John Woo Presents: Stranglehold

Gamecell
14 July 2008
  • Conclusion: You play Tequila, a “take no-prisoners” cop waging a personal war with Hong Kong crime lords and their gangs. Tequila's ex-wife and daughter are kidnapped by one of the gangs and that sets you off on a righteous killing spree that’s spread over 7 chapters that take you from Hong Kong to Chicago.
  • Pros: An all-action shooter, Well-presented, Stylish cutscenes, John Woo as a shopkeeper, The music – a wonderful theme runs throughout the game, Cause amazing amounts of carnage
  • Cons: Too much style and not enough substance, Tequila sometimes has a mind of his own, There’s just too much relentless action, Multiplayer seems like an afterthought, Annoying “glinting” interactive objects, Tequila throws grenades like a girl

  • Summary: I snart 40 år har John Woo huseret som instruktør i filmens verden, hvor han især i de seneste 20 har haft en uundgåelig indflydelse på actionscenen. Nu træder han sammen med et par vigtige nøglepersoner fra hans egen fortid ind på spilscenen

  • Conclusion: Det största problemet med Stranglehold är att det saknar djup. När hundratals fiender har mejats ner på alla möjliga coola sätt finns det inte mycket mer att göra. Fienderna blir visserligen lite svårare att ta kål på efter ett tag, men man upprepar ständigt samma moment om och om igen.
  • Pros: Action, action och mera action!
  • Cons: Saknar djup och blir ganska enformigt
