Summary: This game is phenomenal. It's not quite Survival Horror. Indeed, it was marketed as a Thriller and along those lines it satisfies. I've played it seven times now, mostly for the combat and atmosphere but I also lose myself in the story pretty easily. So let me elaborate a bit on one of MY top ten games of all time: Alan Wake. STORY Much better than I expected. I can't think of a survival horror game in which I actually cared what happened to the characters.
Summary: I was looking for more ways to use my Wii so thought I would give Yoga a try...Not worth it. This was not a good fit for me because it was choppy (from move to move), didn't give enough description as to the next movement so that you had to try to see the screen at all times (hard to do a downward dog & watch the screen). There are much better Yoga videos out there.
Summary: This is a horrible program. The settings are dark and the instructors are tiny. You have to strain and watch as they do not announce anything. Makes a person wonder why Wii allowed this on the market. Now I understand why Wii will be joining all the has been in the gaming industry. The dealer I purchased this from was great and probably thrilled to get out of their inventory.

Summary: A third-person horror game, "Alan Wake" delivers an interesting narrative alongside a reasonably standard set of game mechanics. The game's protagonist is the eponymous Alan Wake, a horror writer on vacation in the small town of Bright Falls, Washington. Shortly after arriving, the unnatural - or supernatural - nature of the town becomes more and more evident as Wake discovers that the contents of his book and his writings are coming true.
An excellent, atmospheric game, let down by a few problems.

Summary: Alan Wake is a successful novelist suffering from writer's block. He and his wife, Alice, take a holiday to Bright Falls, Washington, and rent a cabin on an island in the middle of a volcanic lake. When Alice 'surprises' Alan with a typewriter, hoping he'll feel inspired to start writing again, Alan becomes angry and storms out. He hears his wife screaming, only to find the cabin and the island have disappeared.
Summary: The only complaint my wife has about this game is the lack of instruction. Not explanation of the positions cause you can get it in the training mode, but during the routines there is no talking. So she is having to look at the screen to see when the person changes and what position to go to.
Summary: Between doing Yoga poses in Wii Fit and learning about the chakras and wanting to learn to do the associated Yoga poses, I purchased this game. I thought I was getting a good deal when I got it for less than $5. Big mistake - the "story mode" was long and laborious, you spent more time watching your "guide" walk around the temple than you did even learning about Yoga philosophy, and then when you actually did get to the poses, there was no responsiveness or feedback to...
Summary: I was excited to have finally received yoga for Wii. I have to say I am so very disappointed. The graphics is very poorly done with insufficient instructions; there are no custom workouts to follow except for a few targeting specific ares. The whole thing is very confusing. I wish I read the reviews before I bought it. I would not have wanted this software for free. I am VERY VERY disappointed. I wasted my money and time on reviewing this, whatever it is.
