Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number - Teaser Trailer
Mar 13, 2015Excelling in so many aspects, from its eye-popping visual style and electronic soundtrack, through to its perfectly balanced twin-stick action and smart, surprising story, Wrong Number lives up to the legacy of the original. We’d go so far as to say it’s essential.
Mar 12, 2015Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is one of those rare sequels like DOOM 2, Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metroid Prime 2 that seems identical to its predecessor, but manages to be a different beast entirely. It’s harder, more story-driven and even more subversive, and seems to specifically made to destroy the expectations of those who have mastered the first game. It might not be as pure and focused as Hotline Miami 1, but it’s everything we wanted from a sequel and way, way more.
Mar 17, 2015Hotline Miami 2 is everything we knew from the original turned up to 11. Some things could have been crafted differently (especially the way the story is presented) but the end result is stunning nonetheless. Hotline Miami 2 is the best incarnation of the series and a must buy for every fan of the original. Everyone else should wait for a price drop - this game can make you crazy frustrated.
Mar 13, 2015Although Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is more narratively ambitious than its prequel, something has been lost in the transition. The levels, while good for the most part, simply do not match up those seen in the original game. Nevertheless, Wrong Number still stands as an excellent closing act for the series all the same.
Mar 24, 2015Hotline Miami 2 cares deeply for politics. It wants to make its brutality meaningful, to say something about media and culture and desensitization. But its sprawling narrative only shows that it has forgotten its own lessons: the way Hotline Miami plays, its spatial violence puzzle, is what Hotline Miami means.
Mar 17, 2015Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number still sits atop the same solid, brutally violent core that made the first game a success, but it inherits all of its predecessor’s flaws as well, and buries them within a bloated, altogether less satisfying experience. While the sequel isn’t without its occasional charms, there’s no doubt Hotline Miami would be destined for a greater legacy had it called it quits after the first spree.

It is, in my opinion, a necessity to first play the original because its sequel spikes in difficulty much faster and continues to ramp up, and because of story reasons. I personally adore the huge areas with so many enemies because even though it can take an hour of retries, figuring out a path where you can get a 20x multiplier is really satisfying. The story is fantastic, I was kind of sour on the ending at first, but through more understanding of the story by the end of the second playthrough, I was thoroughly satisfied with everything, and adored and hated characters appropriately after everything was said and done because the game is well written. As for content, the game is 7-8 hours long with a Hard mode where the levels are mirrored, along with a level editor that will be coming soon. My only gripe is that I want more Hotline Miami through a sequel or by purchasing a full retail disk. I came for the gameplay, but ended up enjoying the narrative more. Hotline Miami 2 is the best game I've purchased on PS4, and that's saying something considering the small team that worked on it while triple A developers make lackluster titles such as the Order. If you liked Hotline Miami 1, give this a shot.… Expand

The good thing about that is that the game is what it is and is still a massive challenge to complete and an even greater challenge to complete all levels with highest rating.
The game deserves a massive thumbs up from here, the only reason it's not getting a 10 is the very same reason, that it's "just" the same as before.… Expand

The gameplay is pretty muchThis is quite a nice little game; it is very similar to the first one so if you liked HM1 you’ll like this one.
The gameplay is pretty much the same, some interesting differences might be that you’ll use quite a few characters this time, and each one of them has kind of specific abilities (much like the mask thing in HM1). The gameplay is still very fast and brutal, and not very forgiving, you’ll die quite a lot (it’s twin stick action), the stages are also significantly bigger in this one and the game is longer. So summarising, it is basically more of the same, slightly better.
The story is told in a much more direct way this time and it is a good one. In terms of story, it is highly related to the first game, so I suggest you play both games in a relatively short space of time or chances are you’re gonna miss a lot of small things. Storytelling is more direct but it’s still kind of vague, you’ll have to pay attention to follow the thing; it is really good so if you don’t see the full picture after completing the game, I would suggest you do some online reading; it is worth it.
Other than that, graphics are the same, old styled, and the OST is amazing, maybe even better than HM1 OST which is quite an achievement considering HM1 OST was already awesome.
Anyway same old thing, so if you liked HM1, you won’t be disappointed, although it might feel too similar. For those who didn’t play the game, this is a fast paced twin stick action game, not very forgiving but not too hard. If you like that kind of game and you don’t mind (or like) about old styled graphics, get it! most likely you’ll like the game.… Expand

Hotline Miami 2 is twitch action, murder simulator. Ultra brutality just like the first game.
If you've played the first Hotline Miami, you wont have too much with this one. But if you're new to the series, prepare to die....A lot. The gameplay is challenging, you one hit the enemies, and vice versa. This makes every level you complete rewarding, and when you do complete a level, you'll feel a great amount of satisfaction. Game's story is like I said, bloody, brutal, and holy hell, is it dark. Not gonna spoil anything.
The game's art style is retro style, NES, it really doesn't bother me in any way. The soundtrack is amazing. The music seems to fit in with the game's style, one of the best composers in the soundtrack would have to be Jasper Byrne. He made great music for the first, and even better in the second. You're gonna enjoy every song while you're committing massive amounts of genocide.
There's one problem with the game though, that makes the game especially hard, that's the controls
Now with console versions, oh my god, are you gonna rage. The controls just aren't just tailored to a controller, so it makes the game extremely hard to play.
Other than that, it's a pretty awesome game, but if you're thinking on getting the game, just get it on pc.… Expand
