Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Review Summary

FairCritic Consensus

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, in the end, is a poor sequel. Not because it is necessarily a bad game, but as it only reiterates what the first game did, but nowhere near as impactful. Critics agree that it's greatest crime is that it is too big, both in its actual level design and its ambitions.

Critic Reviews for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number

Hotline Miami 2 leaves me conflicted. There's lots to love here, but the structure makes it difficult to explore and exploit. It's still an absolute riot to play, and the urge to press on remains compulsive, despite the narrative hi-jinx. Its failings are never enough to truly spoil things - Hotline Miami 2 is definitely to be recommended. It's the sequel that everyone expected, perhaps. But I'm not sure it's the sequel the original truly deserved.

Restrictive design decisions sap the energy from a series that revels in it, and technical issues deal the killing blow.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is a relentless, rhythmic, and brutal game of killing fast, and often dying even faster.

Adding good new ideas to the formula, but unable to implement them without diluting the overall experience, Hotline Miami 2 isn't a disaster, but certainly lacks the original's fiery vitality.

Hotline Miami's thrillingly brutal gameplay is stretched to the point of breaking in this aesthetically pleasing, but otherwise disappointing sequel.
