I waited forever to buy this game because I wanted to buy the version that had the game on a disc, but the game isn't on the disc. Immediately I find that in order to install it I have to accept Steam's user agreement, download Steam's software, then download the game and use it through them! Why in the world would the publishers even make a disc version? Kiiinda defeats the idea of buying a physical copy, you know? I guess this affords me the opportunity to re-sell it, but given the fact that prices for PC games plummet quickly anyway, this seems a moot benefit.

I rarely buy PC games, and this will probably be the last time I do. I like to feel like I actually own the product I buy, and therefore do not like using Steam because it feels like Steam owns it and I am merely borrowing it whenever I can log onto their site and am then allowed to play the game.

I know my stance is old school and is disappearing, but I just hate being the victim of a bait-and-switch. I hope this helps someone else that feels the same and wanted to buy this.

I like to own physical boxes for my games, so I was thrilled to find out that a retail boxed version of Alan Wake was in the works. I like Steam, but it's just not the same as owning a box and disc.

Besides that, I found this version to be ideal in terms of features. It is somewhere between the standard version and paying an extra $10 for collector's edition, yet it comes with all the great stuff I'd have wanted from the more expensive version. It contains the soundtrack (good), a PDF version of the Alan Wake files (would have preferred a printed version), and audio commentary that plays while you're playing the game (awesome!). I really enjoyed the audio commentary, and hope that it becomes a trend.

So if you noticed, I didn't say much about the actual game itself. Well it has been out for 2 years now on xbox, and has good reviews so look elsewhere for an actual review of the game. This was more for people who held out on buying the PC download version because they wanted a box. Well, Good News, it's a great version!

This retail boxed disc version of Alan Wake requires you to install steam and set up a steam account before it will install on your computer. Don't know if it matters to anyone but it did to me and there was no way to get the information from the box before buying. The game looks really great and has controller support which is why I give it four stars (really don't like the steam thing though).

I don't want to go deep into details but one thing i will tell you is if you are psychological thriller games fan then you should definitely go for this one! Awesome graphics, good storyline kinda short though. I recommend this game.

Great game. One of the first in a while where moving the character around in 3rd person view (with a keyboard and mouse no less) works really well. I highly recommend it. I am an avid non-military type of 1st person shooter/adventure person, so this is long overdue. Not that I don't have a collection military type shooters. I am using a newly home built PC made especially for intense graphical gaming, math simulation, CAD drawing, C++ programming, etc. This game is graphically intense and you need a good machine to work it without turning down the graphics features. I don't have a console so I am not sure how well it works on those. The game claims it is DX10 for Windows 7, but I don't see where it is much better then DX9 games. It is on a par with games like the Half-Life 2 series as far as I am concerned. What is really great about it is the lush forests the game is set in. Again, you need a good machine to fully realize the beauty of the game. As usual you get a lot of enemies and not enough ammo. But that is just me. You need to learn to shoot and scoot properly to get through it. Definitely a game to acquire.

Overall, this game has a fascinating storyline, probably one of the best I have seen in years. In my opinion, game companies have become very lazy and complacent, but this game is neither. Incredibly fun to play and watch. (like a tv show)
The reason I gave it four stars instead of five is for one very simple reason. The gameplay itself can be rather difficult at times. There are times when I run out of flashlight battaries or bullets, and have no way to fend off the darkness. I find supplies eventually, but maybe after dying like 3 times. Which is another thing. You die in like 3 hits. Which isn't really a bad thing, but became quite annoying.
I reccomend this game if you are one who is into more in depth storylines and not actual gameplay.

This game is phenomenal. It's not quite Survival Horror. Indeed, it was marketed as a Thriller and along those lines it satisfies. I've played it seven times now, mostly for the combat and atmosphere but I also lose myself in the story pretty easily. So let me elaborate a bit on one of MY top ten games of all time: Alan Wake.

STORY
Much better than I expected. I can't think of a survival horror game in which I actually cared what happened to the characters. To me, I just focused on the gameplay and staying alive, going through the motions. But Alan Wake is a very story-centered game. Whether it's in cut scenes, in the narration, in the manuscripts, or wherever, you remain in tune with the narrative and trying to figure everything out. Alan Wake is a famous author of crime fiction who's been suffering with a bad case of writer's block. He and his wife take a trip to a small town in the Pacific Northwest presumably to just leave their problems all behind them. But then Alan's wife goes missing, and the cold eerie nights of this small town present to Alan a problem far bigger than his writer's block!

I won't spoil anything for you, but the plot will keep you guessing right up to (and in fact BEYOND) the end, which of course is what you would expect from horror/thriller. Just know that the plot gets deep, and it never lets go of you!

PRESENTATION
Bar none! The game goes for a sort of TV series feel and it's easy to see. Each level is not called a level but an "Episode". Events are narrated as you play, in between action sequences. The camera lets you move it so you can see behind Alan as he's running forward, stuff like that. And I like how in the main menu you can access tons of content you've unlocked.
