Hotline Miami PC Review
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
So this last couple of day I have been playing around with Hotline Miami, many of you may not have a clue what this game is all about and quite frankly after a few days of playing it myself, I’m not sure how to even begin this telling you about it.
I threw the question to our eTeknix Facebook fans through the week which game you wanted to see me review this weekend and Hotline Miami was the popular choice, so here I am playing the frantic 2D action indie title from the developers at Dennaton Games. By developers I mean the two people that made it, Dennis Wedin and Jonatan Söderström.
Today I’ll be looking at the PC edition of the game which is available on Steam for a very modest £6.99, which is a bargain for most any game.
This game caught my attention simply because 1, it looks completely and utterly mental and 2, because it has already walked away with several top awards from Euro Gamer, Rock, Paper, Shotgun and it cleaned up a Rezzed, drawing plenty of press coverage and favourable mentions from the gaming press and public.
The first thing I want to show you about Hotline Miami is the trailer, which showcases the games graphics, music and gameplay perfectly. I won’t be going nuts with screenshots in this review as it purposely has a low resolution and retro vibe to it that just doesn’t shine through in screenshots and I want people to see it in action. Check out the trailer below then well move onto the story and gameplay aspects of the game.
