An excellent game!

d2dcontre | July 2, 2013 | Review of Alan Wake: Collector's Edition

Alan Wake is a game that knows how to build atmosphere well. The sights and sounds of Brightfalls are oftentimes breath-taking. The characters are brilliantly written and animated as well, to the point where they almost seem like real people.

The gameplay is solid, too. Dodging and shooting are most definitely fun. The only reason why I gave it a 9 out of 10 is the aiming. It's a little janky. As a gameplay mechanic, the flashlight sounds good on paper--but actually using it feels really off and it's quite difficult to aim.

Still, it's definitely a game you will want to play!
