If you're still on the fence I'd recommend jumping back off the way you came.

Stranglehold doesn't have much replay value. While I did complete it three times to earn enough reward points to unlock all the extras, that's only just to see the behind the scenes artwork, videos and multiplayer character models.

It's an arcade style game that doesn't call for tactics. You just have to kill everyone, preferably while flying through the air in slow motion or by using the environment against enemies and run over pick-ups.

It feels very old-fashioned, and devoid of real interaction. I need more character involvement, and more interaction, such as you get in Grand Theft Auto or the Arkham and Fallout series. I like to mix up my killing, too, by taking a break from head-on rampage by playing a sneaky bastard (e.g., the old Splinter Cell series).
