Summary: killer soundtrack - slick gameplay - fun missions - interesting graphics - and intriguing story. Hotline miami is a perfect game for the vita and provides a great pick and play game that always has you coming back for more. The gameplay provides for great bursts of action and allows the stylish violence of the game to show off how great the game looks.
Summary: At first glance, I rolled my eyes when I saw the graphics since I’ve played plenty of “retro” type downloadable games only to be disappointed. This one is actually pretty fun. There is definitely a learning curve and it will take some time to learn the “style” of the game like knowing the advantages/disadvantages of the various masks and weapons. There is a ton of trial and error to passing the level, which actually makes the game incredibly fun.
Summary: + Great Story which might require some further reading to comprehend + Super fun gameplay: lots of variety in terms of weapons + Press that R: super easy and fast level reload which makes it great to try different approaches + Some of the best in game music to keep you company + Different masks provide different abilities + Enemy AI can be hilarious in a positive way + Beautiful Pixel graphics +/- Boss fights are sometimes very tricky and require exceptional timing and...
Summary: I've played this on the PS3 as well, and I have to say that this game feels much more at home on the Vita. All of the complaints I have with the controls for the PS3 version are not an issue here and because of that I found myself completing levels much easier and with more precision than I could on the PS3. Even the graphics, which were already bright and colorful on PS3, seem to be more vivid on the Vita.
Summary: I feel like this is based on a movie but I have no clue about that. Anyways this game is a top down game reminiscent of the older grand theft auto games. You don an animal mask and take jobs which tend to involve killing everyone using whatever you can find. The music and art style is very trippy which goes well with the direction of the game.
Summary: Picked this up on sale for $10 (£6.20) but can now be found cheaper on sale at Steam or Humble store. Gameplay is a solid throwback to classic arcade style games, the pixel art is beautiful and fresh and in many ways makes the violence that much more visceral. Although the game is in many ways mindless violence, requiring you to slaughter hordes of enemies through various levels never have I played a game that made it so pleasurable.
