Wow, a really early review. I'll wait for more reviews and if you check, they gave Stuntman: Ignition a 4 out of 5 which doesnt sound right to me (I expect a 6-7 out of 10 for Stuntman). Hopefully both games are great, specially Stranglehold.

"If there’s any criticism here it’s that Stranglehold’s combat is relentless and ferociously intense, making the game a stressful experience that will alienate players who want a little more brain stimulation and variety from their virtual escapades."

for Captian Obvious' sake Stranglehold is an action title, I can't see why that is a negative point.

I don't know if I trust this site. A lot of places where their main focus isn't games seem to be too generous when reviewing something. I'll wait for other reviews.

I could be wrong though.

I submitted the news and i kind of agree with Dr Pepper i've read Empire for a long time and they have given some truly poor games (especially movie based games) good review's.
