3.5 out of 10 An interesting game,
David from Dublin, 27 Apr 2011
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.
