Alan Wake


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...

Alan Wake Review


Killer storytelling and creative demon slaying make the haunting Alan Wake one for the books.

Strong writing and creative storytelling ; Creepy without being campy ; Dynamic combat is tight ; Improved graphics

Encounters grow repetitive by the end ; Some character animations look dated

Alan Wake feels right at home on the PC. While it retains some of the repetitive elements of the original console version, it does look prettier, and the extra content free of charge is a welcome addition to the package. Even the minor flaws are...

Alan Wake


Alan Wake is still a superbly scripted adventure on PC.

Generators in the environment can often be powered up (one of the very few uses of QTE-like gameplay you'll come across), turning on high powered lamps that can be used either as safe havens, at checkpoints and recharging health stations, or as a means...

Alan Wake Xbox 360 Review


Stephen King is one of the most imaginative and bestselling writers in the world. It's really quite surprising that more games haven't been inspired by his work, or that he hasn't been involved in any gaming stories himself, although surely he's been...

Five years is certainly a long time to wait to end up disappointed with a game upon its eventual arrival, but fortunately Alan Wake is far from a disappointment. The story is wonderfully intriguing and very well paced, the light versus darkness makes...

Alan Wake Xbox 360 Review


Alan Wake is a game with a lot to live up to. After a long development history with little revealed of the game until fairly recently, there was a bubble of hype surrounding its release. With the initial free roaming sandbox style abandoned at some...

Excellent graphics and soundtrack ; Interesting and unusual story ; Innovative light-based combat

Too few enemy types ; Combat can sometimes feel repetitive ; Large amount of collectibles which aren't all integrated into the story

Alan Wake....Worth the Wait?

Terrible review. There's episodic DLC coming to tie up loose ends too.

Alan Wake


An answer to the PS3's Heavy Rain for Xbox 360 users, Alan Wake is a psychological thriller that ropes you in from start to finish.

Alan Wake sports a stunning TV-series styled presentation, an engrossing storyline and dazzling graphics, all of which will keep you hooked to the very end. Unlike first person shooters where you just blast everything in sight, it leaves you feeling as...

Microsoft - Alan Wake


Hype is a terrible thing. Well, perhaps terrible is a bit strong, but while hype might do its job in getting your creation noticed, it can also work against you. We recently saw the film Paranormal ...

It's true that Alan Wake is a little derivative when you step back and consider it, with inspiration taken from a number of horror films, from The Fog to The Birds. But all this is pulled together so well, and it's so slickly presented, that any...

Alan Wake (Xbox 360)


You put the lime in the coconut and drink ‘em both up.

Alan Wake is a fine edition to the fledging Adventure Game genre and will keep you playing through to the end. Although a bit hyped up with its Bright Falls live action prequel series, the idea behind the game is impressive and well implemented despite...
