Replay – Stranglehold

by Kyle Hilliard on Nov 23, 2018 at 08:00 PM

In the years between Max Payne 2 and Max Payne 3, there was only one detective willing to take up the slow-motion diving through the air while firing guns cause, and his name was Inspector Tequila.

Stranglehold is a sequel-of-sorts to John Woo's 1992 action film, Hard Boiled. In it, you play as the film's protagonist, Inspector Tequila (played by Chow Yun-Fat), as he gets into more gun-related mischief while putting doves in danger. It's a pretty insane game and one that Leo Vader is happy to share his appreciation for with me and Andrew Reiner, who inexplicably finds himself in the booth doing Leo's job.
