Game Review: John Woo Presents Stranglehold (Xbox 360)

John Woo Presents Stranglehold is a no holds barred, unabashed action movie turned video game and it is perfectly happy being so.

Slo-mo action sequences with loads of explosions that don’t make any sense mixed with a plot that is just an excuse for more shooting galleries – it’s fair to say this game doesn’t take itself too seriously.

A rare time when he’s only rocking one gun… and there aren’t any explosions…

So obviously this was never meant to be game of the year but that’s perfectly fine! It’s actually still a very playable and really fun game and definitely worth your time if you’re looking for some mindless action.

My review: Surprisingly Good
Pick it up for: Cheap
Metacritic score: 77 / 100
