    Has anyone played The Punisher for Xbox or PS2? I've heard some generic good things, but I haven't even been able to rent it yet, it's always been out. Is it worth buying?

    There's a short demo of the game on a CD that comes with one of the XBox magazines (the one with a Star Wars cover, IIRC).

    Dunno about the game, but story is by Garth Ennis, writer behind the highly entertaining 'Welcome Home, Frank' graphic novel. This had a large influence on the movie.

    Here's what IGN had to say about The Punisher for XBox.

    8.0 Presentation
    It's doubtful any game or movie will ever represent the Punisher this well again. The censoring of some of the violence earns a bit of a ding, but otherwise this is a great translation of the comic.

    7.5 Graphics
    Great CG cut-scenes, a perfect Punisher Model, and some fantastic death animations overshadow some of the weaker environments.

    8.0 Sound
    The score is okay, but it's the voice-acting that earns high marks. Tom Jane does a better job in the game than he did in the movie and some of the death squeals will make you smile.

    8.0 Gameplay
    The interrogation system is innovative and some very twisted people spent far too much time thinking of ways to kill people.

    7.0 Lasting Appeal
    There are 16 levels, but none of them are particularly difficult. You can breeze through in a weekend, though there's some incentive to replay just for the fun of executing scumbags.

    8.0 OVERALL
    (out of 10 / not an average)

    8.7 Reader Average
