Eskimo Press: "At first, playing Hotline Miami feels like eating a greasy hamburger. It's fast and messy and you know it's bad for you... but you like it. In the moment it satisfies some deep carnivorous urge but it leaves you feeling unclean afterward, as if some of its filth has rubbed off on you. After a while you start to realize that there is more to it than that. It has real depth in terms of gameplay and atmosphere as well as what it has to say about games and the people who play them. That is what keeps you going and why this is a game worth playing."
