Trivia

Along with the interrogation scenes being censored in black and white and zoomed in when you killed a criminal, the PC version had blood removed from the interrogations as well (most notably in the face smashing and punching interrogations).

Also, THQ cut some rather disturbing quick kills. One involved The Punisher using his knife and plowing it into the side of a criminal's head from behind (you had to have had a shotgun or rifle selected as your current weapon to get it). Another involved The Punisher coming up from behind and giving the criminal a bullet enema (ie. shooting the criminal up the butthole with his gun).

Fanmade patches were created to restore some of these interrogations, along with the gore missing from interrogations.
