Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is the brutal conclusion to the Hotline Miami saga, set against a backdrop of escalating violence and retribution over spilled blood in the original game. Follow the paths of several distinct factions – each with their own questionable methods and uncertain motivations – as unforeseen consequences intersect and reality once again slips back into a brilliant haze of neon and bloodshed.
Blistering combat against punishing opposition will require intense focus as new variables, weapons, and methods of execution are introduced throughout the struggle. Let the striking colors of an unmistakable visual style wash over as you meticulously cut down those that would stand between you and the ultimate meaning behind the massacre. This is the finale, this is the unquestionable end.
Relentless Hostilities: Adjust combat techniques as the narrative shifts between factions and brings unique variations to a familiar approach along with new weapons, movements, and melee attacks.
Enthralling Soundtrack: Over forty pounding tracks from dozens of artists punctuate the savage conflict and bring the larger scale of your actions into focus. New artists join returning favorites like M|O|O|N, Perturbator, Jasper Byrne, Scattle, and El Huervo for an incredible audio massacre.
Custom Level Editor: Design custom levels using characters, enemies, weapons and music tracks from the game and share your creations with others online via Steam Workshop. [COMING SPRING 2015]
I have to admit, i'm kinda dump. I do this, because I barely get the plot of the first game, and i understood even less of it this time. Maybe all of it was a drug induced hallucination while a band of pals watched the expendables? Who knows.... Story aside, this is a very good game. It is a top down twin stick shooter, with a perfect flow. everyone is one shot one kill, even, and especially you. You can use any weapon you take from the enemies, but the ammo is extremely limited, and you have to improvise...and then retry...a lot! On top of that, this time around there are some levels, where you play some soldier or what, who has a pre set weapon, and can only use that, but can replenish his ammo. sounds easier, since he starts with a good gun, but actually those are the hardest levels, for some reason. Highly recommended, but fair warning, if you hate loosing, this game can be annoying at times :)
Is Wrong Number a good continuation? Yes, but unfortunately the game is not without flaws. It is basically the same game as before, the well-known simulator of a skilled killer. As previously we take part of a top-down action where our only goal is to create mayhem. Sadly the biggest difference is the number of playable characters. We have more of them now but that's about it. I was hoping for something more, but still, it was a fun experience.
Hotline Miami 2 is pretty much the same violent fast paced topdown action game as the 1st one was.But it adds more variety in terms of environments, weapons, characters, and a new story. If you liked the 1st this one is a must!
It is the sequel that HM1 deserved.. basically is the same, with a new story and maybe few more weapons.. but i like it! and in this one you can actually understand the story, so if you played the previous one, it is a must buy
I can safely say the first game didn't really grab me, it was fun, sure, but I never felt the desire to finish it. This game however, got me interested in the first few minutes of playing. I love the characters, I love the gameplay, and dear God the music is unbelievably good I can't even. This game is really difficult and requires a ton of patience but it is an absolute BLAST to play! Edit: This game also has pretty much infinite playability since there IS a mod community for it and community made levels, as well as a level editor. So if you're into level editiing like I am, you'll love it even more!
