The Punisher is the first such hybrid that succeeds, and, as such, is the best comic-based game currently available. It sacrifices a good deal of the original's moral complexity, though not all, and something in the way of depth of plot, but it still provides a fast-paced and refreshing entertainment. I will be very surprised if the forthcoming movie is any more successful at recreating the world of the Punisher than the game is, or if it is any more enjoyable. Paragon Software has successfully captured the spirit and intent of The Punisher comic book, a difficult task for which they deserve high praise. Those problems that the software exhibits are all the sort that could easily be corrected should strong sales make the release of an updated version feasible.
