    the game is ok and the action is varied and over the top which makes it kinda fun but the camera angles are terrible!!! it can be difficult to sometimes see where your supposed to go next and youll find yourself wandering around aimlessly.. after a while it got so frustrating for me i gave up on the game and went back to devil may cry...worth the rental but its not worth buying eventhe game is ok and the action is varied and over the top which makes it kinda fun but the camera angles are terrible!!! it can be difficult to sometimes see where your supposed to go next and youll find yourself wandering around aimlessly.. after a while it got so frustrating for me i gave up on the game and went back to devil may cry...worth the rental but its not worth buying even though ive seen it go as cheap as 25.99 Collapse

    Bottom line the story is hot but, the game play is wack...you should just get a John Woo movie and watch that....Face off any oneb

  1. Stranglehold has a cool-as-anything hero, a strong story, a great pick-up-and-play vibe and - later on - a genuinely taxing tactical side. It is, in short,one of the most exciting games of any genre on PS3. [Oct 2007, p.84]
  2. An exhilarating shooter brushed with John Woo's genius, Stranglehold plays like Max Payne in a bag of snakes. [Oct 2007, p.8]
  3. Brainless shooters are one thing, but with an interesting storyline and the world of John Woo controllable in the palm of your hands, action fans should flock around this one as it offers much “bang” for the buck.
