Acclaimed action director John Woo presents Stranglehold, a stunning third-person action adventure videogame. A "spiritual sequel" to Woo's action masterpiece, "Hard Boiled," Stranglehold redefines the action gaming experience with its acrobatic gunplay, thrilling cinematography, frenetic combat and incredible Massive Destructibility. Chow Yun-Fat reprises his signature role as Inspector Tequila, pitting gamers as a take no-prisoners cop waging a personal war with Hong Kong crime lords. Tequila's loyalties to the force are tested when his ex-wife is kidnapped by the Russian mob in Chicago. Tequila struggles to balance his duty to uphold the law with doing what it takes to save his family.
  • Suitable for 18 years and over. Not for sale to persons under age 18. By purchasing this product, you declare that you are 18 years of age and over.

Hyper-Stylised Action: Stranglehold allows gamers to play a John Woo directed action blockbuster movie. Dual-wielding, stunt-laden gunplay combined with massive destructible environments ensures that Stranglehold is a true tour-de-force. The environmental interactivity and two-fisted gunplay all come online, bringing the experience to a whole new level.

    Amazing Gunplay & Stunts: Gamers will experience smooth flowing gameplay, such as running up railings, swinging on chandeliers and leaping onto moving objects, all without interrupting intense gun battles.

      Blockbuster Hollywood Talent: Featuring the cinematic flare of acclaimed action director John Woo, Stranglehold also benefits from Woo's direction on storyline, camera placement and cutscenes. Starring international action-star Chow Yun-Fat as Inspector Tequila, the game's cast is also comprised of other A-list Hollywood talent.

        Ground-Breaking Technology: Massive D, the innovative physics engine, provides gamers with an unprecedented level of interactivity. With two huge areas to explore (Chicago and Hong Kong), the interactions are infinite with each level offering massive amounts of destructibility.

          Innovative Tequila Time Mechanics: Stranglehold's inventive combat camera and Tequila Time slow-motion system allow players to simultaneously aim and shoot at the current target while driving, providing for robust gunplay combat between vehicles.

            Unreal 3.0 & Havok: Using a highly modified version of the Unreal 3.0 engine integrated with the Havok physics system, Stranglehold breathes new life into game environments and characters with stunning graphics, and features an ever-changing battleground depending on how players approach different scenarios.

            I'm sure the game would be enjoyable if only the keys could be remapped to your own specific needs...they cannot! The movement keys are fixed (w=forwards, s=backwards) unless you download a patch that re-assigns them to the arrow keys. This is not good enough! The players should be able to decide for themselves which keys/buttons they prefer to extract the maximum enjoyment from any game. Very poor!

            during a review one of the lead designers said that the Max Payne games got inspiration from the hard boiled film and this (dont know how that works because max payne is much older than this game) and seeing as I really enjoyed the MP games I thought I'd give this a try with great expectations.

            I was incredibly disapointed. The game-play is repetative and gets boring after the first level. Going into an area filled with around 25 to 50 enemies gets boring as you can simply launch yourself through the air and lay 1 bullet with a pistol and kill each person.

            You also get that super slow motion zoomed in feature which makes the game 100x easier. admittidly the animations on some of the enemies are pretty cool and the rag doll physics can be quite fun to watch.

            Overall, its a very boring, repetative game that just repeats the same section of the game over and over but just in different environments. It still amazes me the 'recommended requirements' for this pc version as the game really doesn't look all that graphicly impressive.

            I'd personally say avoid this game and just download the demo. the full game is just the demo, repeated many times and with a few extra features to make the game much easier thrown in.

            I've just downloaded the demo for the pc of this game and it plays as good if not better than the 360 version with extra control being allowed thru the mouse and keyboard. There are no options to adjust the video settings but you don't need them, it looks and plays very well. You'll probably need a mid to high end pc to play the game smoothly though, my set up is probably mid to high end. I have a Geforce 7800GS Bliss 512mb video card, 2gb of ram, 80 gb hard drive and a samsung syncmaster 205bw LCD monitor and the demo runs very well. Looking forward to the full release in a few weeks time. Give it a go.

             Just Fun

            This game is repetative but it's just great fun. I really like the taquila time etc. Yes, COD4 is way better but if you just want 20 minutes of crazy shooting action at a time then this is great!
