Stranglehold Presentation Video

Following up on yesterday's exciting video interview with Brian Eddy, the director of Stranglehold is this even more in depth presentation video, it opens with an explosive clip from the movie Hard Boiled (to which Stranglehold is something of a spiritual sequel), before segueing into some gameplay footage of the game. We hear more from Brian Eddy, but are also treated to hearing from the man himself, John Woo as he talks about his input on the project, which included shepherding the narrative and making sure the action was up to his dovetacular standards.

The game looks better and better with every showing, I just hope they can work on their transition animations. Stunning graphics are one thing  but every time Tequila transitions from sliding across the floor, to flipping up on two feet, or jumps on a banister it really takes you out of the games reality, something that's a problem with a lot of next gen games in general (Fight Night Round 3, I'm looking at you).

And yes, there are doves.
