One of my favourite side-scrollers
7 October 2005 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This is better than any other arcade beat-'em-up I've ever played. It has the style and sophistication of games such as Streets of Rage, but as it was made for the arcade and not a console it lacks any real storyline. But it has plenty of nice features like the "bang" and "whack" appearing on screen, and plenty of special moves like dropping grenades or executing special hyper-kicks if basic button combinations are pressed (i.e. jump & punch; double-forward & punch etc.). Would be great for the GBA, and is still worth your money if you can find it in an arcade! The Punisher looks just as he did in the original comics, as does Nick Fury, so it gives the real 'old-school' feel to the game. It is great to play with a mate as both Castle and Fury have very similar basic moves, yet still relatively different special moves. Plenty of thugs to take out, and at certain points in the level you will pull out your trusty Colt .45 sidearm, and with an unlimited supply of ammo you can blast away all your enemies - a short refreshing break from constant hand-to-hand fighting. All in all an excellent game, and not one to be missed if the opportunity arises!
