Alan Wake: The Writer Review


Alan Wake keeps getting better! And the most recent DLC episode, The Writer, proves this. But with the current arguments surrounding DLC in the gaming community, is this two hour play through really worth the purchase?

The dream world also allows for some cool gameplay elements making this DLC not just another episode. Often in Wake's dream episodes—see the last episode of the main game for reference—there are some fuzzy words floating in mid-air that Wake has to...

Alan Wake The Writer Review:


Alan Wake The Writer Review Xbox 360. Following on from The Signal, the second downloadable episode of the Alan Wake story wraps up some loose ends and unleashes what can only be described as a living roller coaster ride through the fantastical...

The Writer, is an interesting addition to the game and one that fans will no doubt lap up, however, if you're not overly bothered then waiting out for a price reduction might be more worthwhile. As it stands, other than merely providing some extra...

Alan Wake: The Writer Review


The Writer focuses on the type of psychological subject matter that Alan Wake has been best with since its initial release, making it one of its better, more interesting episodes, despite its brevity.

Alan Wake; The Writer DLC


There are many schools of thought concerning the development of fiction. The most common is the one we most readily associate with; introduction, climax, conclusion. Regardless of the medium, these 3 'acts' have become the tried and true method of...

Review: Alan Wake: The Writer DLC


Alan Wake is easily one of the best games to come out this year. It's a fantastic third-person action thriller that has always managed to keep me on the edge of my seat, and has always kept me coming back for more. I'm not sure if it's because they...

Alan Wake: The Writer Review for the XBOX360


Wake up and smell the ashes.

Extremely engaging; Smart reuse of environments from the original; Great self-referential dialogue

Alan Wake: The Writer


The Writer is the last DLC for Alan Wake. I don't want to give too much away because it's about an hour-long expansion so there is not much wiggle room. In The Writer you are put into crazy environments created by Alan Wakes mind. These environments...

Alan Wake: The Writer


I went into this second (and presumably final) episode of Alan Wake both excited and worried. Although I had a great time with the game when it first came out, I would be hard pressed to tell you anything about the story. I remembered there being a...

Alan Wake's second (and presumably final) episode is going to mess with your head! With its creative level designs and moody atmosphere, this episode reminds me why I enjoyed the original game in the first place. Unfortunately it's short on answers and...

Alan Wake - The Writer


Does Alan's nightmare end with this final DLC for Alan Wake, or is it all just beginning?

At 560 points or 7 dollars, the only gamers who may feel cheated from this deal are the gamers who are not genuine fans of the game. For those of us who wish this story wouldn't end, we feel that more chapters are a bargain at less than 10 dollars. I...

Alan Wake: The Writer


Well paced, peppered with memorable set pieces, some narrative bombshells and just the right amount of combat to stitch everything together.

Several memorable moments ; Just the right amount of combat

You'll need to concentrate to follow the plot ; Over in less than two hours

I'd like to describe the fight preceding the last cutscene, but for fear of spoilers I'll simply say this: the last moments of gameplay are fantastic; a whole lot better than fighting inanimate objects in The Signal (this, incidentally, is kept to a...
