* SpiritualSuccessor: ''Hotline Miami'' has a ''{{VideoGame/Hitman}}-like premise for the fact that you have to restart a lot, learn the levels, learn enemy patterns and so on. If you enjoyed ''Hitman'', you won't have any problems.

It is the spring of 1989. Tensions between the US and Russia are at an all-time high in the wake of the "Russo-American Coalition," and TheMafiya has cemented itself as the most powerful organized crime ring in Miami. You don't get out much, and your only friend is a guy with a beard who works at the grocery store.[[labelnote:*]]Or was it the bar? The video store? The pizza place? You can't recall.[[/labelnote]] One day, you receive a strange message on your answering machine telling you that your order of cooking ingredients has arrived, and that you should follow the recipe carefully.

Problem is, you didn't order anything. The "ingredients" are rubber masks, the "recipe" a threatening note instructing you to perform a hit on some Russian Mobsters and await further orders on your answering machine, threatening consequences if you don't follow through. From then on, it's a downward spiral as you continue killing at the behest of the voicemails, struggling to stay sane and survive, all the while hoping that maybe - just maybe - [[MindScrew you'll find out what the hell is going on.]]

** The game has a hilarious TakeThat to its players. If your play style involves a lot of hiding and sneaking, the game will refer to your play style as "COWARD" when the score screen appears at the end of the level.

[[InsaneTrollLogic Yeah, that's right.]] The game calls you a coward for being careful [[NintendoHard in a game where]] [[OneHitPointWonder one minor, even negligible, mistake can end your life.]]
