Trivia

The car that almost runs over the Punisher has the license plate "ASM 129", which is a reference to the Marvel Comic Amazing Spider-Man, issue #129. This issue is the debut of the character the Punisher. Also, it is a Florida license plate most likely in reference to The Punisher (2004) which is set in Florida, and from which Thomas Jane reprises the role of the titular character. See more »

Why was a sequel to this game never made?
3 December 2009 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

This game was great, one of the better Marvel Comic book games I have ever played. The storyline is very good and surprising as there are other Marvel characters in this one that make appearances throughout. You also have an array of super villains scattered throughout too. The story has the Punisher doing what he does best, taking out the criminals in New York city. You also have some fun along the way as you get to interrogate the scum one person at a time. They have your basic torture methods, then along the way you have special ways to torture people such as using piranha and other very disturbing and fun means. You have the option of just killing them, getting the information you need and letting them go, or getting the information you need and then killing them which is what I did cause I just had to see the violent deaths. There are also many memorable scenes such as the opening as the Punisher throws a dude out the window and another scene where he crashes a funeral in very humorous fashion. The weapon selection is rather good as you would expect with the Punisher and once again I love the inclusion of heroes like Iron Man, and villains like Bullseye and even the Kingpin. The ending made it seem like there would be a sequel, but none has ever materialized as of yet, not even when the newest Punisher movie came out. Which I do not understand, because from what I understand this game was fairly popular.
