Hotline Miami is a Fast Paced Top Down Action Game Developed By Dennaton Games and Published by Devolver Digital.

Hello Everyone! This is the Hotline Miami 1 Review! if You Liked it. Click Like! if You Disliked it! Click Dislike! and Maybe Leave a Reply!

On To the Review!



NOTE: THIS REVIEW CONTAIN HIGH LEVEL OF VIOLENCE, IF YOU ARE SENSITIVE TO THIS MATERIAL CLICK BACK.

Gameplay
Lets Start with the gameplay!

Alright so, Hotline Miami 1 Is Fast paced, So It requires you to think sometimes about your Move. Upon Starting a level you are given a Mask Selection screen. Where You Of course Select a mask to wear. Each Mask Gives you an ability (Except for 1) For Example




The Dennis Mask, When Selected You Will Spawn With a Knife. Or




The Brandon Mask, That will make you run faster, Best for Speedrunners.


The Unique Mask abilities are Really Cool! And Offer a Challenge for when you want to unlock some!

They are really for how the player is and how he/she will play.

Anyways in HLM1 (Hotline Miami 1) It is way more Fast paced (As i mentioned earlier) and Way More Challenging.Executions are Faster, Melee Weapons are Faster, Weapons Have More Ammo. and Also, Weapons are Unlockable! No, You Dont Select the weapons like masks That's not what i meant, Once you unlock a weapon in some levels The unlocked weapon will spawn!

I Wish they kept the Unlockable weapons feature in HLM2


Time For Another Part! Boss Fights!

There are Boss Fights in this game! Not gonna Name any, but the Boss Fights are amazing! and Very Very Fun! and are Kinda Hard But, are still fair! Sadly There are only 4 Boss Fights in the game. And None in HLM2 (Unless You Wanna Count The Final Part)

Anyway The Developers did a Great Job With The Gameplay Styles

8/10

Sound
The Sound in this game isn't Much Just Regular Gunshots and Melee Attack Noises Other Games Might Have better Sound.

But!


The Soundtrack For HLM1! Is What it is known For!

Just Listen!

Scattle - Knock Knock

Hotline Miami -  Deep Cover

The Soundtrack is Awesome!

Sound Gets an 8/10!

Story
The Story in the HLM Series is Confusing and is really hard ti tel without spoiling the game, But i'll try my best to do so.

HLM1 Starts off the the main protagonist Jacket Receiving Phone Calls From 50 Blessings After Signing up for their newsletter. What the Phone Calls tell him to do is Basically Kill The Russian Mafia. So, Thats That Universe!

The Alternate Follows a character Named Biker a Person Who also Signed up For 50 Blessing and Gets the Phone Calls, However He Wants Out, and he Does whatever He Can To Get Out of 50 Blessings.

The Story in HLM1 Is Kinda Confusing and Not Much is available in HLM1 However HLM2 Explains More.

Graphics
Much Like Its Sequel Hotline Miami 2 also has a retro 80's Feel to It! Even having a Rainbow Void!

and it also Features!





You Guessed it! Violence!



Yep..


And in this one the game a has a more VHS Tape Feel/ Style to it.



The Game Looks Kinda Good To!


Graphics Get a 8/10!

Difficulty

HLM1 Was Way To Easy, Well, For me. I Dont know why. However, I was playing on a lower spec system (My Awful laptop im writing this review on) Which makes the game Slow Mo. But Most People Say that it is really hard so, im not sure. I Did try it on a higher end system and it was Easier. So For Me Difficulty would be a 5. However For Most it will Be a 9.

Depth
How Much does this game offer? Quite a Bit!

With replayable missions, a ranking system, Secrets and unlockables this game has lots!

In order to unlock masks you have to either find them, or get a high score! and In order to unlock weapons you must get a high score!

and Secrets are for Bikers Missions but are found on Jackets Missions. They're mainly for the Alternate Universe.

Conclusion
Should You get Hotline Miami 1.

Answer


YESSSSSSSSS! This game is So Dang Fun It will leave you wanting more! and there is more! Especially For HLM2 Level Editor! Which Came out recently! Buy This Game! it Will Be Soooo Worth it!

I Will See You Guys In The Next Review!

datiel12 : I love this game a ton, it's so very well done, it's balls to the wall tough, the gameplay is very good, it's got a great story behind it that I would love to see turned into a movie, it's gritty, it's violent, and the music is damn good. I own the sequel, need to get around to playing it. I also have Bloodbath Kavkaz, and then I wanna get that free game that they are releasing on Steam in December, can't remember the name of it at this time. Great review.
