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

Stranglehold (Xbox 360)

Gamesurf
24 September 2007
  • Conclusion: Stranglehold è un classico sparatutto in terza persona, dove uccidere ogni cosa che si muove sullo schermo è l'unico imperativo che ci porterà fino ai titoli di coda. Adrenalinico, violento, e relativamente breve, forse un po' ripetitivo, ma di sicuro divertente per quanti amano gli sparatutto dove...
