Alan Wake Files
A brave and deeply disturbing account of one man's attempt to confront the visions that haunted him. Clay Steward's gripping journey takes him to a small town in the pacific Northwest where he follows in the tracks of best-selling author Alan Wake and renegade FBI Agent Robert Nightingale. There he travels ever deeper in the woods and ever farther into the heart of darkness to unravel a series of mysterious events that reach hundreds of years into the past and chillingly into the present.

Alan Wake: Collector's Upgrade simply adds on a sort of "directors" cut level of content to the base game. You will get developer commentary, a very nice illustrated book (pdf), and the soundtrack.
The commentary is interesting for those that want a perspective from the makes of the game, and is unique in that it can play in the background of the game as you play. The pdf book is very nice, and a worthwhile read. The illustrations are good and the whole thing is a great complement to the game.
In particular the soundtrack stands out. As a big soundtrack fan myself, what Petri Alanko put together is pretty great. The songs from the game are simple and straightforward but are very atmospheric and well constructed. Having the popular style music from the Old Gods in the game is also a fun addition.
Worth it for huge Alan Wake fans, this add-on won't disappoint if you want more from Remedy itself.
The Upgrade is Worth ItQwertyfour | Oct. 3, 2013 | See all Qwertyfour's reviews »
This upgrade adds 3 main things to your base Alan Wake game: The soundtrack, a PDF book, and the ability to turn on developer commentary. The sound track alone is worth it because of how powerful the tracks are. After every episode, one of those tracks play and you're left with a stunned feeling because of how the pacing works. Now you'll actually get those soundtracks. The PDF book adds a lot to the story and other things that happen in the Alan Wake universe. I haven't tried the commentary, but I'll definitely turn it on the next play through, but that won't be a while. Overall, you should get this because it is an amazing sound track and book though doesn't add content
An Original ConceptKratzer | June 3, 2013 | See all Kratzer's reviews »
I enjoyed this game if nothing less for its originality. The narration provided by the main character adds some legitimate value to the game, which is not always the case, definitely not for this genre. In addition to that, you are fighting against a force that is loosely defined and which therefore makes it all the more terrifying. When, at any moment, anything around you could take life and try to end you, it adds to the plight of the character dramatically. I give this game very high marks.

Few games capture the horror genre better than this. The only game to scare me more was Silent Hill many years ago, but that might be because I was so much younger back then. The story and design of this game is just brilliant, and if you feel comfortable playing a scripted story, buy this right away.
When Max Payne becomes a horror storyabelfs | Dec. 9, 2012 | See all abelfs's reviews »
These guys of Remedy are f** genious. While I was playing, Max Payne 1 and 2 came to my mind, even when the gameplay and atmosphere are completely different. Alan Wake is a game where you fight shadow monsters who are invincible until they are hit with light. The story is suspenseful, mysterious, and with that particular sense of humour made in Remedy. Highly recommendable.
Play it if you're looking for a more unique action/adventure game with a nice story.
