Summary: I am maybe one or two episodes into the game after four hours of playing in total, and I can with confidence say that Alan Wake is definetly a good investment of both of your time and money if you enjoy suspenseful games.
Summary: Short review alert! You already know what the game is about from the other reviewers so I'll just say what I liked about it. Fun gameplay. You shine the light on enemies to burn away the darkness. Once the darkness is gone you go postal with a glock, or your weapon of choice.
Summary: It's Remedy, so gamers will be familiar with the understated realism of the level design and graphics which further engross you into the game. Also present are noir references that end up being darkly funny.
Summary: An amazing game. The story sucked me in and held my attention like no other game has ever done. The pacing was perfect. Following another reviewer's comments, I started out playing it on "hard".
Summary: I am a big fan of a game that has an awesome story...my thought is anyone can make a game with good graphics, and decent shooting, but a good, original story is difficult to come by, and not since Lost have I gotten on to forums so often to discuss the story. This was a great time, not too long!
Summary: I didn't bother getting the game until this year, and I am shocked both by how cheap it is now and how amazingly good it is. Alan Wake is a very story-driven game that is told in a multi-episode format.
Summary: A greater portion of the horror games that have come out within last six years have been heavily combat based and centered around gruesome imagery. This title is quite different and offers a lot of mystery coupled with great suspense.
Outstanding Story. Addictive Gameplay. Darkness. Light. This is Alan Wake.

Summary: Alan Wake is a story driven game from Remedy. Alan Wake plays out like a TV series with episodes (Chapters), Cliffhangers each episode and shows "Previously on Alan Wake" upon starting a new episode.
Summary: For the price this game is on the top of my list. Many times during the game play I was ready to jump out of my shoes. It is sort of like a Twin Peaks story. Play it with the lights out. It is a five star.
