Hotline Miami - PC

Ultra violent, over the top action mixed with a pounding 1980s style soundtrack and early 90s visuals makes Hotline Miami an incredibly decadent good time!

Undescribable. Even if most of my buddies detest it, Hotline Miami is for me an absolute masterpiece of elegant gore and chaotic music. Can't wait for the sequel.

The game is fun and fast. It doesn't give you much of a tutorial, or an objective, just GO without dying or being caught in some cases. The story is actually fairly enjoyable and deep for such a low-maintenance game. Like many other great games, it's easy to learn but fun to master.

im sorry, it lacks polish and could have been developed better.but you can choose to play like an indie game, or a long session(never sleep) type of game

great classic looking game. The best part is that it is a quick game to be played in small sessions(one challenging level at a time) great style and music help it become a great overhead old school shooter.

I love this game. It doesn't waste your time with needless padding and almost every moment of it delivers a high concentration of fun. You'll probably die more times than you succeed but its challenge level is so perfectly-balanced that you'll want to give it one more go. Getting back into the action is quick and painless. Success in tricky bits can come from puzzling over the problem, taking it slowly and stealthily or going in guns blazing. The music must be heard, the game must be played!

Makes your blood pumping to the beat of the soundtrack with its crazy pace and atmosphere. Virtual violence at its finest. However, the crown jewel of the game is gameplay, as it should always be. My personal 2012 GOTY.

It's a good game, but it lacks polish. Sounds great though, and I love the style.

This game is just brutal, both in it's violence and difficulty. But it still is a ton of fun and very replayable. It's surreal tone, visuals, and awesome soundtrack really convey the plot in such a unique way that the game really stands out from the crowd. Despite a few nitpicks I have, the game is a lot of fun to be had and is perfect for anyone who wants a dose of weirdness and a challenge.

For 15 dollars this is an amazing game. This game is a tough and mostly fair, with a great story and awesome soundtrack I highly recommend.

Fast, brutal fun, and a kick-ass soundtrack to boot. There's so much to like about this game, give it a shot.

Excellent soundtrack and top quality gameplay.

Good soundtrack, great gameplay, and acid 80's visuals make this game a real treat! Retro-style difficulty and trial-n-error gameplay might turn off some people, though. It's also not very long, you can beat this game in 5 hours even if you're not all that good at it. There are some nice unlockables though, so it does have a lot of replay value. This game rewards fast brutal gameplay and skill, so don't pull any punches!

This game is like a fever dream, going from one level to next as the colors and sway of the graphics hypnotize you until the final screen. I felt compelled to get the best combos but I just could not pull them off all the time as getting the best rank in each level takes a bit of practice. Thankfully dying just sends you back to the start of the screen so there's no worries of a game over. I'd say the music is by far the best thing about the game. The soundtrack is just so amazingly alluring!

Going in I didn't expect this game to be that great but by now i've spent tons of hours playing it. The music and sound effects are great and the story is just good enough to keep you wanting to play.

Do you like hurting other people? Hotline Miami puts you in the driving seat of a drive-by murderer going from room to room taking out gangsters in creative adrenaline pumping action game, both PC and Vita versions are worth getting your hands on as both have responsive and precise controls. The OST also makes the game worth a purchase with it's Drive-esq soundtrack, making the entire experience wholesome.

Absolutely amazing. The soundtrack is fantastic, the late 80's/early 90's vibe is awesome and the gameplay is truly addicting. Just be prepared to die...a lot. This game is very difficult but it's also the reason why it's so great as each time you get killed, you'll try to think of different approaches to clearing out rooms full of enemies. A must buy for anyone looking for a downloadable game.

HOTLINE MIAMI review

RECENT CGR COMMUNITY REVIEWS

 Pokemon: FireRed - Game Boy Advance
"This is a good game but I still like leafgreen a lil better because of the exclusive pokemon, although I had this first. I really feel like this didn't improve much on the gen 1 games except you won't have to worry about this running out of battery as easily as the originals. There are some things that are new like the ability to travel to another location after u beat it and the ability to rebattle trainers in game. Get both of these remakes if u like pokemon." - lukefonfabre388

 Truxton - Sega Genesis
"I get a kick out of the Truxton song. LOL! "I AM TRUXTON! SCREW YOU!"" - dustinnunn1988

 Beyond Good and Evil - PlayStation 2
"This is no longer an underrated gem, but if you got a ps2 get this if you got a ps3 try the HD version. This is an amazing game it's got great graphics, good gameplay mechanics, a great soundtrack, a killer story, an incredible world, the stealth gameplay is great, and it all comes together for one heck of a game. Now if a sequel ever gets made let's hope it's even better then this since they could improve upon an already amazing game." - lukefonfabre388

 Mega Man X Collection - PlayStation 2
"Incredible. Collects MegaMan X 1-6, as well as Battle and Chase as an unloackable title. The presentation is cool looking, although somewhat basic and streamlined compared to MegaMan Anniversary Collection. However, it works here. It's cool to compare the SNES era titles to the PS1 era titles. My one gripe is that the only version of X3 is the PS1 version - which is ok, but the music and sound effects sound somewhat offputting - would have been nice to have the option. A must have for X fans!" - svenbtb

 Mega Man Anniversary Collection - Nintendo GameCube
"Essential must-have for Mega Man fans. It collects Mega Man 1-8, as well as two Mega Man arcade games which were previously never outside Japan (which are awesome multiplayer games). The presentation here is great too - you can tell this was a collection made with a lot of love - including unlockable artwork and music. The only downside is that on the GCN version the buttons are swapped - which can be slightly annoying but honestly sn't too bad. If you like Mega Man, you need this." - svenbtb
