GC06: Trailer of Stranglehold

GC06: Trailer of Stranglehold

Midway released this great trailer for Stranglehold, looking really really impressive. In fact, I've never been interested in this game, until now. They've really improved the graphics during the last months!

Yup, looks like a blast. Sure has a Max Payne feel to it -_-

Looks boring...
Commented on 2006-08-24 21:55:50

you can say it doesn't look interesting to you... but boring it's not.

I think it looks rather good indeed

Ehh..shoot shoot shoot..seen it enough times in John Woo movies..don't need to see/do more of it in a game..Nothing innovative here..

Hong-Kong John Woo* + Psi-Ops Team + Next-Gen Console = DOVES DOVES DOVES!

(*Hollywood ruined him)

Improved the graphics, I don't see much of an improvement?
Nonetheless, this game looks pretty damn good!
Have you not seen the gameplay trailer where the whole bar/café is smashed into pieces at the end of the trailer, that totally sold me out, simply awesome stuff!

Holy UE3 + havok + john woo... BATMAN.

I loved max payne 2 for the physics and slowmo matrixgasms.. this should pop the cherry like no other.

Games like this have the very realistic opportunity to be far superior to their silverscreen counterparts. Go JOHN WOO and cast!

960 x 540 version if its possible?
Commented on 2006-08-24 23:35:05
This will satisfy my hunger for MaxPayne 3.....

The lighting right there is ACE.

And the game has been much improved since I saw it last time. The AI still doesn't look too bright though. I count four guys standing in line on one scene. :D

@BooMMooB: Like Raz0rEdge said, just simple shooting... that's boring

I think the game looks great but I think it is going to come down to how good the gameplay is with doing some of those cool things

Trailer is awesome!!

Simple shooting? Did you guys even watch the trailer? Diving onto trolleys, spinning back and shooting the opposite direction while it's still rolling, jumping onto chandeliers and volleying off onto higher platforms while surprising the enemy behind a pillar.. massive destructive environments... signature john woo slow motion shoot dodges, it doesn't look like you can get any closer to a crazy HK action flick than this game! Can you tell I'm excited? lol

well, i wouldn't call it simple shooting hanging from a chandeleer or sliding down a rail. Dont know what games you have played but it seems like i missed a few...

/irony off

Smell like Max Payne got my eyes on this one
Commented on 2006-08-25 12:38:31
After playing Max Payne this is just simple copy klone with a stupid main character (yeah I know he's a big kung fu hero, but dude, the man is chubby, I don't like chubby hero's... and yes, I didn't like Max Payne 2)

Off course you have to put some new things in the game like hanging from a chandeleer, but does that make the game different/good? I don't think so.

But afterall, this is just my personal opinion.
Commented on 2006-08-25 12:54:12
Chubby? Just because guy has Fat as his last name (or whatver it is) doesn' make him one. You must be an anorectic if you think he's chubby. He's just bigboned :<

About the game

What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks I didn't understand why he played so poorly either though. Subasic has been amazing the rest of the tourney. A big reason they won against Denmark and Russia (15 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks @MrWhite: I agree. Penalty like that shouldn't happen in a WC final. Croatia's keeper was screened for almost all of those goals, aside from the deflection (15 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Melmoth: oh god, that is amazing. the sounds and visuals are insane for a sim. (15 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (15 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (16 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (16 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (16 Hours ago)
