  • Excerpt: I could go on for hours about the reliability issues of Microsoft’s Xbox 360, but I’ll limit myself to this introduction. Exactly twenty-five minutes after playing Stranglehold for the very first time, my Xbox decided to give up on me by means of the infamous Red Ring of Death.

John Woo Presents: Stranglehold Xbox 360 Review (Second Opinion)

Console Obsession
2 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Forget Chuck Norris. A bold statement, I know. But compared to Tequilla Yuen, the smart-talking, bullet-dodging death-machine cop of the Hard Boiled Hong Kong action movie, Chuck Norris looks like a wimp.

John Woo Presents: Stranglehold Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: John Woo’s films are all about messy and graceful shootouts. Messy because there’s always lots of bodies and obliterated environments, and graceful because of the directors trademark slow motion effect and the presence of doves. All perfect subject matter for a destructive action game then.

Review- John Woo’s Stranglehold

videolamer
11 April 2010
  • Conclusion: And the scariest thing? These levels make me think that Strangelhold’s simple, shootout based levels were an accident caused by lack of time. That perhaps the entire game was meant to be more scripted and riddled with gimmicks.

Stranglehold Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Although it was created with the Unreal Engine 3, Stranglehold definitely won’t make you forget about Gears of War or Rainbow Six Vegas . It’s not that the game looks bad, it’s just that there seemed to be a bit of a tradeoff between visuals and interactivity.
