PlayStation Store Update: Hope You Like The Punisher!

Illustration for article titled PlayStation Store Update: Hope You Like The Punisher!

Because the adventures of Frank Castle, better known as The Punisher, is this week's new playable addition to the PlayStation Store. Not a bad way to start the holiday weekend, but PSP owners get the better end of the deal.


That's because a trio of new downloadable PSP games have been added to the store: Capcom Classics Collection Remixed, Mind Quiz, and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Essentials. If you're looking to expand on games you already own, the "Sacktue of Liberty" costume and "Monarch Signature Livery Pack" should liven up your copy of LittleBigPlanet and MotorStorm Pacific Rift, respectively.

Other exciting new North American PlayStation Store debuts await you after this.

Picked up Punisher on a whim. It plays like Quake 3 or Unreal Tournament (which makes sense since it's built with the Unreal engine) ... it's a bit stiff and a bit repetitive so far (story mode consists of comic panel cut-scenes followed up with quake/unreal deathmatch variants like waves or time limit kill X number of foes).

For $9.99 I have a hard time giving it or the devs too much of a hard time ... but it's more of a really polished Unreal mod than a stand-alone punisher game.

If you're a Punisher fan that digs Quake/Unreal deathmatch style gaming it's worth the low cost of admission ... if you're a Punisher fan who is looking for something more entertaining I'd recommend the PS2/XBOX release from a few years back, Tom Jane may not have done Frank Castle justice on the big screen (not really his fault) but he does a great job of voicing the character in that fun/gory action game.

If this one were a full price brick/mortar release somebody would be deserving of some Punishment, but it's not terrible for $9.99.
