Walkthrough of Stranglehold

Walkthrough of Stranglehold

Midway did this long great walkthrough video of Stranglehold, showing some great interesting stuff. The game will be released next year, so the wait will be long and painful.

Man Max Payne times a million. Looking really good, love the destruction.

Holy crap, its got more stunts than Just Cause =O! Looks like that Eight Days game running in real time to me. I loved Max Payne and this looks better. Can't wait to play this game. I didn't see too many melee attacks. I'd like to be able to bust out some Jet Li moves when I get closer.

yeah destructable environments sure is cool. but will gameplay stay fresh and not get too repetive?

that boss sound like a t-rex when he dies ^^,

Anybody know what this was running on? PS3, Xbox360 or PC?

360 or PS3 looking at the res I'd say.

Wow, that was awesome !

But still, i miss Max Payne's atmosphere and Noir story type.

Keep up the good work.

If you have to ask that question with this game, you migh aswell ask this with every 3rd person shooter, or even any shooter for that matter.
I mean, this game has plenty more to offer than most shooters out there, if anything, this should be one of the least repetitve shooters out there, unless the enviroments are too much alike.

This really looks good and looks like a lot of fun, a hell of a lot of fun actually!
That said, I can't believe the lack of attention this game is getting, they really need to start hyping this game a bit more..!

It's a good thing the game has a while to go. It looks like a ton of fun, but there is definitely a ton of work left to be done on those animations.

You know what I love about this game is destructible environments, stunts, slow mo and those Kao Bomb things.

Sweet show indeed. Stranglehold is really shaping up to be something special. The intereraction with the environment is really what is setting this off from the competition.

I want this more than gears. This is the next-gen max payne we never got.

And with only select few games doing this much dynamic physics, its like one generation of console spans four generations of hardware. The way some devs put hardware to good use and others dont just gets more polarized every year.

And longevity? I'll be playing each of those scenarios over and over for hours just like I did with max payne. The physics give millions of random possibilities one more spectacular than the other. ME LIKE!

I think we was talking about the actual gunplay. Also the slow-mo stuff might get a little annoying after a while.

Define: "actual gunplay", I don't quite get it...
Commented on 2006-10-14 01:39:07
Holy crap. If its this exciting just to sit and watch, I expect actually playing it will be 10x better.
Commented on 2006-10-14 02:25:51
This game is FANTASTIC I LOVED IT

Is it all gunplay? I'd like some hand-to-hand combat in there as well.

As would I.

You can barely see him kick a guy once though when he swings off a light fixture, so...... maybe.

A next-gen Max Payne is just what i need :)

The wait is long and painfull for a lot of games.. Only game that comes out this year I'm really interessted in is Gears of War, which offcourse is very weak for the 2006 holiday season.. And this goes for both the Xbox 360 and PC.. Bassicly all games I'm looking forward to are all 2007 games (mostly delayed to 2007).. Maybe I missed 1 or 2 games, but I think they're all 2007..

This game looks cool btw..

Seems nice, but it seems like it could get old.

But then again, shooting groins can never get old :p

Maybe you should consider rainbow six vegas, cause it's predecessor (not lockdown) was the best shooter on the Xbox IMO....

yeah this looks mighty fine!! i really like 3rd-person-max-payne-like shooters, and with this level of destruction seems even better!!

cheers!

About the game


What's up?
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 6 should incorporate all the halo species to date. Humans, covenant, brutes, flood, forerunner & also introduce a new species (5 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 5 was a disaster storywise. Only way they can fix halo 6 is to drop that other spartan and focus only on master chief (5 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: i love the anniversary mockups. For the true fans to enjoy the classics with a modern feel. (5 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz The H6 campaign I meant. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (8 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (8 Hours ago)
