Had a great time


A great surprise. I had a lot of fun with this game. An interesting and unique use of the Unreal engine.

Stranglehold: Bloodshed Is His Only Option


Review of the Limited Collector's Edition

An experience true to Woo's operatic style and the "Hard Boiled" universe

Some may not appreciate that

All style, very little substance


This game was a rental of a friend of mine, and I got to sit down with it for a few hours and give it a good play through.

animations are solid, and the showdowns are intense and very cool

The game just lacks polish in some areas (the sliding is odd). Not much fun

Stranglehold - A worthy successor to Hardboiled


If you ask the average moviegoer who John Woo is, they might be able to tell you about some of his American films like Face/Off, Windtalkers, Mission Impossible 2 and so forth. But only a few real cinema buffs can say they've seen Woo's original Hong...

loads of action, solid gameplay, great sound effects

short, bland multiplayer, gets repetitive

Entertaining, jaw-dropping explosions

Short single player experience, multiplayer is a bust

Stranglehold - Max Payne Meets Hard Boiled


John Woo Presents Stranglehold goes into the interesting genre of video-game movies that aren't straight adaptations and is actually a nifty piece of work. Even though it only took me a paltry six hours to run through the game and it offers little...

Max Payne + John Woo = awesome

occasionally looks cheap, some framerate issues, only 6 hours long

Tearin' Up Hong Kong on the Xbox360


Stranglehold is based on a John Woo movie named Hard boiled which many of us Hong Kong action movie buffs have probably seen. The plot of the movie -like the plot of this game - focuses on the relationship between a cop and an undercover cop taking on...

John Woo movies meet video gaming in this outrageously violent shoot-em-up

Gameplay is a 3 trick pony. Forgettable Multiplayer
