The holiday buying season is now upon us and that means only one thing for gamers: tons of new releases. One of the biggest games due out is Midway's Stranglehold, an action packed spectacular from movie legend John Woo. Knowing that your bank balances will be under a lot of strain, we've team up with Midway to give away a PlayStation 3 and some copies of the game.

  • First Prize: One PlayStation 3 console and a retail copy of Stranglehold for PS3.
  • Runners-up prizes: Four retail copies of Stranglehold on either PS3, Xbox 360 or PC.

About Stranglehold

SIGNATURE WOO STYLE - The stylised action in Stranglehold is all about recreating the look and feel of John Woo's Hong Kong action films. This means visually adding extra attention to the way lighting, visual effects, stunts and slow motion are implemented into the gameplay. For narrative sequences, John Woo himself is directing the cut scenes, camera placement and overall storyline.

STUNTS, INTERACTIVITY & GUNPLAY - Innovative features of the engine allow users to pull off incredible stunts using easy controls. Going well beyond the slow-motion akimbo gunplay of games like Max Payne, Stranglehold gives every object and the environment itself the potential to be part of the action in gun and melee battles never seen before. Run up railings, swing on chandeliers, leap onto moving objects... all without interrupting your intense gun battles.

ONLINE HONG KONG ACTION - The stunts and gunplay all come online. The level of environmental interactivity, akimbo gunplay and character stunts will help to create a completely fresh online experience for shooter fans.

CHOW YUN-FAT REPRISING HIS ROLE AS INSPECTOR "TEQUILA" - Chow Yun-Fat's likeness and voice give Stranglehold an authentic Hong Kong action-movie feel.
