Step into the murderous mind of several distinct characters - each with their own motivations and methods of execution -- as storylines intersect and reality slips away into a haze of neon and carnage. Blistering combat, an unmistakable visual style, and a powerfully intense soundtrack will once again push you to the limit and questioning your own thirst for blood. Expand

    This is not merely a sequel worth playing, it’s one worth consuming again and again until its every secret has been revealed.

    In almost every way, Hotline Miami 2 is a marked improvement on an already tremendous formula. This is a game that had me pumping my fists and laughing with joy throughout my time with it, and I was left despondent by the time it drew to a close.

    Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is a great sequel. It innovates just enough to feel fresh but, unfortunately, takes a bit of player freedom away through its fixed characters.

    Hotline Miami 2 is indeed a fun and exciting action spectacle, but also a little disappointing successor of a great game.

    It’s not that I regret those couple of hours I spent with Wrong Number, but for every advantage there’s a drawback, for every ‘I had fun’ there’s a ‘but’ and for every ‘wow!’ there’s a ‘meh’. [05/2015, p.50]

    Not as good as the original, Hotline Miami 2 delivers a flawed dose of the high speed ultra violence that's fun but not essential.

    The subtitle of Hotline Miami 2 should read "Wrong Decade."

    I'll keep it short. I like the first game better. This one's levels are not designed in a way commensurate with the gameplay mechanics: roomsI'll keep it short. I like the first game better. This one's levels are not designed in a way commensurate with the gameplay mechanics: rooms much larger than your field of view, windows everywhere, every other enemy is a gimmick-kill enemy (like fat men/dogs of the first), and there are guns everywhere. The whole game is like playing paintball where everyone is blindfolded. The story is not interesting and the music is not quite as good as the first. The AI gets hung up on more things like doorways and itself. Buy the first game; if you like it, buy this one on sale but don't expect anything. If you don't like it, don't even think about touching this one. To make matters worse, the level editor (arguably the most crucial new feature, seeing as how terrible the official levels are) did not ship with the game. Sorry guys. Expand
