THE BEST MARVEL CONSOLE GAME EVER PART 10: THE PUNISHER (2005) (XBOX)

I’ve stated in the past that one of the sure ways to make a great comic book game is to marry a particular license to a pre-existing game franchise that just simply fits: Batman Begins for example is simply Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell with a Batman skin; Batman: Arkham Asylum and Acclaim’s Shadow Man have a lot in common with Nintendo’s Metroid Franchise and THQ’s The Punisher, the…

THE PUNISHER IN VIDEO GAMES: PLAY OR PASS

Today’s the day that Daredevil returns to Netflix for its second season and I like many, couldn’t be more excited.

Man, that cover, just…wow. The Punisher looks like he’s going to jump off the box and swallow you whole. Before I get into talking about this game, I’m going to lay out some things. This game is a conversion of an arcade game, however growing up, I didn’t have a local arcade, the closest was…

REVIEW: THE PUNISHER (XBOX)

  Existing as I do now in the future, I can’t think of anyone I would rather make a Punisher videogame than Volition. This is the studio that put itself on the map for making EVERYTHING destructible in the Red Faction shooter franchise, and would eventually go on to make the crazy over the top…
