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: 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: It's fun, but repetetive. Frustrating and challenging, but not always fair. The controls are awkward and the story is nonsense. I generally love pixel graphics but these graphics are kind of ugly. It looks like everything was made in MS Paint. Quite fun, but very overrated game. Wierd hit detection too.
Summary: Let me start out by saying I enjoy this game, and I never played the computer version. Also this game is EXTREMELY FUN! I don't understand the story that much, but what i get is that you have to kill everybody in the house without dying. Now the people with shotguns are WAY to good, they get me every single time. It's frustrating, but fun. Also to get an A+ grade seems nearly impossible. That may be why I eventually give up on this game.
Summary: Here's a pretty brisk mini review for Playstation's (Vita and PS3) latest and greatest indie offering, Hotline Miami. But why so brisk, why so mini, I here you cry? Because, try as I might, I just can't seem to tear myself away from Miami's clutches for a single moment more than is absolutely necessary. And certainly not without succumbing to the grabby pangs of it's on-tap, massacre-on-the-go addiction, and falling fail to the ensuing neon-flavoured cold turkey! Cluck.
Summary: This is one of the many examples of a well-made indie game that made it's way to the PS3 and PS Vita. If you never played Hotline Miami on PC, buy it. If you have it on PC but have a PS3 or PS Vita, buy it again. It is an unmissable, epic game.
Summary: While this looks good and still an awesome game, there's something that must bother some people: To lock-on a target, you must use the touch-screen or the square button. I was really excited to play this on the PSVita, but making the game harder like that is making me regret (a little) for this purchase. If they update the game with the possibility to lock-on with the rear-touch, I would enjoy it even more. It's better to play it on PS3 for now.
Summary: This is an example of well-made indie game that made it's way to the PS3 and PS Vita. If you never played Hotline Miami on PC, buy it. If you have it on PC but have a PS3 or PS Vita, buy it again. It is a very fun game.
