I’ve been late to more than a few parties in my life (The Last of Us: Remastered I’m looking at you), and Hotline Miami is only the latest in a long line with many more to come I’m sure. But holy moly, am I glad I showed up, even if I was more than just fashionably late.
Included in the latest Sony flash sale, the first Hotline Miami was a no-brainer. I had heard tremendous praise for the game, and it was all true as Trixie (I just made up that phrase now).
This game is fast-paced, addictive and incredibly rewarding. The music rocks and the action is almost too intense at times. The story is Gonzo — and a mindfark, to say the least. This whole game is dripping with mood and style.
Add to that the fact that it is a crossplay game, meaning my save carries over from my Vita to my PS4 and vice versa, and the winning just keeps getting winning-er.
