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. Directed by action legend John Woo, Chow Yun Fat was Inspector ‘Tequila’ Yuen, a cop with more lives than the most careful of cats, more bullets than blood and harder than nails.

Xbox 360 Review - 'Stranglehold'

WorthPlaying
18 September 2007
  • 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.

Stranglehold

ActionTrip

  • Conclusion: In a nutshell, it's safe to say that with Stranglehold, you will be getting exactly what you paid for: over-the-top arcade action with a Hong Kong twist and trademark Woo choreography. As such, the game is great. On the other hand, there is only so much you can do with what you got here, and Stranglehold, although very good, is neither technically nor in any other way, able to pass that threshold and achieve excellence.
  • Pros: Fast-paced, seamless and nicely choreographed action, destructible environments, special shooting modes, John Woo touches;
  • Cons: Camera issues, very good game with clear limitations.

Expert Review

7 February 2008
  • Summary: Nella notte tra il 5 ed il 6 giugno del 1944, l'armata americana diede il via ad una delle più imponenti operazioni belliche mai viste: mentre migliaia di soldati sbarcavano sulle spiagge della Normandia affrontando l'imponente muro di fuoco tedesco, decine di aerei da trasporto truppe penetravano all'interno del paese lanciando centinaia di paracadutisti con lo scopo di prendere alle spalle il fronte nemico.
