-Fans of the Punisher will love his various punishing ways. A variety of interrogations, weapon-specific "Quick Kills", environmental "Special Kills" do a vigilante good!
-Weapon variety (e.g. shotguns, 50-cal pistols, double-wielding, etc.)
-Story was written by Garth Ennis, probably one of the best "Punisher" comic writers ever. So yes, it's good.
-Body physics are pretty good (Boom goes the dynamite!).
-Unlockable material is okay.
-Slight RPG type elements could be better than to "Purchase scope to increase accuracy.
-Graphics are okay.
-No Police response to activities (ala GTA). This would have added a whole new element and yet another layer of guilt (see below).
-Don't play this like "Hitman". The Punisher is not supposed to be silent.
-Personal concern of enjoying torturing the human-shaped polygons and enjoying it.
-Playing like a wuss and knocking people out instead of "punishing" because it would make God mad.
-Being rewarded for knocking people out INSTEAD of killing them.. Come on! He's the PUNISHER!

It really stands out in the pure enjoyment of it. Towards the end, it gets a wee bit repetitive, but overall it is most definitely worth the rent. It can make a fan of you if you enjoy heavy the darker side of games.
