Alan Wake: The Signal

 

Lots of new questions, not a lot of answers. The psychological thriller Alan Wake gets its first batch of downloadable content in the form of “The Signal”. Picking up immediately...

Fast paced gameplay ; Amazing lighting and atmosphere ; New "word" element changes things up

Not much of a story continuation ; Leaves much to be desired ; Gameplay can get very frustrating when in close quarters

Alan Wake: The Signal - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

For all its contrivances, or perhaps because of the multitude of them, Alan Wake suffered from something of an information overload. The narrative was told via cut scenes, pseudo-cut scenes, in-game dialogue, in-game visual events, text messages,...

Alan Wake - The Signal

 

The Signal is the first downloadable addition to the story of Alan Wake. If you bought the game brand new, this doesn't cost you a thing, which is always a plus, and it certainly doesn't feel like a free add-on. The story continues exactly where the...

Alan Wake; The Signal DLC

 

Ahhh, the comfort of familiarity; knowing that what you've once enjoyed you are apt to do again. Each of us enjoys moments and memories that recreate specific emotional responses. Unfortunately, mankind is a fragile creature and much of what we recall...

Alan Wake: The Signal

 

"This is not a gun. It is a tool in a logical process of elimination." Thomas Zane speaks these words to Alan Wake, but he might as well be saying them to the person behind the controller, as this first of what is expected to be many DLC episodes...

The Signal features more "best" than "worst," and is absolutely a must-play for anyone who's completed the initial release, as it extends, clarifys, and complicates the game's narrative -- just what Wake fans are looking for.

Alan Wake - The Signal

 

Alan struggle to decipher between the real and unreal continue in this short, yet satisfying DLC.

I will warn you that the game takes on a harsher form as you will be constantly surrounded by enemies and objects that even more than ever require the use of light to destroy them. This results in some repeat level play and some frustrating moments....

Alan Wake: The Signal- Xbox 360

 

For the most part, [Alan's] still just stepping out of the way of roadworkers, woodcutters and other assorted Village People, while that mysterious diving suit guy still doesn't make his identity known. Oh well, at least the DLC's free if you bought...

Consumer review by:

Alan Wake: The Signal- Xbox 360

 

The DLC lasts around two hours, but with ten alarm clocks to find along the way, as well as cardboard standees of certain characters to find - you could probably extend that to three or four. The fact that it's free makes it well worth a play, just...

Consumer review by:

Alan Wake: The Signal- Xbox 360

 

Expect to get through [The Signal] in as much time as it took you to play through a chapter of the original game. You might get the impression that Remedy is stringing you along what feels like a never-ending nightmare, but in this case, it's a trip...

Consumer review by:

Alan Wake: The Signal- Xbox 360

 

The Signal is] one of [Alan Wake's] less satisfying episodes; aside from a couple of tweaks and some new plot details, all of the aspects which make it worth buying were present and correct in the main game.
