More action oriented that the first, but still as good.ADUAN | Oct. 19, 2013 | See all ADUAN's reviews »
The original Alan Wake was a Psychological Action Thriller, which had more of an emphasis on the Thriller part. This game, while still having some surreal and bizarre elements, is more action oriented, with new automatic weapons that make you feel like you are in an action movie.
The gameplay remains largely unchanged from the first, and the story is still engaging. The characters that Alan meets, as well as Alan himself, are all unique and memorable, and the storyline is also a neat concept. For those who enjoyed the original Alan Wake, they should get this one as well.

Alan Wake's American Nightmare confirms the good direction taken by Remedy. This chapter, which in many ways seems to be more a DLC rather than a full game, it shows character and care, as well as to provide the solid gameplay of its predecessor. The exploratory parts are reduced to a minimum and the structure could not convince everyone, but the story, the arcade mode and the fascinating Alan are appreciable. All this is topped by an atmosphere more "american-splatter".

Its the same kind of stuff you would expect from Alan Wake but with a slightly less developed story and more repetitive gameplay. If you enjoyed the gameplay of the previous one, pick this one up but if you preferred Alan Wake for the story, dont bother.
Good start, very disappointing middle and endnightassassin1 | Sept. 12, 2013 | See all nightassassin1's reviews »
The game started off pretty great and I like some of the new features such as the unlockable suitcases of weapons and adding more than just 3 or so original weapons. The problem comes when you get a short way into the game and you return to the beginning of the game. This happens multiple times and was just annoying. Being required to do the same things over and over again is very boring and annoying in a video game. On top of this the size of the map is very small. It is limited to a small town equaling maybe 1/8th the size of the first game. What makes things even more disappointing is that the game play lasts about two hours if you play the main story and do not stray off course. The game could have been so much more and I had such high hopes for this game since the last was so great, but it was a major let down. Do not bother with this game unless you can get it for a very cheap price such as $5. It had potential to be an amazing game and the game is fun to play, but it is far from Alan Wake.
Not the sequel we wanted, but a great little spin-off.crankafoo | Aug. 11, 2013 | See all crankafoo's reviews »
For a smaller title, this game looks fantastic and plays the exact same as its big brother. You'll control series protagonist, Alan Wake, as he battles through the darkness to find his way back to reality. This is, of course, a smaller portion than the man game before it, but is a great addition. You'll be dodging shadow men and taking them down left and right. It does get a little monotonous, but the story and characters keep you going forward to see what's going to happen. If you liked Alan Wake and wanted more after the DLC, get this. You won't regret it.
