Raise your hand if you've heard this one before. A writer suffering from writer's block heads over to idyllic yet creepy town with beautiful wife to refill his creative juices. His wife su

Until last night, you had never fired a gun before, but priorities tend to change when you're being hunted by unholy creatures of the night. In Alan Wake, darkness is your most fearsome enemy. The shadows are home to monsters who shun the light,...

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...

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,...

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...

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...
