Product Description

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, Washington pushing Wake to the brink of sanity in his fight to unravel the mystery and save the woman he loves. With the body of an action game and the mind of a psychological thriller, Alan Wake is a pulse-pounding thrill ride.

Alan Wake, developed by Remedy Entertainment for the Xbox 360, is psychological action thriller that incorporates the elements of a TV show with the interactivity of a video game for a uniquely immersive experience. A suspenseful story told in successive episodes, this release will treat players to top-notch graphics that give the game a stunning cinematic look.

A Nightmare Turns to Life
Alan Wake is a bestselling horror novelist who moved to the small town of Bright Falls, Washington after suffering from insomnia and depression. Wake is able to sleep again, but after he meets a mysterious woman, he begins to have terrible nightmares. As he puts these nightmares on paper for a new book, he soon notices that all the things that happen in his book are coming true right before his eyes.

Using cinematic effects and technology such as real-time lighting, shadows and reflections, you'll be treated to a game that is oozing with atmosphere and able to invoke an emotional response from the player. The realistic environment features real-time weather and light changes that effect the game play for a remarkably immersive experience.

Explore an Entire Town
The town of Bright Falls is 100 square kilometers, and players will be able to roam through this incredibly detailed area any way they like, roaming the town or wandering out to the lakes, forest, satellite towns, and more. The game gives the player goals, but how he chooses to go about completing them is up to him. Clues are scattered throughout the town, and solving mysteries will require players to pay close attention to the little details.

Intense Combat
In addition to solving puzzles and exploration, the game also pushes players into serious action and combat; when night comes, creatures will take their best shots at Alan, and you'll have to be quick with strategy as well as weapons to beat them back.

Alan Wake presents an unusual and new gaming experience that features a riveting, multi-layered story while giving the player the ability to freely roam a giant environment. It supports Dolby Digital sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game for the older folks December 26, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is more brain usage than shoot them up. I enjoyed playing this game and I'm 59. I don't enjoy the blow up everything games. This game tells a story and is alot more then just running around shooting everything. As far as I'm concerned it's one of the best video games I ever played.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Horror Fan is Satisfied. July 16, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When approaching Alan Wake I wasn't really sure what to expect. I've always been a huge survival horror fan. I've been fighting off hordes of the undead since the first Resident Evil on PS1 (actually since "Zombies ate my Neighbors" on SNES). I didn't know too much about Alan Wake but I decided to give it a shot anyways. Boy was I suprised! This game turned out to be a jewel. Alan Wake has so much atmosphere you could bottle it up and sell it out of a soda machine. Some games don't get the pacing right, with too much of this or too much of that. Alan Wake seems to have pacing perfected (action, exploration, puzzles). If you're a horror game fan you owe it to yourself to pick this game up. This game has renewed my love for the XBOX 360. I just hope they don't take too long to make a full sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game Review - Alan Wake May 18, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It seems that David Lynch missed the boat somewhere. With the current rush of thriller style horror games hitting the market, he could have produced a game of epic proportions. In his absence, however, Remedy Entertainment has stepped up to the plate. If Deadly Premonition managed to capture the quirky characters and almost farcical style of Twin Peaks, Alan Wake has nailed the foreboding, fear-filled side of the series.

Author Alan Wake is trapped in a story that he doesn't remember writing and his wife's life is at stake. Armed with his trusty flashlight and an assortment of weapons, he must stave off the forces of darkness lurking throughout the town of Bright Falls while uncovering the clues to his own memory loss, his mysterious, new novel Departure and the location of his abducted spouse. And it all plays out as cinematically as any game has ever managed to do.

The Story

Penned by the deft hand of Sam Lake, there are definite echoes of Max Payne within this game--primarily the ongoing introspection and voice-over that narrates the story as it unfolds before the gamer. Otherwise, Alan Wake is a completely unique experience. Twists and turns in the plot manage to keep the story within grasp while introducing new and interesting tidbits throughout the game.

Game levels are scripted as 'episodes'--much as they were in Deadly Premonition--beginning with flashbacks of what has happened previously in the story/game. It gives the game a television-like vibe that brings to mind series like Lost and the X-Files--and is spoofed by the game itself with glimpses of a popular program (called Night Springs) that resembles the Twilight Zone on in-game televisions.

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome game December 15, 2010
By Naks
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game took me by surprise as one of the best stories in a video game I have ever seen. I think I liked it so much because of the fact that it was so similar to David Lynch's pseudo-soap opera/mystery thriller Twin Peaks. But the whole game was awesome and it was just like reading a good book which is what I think the aim was supposed to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best story lines on the 360. January 6, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I played this game like 5 months ago so I have to think back but this is honestly one of the best single player games the Xbox 360 has to offer. It plays in a tv show kind of style which is really cool. I typically have a short attention span when it comes to video games but I played the game for probably 10 hours straight when I got it. Kind of scary game but it's pretty cool. I haven't ran into many games that kept my interest like this one. Really fun and enjoyable, I highly recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars First half was great, but it gets a bit repetitive October 27, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The first episode was just great. It was a truly scary game, and I found myself getting apprehensive every time the mist started coming around in the dark because I knew the shadow people were coming for me. The music was great and a well done addition to set the mood. It really made you feel immersed in the story.

Unfortunately, the story gets really deep and twisted, and kind of distracts from the fun. It also gets a bit repetitive and loses all its fear inducing factor. The second half basically becomes a "point light, shoot dark people, look for more ammo" kind of game, and isn't nearly as fun any more.

I finished the game just hoping it would get better but it didn't really, and the ending was a bit of a disappointment too.

3.0 out of 5 stars A few things to consider... May 24, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Alan Wake is proof that video game conventions and movie conventions cannot completely exist on the same plane, at least in terms of the current gen technology. As hard as Alan Wake tries to be "more" than just a game in both it's story and structure, it ends up backfiring on several occasions ultimately ruining the experience. Behind the David Lynch-esque facade of every day people and places, Alan Wake succeeds in telling a story structured like a dream, but in doing so it falters in the most important aspect, the game play. It's obvious from the outset that Alan Wake is a nice looking game, at least in terms of scenery. Trees blow in the wind, bushes sway as Alan brushes by them, and the scenic vistas are near breathtaking. The sound is great as well, rivaling Dead Space in creating a truly horrific and foreboding atmosphere. However, the game is so simply designed, and levels are so boringly directed that all the beauty in Bright Falls can't save the game play. Alan Wake is intense a lot of the time, but the intensity is more so due to the limits placed on your character, than by the creation of expert developers. Here are a few things to consider before you pay full price for this game that promises a lot, but ends up backing out in the end.

For me this was one of the games biggest weak points. It seems that Alan Wake isn't sure what it wants to be. It appears on the outset to be a survival horror game where ammo is scarce, and combat isn't the focal point. However, it's evident that after the first couple of episodes that Alan Wake is just a glorified action game with survival horror elements. The game involves a lot of twitch reaction along with precise shooting and aiming.
