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.

Volition did not "attempt". They succeeded in spades.
Punisher super replay please !!!!
I loved this game on the PS2! This was a game I was going to pass up on, but after pre-ordering a game, not getting my pre-order reward because it was sold out (the good ol' days of Gamestop pre-orders :P), they gave me a demo for this game...and it was so awesome, I ended up buying the game.
Oh for the love of Me!! Stop with the PX 22 ***! I know it's good and all, just....stop!!!
I played a hacked version The Punisher on Xbox with full gore.
Great episode of Replay! This would be an interesting choice for the New Year's Super Replay.
god i loved this game so much, i always killed the peeps in interrogations if my family flashed.... :)
This game was awesome. I got this when I was 16 and played the hell out of it. So many way to execute people; never got old.
I never understood why this game didn't receive a sequel.. One of the best comic games and brutally violent and true to the character. Only a next gen sequel could do it justice. I give Punisher an A+++!
You guys should do a super replay of Winback: Covert Operations
Please make this a Super Replay option. Thank You.
This The Punisher Replay was very entertaining to watch Dan play. There were a lot of funny moments and you guys really were informative and kept the game interesting to watch. Had a good time watching this one! The Roulette was great as well. Had fun watching you guys struggle at times with it. Very difficult looking game.
