#### 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. As players dive deeper and deeper into the mystery, they’ll face overwhelming odds, plot twists, and cliffhangers. 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.

It's a game, not a book.drakemirow | Jan. 17, 2014 | See all drakemirow's reviews »
... but it might be the only game that comes close to the excitement you can get from a book. It's narrative is astonishing, accompanied by beautiful graphics, well chosen musical pieces and overall an gaming experience you really should not miss out on.
The additional content in this collector's edition is worth the extra spend money aswell. you get new insights and to be honest it's the way the game was meant to be "played".
A great edition of a wonderful gameLightningMelon | Oct. 23, 2013 | See all LightningMelon's reviews »
Alan Wake is not a perfect game. But it's darn close! The story and atmosphere are top notch, the graphics are great, and it controls wonderfully. It's tense throughout, the combat is fast-paced and heart-pounding, and the characters are wonderfully realized in the voice acting. The Collector's Edition has all sorts of fantastic goodies, too, so if you want a great soundtrack and some other awesome extras, it's absolutely worth the extra cash.
However. The pacing can be a little off. Some sections of the game drag a little bit too long, meaning it can be difficult to play in long stints. If you can get through that minor problem, however, you'll be treated to an absolutely wonderful experience that you cannot get anywhere else. Don't miss it.

The collectors addition is very very good. It gives you the sound track to Alan Wake along with a few other songs and if you've played through it, you would know that the songs are absolutely phenomenal, especially the songs at the end of each episode. After going through the plot, you'll definitely want something more, and this collectors addition adds everything you will need, especially the PDF book which adds a background and extra story. Overall, get this if you liked Alan Wake and enjoy the story.
An amazing story with great graphics.rjb789 | Sept. 22, 2013 | See all rjb789's reviews »
In alan wake the story really steals the show, but it is helped along by brilliant graphics and fun gunplay. I really cared about the two main characters and it is very rare that I do during a game (apart from the walking dead). The atmosphere truly is amazing and adds to the sense of place and the storyline. Every location adds to the feeling that you are being hunted by a dark force. Th ending is stunning, so much so that I sat at my computer for 5 minutes after, processing what I had just experienced. If you love shooters and games with great atmosphere this is a must buy!
