Why Stranglehold’s Hong Kong marketplace offers cinematic gaming at its most satisfying

EDGE - Beneath the glass towers and megacorp logos that dominate Stranglehold’s take on the Hong Kong skyline, you’ll find the lanterns and birdcages of a marketplace. It’s an old world tucked inside a new one, and the perfect home for a game that delivers ancient pleasures through cutting-edge tech. (PS3, Stranglehold, Xbox 360)

what an underrated game.

It rates 80-83% at Metacritic...
... which seems about right for this game.

Played the game, mostly enjoyed it, but in the end the story felt a bit too short, relations in the game meant very little, and after the main story is over, I didn't really get that urge to go back.

It was a good game, not GREAT.

Yeah I'd agree with that, good game, little lacking for a sandbox, took me less than 20 hours to complete and find everything. Room for improvement, but certainly warrants a sequel.

I got Stranglehold for 10 sek, that's like 1$, and I must say, the game is fun, if you play it for what it is.

I played this game for one reason and one reason only...ACTION!!! And it prevails in every way. This one was fun trying to get the achievements. 50 kills while hanging on a chandelier was sweet!

Stranglehold was a decent game for its time but it lacked content single-player wise the multiplayer was completly unnecessary.

And the levels should be in hong kong not in disolated places with crappy level desings and i kinda liked the later levels in a building and the kowloon slums with awesome raining effects but still the first level was the best stuff.

You guys are better off playing the demo because it pretty much includes the stuff that actually matters from that game.

Why Max Payne 3 wasnt in Hong kong instead of Brasil is beyond my compreension it just fits.
