- Light as a combat element: As Wake journeys deeper into the mystery of Bright Falls, the shadows close in around him. When darkness descends, light becomes his only ally as he fights his way to daybreak. This poses a severe problem for Alan Wake since his enemies seemingly gain strength from the shadows, and before long, light itself becomes his greatest ally. Players must skillfully combine their use of light with more conventional weapons to stand a chance.
- Realistic, interactive environment: Set in the town of Bright Falls, the hyper-detailed environments of the Pacific Northwest play an important role, as even the change in daylight and weather will profoundly affect the characters and enemies in Alan Wake. The game’s advanced rendering engine provides amazingly realistic environments that bring this world to detailed life–from the lush forest of evergreen trees to the quaint small-town buildings and streets. The world of Alan Wake is alive and real.
- Episodic narrative: The mission-based structure of Alan Wake creates an episodic narrative similar to a deeply structured dramatic television series, such as LOST, Twin Peaks and X-Files. As the episodes progress, gameplay evolves to introduce new elements and characters, escalating the level of threat and action in the game.

Now to the game. I'm not going to reveal any spoilers but rather comment on the gameplay and mechanics. First, the two things that bothered me, but did not take away from the experience and pull me out of the immersion. There is some screen tearing, although it's not much it is noticeable. And the other thing is the mouth to voice sync. A character will be talking to you and sometimes the mouth expressions do not match up to what is being said. It doesn't happen too often, but it makes you wonder why a game in development for so long would have this problem.
Now the good. The graphics are amazing. The developers make the best use of motion blur and focus that I have seen in a game as of this date on a console. The use of dark and light is almost perfect and the atmosphere is even enhanced by this fact. The controls are tight and not complex. It might take you a few minutes to get used to the flashlight and gun combo but you will learn quick. My problem was that I thought I would only hit the target if the flashlight was aimed at the bad guy, but it seems that you will still hit the enemy even without the flashlight on them.Read more ›
The appeal for me is the immersive aspect of this incredible game Remedy created: the environments, the characters, the storyline, and the musical elements come together and allow one to just get lost in the game. As I mentioned, I've played for a while on all three levels and I have yet to get tired of the game. There are no side quests, just the main storyline, but there are interactive elements in the world (locating the chests, thermos, and book pages, knocking down the pyramids of cans, reading the signs, and listening to the radios) and good luck finding them all. There are also achievements for performing certain tasks or levels on time or under a particular limitation. Cutaway shots (I don't know the lingo) after segments of gameplay to allow character action/dialog, and sometimes the game takes over Alan (e.g., when Alan gets a phone call), and he'll slow down to a walk.
The graphics are crisp and clear, from close-in action to the sweeping panoramas, and there's very little blur during the action. This is a psychological thriller, so some of the scenes are quite dark, but you won't get lost unless your TV faces picture windows without shades (If it does, well, how in the hell do you see anything anyway?).Read more ›
Regardless, Alan Wake is something that everyone should experience at least once, so I'd highly recommend giving it a try.
