Stranglehold – Midway Games – Ps3, Xbox, Pc

Kungfoo meets slow mo, gun totting, gangster violence!??? Yes, It’s another brillian John Woo idea!


Stranglehold is the sequel to John Woo’s 1992 film – ‘Hard Boiled’ and looks fantastic!! It’s set in Hong Kong, where a policeman has gone missing. everyone is bewildered by his disappearance. Then they get the ransom note…

In Stranglehold, you can earn these style points when you kill someone (perferably a baddie) in a really stylish way, like diving slow mo off a balcony while taking out goons or riding on a trolley down a corridor whilst firing a machine gun and (here’s the cool bit)there is this move where you spin a round firing a machine gun over and over till everything in the rooms dead!!! NICE!!!!

The areas in the game are nice and detailed, but you won’t really be paying attention to it because your fighting for you life and most of the time the real detailed thing your looking at gets blown to peices.  Yep – there’s never a dull moment in the game, which usully a good thing but not in Stranglehold. This is because YOU CAN’T GET A BREAK!!!!

The game tires you out very quickly so you can’t play it in long bursts. This is a pity so I’ll rate it as…



-TIRING but brilliant!!!
