Shipping this week: Woo-tiful edition


After last week's glut of new games, the offerings have slimmed down once again. Last week was short on shooters though, so we're sure action fans will be pleased with this week's lineup. This week we (finally) get a crack at Stranglehold and Medal of Honor: Airborne. So, which will it be: John Woo Hong Kong action or World War II paratrooping combat action. Of course, there is the possibility of an even bolder choice: none of the above. But where's the fun in that?

If you need help deciding, don't forget that demos are available for both titles on Xbox Live Marketplace.

4. Decent games, but i'm wait for Skate next week. I think that'll hold me off until H3 on the 25th.

5. Stranglehold seems like a good rental. I bet it would be over with pretty quickly.

I liked the MOH demo. Played it through a few times and it was different each time beacuse of my landing. It was more than I was expecting. Co-op over Live would be cool because chances are you'd jump and land away from your group and you'd all have to either stealth style move to regroup or each cover sections of a zone.

Not willing to drop $60 on either though. I still have to finish Two Worlds. Lovin' it.

7. It sucks people hate on Stranglehold so much, Max Payne this and that.....so it is still kick ass. The game is a dream come true for Chow Yun Fat fans who have followed the actor long before he came to America kiddies. Stranglehold FTMFW Indeed!!!!

8. Honestly, it's about 10 times more fun than Max Payne as it is.

9. Both games are pretty good. I enjoyed both demos. If Heavenly sword wasnt next week I'd get one of these.

10. Stranglehold was ehh, a lil fun at first but got a lil sick doin the same jump over this, slide on this, shoot a sign.. Just not my cup of Joe..

And MoH.. Nah.. CoD4 is much better, Im a lil WWII'd out..

Posted at 11:59AM on Sep 4th 2007 by Phour ZwanZig

11. Funny since Max Payne took its concept from Woo flicks anyway....but I don't remember being able to manually kick a cart run and dive on it and shoot da bad guys...while shifting your weight to navigate the cart.

12. If you read either the IGN review, it says you'll get about 6-8 hours of gameplay out of it, while the multiplayer is pretty much broken.

Yeah, well worth the £40 in the UK. I think I had my fill of Stranglehold playing the demo 3 or 4 times to unlock those special moves on the D-pad.

Krusty;

Ads? Pfffft, I haven't seen ads for almost a year.

13. Stranglehold was out last week.

14. Already beat this game on normal on 9/2/07. Although only 6 hours long, pretty good nonstop action. Hard boiled mode is difficult.
