    Quickly repetitive actin, with ultra-violence that soon becomes mundane. [March 2005, p.100]
  2. Play Magazine
    38
    The game, like the movie it was also inspired by, has failed to properly tap into the vivid, dark energy of the comic book. [Feb 2005, p.62]

    I remember this as my favourite game of the year 2005. I do not read Marvel comics, but since I liked most of Volition's previous work II remember this as my favourite game of the year 2005. I do not read Marvel comics, but since I liked most of Volition's previous work I checked this out. I have played through the game three, maybe four times. It's just so... fun. As games should be. What other games let you dual wield M-60s?
    The excellent levels are probably behind this game's staying power. Straightforward, but also not completely linear. I have noticed new things on every playthrough, and especially the enemy reactions are delightfully varied. The only complaint have is technical: low resolution and muddy colours. This game is also extremely brutal, probably up there with the Manhunt series (which I admit to not having played), and it could have raised quite a fuss had anyone cared.

    It may not be the best shooter but it really makes you feel like the punisher.
