    Very disappointing after all the hype.

    Rated on April 11, 2008 by eryk1

    This game was hyped from the get go, and a let down in the end. There isn't much to be said about this game that's very positive. The detail in the character cut scenes was very good (I could see the ...

    Good game but not all that

    Rated on May 23, 2008 by osmifura

    Loaded with tons of action and cool gameplay. It's not perfect, but it is really fun!

    Rated on May 31, 2008 by ballinxcivic

    This game has what many games don't, fun gameplay. Unfortunately, that's the only thing this game has. The action is fun but get's repetitive, and enemies come out from no where and start blasting; so...

    Although powered by a great engine,Stranglehold's boom, is more like a bang.

    Rated on June 02, 2008 by Yojimbo25

    Stranglehold has been in development for quite a number of years. Way back in E3 2004 to be exact. After two years of limited press, and adding XB360, and PC to its list of consoles, Stranglehold fina...

    An OK attempt at bringing Blockbuster style action to our fingertips.

    It has it's (big) issues, but Stranglehold still is a twitchy, fast-paced game for gamers who want an adrenaline rush!<b

    John Woo is a movie director well known for his work on Paycheck and Face/Off, both are great movies filled with action, big explosions and snappy dialogues. To be honest, he is one of my favorite dir...

    A Love Letter to Real Action Fans

    Rated on May 31, 2013 by Fat_Boy_PT

    "Stranglehold" was released back in 2007 and after all these years it still absolutely and totally rocks. The game has not aged a bit and I would dare to say that it was even ahead of its time in its ...
