Product Details:

Acclaimed action director John Woo presents Stranglehold, a stunning 3rd-person action adventure videogame for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. 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 (Massive D). 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.

* Stranglehold allows gamers to play a John Woodirected action blockbuster movie. dual-wielding,stunt-laden gunplay combined with massive destructible environments ensures that Stranglehold will be a true tour-de-force. The environmental interactivity and two-fisted gunplay all come online, bringing the experience to a whole new level.

* 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.

* Featuring the cinematic flare of acclaimed action director John Woo, Stranglehold will also benefit 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.

* The innovative physics engine will provide gamers with an unprecedented level of interactivity. With two huge areas to explore (Chicago and Hong Kong), the interactions will be infinite with each level offering massive amounts of destructibility.

* 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.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a bargain! Now, I watched my dad play this game a ton and he could not stop raving about how much fun this game is. I picked it up and found it to be a lot of fun. The game is nothing but nonstop action with enemies everywhere- especially on the hard levels. Use your abilities to take down enemies with a single bullet from a long distance and cool things like that. There are some big bosses to take out. I recommend it especially if you need a good starter game for your PS3, but also for a veteran of 3rd person shooters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Action to the extreme!!! Stranglehold is A nonstop thrill to play to start with jumping threw the air and blowing guys 45 feet is just plain fun but when they add explosions chopper rides and a great movie director its insane to start with your a cop whose wife and daughter get kidnapped buy mobsters you spend thee entire storyline getting them back and learning about the characters it takes you from Chicago streets to boat lodges to penthouses to history museums as for weapon selections its not great but the 5 weapons you do get such as a pump action shotgun 45 caliber pistols 9mm smg assault rifle and my favorite fragmentation grenades are all deadly I love getting graded on how good the stunts you pull of and trust me its funner then hell to do this shooting fire barrels tofu sings poles and a bunch of other deadly items is awesome length i wish it was longer it has 7 chapters with 4-5 mission in them but there short. But all and all its allot of fun and I deeply recommend this John-Woo experience

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Action !!! Stranglehold Too start with is a very fun enjoyable experience with Shooting the whole way you never put down a gun and that's not necessarily a bad thing storyline. your basically a cop who's daughter and wife get kidnapped by a kingpin boss and trying to get them back the whole game length. If your looking for a long game well except to get disappointed this has maybe 3 hours of game play but in that time you'll be so intrigued with gun fights you wont care Selection. No stranglehold doesn't have a good armory type it consists of a smg 45 cal pistol shotgun bazooka assault rifle and well golden pistol This game all about stunts you get graded on how well you pull them off its fun and you can slide down rails jump from chandeliers shoot propane and my favorites precision aim Barrage and spin attack these are special moves that you Eran and all of them are awesome and fun as hell So all and all stranglehold gives action fans a enjoyable time but its very short but I recommend it thanks for reading

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Good This is a really good game. The sounds are incredible. The way the crumbling sounds when you smash through a table and the sound of bullets hitting flesh. They are almost seamless. There are so many different ways to kill a guy in that. The graphics are very good, and the physics are practically real. But what do you expect? It's unreal engine 3. They are the best physics program out there. I played the demo over and over again before i got the game. I beat it three times in a row, because it just never gets boring. It never gets old when you go into precision aiming and shooting a guy and watching him plummet to his death toward a propane tank, making it blow up, and killing tons of other guys which is unrealistic but still funny as crap. The slow motion is very well done and surprisingly easy to activate, and it is funny to his dive over a box while shooting a guy into a wall with a shotgun. If you like hardcore shooters, are good at them, and enjoy a load of unrealistic fun and are able to ignore some minor glitches, and graphical problems then this is the game for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best games yet This is just awesome. It puts you in an action movie, but with more action! I was always at the edge of my seat jumping on to things, swinging and shooting, diving in carts and stuff like that and every thing's destructible. It's incredible. You can have cool powers like tequila mode and stuff like that. It's one of my favorite games in the entire world. I am surprised nobody has given this game an award. The cover system is just great and it's just awesome. The only thing is not many people online, but once you're online it's like a never ending roller coaster. You dive off a rooftop and shoot someone while you're in a cart and slide down museum pieces (like dinosaur bones). I strongly recommend this game. It's a definite buy.
