Stranglehold screens grab our attention

We've been hit by a salvo of eye-burstingly good images from Stranglehold, Midway's John Woo-inspired bullet festival for PS3, PC and Xbox 360.

The game stars a digital version of Hong Kong cinema hero Chow Yun-Fat, and features the sort of high-action gun battles that he's famous for - complete with twin pistols, restaurant shootouts and dodging acrobatics.

As a bonus, we've also got some footage of the game in full flow - just click the movie tab on the right to treat your eyes to the incredible video. We especially like the sliding-on-a-moving-tea-tray move - something to excite fans of PS2's overlooked Jet Li brawler, Rise to Honour.

Strangehold looks fantastic, but the action will have to match that quality now that the second wave of 360 titles is offering next-gen gameplay as well as amazing visuals.
