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: I agree with the other reviews. With great excitement I waited for this product to be released, and within ten minutes it was clear I would never again be using the disc. Terrible user interface. Poor animation. Very frustrating experience. A total waste of money! Tomorrow morning I'll happily be using my old yoga routine in Wii Fit Plus.
Summary: I waited for this to come out and asked for it for Christmas from my boyfriend. I was expecting a very cool, interactive yoga flow type game, where you had routines to select and actually got a real workout. Unfortunately this is not the case. The audio is poor (alot of static), and unless you have eyes in the back of your head, have no idea when the pose ends until the instructor says "bye".
Summary: This game is so bad in so many ways. I'll start by saying that I was hoping to have a yoga game that flowed evenly. I asked for this as a gift, hoping for a more involved yoga workout routine that I could do several times a week. You can't concentrate or relax doing yoga while having to constantly push the "A" button. It takes so long to load the game between poses, you lose interest after awhile. The various "routines" are not challenging enough.
Summary: Like the others, I was so excited when I saw this game. I waited for it to be released and jumped to get it. Boy am I sorry. The graphic stink, the sound is terrible and the game is not well though out. If you are new to Yoga poses how are you suppose to be watching the TV (which for me is mounted above the fireplace), do Downward Facing Dog and see when you are suppose to move to the next pose..much less watch HOW to get into the next pose.
