The Review Busters
30 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Stranglehold will make you believe that Hollywood directors can create good video games. John Woo's first video game will have you interested in its story, but you will mostly enjoy the game play.

  • Excerpt: While I would refrain from calling Stranglehold an original property, it’s still nice to see a game that likely already has a cult following without already being an established game franchise.

PS3 Review - 'Stranglehold'

WorthPlaying
24 March 2008
  • Summary: A spiritual sequel to Woo's action masterpiece, Hard Boiled, Stranglehold allows gamers to play a John Woo-directed action blockbuster movie. Dual-wielding and stunt-laden gunplay combined with massive destructible environments ensures that Stranglehold will be a true tour-de-force.

Stranglehold (PS3)

Crispy Gamer
30 January 2008

PSX Extreme
29 September 2007
  • Excerpt: When was the last time gamers were treated to a balls-out action game with mindless gun play, bullet dodging, and sense enhancing abilities? Probably Max Payne 2.
