* ShoutOut: A PennyArcade strip about the game featured an achievement called "Testikill" for shooting enough mooks in the groin. When the game's DLC came out, this was made into an actual achievement.

''[[InCaseYouForgotWhoWroteIt John Woo Presents Stranglehold]]'' is a 2007 ThirdPersonShooter by Creator/MidwayGames that is both an affectionate pastiche of the classic HeroicBloodshed movies ''and'' a sequel to the probably most famous example of the genre, ''Film/HardBoiled''. And it was produced with JohnWoo participating, while Chow Yun-Fat reprises his role as Tequila. As you may have expected from that lineup, the game is much more about marrying RuleOfCool to RuleOfFun and [[EverythingBreaks trashing each next level]] in impossibly awesome ways than anything else.
