Stranglehold is a 3rd person over the top action shooter. Like most games the aim is to progress the story-line and reach the conclusion, but getting there you have to take down a lot of bad guys. That's where this gets a little different from your regular shooter. You get style points for each take down depending on what you do. You have a slo-mo button that slows the action down (aka John Woo film style) that allows u more time to take people down and get some style points. Read More
