Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Really violent shooter BUT TONS OF FUN!

First there lots of violence punching people against the wall and smashing there head. that part is not that gory there is punching people and bursting there head open. pin them against the ground and getting a bat and smashing there face. its a bit short but you can unlock lots of free stuff. ALSO! big part there is 2 parts with nudity one you see a woman in the shower showing her breast. and a small strip club where you see 3 woman.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

Again, Really good game, but still not for kids.

I wholly disagree with this review. Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is the sequel to the first Hotline Miami. The basic facts you need to know: It's very violent (pixelated violence), contains a lot of swearing, drug use, and alcohol, and I would only recommend it to kids 14 and up, and MAYBE mature 13 year olds. As for the storyline, Common Sense Media gave the most bullshit review on the storyline EVER. The game picks up where the last one left off- with many characters dealing with the aftermath of the player in the first game. It answers many questions fans had, and ended the series gracefully. And as for the "Confusing Storyline", maybe, if CSM had actually gone in depth into the first and second game instead of skimming it over, they would understand the storyline. As for all the characters, they are all essential to the story. However, if you are on this site, and looking to buy the game for yourself, I don't think your the type of person that would appreciate the masterpiece named Hotline Miami.
