Stranglehold demo available

Get it now on Live.

A demo for Stranglehold is now available to download from Xbox Live, weighing in at a hefty 1.28 GB.

It gives you the chance to jump into the boots of tough-nut cop Tequila, and blast your way through a marketplace area as you take down the baddies - destroying absolutely everything as go.

Midway hopes the cinematic gunfight will give you a juicy mouthful of what the Hong Kong-inspired shooter is all about.

The game is based around John Woo film Hard Boiled, and both he and actor Chow Yun-Fat have leant their considerable talent to the project - estimated to be one of the most costly projects around at USD 30 million.

The game is due out on 7th September on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Head over to our Stranglehold gamepage for our considerable coverage to date.
