Hotline Miami is a high-octane action game overflowing with raw brutality, hard-boiled gunplay and skull crushing close combat. Set in an alternative 1989 Miami, you will assume the role of a mysterious antihero on a murderous rampage against the shady underworld at the behest of voices on your answering machine. 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.

This game is fast. Levels can go by in as little as a minute. Deaths come sudden and frequent, and the restarts are just as fast. This game expects you to die, even if you happen to be good at it, because you can always do better. The only reprieve in the pace is a certain stealth level, which depending on how you feel about it, either serves as a nice respite to the white knuckle intensity of the rest of the game, or it completely wrecks the pacing of the game, and is easily the worst mission. I'm probably in the middle. I appreciate what it tries to do, but I don't feel like it worked in this game.
The actual gameplay is a lot of fun. Obviously it relies a lot of fast reflexes, and a willingness to retry. It's a pretty intense game when you really get into it, with the one hit deaths and the constant pressure. So it's not everyone's cup of tea. Especially not with the general story of murder and insanity. But if it is, then it's quite a ride. The levels are for the most part very well made, and are pretty fun to go through. They give you a lot of attack options.
The games soundtrack is easily the best I've heard in years. It captures that mid 80's Miami hellscape feeling perfectly. All of the artists featured bring their A game, and it's a great selection of modern tracks that hearken back to 80's electronic underground music Also, the game in general was heavily inspired by the film Drive, so there are a lot of thematic and auditory similarities.
Overall, I found the game to be a ton of fun. It's not for everyone, but if it sounds like your jam, then you need to have played this game yesterday. Seriously, it's been of sale for a dollar multiple times.
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.
One of the things I do when I play the game is throw weapon at an enemy with a gun, since that temporarily knocks them out, rush the enemy with melee and punch them, which also temporarily knocks them out, afterwards I bash their heads or slit their throats depending on your weapon.
The music also makes the game more intensive. It matches the style of game play perfectly and it's quite catchy too. It is worth the price.
