Not the sequel I was expectingspycid | June 11, 2013 | See all spycid's reviews »
The original Alan Wake was a true psychological thriller game, however this game is more of an action third person shooter and deviated a lot from it's predecessor. Despite the game being a spin-off this game fails to reach the standards which was set sky high by Remedy Entertainment. Still if you are an Alan Wake fan like me then you would definitely want to try this.

Alan wake american nightmare is a very good game, is the beginning of what could become the second installment of alan wake. In this game you have many improvements over the 1: -Better graphics, on this issue is appreciated much faster game without a mega computer -Increased exploration of scenarios: not as linear as 1,, in this there is enough exploration NEWS: You can say that NO WEAPONS, not like the original was revolver.Aqui shotgun and can be found assault rifles, combat shotguns, submachine guns, new revolvers, the magnum, the nail gun and the carbine. We ask things to characters in the story (interacuar) (this could be a very good idea to put the second installment but is not as linear) -Variety possessed to face (that's very motivating) YOU CAN SAY THAT THERE A MONSTER BEST: ARCADE MODE: This mode is spectacular, there is nothing better than face to wake waves possessed, although not many places where you can play (just the inico of what could become an alan wake 2) -Alan's story is good movements are almost the same as above the sound is very very good
THE BAD: the game is short
CONCLUSION: For me it is much better than 1, but everything else shorter is better

Alan Wake's American Nightmare - If you have not played the original game, I recommend you to at least read the wiki to understand the story. It is very weird, and you will be more implied in the story if you already know the characters and why you are in this world.
The combat game play is exactly the same than in Alan Wake - though it's more action packed and a lot more weapons to choose from (nailguns, assault rifles etc) Infact the biggest problem is that survival is too easy because the game gives you too much ammo and resources. So basically survival element of the original game has been removed sadly as it was one of the best features!
The graphics and sound is okay though the voice acting and facial animations are little bit of step down from the main game
There is a challenge mode in which you have to survive each round by fighting of various enemies etc It's quite fun for an five minutes
The Biggest problem with this game is that there are only three chapters and once you have reached the end you have go through the three chapters again which only some slight changes and then you do it again! This makes the game extremely tedious and boring and because that the game has been lengthen artificially, I cannot really recommend it. Try the original and avoid this standalone expansion pack

Alan Wake American Nightmare is a sequel to the great Alan Wake game, but unfortunately doesn't live up to its name. Only for the hardcore AW fans who want to get everything out of the game, but even still this comes as a disappointment.
You wake up in some odd town surrounded by darkness, and you try to figure out what's going on. Alan's writings start to take life and a character named Mr Scratch is the main villain. You basically play the game three times, you go to 3 different locations, and after the last one and you reset back to the beginning and do everything again just slightly differently. The first time was pretty ok, it had that Alan Wake style, maybe a bit more arcade-y, but it still worked. Second time it just gets boring and third time you're starting to wonder why the F are you still doing this. You meet with 3 girls, one in each location and they're as boring as shallow as it gets. It just becomes a boring chore to do all the stuff 3 times, and definitely not worth it. If you really want to play this, wait for a sale.
