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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I didn't bother getting the game until this year, and I am shocked both by how cheap it is now and how amazingly good it is.

Alan Wake is a very story-driven game that is told in a multi-episode format. This gave me the feeling of being the star of an action/horror genre television show, and though horror/3rd person shooters aren't usually my cup of tea, I found myself having fun more often than not, often whilst soiling my pants.

I could go on all day about the 5 star voice-acting/storyline, but instead, I'll focus a bit on the gameplay.

A 3rd person shooter doesn't sound particularly fun to a traditional FPS-er like me, but it's surprisingly well done. There is a bit of auto-locking that goes on when you draw your weapon, but it's not to the point where the gamemakers are killing the enemies for you. Without some careful forethought and strategy, it's very easy to get yourself overwhelmed and killed by the bad guys. It's also very easy to run out of ammo if you're a spray-and-pray kind of shooter, so you'll have to quickly learn how to discipline yourself, or else risk leaving yourself completely helpless.

This leads me to the game's biggest flaw, in my opinion, which is its autosave function. Should you make the mistake of running out of ammo and trying to move on through the area to find some more, the game will automatically save over your last file. This is bad because if there is no ammo ahead of you, there's no way to roll back your file and get back to your pre-ammo-less point. Essentially, you'll be screwed and have to start over. This only happened to me once when I made the innocent mistake of letting my boyfriend play for me (hi sweetie!), and he ended up making do without only 3 shots left for 5 enemies, but you may not be as lucky.
