The Punisher PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: The Punisher is one of the darker Marvel comic book characters, and with good reason too. After his family is slaughtered, Frank Castle became the Punisher to teach those who oppose him a lesson or two, often involving painful looking objects. It’s ideal source material for a videogame then and THQ and Volition have seen this grisly potential. The Punisher is an action game of the generic kind.

Intriguing but extremely violent shooter.

Common Sense Media
31 December 2005
  • Summary: Parents need to know that the extreme violence makes this game a poor choice for kids and younger teens, and warrants a discussion for older players. The star rating given this game is based on quality of gameplay within this genre and is not an endorsement of the violence in the game.

The Punisher Review

6 December 2005
  • Excerpt: The Punisher presents a peculiar moral conundrum. Having successfully extracted the necessary information from some hapless meat grinder soldier (not surprising given the extremely large snake salivating a mere foot from his head), three options present themselves to the main protagonist of this uninspiring story, one severely pissed off Frank Castle. 1: 'Quick-kill' him.

  • Excerpt: He may be just another moody man in a trench coat, but Frank Castle deserves your respect – he was dispensing comic-book justice when Max Payne was still just a glint in the milkman’s eye. And when you see some of the inventive ways he has of applying blunt trauma to his enemies, you’ll quickly pay your dues. The Punisher looks at first glance like any other generic shooter with a license.

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: WARNING: This is an extra warning to parents and gamers unfamiliar with The Punisher . This is not similar to Spider-Man, the X-Men, or the Hulk. This game is rated Mature for Blood and Gore, Drug References, Intense Violence, and Strong Language. The Punisher is neither a “Hero” nor a “Role Model.” That having been said, we will move on to the review. The graphical style of The Punisher is realistic and has a very gritty feel.

2 March 2005
  • Excerpt: If you're looking for a night of good, clean fun, The Punisher is probably not where you want to start. This dark conversion of the comic-turned movie is another example of comic book plotlines making it to the small screen, and the result is a game that lets you torture bad guys until they spill the beans, but barely interact with pretty much anyone or anything else.
