Stranglehold was John Woo’s first foray in to videogames. A sequel to the Hong-Kong Action flick Hard-Boiled, Stranglehold saw the return of Chow Yun-Fat’s â€œTequilaâ€ as well as the slow-motion â€œbullet-timeâ€ that eventually found it way in to games like â€œMax Payne,â€ and films like â€œthe Matrixâ€
Some people thought Stranglehold was the best thing since sliced bread. The more rational among us thought it to be a mindless, but pretty damned fun game – provided you could look past its myriad of flaws. If you’re in the former camp, you might be excited to known that despite being ridiculously busy, John woo is interested in making another game.
