00
Another devastating Night Watch review comes from Pro-G, where the score is 4/10:
Let me tell you something I learned in a marketing lesson at University. When creating a movie tie-in game, try and make it related to the movie's plot in some way. Okay, that's a lie. I didn't learn that in marketing, I used my common sense. Most games attempt this cohesion by following the movie's plot as closely as possible, perhaps inserting a few extra scenarios to lengthen the experience or, in the cases of the brilliant Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay and the significantly less than brilliant Enter the Matrix, by exploring the parts of the plot that are not explained in the movie. Night Watch, however, takes the film's plot, as well as the trilogy of books it is based on, goes in a completely different direction, and throws in some archaic gameplay, bland graphics, and dull voice work to hamper an interesting license.
