Back in 2007 I had a great time playing through Stranglehold, and when Ironman was sorting out some old games he didn’t want any more I immediately put my hand up to play through it one more time. It was Midway’s first game to use Unreal Engine 3 and was designed with John Woo as the spiritual successor to his much lauded film Hard Boiled. Watch the doves flap and the bullets fly (from the much air-brushed and artificially slimmed-down guns of Chow Yun-fat!) in this episode of let’s play old games. It scrubs up surprisingly well in both the visuals and the gameplay for a game that’s 9 years old.
