Great version of PC Alan Wake,
This review is from: Alan Wake (CD-ROM)
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!

The game requires online activation with Steam so you will need internet connection.
If you don't want to use Steam, the GOG.com version is DRM-free and does not require online activation ... But you'd still need internet connection to download it beforehand.
