4.0 out of 5 stars Better than Max Payne September 7, 2007
By James
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Stranglehold is a 3rd person shooter where you play a solo cop fighting against criminal armies. The play is very similar to Max Payne, but without the ability to jump. Instead, objects are moved over just by running into them. I really enjoyed this mechanic of the game. The environmental effects are excellent, as are character interactions with the environment. For example, you could jump off a wall, kick over a table for cover, grind or walk on railings, etc.

The graphics are not as good as I would expect from a Playstation 3 title. The detail does not look significantly better than the last generation consoles. Additionally, the violence level is pretty high and graphic, although not as high as a horror movie by any means.

If you enjoy good action adventure games heavy on the action side, this is definitely recommended for you. It has solid gameplay, good pacing, and is a lot of fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stranglehold PS3 review August 3, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Stranglehold is a 3rd person over the top action shooter. Like most games the aim is to progress the storyline and reach the conclusion, but getting there you have to take down a lot of bad guys. That's where this gets a little different from your regular shooter. You get style points for each take down depending on what you do. You have a slo-mo button that slows the action down (aka John Woo film style) that allows you more time to take people down and get some style points. You can also use the scenary to add style. Jump across a table, run up or down a railing, dive off a crate.

All in all this is an enjoyable game. Decent graphics, gameplay and story. Game is a little short coming in at 7-8 hours though. I picked it up for $15 and was a steal.If you can pick it up for $20-25 it's worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game!!! December 21, 2007
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really enjoyed playing this game from beginning to end. I loved the game-play, and how mostly every object interacted with your character. For example you can slide across a dining cart in slow motion. I also enjoyed all the awesome "moves" he can do. Example: when you click the up arrow you get to pick a exact place on someone's body, and it'll shoot right there. Small things like this make this game a must buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good concept poor excecution December 11, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Could have been good but it crashes too often. Also too many places where the game takes over the characters movement. Too many places where you should be able to go but can't. Too many silly characters who take too many shots before they fall. Fine if they had amour but right in the head? Too many times your feet are glued and you have to dodge bullets. Too many places where the cut scene can not be bypassed. As I type my PlayStation is frozen solid because of this game. Yes I have the update. There are other problems but I can not remember them right now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining! October 24, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Before you read further, understand that I am a very laid back kind of person and am not an elitist when it comes to games. I've been gaming back when Atari was the thing and so I am able to forgive graphics or storyline if the game is fun to play.
This is one of those games. The storyline is straight and to the point. It's nothing new, but then again, is there anything really new? Go here and depopulate everything that moves, but it goes further in that it lets you depopulate everything that doesn't move :P (and gives you the bill at the end of the chapter - my highest collateral damage has been 36.5 million - going to have to go back and make sure I'm not so conservative next time around).
It is just fun to go ballistic on hordes of enemies. It is not a game where you can hang back and try to be methodical or stealthy. This game is all about kicking doors down and taking names and is much more fun when you are frantically hopping around the scenery firing exorbitant amounts of bullets while the whole world literally crashes down around you. It's also one of those games where it is fun to watch someone play so you can actually note the attention to detail that was given to this game.
Yes the graphics may be dated, but it was made in 2007, what do you expect? It's not a deal breaker. The environmental damage is persistent. If you shoot and break something - it stays there, it doesn't magically disappear. Kill animations are specific to the area that the target was shot at. For instance, if you shoot them in the neck, they grab their neck and gurgle/choke blood. If they were shot in the eye, they cover their eye, etc.
It does have its flaws, just like every other game, and you can read plenty of the other reviews to see what they are.

3.0 out of 5 stars After a ridiculous wait... November 30, 2007
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
It's finally here. I heard about this game early 2007 and thought it sounded good. If I could've played it then, I probaby would have enjoyed it. Instead they kept pushing off the release date and my anticipation clearly grew too much, because I was very dissapointed when I started playing it. The early game was almost infuriating with my introduction to the seemingly endless swarms of enemies where you have no choice but to dive around the screen in slow motion for ten minutes to clear each area. I prefer a cleaner approach, sniping enemies or luring them away from the rest, and in the early part of the game that just wasn't possible. At that point I couldn't wait to finish the game just so I could give it a one star review. Then, as the levels progressed, you pretty much stay in-doors, and with the better weapons that became available, I was able to use my ambush tactics much more often. At that point, being able to better control the battles, the game became much more enjoyable. By the time I finished off the final boss, I almost regretted it ending. As another reviewer said the graphics are just okay, and the weapons are a little too realistic (as opposed to, say, Rachet's force field launcher) but altogether, as long as you don't mind furious and really long gunbattles, I'd say this game is a decent rent.
