“Remedy's done a great job of mixing elements of written work, television, and video games to create an experience full of scares, laughs, and thrills that's just as fun to play as it is to watch.”

Steam Big Picture

Over dit spel

Wanneer de vrouw van de best verkochte schrijver Alan Wake verdwijnt op hun vakantie, duiken pagina's in zijn zoektocht op van een thriller die hij niet eens meer herinnert geschreven te hebben. Een duistere aanwezigheid valt het kleine dorpje Bright Falls lastig, en duwt Wake tot het uiterste van zijn gezond verstand om het mysterie te ontrafelen en zijn liefde te redden.

Gepresenteerd in de stijl van een tv-serie, is Alan Wake voorzien van de bekende Remedy-verhalen en bloedstollende actiescènes. Als spelers dieper en dieper duiken in het mysterie, zullen ze geconfronteerd worden met overweldigende overmacht, plotwendingen en cliffhangers. Het is alleen door het beheersen van de Flight With Light-vechttechniek dat ze een stap voorblijven van de duisternis die zich verspreid over Bright Falls.

Met het lichaam van een actiespel en de gedachte van een psychologische thriller, de intense sfeer van Alan Wake, de diepe en vele lagen in het verhaal, en de uitzonderlijk spannende vechtscènes geven spelers een entertainende en originele game-ervaring.

Alan Wake is a great psychological horror game with brilliant storyline. Onslaught of enemies and lack of ammunition, despair. Nice mountain scenery, pleasant radio and television stations. "Filmness" and climate pours out of the screen - and is still a great audio track at the end of each chapter.Feels like you are playing through a Stephen King book. The game mechanics are good and everything is so pretty! Worth recommending.

Alan Wake is not a flawless game. The combat system is entertaining at first but its magic is killed by unnecessary and numerous action segments. Still the game is a very atmospheric adventure of a very rare kind.

Another good Remedy game, fits along side their previous good games of Death Rally - Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne.

Not only was the game play fun with quite interesting mechanics of Light VS. Dark, the story line got me interested to the very end.

And the end of the story is where the entire presentation falters.
Slight cliffhanger, no solid end.
According to numerous websites, there were plans on an Alan Wake sequel, but that didn't due to 'not enough sales' says Mr. Microsoft Games. Which is a pity.

Otherwise, a good ride till the sudden stop.
A good buy indeed.

A Stephen King like novel of a game! You as the player Alan Wake, don't know if you are living in a nightmare and all that around you is a bad dream or you are wide awake and dealing with reality in the surroundings around you. It's fun and spooky mystery! You will feel on edge most of the game. Good misxture of storytelling, and action sequnces so you never get bored. The soundtrack is also a must listen and really sets the mood and atmosophere for this game. The graphics, lighting and world textures are absolutely stunning! Voice acting is also top notch and does not feel cheesy in any way. I would put Alan Wake game it right up there with some of the most memorable horror video games of all time such as Silent Hill and Resident Evil.

Alan Wake is an extraordinarily crafted game.
Its unique supernatural story pulls you so much into the game, making it hard for you to stop playing it!
It has a great story, graphics, crazy atmosphere, sound, gameplay. It's very impressive.

The only downside is that the camera can cause some issues, looks like console-to-PC port was still not done completely right. But that can't stop you from playing it

I've beaten this game and the DLC multiple times before despite my hours as of (Nov 18th, 2014) saying otherwise. This game has one of the best storylines I've ever played in a game. It is a true "Mind ♥♥♥♥" to say the least and will keep you entertained from start to finish. The games graphics are still good when compared to next gen graphics and the game itself can be quite challenging at times. The gameplay is a bit clunky at times but is good enough.

Graphics: At the time of release: 10/10, Currently: 8.5/10
Story line: 9.5/10
Gameplay: 8/10
Game length: 11-15 hours
Overall: 9/10

Deep psychological thriller at its best. The suspense keeps you on your toes all the time. The writing is brilliant, acting and voice acting are just tasty, dramatic events unfold like in a movie - well, that's what the authors wanted, whole game feels like a movie. TwinPeaks-ish movie.
Once you get used to clumsy camera and controls, you're all set to enjoy this intense ride.
The visuals are beautiful (I made a ton of screenshots), design is awesome, sounds are engulfing, and the music... both original and licensed, it adds A LOT to the mood. Combat is satisfying, too. A lot of collectibles and achievements, if you're into that stuff.
Overall, this is a must-play and unforgettable experience

In Alan Wake you take up the role as a writer named...Alan Wake. After his wife goes missing you set out to find her while a Dark Presence haunts the town of Bright Falls.

In Alan Wake you fight against darkness, and I really love that. Armed with a flashlight and a revolver you make your way through Bright Falls and it's surrounding mountains and forests.

The eviroments and the scenery is outstanding and it really improves the light vs darkness theme the game has. The story is fantastic. Really now, it's really good and doesn't give everything away directly, so you might have to reflect on what happened. It will still leave you very satisfied.

The combat is pretty cool but it can become very tedious after a while as it can feel like you're doing the same thing over and over again. But the supplies are limited so it really gives it this somewhat survival feeling.

Alan Wake is not a perfect game, It's close but not perfect.

Pros
- Fantastic story and theme
- Great enviroments and scenery

Cons
- The combat, it can become repetitious but I wouldn't abastain from playing the game because of this.

A fantastic (but short) atmospheric game relying on its strongpoints of storytelling to make up for what can be seen as shortcomings in the action sequences. A great deal of effort is put into engrossing the player in its world, setting up th e game as an episodic miniseries, complete with intros, recaps, and outros, as well as plenty of collectibles and side tihngs to find that expand on what's happening. The game plays well, but unfortunately combat can fall short and become repetitive, since the tools at your disposal are few and mostly upgrade in pure numbers. It's tense enough to keep you on your toes, but playing on normal/hard, i never felt truly stretched for resources except once during the game. There are only a few enemy types so combat becomes fairly formulaic after a time.

That said, the presentation of the game, and the story it tells make up for the difference in spades, and it's a shame the game only got two small DLC episodes instead of the true "second season" it deserved.

Would definitely recommend to fans of the thriller/mystery genre, as long as you're OK with never really finding out what happens after the end.

Altrough i only played 5 hours so far and only completed 2 episodes, i have to admit this is one of the best games i have ever played!

Great graphics, Amazing story, Very interesting and creative, and also very spooky.
Most stuff are unexpected here, which makes it really awesome!
I tend to get spooked and jumped one too many times, but it doesn't annoy me since the game is so interesting.
I am not sure yet if it is worth the $29.99 or not, i am not sure how many episodes i have more expecting on my way at the game.
Me personally, got it on sale but it was worth every penny i have spent on it!
Buy it!

Alan Wake shows off some nice dark grizzly graphics and a new gameplay feature where your flashlight is your best friend to ward off monsters. While Alan Wake is an action horror game, I found the action to not be the most fluid action in these types of 3rd person games. The storyline was good, though not fantastic by any means. While I'd recommend playing this game, I wouldn't place it in my top list of games you should play. Play this if you enjoy the horror/action genre, or else move on.

I played American Nightmare before playing this one, so i was kinda dropped into the story without having knowledge of the backstory of the characters and the main plot itself. When this game went on sale, i immediately bought it because i enjoyed American Nightmare, so i thought that probably i would enjoy the main game even more and i did.

The combat system its not the best, but its okay for PC. The story itself and the events that happen on the game are pretty good, the idea of the darkness vs light was innovative for its time and for people that like good storylines in videogames, you have here a good example of it.

I could see Alan Wake as a TV show, but i enjoyed it a lot as a videogame and i wish they release a sequel of the game, maybe to close this series with a "happy ending" to Alan´s story. I think the guy deserves it by now.

8/10. I carry a flashlight everytime i go out in the darkness, just in case. Thx Remedy Entertainment.

Alan Wake is the sort of game only the people at Remedy could pull off. It has all the charm and meticulous world-building that made the Max Payne series great with the game universe having its own pop culture you're privvy to and yet managing to keep your nerves on edge.

It's not a terrifying game in the sense that Amnesia or Silent Hill are (though Silent Hill is the series I'd liken it to the most) but it does its job as a suspenseful and tense survival horror nonetheless. Using light as a weapon and having to conserve your resources makes every fight an exciting one and the pacing is very well executed, giving you the occasional downtime while the story advances.

The story is an interesting breed and pays homage to multiple works from HP Lovecraft and Stephen King to Twin Peaks and the Twilight Zone and does its job well to keep you playing. There are some over-arching themes that I found interesting, but that I won't spoil here. Suffice to say that as far as Survival Horror stories go, Alan Wake is at least moderately ambitious, thematically. The structure is an episodic one splitting the story in several manageable 2-3 hour long chapters giving you a clear cut between story arcs so that you can take a break for the day.

The graphics make for some beautiful, if perhaps a bit dated, sceneries even if most of the game takes place at night. There is attention to detail to spare in Alan Wake and it seems to be a labor of love. The sound and voice acting are subject to little criticism and I guarantee that at least one or two tracks from the score and soundtrack will wind up in your playlist.

It comes highly recommended.

Old but Gold.
If you like horror-action game ,this is your answer. DO NOT MISS THIS.
BEFORE "what is this game look like boing game to play" "i need only card drop"
AFTER played 10 min "this game make me heart attack, can't stop playing btw the storyline so fkin good and Graphic too"
don't judge this game so fast just try it yourself.

+need flashlight combine with gun to kill taken
+environment and shock scene make you fear the darkness (if you turn off the light and play this game)
+easy to control
+you can't runaway from taken without flashlight
+light is everything

-sometimes you can't dodge even your press dodge botton in the right time
-alot of battery but limit ammo (flashlight can't kill taken, if you run out of ammo just run)
-make me heart attack

82/100 RECOMMEND.

Alan Wake is an incredibly strong port following the original release on the XBOX 360 - itself preceded by nearly a decade in development. Remedy (creators of the original two Max Payne games) deliver a lovingly crafted narrative married to engaging survival horror gameplay, and fans of either will find a lot to appreciate. Alan Wake borrows liberally and eagerly from a variety of influences - homages can be found from sources as diverse as norse mythology, Stephen King, Twin Peaks and the previously mentioned Max Payne.

VISUALS AND ATMOSPHERE: Graphically, the game has chops. The small town of Bright Falls (and the forests of the Pacific Northwest that surround it) are well done. Small details strewn throughout the sets reward observant players by alluding to a narrative beyond the main story. The game often finds clever ways of interacting with the props of the environment, which lends itself towards the feeling of a very dramatic (and dynamic) atmosphere. The effects of the darkness - on the environment and everything in it - is easily one of the most impressive mechanics in the game.

However, stilted animations often betray the models, resulting in awkward puppet-like mouth movements when characters speak. This is most noticable when characters are in distress, and regrettably (given the theme), characters often have a good reason to be.

Sound is well done. Ambient music is tense but often subtle (though it can border on repetitive), and the game prefers to use it's carefully chosen collection of licensed music to solicit emotions beyond circumstancial flare ups. Voice acting was solid.

4/5

NARRATIVE: Alan Wake is both author and audience of the story, an unreliable narrator thrust into progressively stranger circumstances as he investigates the disappearance of his wife. As a protagonist he is far removed from the chisled and grizzled stereotype, often openly frustrated, petulant or terrified. There is a clear sacrifice made where the depth given to him as a character supercedes our ability to really step into his shoes, and I found it to be a trade worth making. The story is divided up into clear chapters emulating a television episode, featuring a brief recap ("Previously on Alan Wake") and a clear intermission at their end. It is an often confusing story, but unapologetically so, and the presentation is exceptionally well done.

4/5

GAMEPLAY: Presented in third person with a focus on light and darkness, expanding on the themes strongly featured in the story. The bulk of gameplay involves either exploration or combat, which is often difficult. Enemies will often spawn without end in dark areas of the woods, adding urgency in your race to the next light source. I felt challenged (and at times frustrated), but never cheated.

There are limitations to the engine. The excitement you'll feel after stepping behind the wheel of one of the game's many vehicles will fade quickly when you actually have to drive them. Even with care, driving often felt like a DUI simulator, and vehicles frequently arrived at their destinations like they'd gone through a demolition derby. Additionally, the game often pretends to be a platformer and fails, miserably (as you invariably will during these portions). Jump mechanics are imprecise and I often found difficulty in clearing gaps with any degree of certainty.

3/5

OVERALL: 4/5, easy. Well worth the asking price.
