New Graphics and Animations The detailed graphics and animation are drawn by Dave Gibbons, the artist behind the graphic novel and movie "Watchmen."

The original voice cast has also returned to add new parts for the newly expanded version of the game. All of this adds up to a rich experience. Exclusive Two-Player Mode for the Wii Instead of going at it alone, you can add a second player to the fray in the Wii version. Two cursors show up on the screen, and one player becomes the main player while the second highlights areas of interest on the screen. Working co-operatively adds another dimension to the game and allows the game to be enjoyed simultaneously by two players.
