Hotline Miami Video Reivew
on February 25, 2013 at 10:29 AM
Hotline Miami has received a lot of attention lately for being somewhat of an indie darling on the PC and with the game gearing up for a PSN release, we figured now is a good time for the AO crew to dig into the game and give you our two cents on the bloody romp through 1980′s Miami. Please enjoy...
Very interesting game

Yo the G.I. reviewer was just totally mad that he got rocked by the goons in this game. I'll admit you have to replay the stages a lot but the game is totally consistent, there are no cheap deaths. Nothing happens that you wont be able to see coming and prepare for if you have your head in the game...
A thought provoking look into violence

At first I didn't know what to think of Hotline Miami. I was frustrated at times, and completely enraptured at others. It started as a mixed bag of an amazing presentation mixed with unfamiliar design. Once the game took hold of me, it never let go. The incredible sound design, the strange, disorienting...
Hotline Miami Review: A Concise Kill
on December 09, 2012 at 03:42 PM
You wake up, you get a call, you kill people. You wake up, you get a call, you kill people. Such may seem to be the gentle tediousness of Hotline Miami but underneath this rut remains an ostentatious display of style and substance. The murders are gruesome, the environment equally so. But what may lack...

You kick the door open, smashing into the goon standing behind it, without flinching you smash his head into the ground, and grab his crowbar, swinging it into two other goons' heads, their brains splattering everywhere. What I described is a pretty gruesome scenario, but its what you do in almost...
Style over Substance

I run down a hallway and wait by a door. A guard walks past the door and I swing it open, knocking him down. I dash at a shotgunner before he has time to react and swing my katana, decapitating him. I turn back to the stunned guard and finish him off with a quick sword swipe. I check the next room. A...

Hotline Miami Review: A stylish and violent beat 'em up you want to keep playing
on November 05, 2012 at 05:06 PM
Hotline Miami is a game all about juxtaposition. The game is styled as a retro, top down 8-bit beat ‘em up, but the incredibly violent gameplay surrounding it is not something you would have seen during the NES era (at least not without any large amount of controversy). The music and color palette...
