Conclusion: The best thing to say about THQ’s and Volition’s The Punisher is that it more than does its officially licensed entity justice. We see it with so many movies turned into videogames; the games are simply bad representations of good films and/or characters. This is not the case with The Punisher game, which should help propel copies of the comic off the shelves, rather than assisting them in sitting there to collect dust.
Excerpt: Forget Spiderman, throw away your X-men and allow room for what’s setting up to be the best comic book based game of the year, The Punisher. Twelve thugs against one man… really unfair; the twelve don’t stand a chance as they’re torn apart by the most gruesome comic book anti-hero, Frank Castle A.K.A. the Punisher, and that’s exactly what the player gets to do in this excellent 3rd person shoot ‘em up. From start to finish The Punisher is a splendid game to look at.
