John Woo's Stranglehold

Just got the game and it is purely amazing, so much fun as you really feel you are playing in a real action movie. Cinematic sequences, combat, shooting "a la John Woo"... The environment is almost totally destructible, cool and smooth animations like sliding on table, variety of weapons from guns, rocket launcher to helicopter mounted machine gun... Special ability like precision shot, slow motion, barrage etc...

And the graphics are really great, from downtown Hong Kong, to seaside fishermen villages etc... The main character is a cop called Tequila and is indeed played by Chow Yung Fat (very well made 3D rendering) and he is going into a war with the Triads... beware of the bloodshed!!!

The game got extremly good reviews apparently on several games sites and honestly it worth it! Go get it or give it a try! I am totally addicted since yesterday and don't play anything else...
