    While it may not have the most captivating of storylines, the game itself is fun and addictive. It’s a great way to kill some time – no pun intended – and may leave you muttering things under your breath that make others question your sanity. Plus, you can count on new content being added in the future, which will increase the game’s replayability and won’t cost you a cent.

    Party Hard blends a novel concept with a great mix of gameplay mechanics. Throw in the random behavior of NPCs and the tongue-in-cheek style and shutting down parties feels quite good. Gameplay might become repetitive in some situations but, overall, you'll have a nice time with it.

    Its gameplay was addictive yet fun, and there are countless ways to beat a level. Despite being a relatively short game, you can beat each level with different characters to test your youth killing skills.

    Party Hard combines the killing playground of Hitman with the styling advise of Hotline Miami. To creatively disturb parties in a very bloody way is a lot of fun, but it does get boring pretty quickly as well.

    When you’ve wasted 15 minutes watching two pixel people chat each other up but never move to the bedroom to seal the deal; it’s these scenarios where getting caught by the cops or feds becomes a frustration instead of a punishment. It’s almost like some people don’t want to get murdered. Rude.

    Despite owing a lot to Hotline Miami in terms of sight and sound, Party Hard is almost the antithesis of its most obvious influence. On a personal note, it's actually more reminiscent of How to be a Complete Bastard, a similar (and ancient) game involving house parties and a destructive protagonist.

    Party Hard is not a game that rewards players who take chances or attempt to learn the layout of levels, since the developers randomize the stages after each failure. Trap elements, items, and victim gathering points change every time. There's no value in practicing techniques when there's no guarantee players will have a chance to use them.

    Not bad game. Like the concept, but the game a bit repetitive. There are 12 levels and after the 3rd/4th one, they feel quite the same. TheNot bad game. Like the concept, but the game a bit repetitive. There are 12 levels and after the 3rd/4th one, they feel quite the same. The game is not very difficult, so you can beat all 12 levels in 5-7 hours or so.
    The only difficulty of this game when have to kill about 60 people, but using environment tricks you can kill 25-30 at most and then you should track the rest 30-35 people wait when they separate from the group and kill 1 by 1. If not this waiting and tracking 1 by 1 you could easily beat this game in 2-3 hours.
    It is not a bad game, but fo party game sometimes it is quite boring.I like the soundtrack, graphics, idea, and gameplay from this game. But for its repetitiveness and boring moments, it deserves 7 at most, in my opinion.

    The game hardly matches its own description and promises.

    What you actually get is:
    The game starts out with some cutscenes about some murderer that goes from Party to Party.
    Afterwards you get dropped at one, and must kill all people.

    The first stage is merely a tutorial.

    The second stage, and the following stages aren't any different it's basically like this:
    Activate some stage explosions to get rid of a lot of people.
    Then wait for people to get separated, stab them - bug out though because you don't want to be seen with a fresh corpse, that's how you get busted.
    Rinse and repeat, and trust me - this will take quite some time to get all people dead.

    Now, the issue with this is:
    The NPC behavior is randomized, just like what is available in certain stages. For instance, sometimes you get a bomb, sometimes you get spare clothes. Sometimes there's some speaker that blows up, sometimes not.

    So, all you do really is waiting for random AI movement to have them separated so you can kill them.

    And this gets boring really fast.
    Whenever I play it I felt like I'd rather play Hitman: Blood Money, and just try to kill all people at the party level without getting caught.

    I don't have anything against party people though :D - just saying this is what the game could have been like, and instead we got some half-assed assassin game where even Hotline Miami was more about stealth.
