Alan Wake

When the wife of the best-selling writer Alan Wake disappears on their vacation, his search turns up pages from a thriller he doesn’t even remember writing. A Dark Presence stalks the small town of Bright Falls, pushing Wake to the brink of sanity in his fight to unravel the mystery and save his love. Presented in the style of a TV series, Alan Wake features the trademark Remedy storytelling and pulse-pounding action sequences. As players dive deeper and deeper into the mystery, they’ll face overwhelming odds, plot twists, and cliffhangers. It’s only by mastering the Fight With Light combat mechanic that they can stay one step ahead of the darkness that spreads across Bright Falls. With the body of an action game and the mind of a psychological thriller, Alan Wake’s intense atmosphere, deep and multilayered story, and exceptionally tense combat sequences provide players with an entertaining and original gaming experience.

Alan Wake is not a flawless game. The combat system is entertaining at first but its magic is killed by unnecessary and numerous action segments. Still the game is a very atmospheric adventure of a very rare kind.

Review from Steam

Alan Wake is pretty great. The setting and general vibe of the town, Bright Falls, is very similar to Twin Peaks and there are several references to the show.
It has lite-horror elements: it manages to be creepy, but not outright scary.
The story is very interesting and it's presented as a TV show, so the various chapters have an intro with the recap of what previously happened and a preview of what's to come in the following episode.
The soundtrack is great! I still listen to Children of the Elder God, War and The Poet and the Muse.
Unfortunately the videos are the same as the ones on the Xbox, so they're not high quality.
The 2 extra episodes (they were sold as DLC on the XBox) are great and a direct continuation of the story.
Now the not so great part: the combat. It's very simple. You just point the light at the enemies / moving objects and then shoot once their shadow amor disappears. And this formula never changes. The DLCs at leat try some different things, so they feel better paced.
Also, Alan is a writer that apparently never even approached a gym, so he'll run for like 10 seconds and then he'll just shuffle along like an old injured man.
Still, I feel that the strenghts of the game outshine the combat encounters and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a game with a good story and an interesting place to explore.

Alan Wake | ★★★★★
This is the kind of game that I would endorse to a friend who has no history in campaign games just to hook them to it. Alan Wake is filled with utterly compelling cast of characters, excellent soundtracks and captivating scenery that makes you fall in love with nature. An extraordinary story that lets you experience Déjà vu by forecasting you the event through manuscript before it even happens.
A game that shouldn't be played other than Mouse and Keyboard. I also recommend playing it without HUD to help increase the immersion of the beautiful town of Bright Falls.
