Stranglehold is a great game to play on the weekend. I say on the weekend because if you play after work you will not want to put the controller down to stop playing. The action is non-stop and a boring moment never lasts more than a short cutscene, so expect to lose sleep on the first playthrough. The slow motion, "put a bullet in someones eyeball" for tequila bombs (manna for you RPG geeks) is nice but gets old after the 100th time and the levels get to a point of asking yourself havent you been there before. The graphics are off the meter (believe the screenshots) and you are free to cause massive destruction using anything that well, sparkles.
This game is pretty much a one-trick pony. You'll have a literal blast on the first go but there are more games currently out with better replay value (and more coming) than Stranglehold

At the very beginning of the game i had a lot of fun it was fast and exciting but after a few levels of the same old stuff the game kind a got stupid. all you ever do is shoot the same bad guy i say this because all the bad guys look alike with a few exceptions and during the cut scene when he is with his wife he steps on a puddle of water not in on and the water does not even ripple i gotta say for a next gen game its not breaking any of my expectations and i was really excited about the game over all its fun at the start but gets kind a repetitive and a lil boring but that's just what i thought rent it and find out for your self.
