Did You Know?

Trivia

A useful game exploit can be found on the 'Funeral Home' level. If the player stands near to the door in the attic section, it is possible to shoot enemies in the back as they enter. They will spawn endlessly allowing the player to accumulate vast scores thanks to the multiplier system which exponentially increases your points during a particularly long kill streak. It is not uncommon for someone to amass hundreds of thousands of points in a single sitting by exploiting this feature. See more »

Goofs

Almost all firearms experience muzzle climb as the result of recoil, yet the weapons used by the Punisher in the game show no such effect. This is more obvious when firing full auto since an entire magazine may be fired in one go without any real effect on the predetermined accuracy of the firearm. See more »

Why was a sequel to this game never made?
3 December 2009 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

This game was great, one of the better Marvel Comic book games I have ever played. The storyline is very good and surprising as there are other Marvel characters in this one that make appearances throughout. You also have an array of super villains scattered throughout too. The story has the Punisher doing what he does best, taking out the criminals in New York city. You also have some fun along the way as you get to interrogate the scum one person at a time. They have your basic torture methods, then along the way you have special ways to torture people such as using piranha and other very disturbing and fun means. You have the option of just killing them, getting the information you need and letting them go, or getting the information you need and then killing them which is what I did cause I just had to see the violent deaths. There are also many memorable scenes such as the opening as the Punisher throws a dude out the window and another scene where he crashes a funeral in very humorous fashion. The weapon selection is rather good as you would expect with the Punisher and once again I love the inclusion of heroes like Iron Man, and villains like Bullseye and even the Kingpin. The ending made it seem like there would be a sequel, but none has ever materialized as of yet, not even when the newest Punisher movie came out. Which I do not understand, because from what I understand this game was fairly popular.
