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
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
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.
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.
Just like Max Payne
Played demo you can go in slow motion and dodge bullets and dive and stuff like Max Payne, constant Action seems like i was Tony Montana in the demo just eating bullets, Lots of enviorement action like shooting a sign above somone to make it fall on them wich is cool, only think i didnt like is how you run and auto slide over tables , WICH is cool but you constantly do it by just running. Only thing it has Max Payne didnt was the cover option wich was good but not as good as Gears of War cover mode. Great Game for gameplay though the demo was alot of fun , its like Rush Hour 2 but jackie chan got guns LOL!
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.
This game was one of the first games I had for my ps3 it was really good kind of like rise to honor on the ps2 which was also great this was really fun I reminded me of the movie rush hour 2 a lot and it was fun as heck still a great game to pick up and play
I have never been a fan of using movie stars as the main charactor in games. From what i can see it will have alot of the same old slow motion tricks brought to us by Max pain and dead to rights. Im sure this will be action packed, but to me this might be a let down bein how ive seen this game play over and over. But i cant hate it until ive played it, so lets hope for good things.
This will undoubtably be awesome, but I don't see preorders for the special edition... There is a special edition coming only to the Playstation 3 with a buncha extra stuff and John Woo's entire original motion picture Hard Boiled in HD, all still on one BlurayDisc. But I don't see where they are taking preorders for it...
Bad to the bone
I can hardly wait for it to hit the shelves I've watched video and other comments the graphics and game play are great and the max payne effects are taken to another lever during the run and gun causing total chaos. You shoot it you destroy it very impressive and realistic environments all around cool shooter game
