About this product
- Product InformationFinland's Remedy Entertainment delivers this "psychological thriller" action-adventure, which follows a popular horror novelist through his darkest nightmares. Mourning a vanished lover and beset by insomnia, Alan Wake has lost his best source of creative inspiration: his dreams. He retreats to the little Pacific Northwest town of Bright Falls, where the horrors he once saw in his sleep seem to become real. Mission by mission, the player guides the character to explore these eerie stories as they come alive in the isolated coastal village.<br><br>Alan Wake shares more with its predecessors than a vague pun in the title character's name. As in the studio's Max Payne, the hero's nightmares yield shadowy monsters to battle and surreal mysteries to unravel, mostly from an action-oriented, third-person perspective. The missions in Alan Wake weave continuously through the horror writer's visions as well as through the "real" world, where the lonely village of Bright Falls offers little solace. And although he gains access to a revolver, hunting rifle, and increasingly deadly shotguns, Alan Wake's most useful weapon may be his flashlight, as darkness seems to be the source of all his nightmarish troubles.<br><br>The PC version of Alan Wake includes the Xbox 360's downloadable content add-ons, "The Signal" and "The Writer."

Alan Wake is one of my favorite titles of all time. The story and game play is absolutely wonderful and they work together very well. You'll find yourself wondering what happens next as you uncover the dark and twisted truth of Bright Falls. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys horror, action, and a great story.

Good Video, Poor game
NOTE: There is no PC version of Alan Wake, only the XBox 360 While the graphics and videos were fun to see, the gameplay itself is repetitive and boring. It fails as a horror game because the enemies are just featureless shadows and their attack patterns are more annoying then challenging. There is no exploration, no inventory, little to no character development, and a storyline that is not even fully fleshed out. I cannot shake the feeling that the primary reason Alan Wake does not even have a conclusive ending is not due to lack of quality writing and piece-meal game development. The game came across as being an afterthought project, put together using parts of the original, sandbox-style version of Alan Wake. In summary this game is a shooter where you must take away the enemies' shadow-shields first with a focused beam of light before you can shoot them. Read full review

Excellent game for the 360 and PC. Good story.
Although I have not played the PC version (Which DOES exist..) the Xbox 360 version is just fine. It has a pretty good story, and I had no problem fighting enemies. It is true that the game can get a little repetitive, but I still enjoyed it all the way through. The setting of the game (Washington USA) is a nice change from other games that use Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong and whatnot. All in all, I love this game.
