  • 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.

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.

  • Summary: It would be very easy for the average person to take one look at Stranglehold and write it off as a Max Payne rip-off. That's because, in a sort of roundabout way, it is. Midway and John Woo's video game sequel to the director's classic Hong Kong action flick Hard Boiled borrows very liberally from...
  • Pros: Guns, guns, guns!, Environments blow apart beautifully, Tequila's got a good number of effective moves and abilities, Solid voice acting, PS3 special edition includes <em>Hard Boiled</em>
  • Cons: Gameplay does fall into repetition after a while, Some of the dynamic portions of the environment are more trouble than they're worth, Short single-player mode, Multiplayer is weak

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Spesso si accusano i videogiochi di non avere un’atmosfera coinvolgente, ma a volte queste voci vengono smentite da titoli su cui nessuno scommetterebbe un soldo, come nel caso di Stranglehold, nato dal genio di Jhon Woo e trasformato in videogioco da Midway Games.
