July 27, 2007 - Today Midway announced a demo for its upcoming action game Stranglehold will be available on the Xbox Live Marketplace in early August. The game is scheduled to ship August 27, so hopefully Midway will get the demo up soon enough for us to spend some quality time with Chow Yun Fat to decide whether to get his game or BioShock at the end of the month.
Stranglehold brings back beloved action hero Inspector Tequila from John Woo's film Hard Boiled and tosses him into a hyperkinetic shooting game. Players can recreate their favorite scenes from the film like diving through the air in slow motion with a pistol in each hand and nailing every bad guy in the room. A mafia boss has kidnapped Tequila's family and he'll destroy the entire world to get them back if he has to.
