The Punisher

Thursday, February 3rd, 2005 Leave a comment Go to comments

Earlier this week I finished playing my newest game, The Punisher. It was a really fun game, but it doesn’t take a lot to entertain me. In terms of graphics and gameplay, I’m sure there are plenty of third person shooters out there that are better (like Max Payne), but that doesn’t mean that this one can’t be fun. I think one of the big selling points of this game is the goriness. Even at the end it was still shocking to see some of the things you could do to the bad guys.

I really enjoyed all the cameos and references to other Marvel characters that show up throughout the game. I guess I shouldn’t spoil it anymore than that. Slaughter Mode is an interesting take on on bullet time. I didn’t use it much, but it came in handy at times. Like X-Men Legends they hinted at the end that there would be more to come. Overall, it’s a good game that’s at least worthy of a rental. I’ll probably go back and play it on a higher difficulty one of these days.
