An interesting game,

A lot of effort went into this game and the supernatural themes are nicely used, but ultimately I'm a guy who wants to enjoy a game for every minute I'm playing it and Alan Wake spends too much time with you in gloomy surroundings going through largely the same set of actions to dispatch enemies.
The game has it's good moments, when you shoot a flare at the light hating monsters just right, when a scripted sequence hits just the right tone, when a game character manages to land on your good side, and the occasional decent plot moment; but ultimately I feel the good moments are too far apart and what you're left with is a decent interactive experience that may not be to everyone's taste.
Good, but lacking in polish

Despite the cheesy sub Steven King plot, and the 5 years out of date gameplay, I found this game very entertaining. The use of light as a safe haven and some of the set pieces were great and the atmosphere of the game is genuinely spooky.
It is well worth checking out.

Eerie Story, good game play but lacks the action to really challenge you. Still overall worth a look
