More tequila, more bullets and more jazz
20 January 2008 | by RainDogJrSee all my reviews

The story follows Inspector "Tequila" (Chow Yun-Fat) from the 1992 film "Hard Boiled" directed also by John Woo. In this story "Tequila" must deal with Wong who is the father of his ex-wife and with the Russian mob, first in Hong Kong and later in Chicago. The game is not a sequel of the film because the story is not the continuation and is more like another chapter in the life of "Tequila". The story is simple but good, and the game play is amazing just as the graphics. I love all the different places for every chapter, specially the first one in Hong Kong and is just amazing all the objects that "Tequila" can use and how he can make the environment as an allied. The action is amazing, and to play as "Tequila" is more exiting than watching the film so for me "Tequila" is back and is better. And well the unique bad aspect of the game is that there are no repetition, imagine if they put something like in Halo 3. A total John Woo cinematic experience. Also i found the story a little short but anyway i love this game and i love more and more the character of Chow Yun-Fat.

Xbox live: i have the game for Xbox 360 and to play in multi player is just fun. Is great that you can choose between more than 15 characters including John Woo (who also appears in the bar where you buy the bonus material) and also that you can play in teams. The environments are the same of the story and the game play is good, a little difficult to can kill the enemies because sometimes there are some strange movements.

Conclusion: this game is amazing, the best work of John Woo in the West and one of my favourite games of 2007, along with Halo 3, Bioshock and some others. Full of beautiful action sequences and well "Tequila" is older but better. 10 out of 10
