Hotline Miami is such a different beast than any game that’s been released this year. It takes the grit and pace of any previous action game to date and takes out all the fat and crap in between. The game tries to be a much faster installment of the original Grand Theft Auto titles that were entirely in two dimensions, but of course without any driving and a fantastic 80’s vibe thrown in the mix.
Hotline Miami is most likely not a game you’ll enjoy, or stick with. It is however a game you need to try.
