We can't decide whether the game or the movie has a better chance at becoming quality entertainment, but after watching the debut videos for Watchmen: The End is Nigh, we'd like to think the game is on the right track. Available for only $20 on the PSN, XBLA and Steam, this could be an excellent budget purchase; the action appears to be fluid and engaging. Check out the variety of attacks and the Counter possibilities in this gameplay video, and that may act as sufficient incentive for a purchase. Typically, $60 games based on films are rarely worth the cost, but for 1/3 of the price, Watchmen could be worth your time.
