John Woo HAS pushed it to the limit with the sequel to his popular movie Hard Boiled.

StrangleHold throws you into the slums of Hong Kong, or center city Chicago as Chow Yun-Fat's popular character, Inspector Tequila.

With the V.O of Chow Yun-Fat himself, it gives the game and ever stronger feel to Hard Boiled.

Playing as a chinese inspector, you weild two pistols, and whatever other weapons you can find lying around from shotguns, to assault rifles, to ballers to sub machine guns.

The feature “Tequila Time” puts Tequila into a slow motion gun down sliding across tables, swinging from chandelers and jumping from high balconies. This shows the player two things, the battle in a slow, violent motion with bullets blazing from all directions, and a chance to give Tequila that small advantage of being faster than the rest.

One let down of the game is the lack of stages. With a tiny seven… yes seven levels to fight across, the game can be easily finished quickly after purchase. But this is for the people that play 24/7.

If you pace yourself along the game slowly, admiring the amazing scenery you just destroyed in gun battle, and take more time to plan a gun-down than run in the middle with a machine gun in slow motion. You can make the game last longer, and have more fun.

StrangleHold is easily an upgrade for the Next Gen consoles, and deserves a standing obation from gamers.


The Stranglehold Collector's Edition will contain:

  • Poetry in Slow Motion—the Extended Making of. It’s about the collaboration with Woo and different features of the game
  • Vision of Stranglehold—development of the look of the game
  • Sound of Stranglehold—voiceover talent, Foley effects, some of the music
  • Extended Cinematic Sequences—covers some of the in-game movies and how they developed, what was kept in and why, what had to go and why, etc
  • A program about storyboard sequences that John Woo and Trevor Goring (storyboard artist) loved but didn’t make the cut

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.

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.
