This was one of the best action games I have ever played (I started with Unreal in 1998).

I would probably rank this my #2 action game (#1 being the original Unreal Tournament).

  • The game is just soaked with delicious cyberpunk Akira-meets-BladeRunner atmosphere
  • Soundtrack is so ingenious that I still listen to it on repeat, about a year after playing the game, and it doesn't get old

Long story short, this is not just a yet another Hotline Miami knockoff. Definitely GOTY 2017 for me.




My favorite review of this game:

I'll have to give this one a pass, the gameplay is nice enough but music was  a miss for me, the story is just boring and the ending "twist", if you can call it that is just outright stupid.


For a better game of similar style and gameplay, I would recommend Hotline miami 1 & 2

It's alright for a single-run beat-em-up/shooter; get on sale and enjoy the soundtrack and fights.
