Alan Wake

 

Alan Wake has gorgeous environments, and an inventive

Strong story and haunting conclusion, great voice-acting, gorgeous environments, superb soundtrack and nods to pop-culture fixtures

Character models look dated, game resets player progression at nearly every turn, leans heavily on combat, characters take on typical 'horror movie character' qualities

It isn't perfect, but Remedy's oft-delayed Alan Wake is an enjoyable and tense survival horror title that boasts a gripping plot, gorgeous environments, and an inventive "light versus dark" battle mechanic.

Alan Wake PC Review

 

Alan Wake finally makes his debut on the PC

It may be late to the party, but as the old saying goes; "better late than never". Alan Wake is far from a perfect game. It does a fantastic job of bridging the gap between games and film, with a story that is executed so perfectly, with plenty of...

Alan Wake

 

AJ returns to the review circuit to take a look at a game he and everyone else has been greatly anticipating: Alan Wake. The few remaining console exclusives really matter these days in terms of separating the consoles in the market, so Alan Wake has a...

Immersive environment and story. The odd scary moment. Awesome fog (yes, it is THAT awesome). A few twists and tricks to keep you on your toes

The game does its best to break immersion with product placement, voice overs and hints. Combat can get a little repetitive. The whole game feels like it could've been "more

Given the length of development, Alan Wake should have been the greatest game ever to live on the 360. As a console exclusive, you'd expect a game like this to have people lining up to buy consoles. Whilst it is a great game, it failed to live up to my...

Alan Wake 360 Review

 

In Alan Wake, darkness is your most fearsome enemy. The shadows are home to monsters who shun the light, growing more powerful as they slink through the jet-black unknown. You hear a noise behind you and spin around to examine your surroundings,...

Excellent Atmosphere and mood ; Interesting take on the Physiological thriller genre ; Part of a larger story

A bit too linear ; Not too scary after awhile ; Ending is a cliff-hanger

Alan Wake offers a tense and suspenseful storyline that is fused together with excellent lighting effects and unique battle mechanics. Very few titles manage to create a palpable sense of fright and tension but Alan Wake does so with a vengeance. A few...

Alan Wake review

 

Stephen King is undoubtedly a skilled writer, but not very many of his works have transformed into cinematic successes. Alan Wake makes a good attempt to do something about that scenario, bringing a horror story straight from the pages of a...

Alan Wake, meet the world. Everybody, this is Alan. He took a long time to get here, but he's finally arrived.

Remedy Games Alan Wake

 

Once you pick up the controller to play Alan Wake, there is no turning back. This suspense thriller game may be short, but offers something new to the gaming genre. Trailers and YouTube clips do not do this game justice – experiencing this game first...

Good scenery at atmosphere; Great mix of weapons; Great use of light; Great storytelling; It’s like watching a really good TV series

Facial expressions could have been better; Lip-sync issues; Not a long game if you do not spend time looking for extras and when it is played on normal

Alan Wake Review

 

When Remedy pitched Alan Wake as something of a television series handed to player's in episodic form, they weren't kidding. The game takes many cues from various films and TV series of the past; the kind that have reached plateaus of pure pop-culture...

Excellent lighting and atmosphere; Episodic approach is handled well and is definitely unique; Great soundtrack; Fully realised game-world

Not enough enemy variety; Shameless product placement; Story peaks way too early; Driving sequences are balls

Previously, on Alan Wake

After five years, can it be said that Alan Wake was worth the wait? Yes, it can, but Alan Wake is far from a perfect game. It does a fantastic job of bridging the gap between games and film, with a story that is executed so perfectly, with plenty of...

Alan Wake

 

With scores of 10 out 10, 95% and plus, not to mention praises from almost every corner of the globe, I thought that my version of Alan Wake was different than everyone else's. Was I missing something or was Alan Wake not my cup of tea. It was like a...

Alan Wake delivers an interesting and sturdy gaming experience, however for me, the whole experience seemed a little dated from the combat engine to certain gaming moments that we've seen it all before. The story may not be the most original in the...
