Product Details:

In this long-awaited exclusive Xbox 360 title, fill the shoes of one Alan Wake, a man who makes his living from the terror of others as a best-selling suspense novelist. Trapped in the deceptively peaceful Washington town of Bright Falls, where he came to escape the trauma of losing his fiancée, Alan must piece together a mystery to prevent himself from being trapped inside a nightmarish world forever. An intense psychological thriller from Remedy, the creators of Max Payne, Alan Wake raises the bar for future games, creating a true cinematic experience. Explore an expansive world filled with missions, unique puzzles, intense combat, and horrifying enemies. Dig into a twisting and multi-layered story filled with suspense, engaging characters, and shocking revelations.

  • Intense psychological thriller: Alan Wake delivers a deeply psychological and finely crafted plot that raises the bar for storytelling in video games. The riveting story of Alan Wake is propelled by a movie-like atmosphere, compelling situations, memorable characters, and real-time pacing. Remedy has a record of creating and developing games with unique cinematic presentation and exceptionally high production values.
  • Light as a combat element: As Wake journeys deeper into the mystery of Bright Falls, the shadows close in around him. When darkness descends, light becomes his only ally as he fights his way to daybreak. This poses a severe problem for Alan Wake since his enemies seemingly gain strength from the shadows, and before long, light itself becomes his greatest ally. Players must skillfully combine their use of light with more conventional weapons to stand a chance.
  • Realistic, interactive environment: Set in the town of Bright Falls, the hyper-detailed environments of the Pacific Northwest play an important role, as even the change in daylight and weather will profoundly affect the characters and enemies in Alan Wake. The game's advanced rendering engine provides amazingly realistic environments that bring this world to detailed life - from the lush forest of evergreen trees to the quaint small-town buildings and streets. The world of Alan Wake is alive and real.
  • Episodic narrative: The mission-based structure of Alan Wake creates an episodic narrative similar to a deeply structured dramatic television series, such as Twin Peaks and X-Files. As the episodes progress, gameplay evolves to introduce new elements and characters, escalating the level of threat and action in the game.

Game Informer Rating:

Rated 8.5 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Thrilling cinematic experience! Alan Wake is about an author who, through the mysteries of a strange town, accidentally writes a horror story to life. It is filled with good characters which kept me coming back, thrilling sequences that were both chilling and exciting, and an overall fascinating and dark story with a mystery format that is uncommon for most games. With some mild language and a few scary scenes, I would recommend the game to anyone 10 and up who is looking for a fun, thrilling game to play in the dark, and still be able to sleep afterwards. 8/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fell in love almost from the start I got Alan Wake with my Quantum Break pre-order, which were the first two games I had ever gotten from Remedy Entertainment. Quantum Break was good, it has an engaging story and great gameplay. Alan Wake is better. The story-telling in Alan Wake is superb, hooking you from the start with mystery and horror, and once they have you they don't let go. The fighting is an interesting concept, the way you have to systematically take out each enemy, which at times requires patience, fast feet, and a level head. The plot itself has lots of twists, and rewards those who stick their nose in every crook and cranny, finding little bits of lore that further flesh out the story as a whole, and the little tidbits are introduced in just the right moments where they are clues to a mystery that you puzzle out, then have it confirmed or debunked a little while later. Fighting the enemies can be repetitive, on several occasions I couldn't help but think of Destiny's "hold this spot and survive 3 waves" bullcrap, but those moments aren't as obnoxious and the settings are more interesting. While the facial expressions on the characters look a little off, the details put in the environment are awesome; when I was playing I really felt like I was there walking through a small town, with all its quirky events, signs, local radio, and people. I have to agree with the critics over the ending: it was a little anti-climactic and was a serious cliffhanger that left me thinking. "Wait..! That's it!" Still, this is hardly something that should deter anybody from trying it, and in a way the ending makes you hungry for Alan Wake 2 all the more. Overall, I consider this game a must play for anybody who hasn't tried it. If you like thrills, mystery, and gripping plot, try out this game, it won't disappoint.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't believe people like this game Nothing new or special. You just go through level after level of shadowy monsters in the woods. The graphics are awkward. Everyone moves like their faces are numb. This game is a perfect example to demonstrate the uncanny valley, where cartoony graphics are preferable to almost-realistic graphics. The story is uninteresting. You're a writer and your stories are supposedly coming to life. They missed a great gameplay opportunity where they could've allowed the player to affect the outcome of the story by having the character write changes into it. But instead, all we got was some run-of-the-mill nonsense about fighting against the vague and nebulous "darkness."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great A game that's like the last of us on the Xbox 360, yeah that sounds great and it is. The gameplay is great and so are the graphics. The sound makes it feel like you're actually Alan wake. This is a game that I totally recommend in all ways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite game I would rarely even consider giving a video game the rating of 10 but this game by far deserves this rating. This game has a mind boggling story that is fresh with surprises, twists, fantastic atmosphere, unforgettable characters and remarkable writing. This game achieves an atmosphere of total immersion, with the fantastic sound track of songs that I haven't even heard of. The characters were great with very life-like interactions and personalities seasoned with humor and drama. The scenery places you in to the universe of Alan wake with beautifully realized visuals and terrain. There are just so many reasons to love this game. The creators of his game did an excellent job with the story, which is the best and most original that I have ever seen in a video game. Taking cues from the novelist Stephen King this game realizes a wonderful horror story of a man thrust into the darkest depths of his own imagination. This game almost plays out like an episode of the twilight zone. The gameplay in this game is not the high point of this game, but is still very good and enjoyable. The design of having to break down a shield the enemies' posses by shinning a flashlight on them is a remarkable design that I believe deserves praise. The well realized environments keep the gameplay fresh, and safe zones of the game that occur under streetlights (which are somewhat similar to bonfires in Dark souls) are also a very good design. Overall this is a very, very good game with many great things to be had that I would recommend to anyone. I believe this game deserves to be more popular than it is and hopefully the series will become more popular. Please comment on this review to let people know your side of what I wrote.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just okay... I was looking for a new game to play and decided to buy Alan Wake because I heard great things about it. In fact, it came highly recommended by friends and a few GameStop employees. Maybe I had high expectations because of that but needless to say, I was definitely NOT blown away by it. It was very repetitive and all of the enemies look exactly the same. The whole game consists of you shining a flashlight, shooting, running, repeat. I like to keep games that I can play over and over again and playing Alan Wake once feels like I already have played it 10 times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A writer trapped in his own novel I bought this as an early Christmas present and once I played it I was instantly hooked. The drama and eerieness of the surroundings makes you want to explore everything. The whole game is insanely fun it's almost a T rated version of silent hill kinda but it kicks butt very cool game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A surprising must have Made by Microsoft, the graphics are somewhat reminiscent of gears of war 3, this meaning the graphics are very good, especially considering its 2010 release date. The voice acting and sound are great which add to the slight jumps you will get from enemies and cutscenes, albeit the face movements are questionable. That being said, other than the very very rare texture pop in (Dragon Age on PS4 came out 4 years later on a next gen and has an attrocious amount even after various patches), you really appreciate and respect this title. And absolutely must play, although buyer beware, it is very short so dont expect more than 10 hours out of your purchase.
