While The Hong Kong Massacre has flaws aplenty, there’s still some fun to be had for a few hours. It’s certainly enjoyable in short bursts and will likely scratch an itch for fans of the genre, so it’s just such a shame that the lack of final polish and some uninspired design decisions hold it back from coming close to joining its peers as the best of their kind.
The Hong Kong Massacre is an intense and spectacular shoot-’em-up with a stylish slow-motion hook. While some corners have been cut in terms of its presentation and boss fights, those issues are easy to overlook when the core gunplay is so fiercely challenging, unashamedly violent, and relentlessly enjoyable.
The Hong Kong Massacre is a game with a specific goal--to capture the feeling of an over-the-top John Woo-style slow-motion diving kill shot, and it succeeds. The game's faults are washed away whenever you leap out of the way of a bullet and quickly take out the person who fired it. It's a game that sticks with you when you're not playing it, as you think through different approaches to the room you died in last time.
