The Hong Kong Massacre is a little janky, but it mostly replicates the wild Hong Kong action cinema that inspired it with aplomb.

Overall, The Hong Kong Massacre is a treat. Yes, the game is one-note, focusing entirely on the gunplay. But it’s a really good note!

There is fun to be had with The Hong Kong Massacre, but I don't believe it lives up to the years of hype following it. With some finer tuning and better balance, this could be a real contender for the Hotline Miami clone crown. As it is, this is an okay time that wears out its welcome well before the end credits start rolling.

The Hong Kong Massacre is an intense and gratifying experience that Hotline Miami's fans and lovers will enjoy the most. It has its flaws (low-res videos, difficulty peaks at some points, gameplay repetition...) that draw it from being a must, but VRESKI's first game delivers with strong visuals, rhythm and challenge.

Fun but plain action game in the vein ot Stranglehold x Hotline Miami. There's not enought variety to keep you interested for long, but at least is an intense action game.

The Hong Kong Massacre's inspiration is clear, but unfortunately, it doesn't have the gameplay, the personality, or the energy to stand alongside it. The slow-mo shooting can be fun, but with tough enemies and a janky dodge manoeuvre, you'll more often than not be frustrated by death after death. With a little more polish, it could've been an entertaining romp, but as it stands, redeeming qualities are few and far between.

The Hong Kong Massacre is a great Hotline Miami clone, which offers a colorful and really exciting action.

The Hong Kong Massacre is a game that will leave you with vivid memories. The awesome stunts you pulled off, the impossible feats you were able to achieve, and the crazy killing sprees will all stick in your mind. It is a game that perfectly executes on a vision and offers some of the most gratifying few hours you can find in gaming today.

The Hong Kong Massacre is a classic case of style over substance. The beauty of the title's slow-motion bullet ballet is just a fancy cover for its frustrating, un-evolving gameplay.

Unfortunately, The Hong Kong Massacre bode well beyond anything that came into our hands. The game seems more the son of the attempt to emulate a great success than the birth of a concrete and coherent vision.

The Hong Kong Massacre is the kind of game you'd love to love. It's a very pleasant arcade twin stick shooter that makes us more than efficiently feel like we are in a John Woo movie. But it quickly show its limits, as new ideas or mechanics never show up to give us more than expected.

The Hong Kong Massacre teeters between magnificent to mediocre quite often. Its gunplay mechanics are good, but the dodgy AI will ruin the experience due to your very high fragility and their impeccable aim. The levels look awesome at first, especially when the action gets kicked up, but the environments blend into one another after a while. The trial-and-error nature can get tedious, but if you don't mind that, then you'll find lots of high-tension action here. The Hong Kong Massacre isn't a must-have, but it isn't a bad title to play, either.

The Hong Kong Massacre is obsessed with fist-pumping, high-octane action and is a great offering for action fans that enjoy the likes of Hotline Miami. The first two hours are largely spent finding the game's wavelength, but the pulsing energy of the design helps propel you along. Before long, you'll be swan diving through windows and lighting up rooms with gunfire in pure action bliss.

The fact that it was made by just two people does show in a lot of areas such as the visuals, story, and repetitive boss battles but none of those outweighed the good times I had with it.

The Hong Kong Massacre is another example of how a game's flaws can hold it back, not allowing it to become what it could have been. The game is really fun at its core, but problems like limited gameplay and severe performance issues (on the PC version) have dragged down the overall experience.

The Hong Kong Massacre has nothing new to offer, the levels are linear and the boss fights are repetitive, and the story is not appealing either. All that said, it is still a very fun game that can even be addictive if you take it seriously.

A fun top-down shooter, The Hong Kong Massacre is a mirror for the action films it's inspired by. Entertaining, bloody, and fun, but lacking in depth and story. If John Woo is your favorite director, this is an easy recommendation. Everyone else will still find a perfectly fun and serviceable shooter, but your mileage may vary.
