Stranglehold for the Xbox 360 is a fun action game in the style of John Woo and Chow Yun-Fat. The game has decent visual effects and is almost like a Chinese-style Max Payne game.
I only rented Stranglehold and didn't buy it because the story-mode is very short; I beat the game twice in a few days on both normal and the hardest difficulty settings. I really enjoyed playing through the game the first time but the novelty of running from room to room and shooting the same enemies wears out really fast.
Stranglehold does have an online mode but I didn't have much fun playing it. The single player experience is definitely worth a rental but I would not recommend buying this game because it is too short and too repetitive.
