Alan Wake’s American Nightmare

12 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Alan Wake is at its best when it is tense yet manageable.  Those moments when you know you have little ammo but can strategically take out a group of baddies with the right timing are absolutely incredible.  Sadly those moments don’t pop up often in American Nightmare and the story dies out pretty quickly which was the original game’s saving grace.

Alan Wake review (X360)

26 April 2011
  • Excerpt: It's not survival horror: you regenerate health and have ammo bleeding out of your arse. It’s not psychological horror in that copy-and-pasting invites tedium, not terror. I like to think of it as a foundation, and dare Remedy to do better next time.

Review: Alan Wake for Xbox 360

28 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Alan Wake is a writer, a sort of aging-hipster-meets-Stephen-King characters who goes on an ill-fated vacation to the scariest place imaginable–Cauldron Lake. He has writer’s block, which is only a problem until his life becomes a hellish nightmare where a mysterious force known as the “Darkness” wants him dead. He is chased down by characters from his own novels, who he must burn with flashlights and then shoot with conveniently placed handguns.

Alan Wake - DLC - Special Episode 2: The Writer Review

18 November 2010
  • Summary: If you were a fan of the main game simply for its gameplay either pack is worth a look, but if you want more of the story they must be experienced together (if at all). They are functionally an unnecessary addition to the story, serving only to bring the player in a tight circle back to where they started at the conclusion of Alan Wake.
