Hotline Miami is more crazed animal than game. It's got the lean, efficient musculature of a predator in the wild, with LSD coursing through its veins and dark purposes in its heart. It wants only for you to use it to kill, beat to death, kill and kill some more. Sure there's a storyline, and some will argue that the extreme violence lurking under the retro-styled shell is merely a metaphor. But those people are wrong. This game lusts for virtual blood.
