John Woo's Stranglehold is a direct video game sequel to the classic 1992 movie Hard Boiled. Chow Yun-Fat reprises his iconic role as Inspector "Tequila" Yuen, who must navigate a noir world of criminals and innocents. You must protect those who don't deserve to be caught in the crossfire and punish those who do.

Stranglehold is known for popularizing the "bullet time" feature in video games, whereby time slows down so you can better aim at your enemies. It also offers intense gun battles with Woo's signature cinematic style, as well as impressively destructible environments, especially for its original time of release.

The GOG PC version is a slightly enhanced edition featuring GOG's cloud saves and overlay features. It was released on November 26, 2019, marking the game's first ever digital release.
