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 actually have the full game for the ps3,i got it from america so i can review this fully unlike some of the others who have just played the demo. In short..this game ROCKS big time,it's rare for a game to truly excite me but this game is so much fun. There are only 7 levels in all and i'am currently on level 5. There could have been a couple more levels to play but this is the only criticism. Theres so much to blow up..use inventive ways to kill the bad guys like shooting overhead billboards..watch them drop on their heads..roll on trolleys firing 2 guns,flip off buildings in slow mo shooting the bad guys..theer's so much coolness here i can't tell you!! one of my faves is the precision kill mode which fires one bullet in slo mo to any bad guy you choose..shoot himanywhere..my fave is the nuts..watch him wince in pain and collapse !!

            I dont know why the uk version has been held up but go get this..everyone will rave over call of duty 4 but this is way more fun and cool!!

            i never right reviews on anything, but this i had to.. i played up to the second level and cried. it seemed like i mastered the game from the begining because all you get to do is dive (it proves this by the stupid cover). i had the choise to get drakes or this.. thinking that this would be the better choice and beeing a fan of chow yun fats films i thought other wise.. but the second i saw the rubbish graphics and crappy game play i died inside. if you are like me and like gaming. please don't make the same mistake i did. it is a terrible game and i really wish i got hit by a bus on the way home before i had the chance to see this horrific game.

            This game is the greatest bargain i've ever picked up. A big surprise for a small price. It's a fun fast paced action game. Even if you don't like the game at least your pockets won't be hurting you too much lol. if you haven't got anything to play give it a go its only £8
            BUY IT
            Thank you for your time
            I hope I Haven't Bored you lol

             PURELY AMAZING

            Yeah I agree that the graphics aren't that good but it is NOT true that the gameplay gets boring and repetetive...

            IT ONLY GETS BETTER!

            It's also cheap so by all means... Buy it!
