Stranglehold in my opinion is a great game. However I'm willing to accept for some, it may not be so good. This is because stranglehold is like a cross between a martial arts game, and the matrix. Some of you will be thinking wow, it sounds really good, but BE WARNED, it can be a little repetitive. However online is fun, and some of the game can be really cool (for example tequila time), but if you don't have XBox Live, I can imagine this could get boring because the story mode is fun, but short. So the most important rule with this game is to download the demo first to see if ur one of the ones who loves it.
