From the Manufacturer

FINALLY ON PC

The critically acclaimed and BAFTA nominated, TIME magazine Game of the Year Alan Wake, finally comes to PC! From Remedy, the creators of Max Payne arrives a heart pounding Psychological Action Thriller, further refined and enhanced for the PC. The game comes with two special episodes, The Signal and The Writer.

About the Game:

When the wife of the best-selling writer Alan Wake disappears on their vacation, his search turns up pages from a thriller he doesn’t even remember writing. A Dark Presence stalks the small town of Bright Falls, pushing Wake to the brink of sanity in his fight to unravel the mystery and save his love.

Presented in the style of a TV series, Alan Wake features the trademark Remedy storytelling and pulse-pounding action sequences. As players dive deeper and deeper into the mystery, they’ll face overwhelming odds, plot twists, and cliffhangers. It’s only by mastering the Fight With Light combat mechanic that they can stay one step ahead of the darkness that spreads across Bright Falls.

With the body of an action game and the mind of a psychological thriller, Alan Wake’s intense atmosphere, deep and multilayered story, and exceptionally tense combat sequences provide players with an entertaining and original gaming experience.

ENHANCED FOR THE PC

  • Includes Alan Wake Special Episodes “The Signal” and “The Writer”.
  • Experience Alan Wake’s Pacific Northwest in higher resolutions and higher fidelity than the Xbox360 version.
  • Fully configurable mouse and keyboard support, or if you prefer to play with the Microsoft gamepad connected to your PC, you can do that too!
  • Lots of customizable graphics settings and support for 4:3, 16:9 and 16:10 aspect ratios!
  • Multithreaded engine that takes advantage of quad core CPUs.
  • Additional features our fans have sought after such as field of view adjustment as well as “hide HUD”.
  • Works with AMD Eyefinity 3D 3-screen mode.
  • Works with NVIDIA NVISION2 Stereoscopic 3D.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive, Great gameplay March 13, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Collector's Bundle|Verified Purchase
I went in expecting something similar to a silent hill resident evil clone/mix; what i got however was an excellent game that perfectly melds the craft of writing and video games for something that (to me at least) is a wholly new and unique experience; moreover being a somewhat avid reader I caught tons of allusions to other works (notably Stephen King, and H.P Lovecraft). I can easily say that this is amongst my top 5 favorite games of all time. The graphics are immaculate (though i must say the animation leaves a little to be desired (everyone talks as if they got a little excited with the Botox injections)) but ignoring that small fault the game is In my opinion, perfect.
If you like horror novels, believe me when i say this game is not something you'll regret spending money on.
but be warned, this is not similar to most games, in the sense that most of the story is left up to the player to discover, and if you're not ready to spend time deciphering the clues, then the game (the ending in particular) will only serve to annoy you.
in short 10/10 easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remedy's finest May 25, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Collector's Bundle
A few years back Microsoft had the great idea to try and buy up companies and then make their games Xbox exclusive.
Alan Wake was one of the games caught up in this, it did not sell well on Xbox despite critical acclaim and was often criticized for crude product and ad placement.

So here we are 2012 and Alan wake finally arrives on it's intended platform and even with the product placement, Remedy's great story telling and solid game-play mechanics shine though.

Alan Wake, a tormented writer in the feeling the effects of intense writers block goes on what he believes is a vacation where he hopes to escape the personal demons that plague him only to have his wife confront him with a quiet room and a type writer where she hopes he can rekindle his talent. From that moment on all hell breaks loose as the walls between reality and fantasy go from gray to smudge. With gun and flashlight Alan Wake takes on his personal and professional demons that have been brought to life by a malevolent force at the bottom of Cauldron Lake. The story is told in an interesting "episodic" style with lots of nods to Max Payne 1&2 (Remedy's previous successful titles) though-out.

Game play consists of Alan using a flashlight or other source of light to dispel the shadows around foes then to crack them open with bullets. This allows for intense action that requires you to think about how move on the fly because Alan since he doesn't have unlimited stamina to run and dodge.

I would actually give the game 4 & 1/2 if I could only because of the controls take some tweaking (like dropping the mouse sensitivity well below half) and the dodge mechanic takes a while to really learn the nuances.

After playing it I was compelled to immediately pick up the follow up "American Nightmare" and I recommend you do too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alan Wake is HIGHLY Underrated July 30, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Collector's Bundle|Verified Purchase
I have never seen very much in the way of reviews on this game, so I felt that I was taking a bit of a risk when I bought it, even though I got it at a reaaaally great sale price. I have to say... Even if I had not gotten this on sale, I would have been completely satisfied. It is an amazing game with an amazing story, and it has a fan-FREAKING-tastic soundtrack to boot. Some might say it's short, but it's no shorter than a lot of games are these days. Do I wish it lasted a little longer? Yes. But did I literally play it from the minute I woke up to the time I went to sleep? Sadly, yes... Very few games have kept me going like that, and the unique gameplay of Alan Wake is now among those sad days where I'm not even sure if I stepped outside.

In many ways, Alan Wake reminds me of the old "point and click" adventure games I played on the computer as a kid. You are propelled through the game by a strong narrative, dialogue, characters, and pacing. Of course, though the game takes cues from the old school adventure games (as well as some TV shows, like "Twin Peaks"), it wisely adopts modern control schemes, playing in the typical third person, over the shoulder style that has become very popular over the past two console generations. It is a very linear experience, but that's just the way I like my games- focused with the emphasis being on pacing, fun, and story. This game truly is the "psychological suspense thriller" that it claims to be!

3.0 out of 5 stars An otherwise good game marred by poor design... August 28, 2014
By Mike
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Collector's Bundle|Verified Purchase
The biggest flaw with this game is the odd camera angle. It's as if the player's view is slightly off center. In other words, you look to the side of where you want to go when walking. I wonder why Remedy chose this?

Other than that, the game is mediocre at best. There is a genuine sense of uneasiness at times, but it gets ruined by some of the odd choices the developers made. For example: The "taken" tell you random facts. I mean, it's not scary. It just ruins the moment by being, well... dorky.

The combat in the game could be better also. You *must* dodge for most of the game. If you want to run in a shoot everything, you will be disappointed. This game is not geared up for that. You're better off trying to outrun enemies. Even if you have the reflexes to dodge and enough batteries for your flashlight, you're guaranteed to run out of ammo frequently. You've got to be very stingy with your use of ammo in this game.

Another problem is that Alan cannot run and aim/shoot at the same time. You want to shoot? They you've got to walk or stand still. No other option. It's just another weird design decision Remedy made. I was left shaking my head at this one. It's humanly possible to run and shoot at the same time, so why can Alan Wake not do it? This leads to much frustration during combat.

I wouldn't buy the game unless it was to be had for less than $10.
