Summary: Kind of clunky and not the greatest shooter, but innovative and fun for the time. The interrogations are a lot of fun and just punishing people in the game makes it a blast to play. check it out if you missed this one back in the PS2 era.
Summary: Great action game! Keeps the story line and game play leaning towards the Punisher's true dark nature. Environmental interrogation/homicide(s) become the treat of each level... of course the fire power in the game is plenty brolic, if you need to satisfy your urge for trigger happiness.
Summary: Finally, after abysmal attempts on the Sega Genesis and the Nintendo Entertainment System, THQ stepped up to the plate and cracked a home run with their 2005 incarnation of our favorite anti-hero, Frank Castle...a.k.a. The Punisher. Thankfully, this game is not an origin story - The Punisher is already an established icon, taking out New York City trash in body bags. When the War Journal begins, we realize that this will be more than just your standard shoot 'em up.
Summary: This game is awesome. I had it for X-box before I lost it in a fire, and I had to get it back. As a huge Punisher fan, it's a must for anyone out there like me who's always loved the big white skull. Awesome fact - the "flashbacks" are all from the comic "Punisher:Born" Or at least all I've seen thus far are. Waht a great tie in. If you're interested, the Born collection is availiable on Amazon (where I got it) and it's an awesome read.
Summary: You'd think this game would have been released while the movie was in theaters to capitalize on the popularity. Oh well, better late than never. The storyline is taken directly from the comic, which is another added bonus. Overall the game is excellent. The play control, graphics, story, and fun are all above average. The amazon reviewer says, "It's a decent play, but it doesn't stack up to other run and gun shooters like Max Payne and Psi-Ops.
Finally, a Punisher game that lives up to it's license

Summary: Anyone remember Capcom's Punisher arcade game which was startingly similar to Final Fight? Or how about the light gun shooter released for the original 8-bit NES? To say that those games were lacking is saying it lightly, and thankfully, THQ's new Punisher game lives up to it's license.
