IGN gives 8.1/10 to Stranglehold - Review and X360 Promo Trailer

There are a lot of mindless shooters on the market, but none of them immerse you in John Woo's world. And that's where Stranglehold stands out. This is the true sequel to Hard Boiled, which means Stranglehold is more about style than substance. So, not surprisingly, the story is melodramatic and forgettable and the adrenaline-pumping action is the star of the show. Stranglehold could use two more chapters and a little more visual polish, but it is an otherwise exhilarating experience. There are plenty of "Oh my God" moments and just enough challenge to sustain anyone's interest from start to finish.

It's really sad because Midway used to be a great developer back in the day. Now their games are either average or just bad.

Stranglehold looks like it wants to be Max Payne. Too bad it isn't..
