4.0 out of 5 stars Hard Boiled movie not in HD quality. November 1, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought the PS3 Stranglehold Collector's Edition because it includes one of my favorite movie Hard Boiled in Blu-ray. The movie is a classic for action lover. I was very disappointed that the movie is only not in HD quality but it look worse than the Dragon Dynasty DVD version. Shame on Sony and Midway.

The game otherwise is a lot of fun to play. 9/10

2.0 out of 5 stars Movie quality a HUGE disappointment! November 9, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
This review is only for the movie that's included on the game disc.

I mainly purchased this title for the "Hard Boiled" movie included on the Blu-Ray disc. The movie is a classic, but I am sad to say that I am very disappointed in it's quality...given it's on Blu-Ray HD. Not what I expected at all! The picture quality (sharpness and detail) is pretty good for a 15 year-old movie, but the color definitely needs to be enhanced. The soundtrack is a joke! It comes through my receiver as Dolby Digital 5.1, but it is only in stereo. My center channel and rear surround speakers never came on. All dialog are through the front surrounds. Some have claimed the picture was chopped to fit widescreens. I cannot confirm this as I do not have the DVD copy, but it does not look chopped to me. In short, this movie was not remastered at all for the Blu-Ray transfer as advertised. Hands down the worst Blu-Ray movie quality I've seen! If you're getting this title for the movie, you will definitely be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this game! It's amazing. September 11, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
So, I downloaded the demo from the Playstation network yesterday. The download took all night. I thought, what the heck, I might as well try it during breakfast, for just a few minutes. I had so much fun, I ended up being late for work! It was so worth it.
This is a pretty incredible game. The graphics are amazing. The cut scenes look the most natural of any that I have seen, and the game play is stellar. You can slow the action down using Tequila time (this is the same as Max Payne -- everything goes Sepia, and things slow waaaay down. It runs out fast, though so you have to be careful.)
Pretty much everything is breakable and the physics are stellar. It is a lot of fun sliding across tables holding items such as apples and seeing each of the individual apples fly out of the basket and everything come crashing to the ground, for example. Everything is breakable, too, from the signs hanging above doors to gas cans in the market.

John Woo was involved with this game, and you can tell. If you have ever seen one of his movies, you'll recognize his touch.

This isn't a game for the kids. There is a LOT of blood and guts. Head shots splatter, for example.

If you aren't a kid, but are a fan of hardcore and thrilling action, this game is definitely for you! I'd suggest the Collector's Edition. For a few bucks more you get the Blu-ray version of Hard Boiled, John Woo's last movie in Hong Kong.

What I'd pay: Full Price. As soon as possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super fun game!!! March 20, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I don't know why this game isn't more popular - it's seriously a lot of fun and very playable. The graphics in many parts of the game are superb - awesome coastal / jungle chapter with fantastic water effects. You get to shoot from a chopper and can see the bullets splash in the water!!! The destructible environments are also very well done, you can shoot signs to fall on enemies, also the floor can be shot to pieces from under you so you actually fall through!

I really like some of the unique 'Tequila bomb' aspects of the game and the point system motivates you to improve your aim and style (shooting while in mid-air, etc). My only real complaint would be that it can easily be finished within about 8 hours, but since it's only 39 bucks - I still give it 5 stars :)

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Stranglehold is John Woo's entry to the video game market, and will probably stay that way as just an entry. Its 2010 and still know other game with the John Woo name I'm guessing he wasn't so pleased with the sales of this game. Just stick to the films John, But I applaud him for trying.

The game is a 3rd person shooter similar to Max payne, Dead to rights and whatever other game that has you playing as a cop and slo mo is involved. There is a story but it feels rushed and its just there for the sake of having a story that can be a "sequel" to John Woo's action classic "Hard boiled". This should be an early warning sign to how everything would turn out. Making a sequel to a movie in a video game format it would of worked here if better thought out and executed. What you get here is level after level shooting enemies after enemies. Now you saying so you did the same thing in Max Payne; true but Max payne back in 2000 was the first of its kind and paved the way for other shooters such as Dead to rights, matrix etc.

The game games gets old after a while, the pacing is the same from start to finish and there's boss fights which are just enemies with more health and bigger guns shouting at you and some turret shooting just to add variety. But you know that the game is just trying to hard when adding those. But the John Woo factor kicks in once in a while which are the cutscenes which look really good and are worthy of the John woo title, its like your watching one of his film but in video game form which you dont get to control.

The production values high there's know doubt about that, they went to great length to make everything in the game destructible, just like Woo's films you need to have a place riddled with bullets and you get a lot of that here.
