Watchmen Video Game Prequel

watchmen Warner Bros. announced Wednesday it will release an episodic downloadable video game developed by Deadline Games that will prequel next year's big-screen adaptation of the "Watchmen" graphic novel pegged to the film's March debut (AP).

This is an interesting idea.  I am not sure exactly how this will work out in real world.  I hope they are able to pull off the story elements and especially the game play and cost.  Deadline Games is developing the game for the Xbox 360, PS3, and the PC.

This is an interesting idea and it could really help bring people into the setting, but if the quality of the game is on par with most movie related games, it could have the exact opposite effect.
