About the Game
When the wife of the best-selling writer Alan Wake disappears on their vacation, his search turns up pages from a thriller he doesn’t even remember writing. A Dark Presence stalks the small town of Bright Falls, pushing Wake to the brink of sanity in his fight to unravel the mystery and save his love.
Presented in the style of a TV series, Alan Wake features the trademark Remedy storytelling and pulse-pounding action sequences.

It’s only by mastering the Fight With Light combat mechanic that they can stay one step ahead of the darkness that spreads across Bright Falls.

Suspense. Alan Wake is all about suspense. Alan Wake is a game for those who appreciate story above all else. It's also a living testament (aside from the Walking Dead) that video games have evolved from just plain entertainment, but also the perfect medium when it comes to narrative. This is the perfect game for anyone seeking out an unforgettable experience. An experience both terrifying and beautiful.

Ok,so maybe not from fright, although there is a very unsettling atmosphere about the game. But there is so much suspense in the story that you won't be able to leave your computer for hours. The haunting atmosphere, gripping soundtrack, excellent voice acting and superb story make Alan Wake seem more than just a game. The episode system at the end of each chapter make it seem like you are taking the reins of a blockbuster tv show, with each chapter ending with clips from the next and beginning with recaps from the past. The graphics are very nice and smooth with no bugs anywhere, and the audio is just beautiful. Controls can take a bit to get used to, but if you've played Alone in the Dark or the old Resident Evils the system is very similar. Overall this game is near perfect. You can tell alot of work and effort went into making the best game possible.

Alan Wake is one of my favorite games, if not my favorite of all time. I have two reasons for that; #1, Just like the protagonist, Alan Wake, I'm also an author. #2, Alan Wake is a hell of a game from the beginning to the end. As an author I know how a writer's block look like and how the author may feel, especially when he and his girlfriend arrives to the quiet town of Bright Falls to take a vacation, just to be far away from the job and the daily problems. But even if everything is quiet, you can feel that the typical sleepy town is more than it seems for the first time. The mystery is in the atmosphere. That was the moment when the game grabbed me and didn't let me go until the very-very end (+2 chapters of DLCs included.). The protagonist and the co-characters are believable and lovable characters, even if some of them, especially Barry is a bit repulsive for the first time. Each of the characters have clear character development and their motives and actions are clear from the beginning to the end. But there is always more and more secrets you'll learn about each of them, be it Alan Wake or the other characters. This game is a story centric game, but the gameplay is also great. In Alan Wake a mysterious, spooky town with deadly secrets waiting you to discover, while the next book of yours what you've never written, yet somehow it does exists, will show the path in your 17+ hours long adventure to reveal the deadly secrets of Bright Falls. The great atmosphere, the polished combat, the clever, twisted storytelling and memorable characters make Alan Wake's quest thrilling from the beginning to the end. Highly-highly recommended!
Twin Peaks: The Game?videopower77 | Jan. 25, 2013 | See all videopower77's reviews »
Remedy delivered another fantastic third person psychological thriller with Alan Wake. The PC port is perfect and the graphics are excellent. The game has a LOT of nods and references to the classic Lynch show, Twin Peaks, which is awesome.
Play American Nightmare afterward as it continues the story and features a more action focused gameplay. The soundtrack is also excellent. Pick this game up today!
