Stranglehold

The Gamers Temple
21 August 2008
  • Excerpt: The integration of Hollywood and the videogame industry continues with Stranglehold, which is basically a sequel to the John Woo movie Hard Boiled. Chow Yun-Fat reprises his role as Inspector Tequila, a no-nonsense Hong Kong cop in the mold of Dirty Harry. A notorious gang has kidnapped a fellow officer, and Tequila volunteers to accept their offer to negotiate his release even though he knows it is an obvious setup.

Stranglehold (Xbox 360)

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. With only seven hours of game play on the easiest setting this game will have you playing it over and over again on the harder difficulty settings, especially if you want all those achievement points.

  • 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.

Gaming Evolution
29 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Though this game isn’t the premier shooter like Call of Duty, it still provides immersive worlds and a great test of John Woo’s world. Since action movies aren’t about substance, but the action itself, this game fits perfectly as a true sequel to the 1992 cult classic. Those gamers looking for something different from the norm, this is your chance to find out why this game has gotten so much media coverage and why John Woo is one of the world’s premier action...

Expert Review

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. Not many other gun-slinging cop-games have managed to capture that same caliber of mayhem that Rockstar pioneered with Max Payne. That is, until now. When we first caught wind of Stranglehold, it was back in 2006, when the game was unnamed and still fairly early in development.

  • Excerpt: John Woo and Chow Yun-Fat reunite for the first time since Hard Boiled to bring Inspector Tequila’s special brand of two gun justice to the streets of Hong Kong and video games. Does the artistic vision behind Faceoff and The Killer make a successful jump from celluloid to silicon? Inspector Tequila is back, ready to take down scores of would-be cop killers, drug dealers, and Russian Mafiosi.

Stranglehold

Fragland
28 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Stranglehold is helemaal geen slechte game, maar door zijn gebrek aan diepgang en variatie, is het ook helemaal geen verplichte koop. Fans van het genre en John Woo-aficionado’s zullen niet teleurgesteld zijn, maar gamers die meer willen dan een simpele, no-nonsense shoot ‘m-up, zijn hier aan het verkeerde adres.
