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.
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...
Conclusion: That’s pretty much all there is to the game, but it’s done so well I love it! The more people you kill the more you score, the more you kill without taking a bullet yourself the higher your combat multiplier goes up. This rewards you with “style” points – the more you get the more you are rewarded.
Pros: Its just plain fun., Immensely replayable., Rewarding gameplay.
Cons: Definitely not a game for Richard & Judy-watching Daily Mail readers.
