Grammatically improper, we know, but we're big fans. Couldn't resist. And as big fans, we can't help but look at these screens and furrow our brows. Just a little.
Prequel to the events of the comic's main story arc or not, it's tough to see the characters and universe of Alan Moore's masterpiece broken down into simple beat-em-up characters, complete with health and "rage" bars.
Then again, that's probably our inner (well...outer) comic book nerds over-thinking the whole thing! The world needs more cheap, simple beat-em-ups, and if developers Deadline Games can provide us with one, we'll overlook the strip-mining of the canon and characters and happily mash our buttons to within an inch of their miserable lives.
Or at least try to.
