So I just finished playing Stranglehold this week and I thought I would share some thoughts on it since it is about to be released on PS3 as well.
I was not very interested in getting this game but as fate would have it someone wanted to swap it for a book I had so I was lucky enough to get it for cheap…
I had low expectations as I had heard it was just a Max Payne rip off and was being sold more on it’s celebrity status than anything else, well that is just pure sour grapes from some sections. This game is amazing.
Yes it’s not very long (about 8-10 hours) but I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
It’s more like an immersive cinematic experience than a normal game and I think that is what makes it great. I am sure there are problems with it but for R500-R600 this game is worth it.
Pity the multi-player is terrible though, just ignore the fact that it has multi-player and you will be fine.
