Rated 8 out of 10 by rodnim367 Great Game but its really short
This is probably my favorite game on the Xbox 360 that I own. Its basically you controlling a chinese dude shooting a bunch a people trying to kill you. The only problem is that I was done playing it in about 4 hours. It's really short but the graphics and blood are amazingly realistic! I wasn't sure about it when I went to the store. But I got it and its worth the price and if you beat it you can always just play it again. Its always fun! You can have a close-up view of where you are going to shoot and you see where the bullet goes as it hits a guy in the back of the head or just about where ever you aim it at. Its sort of difficult to read the instructions but you end up figuring it out on your own. It does suck that you cant pick up weapons. I've never really figured it out. Even after playing it like 2000 times i'm still confused about it. Either way it's a good game to have. So go and buy it if it sounds interesting.

i have recently bought this game yesterday and i have to say its pretty cool.i dont really know what its about because i skipped all the scenes because the audio is pretty low in the game.well anyway its good but not great.i recommend renting instead of buying because you will beat this in 4 hours or less.but if you like to play the same game over and over then you should get this game.the gameplay is really awesome but one thing that did bother me is the tequilla time(slow motion)automatically.and another thing they didnt make it so you can put subtitles.but all in all its a great game and like i said you shouldnt buy it.like cod 4 modern warfare,halo 3,shadowrun(only if you have xbox live because its basically like an xbox live game),resident evil 5,gta IV,or microsoft points so you can get a couple arcade games or an original xbox game.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Ceo23 Great game but very short.
I thought this game was very good but I did not like that it took me just a few hours to beat the entire game. That is the only reason I regret buying instead of renting this game. However, if you don't mind playing the same game and beating it a couple times then it might be worth it. The graphics were really amazing. It truly shows what the new generation systems are capable of producing. It was a pretty violent game so you might not want to buy it for your kids but if you are old enough and like shooting games it is worth giving it a try. It is like watching a real life movie and being able to control the main character. There is a limitation on the amount of weapons in the game so the ones that are available get a little repetitive after a while but overall it is a great game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Captain Hyde A Constant Shooting Fest! Woooooooooooo!
I wasn't expecting it to be as fun and exciting as it turned out to be.Although this is a John Woo game. It has very high expectations. I was definately impressed. It was fairly challenging but had checkpoints throughout the game. It didnt get boring when missions took a few trys to complete. The graphics and guns are good. The Length seemed to be extremely short, however most people in the age category it aims for, gets bored very quickly. The storyline was alright but could of been more exciting. There was no problems with the controls It handle very nice and smoothly through all aspects of the game. The gameplay was hell of a lot better then most xbox 360 games. For the price of it now, it is well worth your time and money if you enjoy intense shooting games
Rated 10 out of 10 by ShaunWhiteHimself MUST HAVE ! Movie-like experience! Bargain, too!
This is the best game you can find if you only have under $5! The gameplay is polished, graphics are very slick and have that oriental feel to them. The game really makes you feel like you are a part of a Chinese gangster movie as that awesome bad cop with all the slick bullet time and all kinds of slo-mo moves and action combos smashing Triad and Russian Mafia members, and picking apart diverse bosses one after another. The whole oriental Yakuza/Triads environment is amazingly authentic and cut scenes look like a John Woo movie for real. The levels are very diverse, too! You'll get to have some fun in Chinatowns, New York ghettos, Viet-Kong type jungle settlements, Russian Mob Restaurants, Art Museums, etc. OVERALL, THIS IS A MASTERPIECE!
Rated 9 out of 10 by techforce hardboiled reimage
had to confessed, i didn't think this was going to be any good, but i it was only $8, so i thought i gave it a tried. and boy was i wrong, this is a really excellent fun action shoot'em up. right on the getto, you started shooting, and not just normal regular FPS, but stylized yet high kinectic action shoot outs. it moves fast but slow at the same time when you use the tilqulia time option. it's a total blast, lots of fun doing all those john woo stylized kung fun movements but with guns. there's no other game out there like this one, this really is unique in a good way. and if you look hard enough, you'll even find john woo himselft in the game. somebody should make a sequal because the short game play leaves you wanting more.

Rated 0 out of 10 by a customer This is what the 360 gets its respect
I watched some sneek peeks and was blown away. This game is one of the contenders for game of tha year. These are my contenders(5 most important games) 1. God of War 2 2. Smackdown Vs Raw 2008 3.Stranglehold 4.Turok 5.Virtua Fighter 5. This should make a war between 360 and the Wii. Now I have new contenders. 1. Stranglehold 2.God of War 3.Smackdown vs Raw 2008. 4. Ghost Recon: Adv. Warfighter 2 5. Halo 3
Rated 9 out of 10 by Swanblood23 Really Well-made
This game was enormously intruiging. I consider it as a wonderful predecessor and inspiration for the game WET. SO SO SO similar, it is unreal. In WET, you find hidden monkeys, in Strangehold, you find hidden paper cranes. IN both you use stylistic combat to gain style points, which unlock more combat options ^_^ Very cool game, very impressive. I highly recommend for people who loved WET. And Vice Versa.

this game is coming out for ps3 and xbox360 at the exact same time, unfortunately for 360 tho its only going to help to begin to show the growing gap of potential the ps3 has. developers are having more time to work with the ps3 system and are finally capable of tapping its true power. sorry microsoft but just like in all your computer software, you've been outdone
