5.0 out of 5 stars Plays like an old school PC adventure... and that's a good thing!, December 4, 2012
This review is from: Alan Wake Collector's Bundle [Download] (Software Download)
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!
