Default Hotline Miami

How come nobody is talking about this game? It's da best game evar!

If you like hardcore games, with lot of blood, ****ed up characters, a real challenge and an old school gameplay, this is the game for you.

It takes place in 1989. You're basically a hitman, and everytime you get a contact, you have to clean a building full of russian mob. it looks like the first GTA, with the same view from the top. It's a lot bloodier than gta though. You'll die a lot in this game. A single bullet or hit can kill you. And likewise, you only need one hit to kill a dude. But you can't go berserk on them. You have to study the place, study how the dudes move, and plan carefully how you will kill them. Gameplaywise, it's a real challenge, but it's also really rewarding.

The mood is akin to the mood of Drive. But it also makes you think you're in a David Lynch movie. Your character is really unreliable, and you don't know if he's insane, or if everything is true. He hides his face with animal masks during the killings. The ost is brilliant. I urge you to listen to the menu soundtrack: sun araw - horse stepping.

This game was released on pc in 2012, and it's been released on ps3 and ps vita 3 days ago. It's cross buy, meaning you'll pay once and you'll get it for both the ps3 and the vita. It costs 8$ on the psn.

It's incredible on PC - I want it on Vita but I was waiting for the general consensus on the controls. I'm more than happy to fork out the cash again if it holds up.

One of my favorites from last year, I really like using KB+M for this but perhaps I'll be double dipping down the line if it's equally as good for the PS3.

Excited for the sequel, it's suppose to come later this year if I'm not mistaken.

I'm not really into 8-bit graphics...if they had gone with 16 bit I would totally have gotten it

I find the controls to be really effective, both on the ps3, and on the vita. I prefer to play it on the vita though.

The graphics add a lot to the general mood imo, it makes you feel like you're back in 1989, which is perfect for the game.

I saw a video of the sequel, it looks even crazier than the first one! You can check it on youtube.

I'm not a fan of playing it on PS3 but it handles great on Vita. I still prefer mouse/keyboard but it's fantastic getting to play it when I'm not home. The exclusive mask PSN gets has a wicked overlay effect that makes the world black & white but leaves the blood red, it's probably my favorite out of them all.

The locking system is a bit iffy, it locks onto the person closest to you even if that person is in another room. It's lead to some deaths since I tried to lock onto guys running at me and it would snap to someone on the other side of a wall but hey, it's Hotline Miami, I would have probably gotten killed anyway.

The story sounds insane. I'm not sure if it's coming to PSN right away though, but I hope it does!

Imo, it's definitely a game one should play on the vita. The sequel is announced on pc later this year, so I guess it won't be available on the psn until 2014. I'm really interested to know where thing will be going in this sequel! Tons of possibilities!

The game is very artistic and the atmosphere is great. It's actually very visional. You're missing out.

I own it on PC, and was having a hard time getting used to the controls. I think me being a console gamer my whole life is probably why that's happened.

But, lately I've been playing it on my PS3 blasting it with my headset.

It's so good.

It might be because I started playing with mouse and keyboard, but I tried to use a controller a couple of times and just couldn't get used to it. I found both methods of control are advantageous in different situations though, even if I couldn't quite master using the controller.

Played this game recently through Playstation Plus. It's very weird and unique and a just little trashy. I've gotten the secret ending and I still don't quite know what the plot actually was. It's impressive to me that the extreme violence was as effective to me as it was given the rudimentary graphics, but it was still really fun.
