“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

Om dette spillet

Når konen til den bestselgende forfatteren Alan Wake forsvinner i ferien deres, gir hans søken sider fra en thriller han ikke kan huske å ha skrevet. A Dark Presence følger den lille byen Bright Falls, og presser Wake til bristepunktet av hans psyke i søken om å avsløre mysteriet og redde sin elskede.

Presentert i TV-seriestil, har Alan Wake kjennetegn til Remedy historiefortelling og puls-hevende actionsekvenser. Ettersom spillere dykker dypere og dypere ned i mysteriet, vil de stå ansikt til ansikt med overhvelmende odds, historietvister og spenningspunkter. Det er kun ved å mestre Fight With Light-slossmekanikken at de kan holde seg ett steg unna mørket som sprer seg over Bright Falls.

Med skallet til et actionspill og innholdet til en psykologisk thriller, gir Allan Wake spillerne en intens atmosfære, en dyp historie med flere lag og eksepsjonelle intense sloss-sekvenser i en underholdende og original spillopplevelse.

This has been my favorite game since I was twelve. When I saw the opportunity to get it on Steam I was so excited.

Warning: Do not play this game for gameplay.

This game has repetitive combat and a rather linear progression of gameplay and story.

But this game has remained my favorite game for two reasons:

1. The story is extremely well done, and the atmosphere and world building are amazing.

2. The combat system is rather novel. I, personally, haven't seen this type of combat in any other game. You must manage the use both types of weapons that you have in order to defeat each enemy. The flashlight to remove the "darkness" shield, and the gun to actually kill the guy. Each type of weapon has a different type of ammo to manage as well.

Every time I go back and play this game I get nostagic. It has remained my favorite game since it first came out.

Step into the shoes of Alan Wake, a best-selling novelist who is going on vacation in hopes to relieve his writer's block. However, Alan has much more to think about other than his novel when his wife mysteriously vanishes, and pages of a manuscript that he doesn't remember writing suddenly begin to appear; ominously outlining events that are about to occur. Alan Wake is brought to us by the developer of Max Payne 1 and 2, Remedy Entertainment, and was initially released in 2010 for the Xbox 360 before finally making its way to PC in 2012.

Things start off normal enough, you're on a ferry with your wife Alice, headed to a remote destination in the forest for your vacation. Your writer's block has been killing your career, you need the escape. You're met by friendly locals who are excited that a big-shot such as yourself will be vacationing near their little town. You stop by a gas station on your way to the cabin that you and Alice have rented, but once you come out of the bathroom things begin to go haywire. However, it's when Alice goes missing at the cabin that things really heat up. She's scared of the dark, so badly that she becomes paralyzed with fear, and now everything is dark; save for what becomes illuminated by your flashlight, and your wife is nowhere to be found.

The storytelling in the game is absolutely fantastic, as Alan's inner monologue is spoken as though it is in book format. The game itself is set-up in a TV show format, where once you reach the next chapter you'll be greeted with a "Last Time on Alan Wake" sequence. The entire experience is like playing through a deranged horror show while listening to a coupling audio book. These unique factors only adds to the eeriness of the game, and they also add a different spin on the horror genre as a whole. For the time of release, the environments are lavishly detailed and come with a thick amount of ambiance such as fog, rain, and lightning. Most of your time will be spent in the dark, with only a flashlight to help guide you from one creepy destination to the next. While most of the baddies look the same, their potential of showing up always keeps you looking over your shoulder to make sure that you're not being chased by their near silent presence.

Equipped initially with only a flashlight and a pistol, you will later find yourself with more diverse guns to battle the onslaught of evil that awaits. Even though Alan Wake is fast-paced, the fact that you never know from which direction, and when, the devious shadow-people will make an appearance keeps tight tension in the air. Combat is simple, you must shine a concentrated flashlight beam on the shadow-people to dissolve their darkness barrier, and then fill them full of bullets. Paranormal entities are abound, and even inanimate objects become possessed and deadly. When you get overwhelmed, flares and flashbangs are your best friend when it comes to keeping these monstrosities at bay. Whatever you do, your ultimate goal is to stay in the light; that's the only place that you're safe in, but well-lit areas are few and far between.

To say that Alan Wake was, and still is, one of the best horror games of the last generation is an understatement. The game was initially a diamond in the rough when it was released on the Xbox 360, though it appears to have garnered the attention it deserves after being released on PC. Graphically, it doesn't even look that dated, it was very far advanced for its time when looking at other games of the same genre and time period, such as F.E.A.R. and Condemned: Criminal Origins. Alan Wake has a flair to it that no other horror title has yet to emulate, duplicate, or even attempt to replicate, it's one of the few games that have been left alone to be uniquely itself. Even six years later, this game stands as one of the horror games that must be played, but not for the price of $32.99 CAD; wait for a summer or holiday sale first.

Rating: 5.0/5.0 - An astonishing achievement, this game must be played.

This ended up being a bit too much for the casual gamer me. But I enjoyed the second one much more. I just found I'd get stuck in these loops where I didn't have enough health/flashlight and couldnt get to the next spot. I think if you're well versed in games, you'll be fine. But if you're like me and struggle with button mashing and FPS, you might wanna watch someone else play this one, and skip to the second game. The second game in the series basically takes all the criticism for this one and fixes it in the next one. The story for this one is awesome, I just geniuenly found it too hard for me ! Not for the casual gamer ;) great voice acting though.

One of my favorite games of all time. It has the panache of a Stephen King's thriller novel and many references to popular culture (The Shining movie, Norse mythology, etc.) Also, the graphics are incredibly beautiful and Remedy (the team behind the excellent Max Payne series) did a really great job with Alan Wake. If you like mystery-driven games filled with a little psychological horror, you'll love it. 10/10

I have to say pretty awsome, the story was cool the music was awsome *cough lady of the light cough* and I loved the manuscript idea, overall pretty good game.

Just finished the game on Normal as I couldn't play it on Nightmare as you have to beat Normal first and here are my thoughts.
I saw that this game had very positive reviews but for me this game wasn't that good. I don't know if I had to high expectations when I played it or what.
The story for me was a mess and was cut up in a weird order.
It was first when I got to episode 5 that I actually started to enjoy the game. Story was getting good and the gameplay were more fluent.
There is so many stop and goes in this game it didn't feel fluently for me. So easy to not stand correctly to press buttons and things.
Controls felt very slow to respond at times so the combat felt bad.
Well for me this game wasn't enjoyable until episode 5 and that is way to late for me to be able to recommend this game.
It just wasn't a game I could enjoy.

This game had me on the edge of my seat on more than one occasion. It's not really survival horror but there's a lot of suspense & thriller moments, then it just gets crazy towards the end.

PROS
-Very well done Story
-Good 3rd person action
-High Suspense & Good Comedy
-Well Done Episodic Elements

CONS
-A bit over dramatic at times
-Gameplay is Repetitive
-Ending gets crazy

STORY

I don't want to go into too much detail here since the story is really where this game shines the most. Basically, you're a writer with writer's block & you move to a new town to get some insperation. Then things start to go south real quick. You start seeing wierd shadows that chase you & people think you're crazy, until they start chasing them as well. Now you've got to find a way to stop the darkness from taking over the town.

GAMEPLAY

If you've played any 3rd person shooter then this will come naturally for you. The only difference is you have to weaken the enemies with your flash light before you can actually deal damage to them with your guns. Light em up & then light them up again. There are hidden collectables throughout each level that detail more of the game's story. The game is also presented in episodic fashion but it's done fairly well. Each chapter begins & ends with an intro & credit sequence like you're watching a TV Mini series. Other than that the gameplay is pretty straight forward 3rd person action shooting at it's finest.

OVERALL

Overall, the game is enjoyable if a bit short. There's not really much to it either other than flash light, shoot, repeat. The best part of the game is the acting & story segments which also happen while shooting things which is what keeps you interested in playing it. If it was just a shooter without a story it would be fairly mediocre but because the story is so well done it ranks it up a couple more notches.

Alan Wake ist ein besonderes Spiel. Es beinhaltet Elemente, die einem sonst nur selten begegnen. So habe ich persönlich das erste mal allein mit einer Taschenlampe böse Kreaturen bekämpft.
Die Grafik ist ok und das Gameplay nichts weltbewegendes, aber die Athmosphäre ist packend und fesselnd.
Auf jeden Fall einen Versuch wert ;)

Alan wake is another classic and well done story written by one of my favourites, Sam Lake.

Without actually looking into the story prior to playing the game you will be absolutely blown away!

The combat system is suitable for the type of game it is trying to be, and at times it adds quite a large amount of difficulty whilst up against larger amounts of enemies. Even on the normal difficulty you will find yourself trying to avoid alot of battles due to the fact of having limited ammo/battery supplies, however the game still balances this out with environmental advantages.

A lot of other reviewers have tried to class this game as a "typical shooter genre", but i find this to not be the case. Though it does have some minor auto healing abilities the combat itself is quite unique and far from a typical shooter. To be honest a majority of the time you'd prefer to use enviromental light or obstacles to defeat enemies as opposed to your weapons.

Definately in my list of all time favourites, right with another Sam Lake written game "Max Payne". Well done Remedy!

Played this a few years ago on the Xbox 360 and now got around to playing it on the PC. Overall I feel this game has a great story and I love the whole atmosphere to it and it is well worth experiencing.

The combat is interesting but my only complaint is it doesn't really change much throughout the game or have much diversity to it. Same with the enemies faced.

This game is mind bogglingly good. The story is rich with detail and it appears to be a new idea for the community. It plays like a third person shooter, but it's more of a mystery. The atmosphere with the sound and graphics creates a thrilling story. I enjoyed the game quite a lot. I recommend it.

While the Twin Peakseque atmosphere and narrative of this game is definetely intriguing, the combat sure as hell isn't. It's dull, overly repetitive and highly unimaginative. I uninstalled it after the second chapter, of which there are six. However, I'm looking forward to watching the story (and the Night Springs... series, similar to Max Payne's Adress Unknown) unfold on YouTube.

Alan Wake * 9/10

To be honest I didn't know this title until it's been out from years and was already on heavy sale. Lucky me. I knew Remedy for their masterpiece, Max Payne, so when I realized Alan Wake was their latest game I took it without further inquiries. And I really believe I was right.

Alan Wake is a third action (and I dare to call it) survival shooter (considered the measured amount of ammos and the weak constitution of the protagonist). You are Alan Wake, a world best seller Writer... Kind of a Stephen King level of Fame. Due to the amount of stress after the writing of the last book Alan is retiring with his beloved Wife Alice in a small mountain town called Bright Falls. When they get to their cabin Alice is abducted by a dark entity and pulled to the depth of Cauldron Lake. Alan will then realize that there's something really odd and dark happening in Bright Falls and their citizens.
The game is structured as a classic third person shooter, but you won't have any mass destruction weapon, nor you won't have any huge amount of ammos. The most interesting concept in the gameplay is the contrast between light and darkness, so when the Takens (citizens possessed by darkness) approach you, you must light them with your torch first in order to get rid of their "protective dark aura" and be able to shoot them and eliminate them. Also there are few street lamps here and there that will give you protection against them (and serve as checkpoint as well). Besides, this game is definitely full of collectibles that will lead to various achievements.
Anyways this game It's not about the gameplay (which actually includes funny sections where you can drive a car which can be used to quickly enlight the takens and drive over them B-) ), nor about the graphics, which is nice and always shows beautiful landscapes and ambiences. It's about the story, which is not original but involving. Besides the unexpected end, the story is quite linear and explicative but its strong side is how it gets you involved with the main protagonist and other characters. And this is one of the few times it happened to me, because the game isn't what I'd call revolutionary or innovative yet I'm still playing it, or better, re-playing to attempt a 100% completion which is something I rarely attempt on this kind of games.
The story and the settings are quite dark, almost horror. Almost because you'll never jumpscare nor be afraid or stressed as in other games like, I don't know... Amnesia, maybe? But it's still a great setting anyways. The story doesn't end on its own as there are a couple of DLCs included: "The Signal" and "The Writer" Which follow after the end of the original game (no spoiler about it, as they're strictly bound to the end).

+++PROs+++
  • ALAN WAKE. This game is a story about the protagonist, his insecurities, his struggle to help Alice even though all the odds are against him. I liked the character and how he relates to the other caracters in the game, I like how he's narrating the facts and his thoughts as if he was reading pages of a book, not to mention te ending of the game.
  • GAMEPLAY. It's not a huge innovation but the way you need to face your enemies -(light them first, then shoot) is a very creative and fitting idea. Not to mention the huge amount of collectibles that might contribute in increasing the playability of the game. And don't forget the driving sections, taking downs enemies by night and breathing fresh air by day in those mountain streets...
  • LANDSCAPES And AMBIENCES. I definitely loved all the views this game offers you, mountains, lakes, rivers, valleys, not to mention the various locations.
  • MUSIC. There are tracks that really are great (just don't touch anything in the main menu and let go the trailer), not to mention the credit rolls at the end of each episode, while ingame there are some interesting tunes that will follow your action giving the right ominous or appropriate mood for the situation. Really a great job.

  • STAMINA. I understand that considering the survival side of the game you can't be a professional runner but seriously, I can run way more than Alan does, and I'm spending my entire days sitting at work...
