    Addictive, challenging and most importantly fun to play, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is an ambitious sequel which excels in its story telling, artistic style and soundtrack, Bloody Brilliant.

    Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is a nice sequel, although there are quite some issues to talk about. It has similar mechanics and adds new ones that aren't as good as the old ones. Layout design and the tortuous plot unfolding weigh down a game that was really straightforward. Even so, it's enjoyable, mainly because it has one of the best soundtracks ever.

    To follow up one of the greats like Hotline Miami was never going to be easy and this fails to improve on it in every single way. It is still a decent game though, just don’t expect the second coming!

    A hugely disappointing sequel that seems to misunderstand what made the original gameplay great and is tediously self-indulgent when it comes to its story and violence.

    Very rarely a sequel deserves a 10, sometimes they made everything bigger just for the sake of it and something gets lost in the middle. ThatsVery rarely a sequel deserves a 10, sometimes they made everything bigger just for the sake of it and something gets lost in the middle. Thats not the case with this amazing masterpiece of gameplay, storytelling and soundtrack. Take any big production game from 2015 and this little gem will beat it with ease, if you like great challenges while hypnotized with some of the best music to ever grace a videogame please hop in and you won´t be dissapointed, and if you played the first one, rest assured this is even better yes! Eventually things will be harder than the first but you´re already an experienced player (im glad its obvious that the makers had in mind that everyone playing this already beat the first so they increased the difficulty) in the end you wont believe how good you can become while making of every stage an excercise in choreagraphy. GET THIS, and in ps vita is the best of course! Expand

    HM2 is much bigger than HM1 was. The core game play remained the same. Levels are large, probably too large making the game more of a puzzleHM2 is much bigger than HM1 was. The core game play remained the same. Levels are large, probably too large making the game more of a puzzle game and also causing too many retries. The game is no longer as fast and fluid as HM1 was. I hated the fact that it was not possible to save during individual stages of a single scene taking into account that stages were huge. I also experienced occasional crashes. The story took a hit in my option, but it is still ok. Same with music not as good as in the first game. But overall HM2 is still a fantastic game one of the best on the vita platform right now.

Any effort made to add to theThis is a severely disappointing follow-up to one of my favorite games of recent years (also played on Vita). Any effort made to add to the formula is offset by the game prohibiting you from enjoying yourself. The lock-on system works only when it feels like (both the square button to auto-lock or the touchscreen), and there is no rhyme or reason to when it will eventually work (seems to vary by level, too). In one level, enemies will sometimes clip through walls and kill you, or run outside the map, circle around the whole level and get you that way, just in case you needed some more nonsense to deal with. What really baffles me is that I had no such issues with the first game - by the same creative and porting team.
    Wait for a patch, and then maybe the game will stop being difficult for all the wrong reasons and can live up to the standard set up by its superior predecessor. The greatness that was Hotline Miami is still in there, but the game doesn't want you to have it all to yourself.

Hotline Miami 1 was incredible - tight controls, addictive and challenging gameplay, unique and nostalgic graphics...but the sequel is a train wreck for one reason: regular crashing during missions. There is nothing more frustrating than finding challenge not in the game play itself but in the stability of the game. I regularly complete 4 floors of a mission and have the game crash just before the final score screen. I am forced to complete the mission again...and then low and behold...it happens again two missions later. Advice to potential buyers: for series virgins - play the first game, for series veterans - replay the first game. STAY AWAY from this sequel. Expand

    Broken gameplay mechanics with random deaths and stupid level-design where you can catch a bullet anywhere because of glass walls. Best tacticBroken gameplay mechanics with random deaths and stupid level-design where you can catch a bullet anywhere because of glass walls. Best tactic - shoot once and wait while stupid enemies go to your position and kill them all one by one on the edge. All of original game weaks is right here and multiple by 2. This is not hardcore or normal gameplay, this is lazy design. Go to game design courses and learn how to do normal games, **** Expand
