Mug shot of Mr Stranglehold

Mug shot of Mr Stranglehold

Midway put online these images of Inspector Tequila, the main character in Stranglehold. There has been so much talk about the story and the characters, so I've always been so disappointed when seeing how the main character looked so bad video after video. Seems like it's not the case anymore, as these face shots look really awesome.

Looks great almost as the real Chow Yun-Fat :o

in the first image he looks like he has a metalic ear, maybe he's half chow yun-fat, half T1000...lol

does indeed looks good tho, i know for a fact my mate is getting this so i'll have to steal it off him. consiering its similarities to max payne im expecting a very good yet very short experience that you possibly wont want to play more then once.

I dont see anything particularly taxing in that shot, its all just texture work and specularity.

Cool.

Reminds me of that floating head of Doctor Octopus that Sony used...
Commented on 2007-06-06 22:35:04
Well, Gears almost looked this good, looks like they removed/or added :S some AA though. but who cares, youre not gonna see him this upclose in game...and this is the generation of "looks better when moving" anyway.

Germany is one of the most self contradicting countries out there.

Actually. It´s not banned.
It´s on the index, which just means it may not be advertised and not sold to minors. But every adult is of course allowed to buy and possess the movie. Banned are only games/movies that e.g. praise Nazi Germany or that to the mind of the authorities violate human dignity like Manhunt.
