Love John Woo's Hard Boiled..

This game has a story that reminds me of some of the movies John Woo has done back in the day. Anyone ever play Stranglehold? Ya it's out dated, 2007 I think... but it is fun if you like the Chinese underworld theme.

Never played Stranglehold, but I do really like the story. I'm alot more interested in it then I thought I was going to be going into the game.

Just bought Stranglehold a few months back for like $4. It was a fun game (Sure it is dated, but that does not bother me).
And yes, this game reminds me of Hard Boiled, or any John Woo/Chow Yun Fat movie from back in the day...To bad you cannot dual wield pistols...or slo-mo with pigeons ;)

This game reminds me of fast and furious a lot. Just think of Paul walker as the main character in this. What's his name again wein

It's Wei Shen in Sleeping dogs and Brian O'connor in Fast & Furious

Stranglehold was brilliant, one of the best games I had played that year.

Stranglehold was pretty good, I enjoyed it.

Sleeping Dogs reminds me of what Shen Mue should of been.

Me and my mate went on the multiplayer about a week ago. We didn't find anyone. So we just ran around the map in slow motion.

stranglehold was great. This game reminds me of stranglehold and shemue mixed.

This game is incredible though.

Of COURSE I played Stranglehold! It was a sequel to Hard Boiled, after all. Great game too, underrated as hell.

Yup. Enjoyed the crap out of it. That game gave a true sense of Action Film style action. I'm liking this game so far too!
