Great Gaming Experiance
I picked up Alan Wake becuase I heard that it was a decent RPG with a compelling story. I had no idea how much fun and enjoyable this game would be. I am addicted to online shooters and play them constantly, but this game was so great that COD and Gears temporarilly lost appeal. Great story, tempo, characters, etc. This game competes with the Fable series in my opinion and is most likely one of, if not the best platform RPG for the 360. I know it doesnt look like much, but for the used price it is absolutly worth a BUY. DONT THINK, GET THIS GAME!!! You will not be dissapointed.
NEEDS a sequel
I wasn't much into this when I first started playing it. It's a different kind of game. Not the usual mystery/suspense game. But once I played a bit further I was hooked. The atmospheres are amazing, as it takes place in the Pacific Northwest. The graphics of views from cliffs overlooking lakes, down mountainous roads, through trees are all great. The story also keeps one's attention. The game left me wanting more and a sequel is definitely needed. Although, as of a few weeks ago in my searches there is no news of one yet, and the game has been out for a few years. I'd be extremely surprised and disappointed if this is it. This game is highly recommended!
Edge of your seat.
From the very beginning till the very end, the story of Alan Wake keeps you sitting on the edge wondering what will happen next. Right when one story appears to be real, darkness comes and a new story is told. The game closely resembles Survival Horror games and is a masterpiece in dialog and story telling. I highly recommend this product.
Roller Coaster Ride!
I may have thought that this game was total and utter wreck the first time i played it, but I eventually liked how scary and heartracing it got to. It was annoying at one point cause it wasn't helping on where to go, but as soon it gets coasting, it gets really good. As said in my review summary its like a roller coaster. Its slow in the beginning but after you get past that first drop its a great ride the rest of the way! (Space Mountain and Rock N Roller Coaster can relate to that). Trust me, I'm not scared of anything, but this game will get you scared for the time being of you playing the game. I highly recommend it.
I Now Carry a Flashlight
Alan Wake is one of those few games that has everything. The graphics look great, the game play isn't stale or frustrating, and the story is incredible. It's one of those games that sucks you and refuses to let go.
I would like to warn you though, if you decide to buy the second one, American Nightmare, the story won't make sense. Even though the two games are barely linked, you still need to play the original AND the two DLCs to understand the conflict in American Nightmare. I played the demo for it before I bought the two games, and I know realize that I need the two DLCs to figure out where Mr. Scratch comes into the story (you'll figure out what I'm talking about if you play the demo and/or the game).
Like a movie!
This game is a masterpiece. The story is AWESOME!! Graphics are just perfect, sound is good, and gameplay is exciting!! PLAY THIS GAME
Very good story
This game is a very good deal especialy at twenty dollars. And for that twenty dollars you'll get a amazingly griping story and a decent amount of play time. The graphics for the most part are okay the lip syncing isn't very good at all, and the combat flows okay even if there are a few small difficulty sipkes here and there. And the page collectibles can take away from the tension by spoiling the story. But the collectibles will make you wan't to go back and play agin on the higher difficulty settings to get all of them. All in all I had a good time and there are by far worse games to spend your money on.
Not Scary While Its Awesome
I like this game. I always run out of ammo and yet have not made it to the nearest gas station. I don't want to spoil stuff, but this game is great for everyone who doesn't like freaky horrors.
should be a novel

CAN YOU DIG IIIIIIIT ?
I Already Wrote A Review, But...
Alan Wake. Alan Wake is my favorite game of all time. The atmosphere, the story, the graphics, the gameplay! I believe, that this game is close to perfection. The game has such an incredible story, that it is impossible to summarize in just a few sentences. Also, Remedy also nailed the atmosphere. It's dark, twisted, no one can be trusted. Characters in this game also move this game along. I was engaged in Alan's story from beginning to end. The game world feels as if it is real and on the map, and it really captures the dark and eerie tone. The graphics are nothing short of incredible. Fog surrounds you, trees sway in the fast winds, diners and gas station lights can be seen in the distance, and light posts at the top of the hills make you thrive for victory. In the game, you fight a lot of shadow figures. They attack you with various melee items. So you better stock up on batteries and bullets because it's going to be a long night. The game might not have the most compelling gameplay, but by the end of a battle, you feel accomplished. The game is difficult, but not on the level of Max Payne 3, or Splinter Cell. Alan Wake has terrific gameplay and satisfying levels. However, you might not love the ending. I on the other hand, loved it. Though it is very incomplete and complex, I understood it and found it to be a thrilling conclusion. As you can tell, I adored this game. Very little survival horror titles can deliver on the high notes of this incredible game. This game is very overlooked but it deserves much more love. Alan Wake is the reason why I play video games.
