Stranglehold is a retro-gothic DM with a Classic Quake feel and a very wide open layout. There are certain areas within the level that touch on Sleepwalkr's Aerowalk and ZTN's Blood Run, both timeless classics. The lava hazards add a little fun for humans, but unfortunately the bots couldn't keep themselves out of them. Item placement is good, tho ammo runs scarce at times. Suitable for 2v2s as well as 6 player FFA's, give Stranglehold a peek - you'll probably keep it. You can frag away on Jax's maps on the Burial Grounds customs server.
A solid effort from my old friend Jax.
