Alan Wake


Horror games have faced a crisis in recent years. The latest entries in two of the more storied franchises, Silent Hill: Homecoming and Resident Evil 5, pushed towards a more action-heavy style of play, at the cost of some of the atmospheric dread that...

Engaging, mysterious storyline. Unique episodic storytelling. Dark and mysterious atmosphere and environments. Tense and well-designed combat. Excellent sound effects, music, and voice acting

Somewhat awkward character modeling and lip sync

Alan Wake finds the sweet spot that many horror games miss: a slick combination of action sequences and genuine frights.

Alan Wake Review


Alan Wake is a psychological thriller that puts traditional third-person shooter mechanics on the back burner in favor of rich atmosphere and well-drawn storytelling.

Alan Wake may not appeal to everyone, it is the price of living in this proverbial “golden age” of gaming. I believe that there will definitely be a strong (or at least a cult) following for this survival horror title. I already count myself as part of...

Alan Wake


Alan Wake is an odd game, and will probably benefit from being reexamined in a few years. It's not so much a shooter as it is a five-part episode of "Twin Peaks." People who like it call it surreal and dreamlike, and people who don't call it...

It's probably worth checking out overall, just because there's nothing quite like it on store shelves at the moment. Alan Wake is ambitious, occasionally funny, and distinctly memorable; like I said before, I don't regret playing it at all. My abiding...

Alan Wake


This isn't to say, though, that it's impossible for the two genres to share balanced roles. However, any developer who would undertake such a project would find it a difficult negotiation that takes careful consideration and equal devotion to both...

Alan Wake- PC


One of the most powerful weapons a storyteller has in his arsenal is ambiguity. Think about the ending of Inception. The spinning totem in the final shot has inspired countless hours of discussion about its significance. Now comes the PC version of...

It takes awhile for Alan Wake to gain traction. Remedy frequently takes control away from the player to show a scripted sequence or a cinematic, and these interruptions can be a pain. But toward the end of the first chapter, as the combat intensified,...

Alan Wake Review


Killer storytelling and creative demon slaying make the haunting Alan Wake one for the books.

Strong writing and creative storytelling ; Creepy without being campy ; Dynamic combat is tight ; Improved graphics

Encounters grow repetitive by the end ; Some character animations look dated

Alan Wake: A Journey from Light to Darkness


Alan Wake has been waiting to come to the PC for a while, MIcrosoft finally let him leave the console world and now he has come home to the PC.

All in all I would HIGHLY recommend Alan Wake, if you are a fan of third person adventure games with a mix of horror than this game is a MUST PLAY AND A MUST BUY for you, considering that the price of it is simply irresistible compared to other titles...

Alan Wake review [PC]


I approach Alan Wake with fresh eyes, having missed out on Remedy Entertainment's horror title when it originally hit Xbox 360. Despite the game being almost two years old I've managed to avoid running into spoilers, so the mysteries contained within...

Alan Wake PC Review


We take a look at Alan Wake, the lost horror game nobody expected would ever hit PC.

Horror game Alan Wake was released nearly two years ago on Xbox 360. Though initially shown off on PC extensively prior to this, with plenty of hype surrounding its technical features, this version of the game was scrapped -- it seemed publisher...

Alan Wake Review


Let's play a game. It's a game where you have to forget you ever heard of Alan Wake and, for a bonus point, erase any memory of playing the Xbox 360 version. Done? Then we can begin in earnest.

Taking a bit of time to relax and enjoy the views from Hartman Clinic makes you wonder what might have been if there was more to the game than just shooting things.
