on June 29, 2013 at 02:08 PM
If you've ever seen any of Alfred Hitchcock's renowned psychological thrillers, then you're no stranger to how they bend logic and consciousness into something dark and disturbing in order to create an enthralling sense of suspense. Alan Wake , Remedy's own psychological thriller, is...

Not bad for £6.
on March 14, 2012 at 07:54 PM
It's very rare that I'd be willing to give something a second chance what with the amount of stuff out there. I hated this game for the longest time and I can't even remember why anymore. It's pretty fun, and I'm glad I went back to it. Story The story surrounds a writer who is suffering...
Amazing, A Must Buy
on March 09, 2012 at 06:07 PM
It took me a little while before I picked up this game. I wanted to get it, but I never got around to it for some reason. Then my girlfriend started to get more into gaming and she loves horror games. I was trying to think of games she should get into and I remembered that Alan Wake was supposed to be...
Audio and Environment Make Alan Wake a Truly Great Horror Experience
on February 24, 2012 at 07:27 PM
The fog grows dense. The wind picks up. The night gets darker. Lights flicker. You know a large number of enemies are coming, but the tension and anticipation grows nevertheless. These events in and of themselves make the hair stand up on the back of your neck, and the sound effects that accompany them...

Wombat On The Gril: Alan Wake Review
on December 19, 2011 at 05:44 PM
Alan Wake is truely scary game. It actually scared me MORE than Dead Space 2. Shocking. Though some minor misteps occur this is a game that should not be missed. Graphics: Honestly, I have a PS3 and a 360, and the graphics on this rival games for PS3 that are extremely polished. Sure, Uncharted 3's...
Review of Alan Wake
on October 01, 2011 at 11:24 PM
I was instantly interested in Alan Wake after hearing only a few sparse details about the game. As my friends on Xbox Live know I am a huge fan of third-person shooters (why play as a character that I can’t be when I can play as one that I can see?) and an even bigger fan of survival horror games...

Alan Wake is one of the better single player games that have been created in a while. It combines fear with narrative in a very refined way. PLAY THIS GAME! There are two complaints I had with this game: 1. The ending is open and you have to buy the first DLC to understand it. 2. After you beat it once...
"The Poet and His Muse" An Alan Wake Review.
on March 11, 2011 at 09:55 PM
Alright so recently i went to Gamestop for my birthday to get Dragon Age 2, but i wanted to get something else as well, I thought about Call Of Duty: World at War for a moment But then decide That "Hey i could get this any day and i wouldn't be getting any thing new to the table" so instead...
Variety is Key
on March 10, 2011 at 02:05 PM
I began playing Alan Wake because I am a big horror fan, but the problem is, I don't find too many games all that scary. With that said Alan Wake is pretty creepy. It uses it's atmosphere to great lengths and overall it adds to the experience. Hell, I'd say it is the experience. I feel the...
Story and Graphic Mastery
on September 24, 2010 at 09:13 AM
I did not know what to expect from this game when I first went to gamestop to buy it. I was blown away by all that was this game. It is a masterpiece. The graphics are a force to reckoned with, and the story has no words to describe how good it is, but, I might as well try to tell you. Alan Wakes starts...
Alan Wake Definitely not the everyday game
on August 09, 2010 at 11:29 PM
When I first went to the store to buy this game I expected a solid game with an alright story, and decent gameplay. I could not have been more wrong about this game. I figured it got an 8.5 and that it got solid reviews I'd enjoy this game. However I was not ready for the experience I was about to...
Alan Wake Reivew: A Love/Hate Relationship
on August 08, 2010 at 06:23 PM
A couple of days back, I made a little blog post on how to make a good survival horror gam e. Of the many examples I used, Alan Wake received equal amounts of praise and shtick from me, and I feel that I should elaborate a little more on what I love about Alan Wake, and what riles me up about it. Alan...
Alan should Wake up
on August 08, 2010 at 12:19 AM
Are graphics all that matter? As it’s probably already been stated, I hate the fact that today’s gamers will go gah-gah over anything that has good graphics. Think about it, how many times over the years have you heard or possibly said yourself (naughty naughty): The graphics on it are amazing...
on July 07, 2010 at 06:06 PM
I rented this game recently, and pulled an all-nighter. I really did not want to put it down, and am really looking foward to the DLC release. The concept alone is enough to make Stephen King weep. But the story is not by any means the greatest part about this game. The artistic direction and the soundtrack...

Alan Wake, where story and atmosphere get the limelight
on May 28, 2010 at 07:03 PM
Alan Wake is a game for the Xbox 360 that spent about five years in development, mostly because Bethesda got halfway through it and decided they didn’t like it anymore for some reason. Following its stay at Bethesda, it was handed off to Remedy, who went about crafting a well put together Psychological...
Bright Falls (cont.)
on May 26, 2010 at 09:23 AM
When I started up my Xbox 360 and saw that Bright Falls was available for download I thought... hmm what is this Bright Falls crap. I go into this mini series thinking its going to be a knock off of some terrible B rated film that Xbox was giving Live members for free. Then i thought wait... Xbox doesn't...
