Quoted from Stranglehold Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Stranglehold reviews & previews
"For as long as it lasts, Stranglehold delivers a satisfying, if somewhat derivative action game experience."
"One pitfall of being a complete bad ass is that Stranglehold could be too easy. We ripped through countless enemies with ease. Midway did say that this demo was toned way down in difficulty so we fumbling press members wouldn't be frustrated. Personally, I can't wait to play this game with the difficulty bumped up as these amazing action sequences are sure to feel much more rewarding."
"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."
