The lights are on
Years before Arkham Asylum blew Batman fans away with its treatment of the character, Volition attempted to give a similar treatment to The Punisher. While it wasn't a massive success, it's hard to deny that the game captures the spirit of the hyper-violent revenge story. We decided to revisit the Saints Row developer's PS2 title for this week's Replay.
Watch below to see Andrew Reiner, Jeff Cork, Bryan Vore, and myself seek revenge.

After payday this is my favourite day of the week
Never did find a copy of this.
It's interesting how close this game's mechanics are to Saints Row 1 and 2.
It's been ages since I watched a replay... Maybe even a whole week.
Great replay guys, and Dan, that throw truly was amazing; you have achieved something great today. I remember playing this game when I was younger and loving the brutality of it, to bad they had to censor the overly extreme parts. Yet, it still looks like it has held up for its mindless fun.
Oh man, I forgot about this game. Brutal as hell, lol.
I liked this game a ton. It was a bit over-violent, but that would make it consistent with the source material. Hell, I still play it from time to time.
One of my favorite games of all time. This got me into The Punisher and comics in general.
That was great!
That was pretty awesome. Except for the roulette; those character models ruined my Saturday.
This really makes me want a new punisher game like this. That interrogation system is so awesome.
Let Dan do the Super Replay, Reiner!!!! PLEASE
