Soon you'll find yourself struggling to get a grip of what is going on and why you are prone to these acts of violence.
Rely on your wits to choreograph your way through seemingly impossible situations as you constantly find yourself outnumbered by vicious enemies. The action is unrelenting and every shot is deadly so each move must be quick and decisive if you hope to survive and unveil the sinister forces driving the bloodshed. Hotline Miami’s unmistakable visual style, a driving soundtrack, and a surreal chain of events will have you question your own thirst for blood while pushing you to the limits with a brutally unforgiving challenge.

The game delights in having you quickly and efficiently kill everyone in your path, and it gives you plenty of tools to do so. As you probably know by now, this is not a game for the squeamish. Necks will be sliced and blood will spray. Heads will be bashed and brains will be spilled. Certain bladed weapons will cleave enemies completely in two.
Keep in mind that all of these acts of violence can (and will, repeatedly) be done to you as well. You will die, early and often. Fortunately Hotline Miami rarely gets frustrating as reloads are quick and you can usually figure out what you did wrong. There is one short level that is entirely stealth driven and a couple of boss fights that will test your patience, but even these brief missteps cannot ruin the overall experience.
This experience is driven by an awesome pixel art style and one of this year's best soundtracks. The entire package is absolutely worth the $10 asking price and in my humble opinion this certainly ranks as one of 2012's best videogame experiences.
The Bad: Too many bugs and glitches, poor gamepad support, music grates after a while, constant trial and error will turn some players away
This game was a complete surprise to everyone. An old-school action game with 8-bit graphics that has a very weird story, but is still fun and interesting? Can't be possible! Well it is because of the genius level design and over-the-top perspective where special game mechanics were worked in to. Enemies can shoot through windows, you use doors to your advantage, and there are so many different weapons, the fun is endless!
The game is based on cheesy 80′s snuff films where you are a hitman that goes to different spots and just kills everyone in the building. The story is very weird yet entertaining, it doesn't make sense, but it doesn't need to. That's how great this game is. You start out by picking an animal mask that you have unlocked, then you go in and try to clear the stages without dying. One hit and you're dead in this game, let me make that very clear. You get a split second window to kill someone before they kill you whether they are facing you or not. If you are behind them you get an extra split second, but you won't clear a hallway before they shoot you. Enemies who have melee weapons are easier because they have to come towards you. The strategy is to see where the enemies are placed in each room and clear the stage accordingly.
It starts out simple, but you will see how addictive and fun it is when your character slices open a neck, smashes a head into a carpet, or blows someone's brains out.Read more ›
that 'try' session turned into me beating the whole game in one sitting. It's such a unecessarily good game. From the music to the sprites to the actual feel of the gameplay it's perfect. It's not a 60 dollar game by any means content wise, but for the asking price this is worth every cent.
I didn't know what to expect, I expected something that felt like Smash TV. But it felt more like a combination of Smash TV and Super Meat Boy, where you're not just fighting hordes, you're utilizing strategy to take out enemies and not get yourself killed (in one hit)- but if you do, it's fast enough to reload the level and try again and again until you win.
Excellent game, try it out!
No, never mindless, far from it in fact. This is a thinking mans game where precision, planning and ultra-quick reflexes are what will get you through most levels. You will still, inevitably, die. A lot. But it's so easy to restart that it is barely a frustration. If anything you come back sharper, more knowledgeable and with a strategy so finely honed you could use it as a blade. It's so arcade like in that 'just one more try' feeling that I almost feel obliged to somehow start pumping quarters into it.
This game gives you spectacular moments that nothing else out there can give. There's a rythm to it and when you lock on to that rhythm, when you find it after your umpteenth try it's nothing short of gaming bliss.
The closest thing I could describe it to would be rocking out an insane solo on Guitar hero perfectly. That's how it feels in that single moment when it all comes together, when you find yourself racking up that awesome combo, making last second decisions that not only preserve your score but save your life. When you are moving through a level so fluidly that it almost looks like you meant it...
....It makes you feel completely Badass.
But to the audience they only see a mish mash of colour, chaos and seemingly wild button taps and the potential for severe eyestrain. They will never understand what it's like to feel this awesome.
You just won't get it until you play it. So do yourself a favour and play it already.
