Summary: Stranglehold for your PC is an action videogame that takes you into a John Woo movie. It is fast paced with great graphics and gun play. The problem is that the game is fairly linear and short. After about 4-6 hours you will be done. If you have a great video card you can crank up the graphics and have a fun thrill ride but you can't use your xbox 360 controller and nor would you want to. The graphics get a 4 out 5 and the A.I.
Summary: This game is full of action, almost too much at some times! There is definetely a challenge no matter which difficulty is selected. Swarm after swarm of enemies come with guns blazing, firing everything at your character. No worries here though, just swing from a hanging light and take out the bad guys in a stylish slow-mo "Tequila Time".
Summary: John Woo's Stranglehold is a game that is very familiar with the people who have played Max Payne or Max Payne 2. The game is very dynamic and the character moves and shooting techniques are very acrobatic. Inspector Tequila can go rail-walking, wall bouncing and leaping in any direction you want to engage his opponents. Nice cut scenes are also in the game and fun animations when you shoot enemies in certain body parts.
Cons: Played only about two levels, got tired of it. Went back to give it another try about one month later; nope, still not very much fun. Ditto a month after that. Walk in a straight line, shoot the bad guys who pop up. This game's concept is so poor that the old game Elevator Action was/is more fun. Please, save your money!
Summary: could've been a great game, some good aspects, similar to max payne, but developers should have put in the option to use the xbox 360 controller, being a gamer that owns just about every console out there, keyboard controls were a bit hard at the beginning but manageable after a few minutes of tweaking.
Summary: This is mindless arcade shooting at it's best. There are plenty of enemies & nearly everything on screen can be destroyed. The graphics are beautiful & the music tracks are nice. This is stress relief. Forget about squads, blind fire, or anything tactical, there is one tactic, kill everyone that moves (except the jazz band). Tequila effects are fun to experiment with, but get old once ideas run out on how to abuse them.
Pros: Beautiful graphics, Gun play at it's best, Destructible environments, Soundtrack well done, Tequila time, zoom, bombs etc. are fun to execute
Cons: Very linear, Strictly mission to mission, Arcade type of game play, Short for 12+ gigs, Tequila effects (above) get old, Online is a ghost town
Summary: If you liked the movie you will like the game. Lots of action and destruction. I give it a 4 only because of the amount of destruction you can do to each battle area.
Pros: Decent graphics, good mission objectives & storyline
Cons: Like someone mentioned before, very linear game play. If you like to roam around and explore this isn't the game for you. I also wish there were more video options other than just resolution and shaders. Also I have yet to see one person create a match online.
