With the release of the first part of the season 2 trailer for Daredevil, which predominantly features The Punisher, I decided to play the arcade game that has The Punisher going up against Kingpin. I don’t remember playing this game in the arcade and that’s probably it wasn’t in any of the arcades I went to due to the excessive violence in the game.

Since the game is a side scrolling arcade port there are only a few levels, which means a lot of enemies in each level available. As in many side scrollers, there are variants and duplicates of enemies, but in this one you can use your gun at parts and literally kill people. You can also burn people with grenades and blow torches or you could use knives and pretty much shank them. In the second level there are cars you can blow up, and what remains is a scared skeleton sitting in the passenger seat. I believe the first boss you beat you put a gun to the bottom of the jaw and shoot them after they give you information, so what I’m trying to say is that this is not a game for arcades where children are.

I got through the game at around 40 minutes, so check it and enjoy all the senseless violence.
