Game description: Enter the mind of The Punisher, a vigilante driven by more than just revenge. In a world marked by corruption, you serve as judge, jury and executioner as you terrorize criminals with their own ruthless methods. Use a combination of physical force and character interaction to coerce criminals into coughing up valuable information and then put them out of their misery with your arsenal of realistic weapons. The Punisher War Journal lets you relive in-game moments, collect items from Marvel's Punisher history, unlock bonus DVD footage and more.

The game's story is a loose mixture of the 2004 film as well as the Vol. 4 (2000) and Vol. 5 (2001) of the comic books. Actor Thomas Jane reprises his role as Frank Castle/The Punisher. The game features many cameo appearances from Marvel Comics characters such as Iron Man, Nick Fury, Black Widow, Matt Murdock (the alter ego of Daredevil), Bushwacker, The Kingpin and Bullseye. Also present are several characters from the Welcome Back, Frank storyline such as detectives Martin Soap and Molly Van Richtofen, the Punisher's neighbors Joan and Spacker Dave, Ma Gnucci, The Russian and General Kreigkopf.
