Do you want to play a fast paced, top-down shooter with a great pixelated aesthetic, over the top gore, and an amazing soundtrack that will have you banging your head to the beat while shooting up bad guys? If that at all sounded appealing to you, get this game, because that is what this games sets out to do, and it achieves that perfectly. I know I used a bunch of words in that description (great, amazing, and perfect) that are all overused in reviews so much that they have all basically lost all meaning, but I couldn’t think of any other way to describe how impressed I am with with this game.


Story I’m not going to say much anything about it so I don’t spoil it, but I loved the story. A game like this doesn’t really even need a good story, just something to bring you from level to level, but this game went above and beyond.

Feel I was going to put Art Style and Music in two separate categories, but couldn’t because of how well they complement each other to make both much better. The art style and music are the definition of “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts” They work so well together to create an amazing feel to the game that works so well with the gameplay and the story (which also work together to be greater than the sum of their parts)

Core Gameplay Like the rest of this game, it’s amazing. The controls are tight, the game makes you feel powerful, the scoring system is done well, anything you can think of is just good.

High Octane Do you like high octane games? Well good, because this is a high octane game. Now, I’m not entirely sure what “high octane” means, but I’ve heard a lot of games described as high octane, and Hotline Miami is the embodiment of those games.

Fun This game is really FUN. I had a blast playing it, and you probably will too


Controls The controls took a little bit to get used to, specifically picking up and throwing weapons, but once I got used to it the problem was basically nonexistent. The only other problem I had with the controls was when selecting things in the menu, you use the arrow keys to change what you’re selecting, and then click with the mouse to choose it. It’s a bit weird and unintuitive, but it's not too bad because it doesn’t really affect the game, just the menu.

Length It took me about 6 hours to play through the story, and the game is so great I wish it were much longer. Though, it does have masks and weapons to unlock, achievements to play for, and the levels are scored so it’s fun to try to beat your highscore, so it’s not too bad.

I originally meant for this review to be like 3 lines, but this game is so amazing, once I started writing and thinking about how good it is, I couldn’t stop writing. So yeah. Seriously, get this game.
