Great beat-em-up indeed!
7 June 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

This game really needs a re-release on the GBA. It's perfect hand-held fodder. But don't let that put you off if you see it in the arcade. It's a great button-basher, especially if playing with a pal.

In 2-player mode you play as both Frank Castle and Nick Fury blasting your way through loads of the Kingpin's thugs through varied locations with mental power-ups and weapons (guns included). Yes, it's the same old beat-em-up stuff you've seen in countless other games but this time around the comic-book edge and blood spatters make it worthwhile. The graphics are also very cool, mimicking Marvel comic-book artwork and every other time you punch someone the words 'POW!' or 'WHAM!' will flash up on the screen.

You'll have a great time playing this Punisher game. It's probably somewhat overshadowed by the new Punisher movie and game (which is a lot more bloodier and brutal), which means that a new console port is unlikely but I would still love to see this on the GBA.
