Stranglehold - A worthy successor to Hardboiled
Pros: loads of action, solid gameplay, great sound effects
Cons: short, bland multiplayer, gets repetitive
Stranglehold looks and feels like a John Woo movie. That alone is worth the money. Just dont expect a great narrative. Read More at Epinions.com

Tearin' Up Hong Kong on the Xbox360
Pros: John Woo movies meet video gaming in this outrageously violent shoot-em-up
Cons: Gameplay is a 3 trick pony. Forgettable Multiplayer.
Max Payne with updated gameplay gets repetitive real quick. Its good but not great. If Stranglehold's Multiplayer was better, I'd have given a 4 star rating. Read More at Epinions.com
