Night Watch Review @ IGN

by Kalia, 2006-07-14 03:38:00
IGN has posted a rather lackluster review of Night Watch, the recently released Russian RPG. They are, however, kinder than the IGN users who have slapped the game with an average score of 4.8/10.00. IGN more kindly offered a 6.0/10.00.
With an in-game cutscene engine that doesn't look like it's up to the technological task, and gradually underwhelming combat, Night Watch's strongest point becomes a clearer explanation of the story universe than what was provided in the film -- but that's not exactly what we're looking for here. Plus the game is interspersed with clips from the film that are so abruptly delivered that they border on the non sequitur. And there is some branching gameplay, but you can really choose to take one side or the other. If you liked the film and what to know more about the lore, then the game will provide plenty of interesting information. But the longer you play, the more the gameplay itself becomes an uninteresting hurdle to enlightenment.
Head to IGN for the rest.
