I enjoyed the original Alan Wake immensely: for me it is still one of the prime examples of how an action-adventure 3rd person game can be made into an exciting and scary experience. So I started playing Alan Wake's American Nightmare with high expectancies, but quickly the game let me rather down own this. American Nightmare is not really a sequel nor a prequel to the original, it's more like a standalone game on the same "universe", but on a much smaller scale, so in the end it felt like some sort of expansion pack to me, using the same protagonist, game mechanics and of course game engine.

This engine still stands firm and delivers more than decent graphics: it's great in creating an atmosphere thanks to superb lighting, something which the original game used to immensely scaring effect. Although graphics are fine in this new installment, the actual gameplay is not. It felt almost painful to see the original game's tension and feeling of being utterly desperate while fighting off the forces of darkness turned into some Rambo-like experience. In the original game, guns, ammo and the ever-important batteries for the flashlight (sometimes it was the ONLY weapon to fight of enemies) were so scarce at moments that it almost drove me crazy, but the feeling of relief and accomplishment after finally getting further in the story, was all the more satisfying for it. American Nightmare uses the same game mechanics, but provides such an arsenal of over-powerful weapons, an almost endless supply of ammo and a flashlight that recharges in a matter of seconds. As a result of these changes, the entire gaming experience changed from an exciting horror adventure to a lacklustre shooter where I just blasted my way past hordes of enemies. Were it not for the obvious comparison to the original game, I'd probably have enjoyed American Nightmare a bit more, especially since after finishing the story there are a number of arcade-levels where the goal is just to get as many kills and as high a score as possible. These are played on fairly large and well-developed maps, and felt like playing more natural than the story.

The story, perhaps the main protagonist in the original Alan Wake, is perhaps the weakest point in this newer installment. It's made coplex in an unnatural feeling way and lacks focus. But most problematic of all, it forces the player to play through the three locations (only three!!) three times, each time "altering history" a little bit, but in the end this feels more like a gimmick and the net result is simply too repetitve a game.

I'd loved to give this game a heartily recommendation as a worthy addition to the brilliant original one, but it really fails to do so. As it stands, it's not a bad game, but it did not live up to my expectancies at all.

Gameplay: 15/30
Graphics: 14/20
Sound: 8/10
Technical: 6/10 (it felt like being slower and less well optimized)
Replayability: 6/10 (SP only, but the arcade levels add some extra challenges with leaderbords)
Steam integration: 5/10 (no cards, a small bunch of achievements, while the original game really shined here)
Personal appreciation: 4/10

Overall score: 58/100

As a huge fan of Alan Wake, I have to say I found Alan Wake's American Nightmare rather disappointing. What this game does well is the atmosphere, the gameplay, the voice acting, and other minor technical details. What is doesn't do well is the story.

The game gives you 9 missions, but it's more like 3; you essentially play 3 missions 3 times each. I won't go into detail, but each time you repeat one of the missions there is different dialogue and slightly modified objectives. You'll see what I mean after you finish the game. I think if the story hadn't been set up do this, it would have been a much better game. The game is actually labeled as a spinoff from the original set in the same universe, and man, ain't that the truth. If you were hoping to get any significant continuation of story from the original out of this game, I'm sorry to tell you, but you won't find it here. I would have been truly upset if this was the sequel.

Nevertheless, I still found the game enjoyable for everything it did right. If you are a die-hard Alan Wake fan, I recommend this to you. If you have not played Alan Wake before, I strongly urge you to play the original before playing this. If you played original Alan Wake and it wasn't necessarily your favorite game/you thought it was just alright, you might be better off waiting for the true sequel. Otherwise, this is a great game to pick up on a sale.

With independent additions happens that they are often quite different than what after the contact with the basic version players expect. Wake's journey gets less creepy and more shooty in the fun but still somehow manages to be entertaining.

Alan Wake game was good, the gameplay is not without issues namely the framerates slows down even on low settings. American Nightmare was a bit of of an improvement although the narrator was different and the UI is not similar as well. The story is not satisfactory, it is like a B-movie follow up of the original Alan Wake game. Then the 2nd part of the game gets the ultimate stick-up-your-♥♥♥ surprise, you will repeat the whole game again with slightly harder opponents. Although I appreciate the evolved opponents the idea of repeating the game is annoying WTF moment. I like the first Alan Wake so I continue playing then bam! You will repeat the first chapter thrice! 3 ♥♥♥♥ing times! I gave up and decided to write this review to give the American Nightmare it deserve, A ♥♥♥♥ing NIGHTMARE!! playing MMO with repetitive quests is already annoying but an action-adventure game to have this kind of story is just ♥♥♥♥ed up!! So I cannot recommend this American Nightmare. Play Alan Wake original and just watch a video of the gameplay of AW:AM on youtube, for it will destroy what you love about Alan Wake.

While Alan Wake's strongpoint was it's narrative and storytelling, American Nightmare seemed to think it was the gameplay. Because of that, Alan Wake's American Nightmare is a definite step back from the original, and unless you really liked the combat of Alan Wake, to the extent you'd play a mediocre game just to have a more refined version of said combat, then don't bother with Alan Wake's American Nightmare.

The game take place at an indeterminate time after Alan's been stuck in Cauldron Lake, he escapes by rewriting reality, and he ends up in Night Springs. It turns out Alan is some "Champion of Light", trying to defeat the "Herald of Darkness"... who the hell wrote this ♥♥♥♥? This isn't Alan Wake, it's some weird pseudo-fantasy cliched bullcrap. Anyway, he's looking for his doppleganger, Mr Scratch, who is the Herald of Darkness, and seeks to destroy him. Along they way he meets secondary characters who seems to completely oblivious to everything that's happening, and just sorta wait for ♥♥♥♥ to go wrong.

Eventually they do, and Alan goes to a new version of reality where he didn't ♥♥♥♥ up. Rinse and repeat a few times until Fin. The story is uninteresting and unnessarily padded, with the same sequence of events happening 3 times over. The villain is just a ♥♥♥♥ version of Alan Wake. He's not even like some evil destroyer of worlds, or some Orange/Blue Morality Nethergod or something; he's just slightly more dickish Alan Wake.

Aside from the ♥♥♥♥ty plot, combat in the game has been changed a bit. It features more weapons and noticebly faster than in the original game. While the combat is more enjoyable, it still doesn't make up for the bad narrative.

If you liked Alan Wake (at least for the reasons I did), then skip this one, it's not worth your time or your money.

Alan Wake's American Nightmare Review.

There's not a lot I can say about the story without giving it away, but it wasn't as gripping as the first one. I was definitely less impressed with the overall game. It seemed cobbled together, with a lot less exploration and character development. It does smoothly resume the story however, it's just not as good. Alan is stuck in a time loop that repeats itself 3 times throughout the game. There's only 3 maps in the game. The motel, the observatory, and the drive in cinema. I was disappointed by this, as I was hoping for the continuous exploration like the first game. There were no driveable vehicles, and a lot less running through the woods to get to the next area. It's all narrated and way less decision making.

There's still the "Night Springs" TV show, but there's also Alan's... doppelganger that makes dramatic appearances on the TV. There's also still the same Pat Maine slowly revealing the story through the radio. There's a lot less dialogue and interactions Alan has with other characters.

The game has a few combat tweaks, like the default unboosted flashlight doesn't harm the Taken. I had to boost it constantly but it recharges almost instantly making it almost more effective. I think I used 1 battery the whole game. There's a few more weapons but I still kept the pistol until I could get the double barrel sawed-off, which mows down almost any Taken in 1 shot. There's a few more types of Taken as well, and they switch up all the time. I think my favorite was the crow guys, if you hit them with the light they jump into the air and turn into a murder of crows until they coalesce back into the human form. Then I just blew them away with the sawed-off. The combat is far less challenging because every time a Taken spawns the camera pans to it, where as before Taken would spawn silently and just throw a hammer outta nowhere, or come running outta the woods with no warning.

The ending was so lame. I was pretty disappointed since I saw it coming from the first time loop. It was nice to finish the game and know that the Alan Wake series closes here.

Alan Wake: 6.2
Alan Wake's American Nightmare: 4.6

"Just go get that battery."

I wasn't impressed by Alan Wake and decided to give this one a chance. But AW: American Nightmare doesn't deserve a chance. It's utterly unscary just like it's predecessor. Story is not engaging, chars aren't interesting, goals are boring... You just restart another generator and than another enemy wave comes at your a.s.s. The only good thing about this game is gunplay - flashlight+weapons technique works nicely. But it's not enough to make it a worthwhile experience. Leave it be - the game is a nightmare.

Uhh, this has no place in the Alan Wake Storyline. There's no place to put this. Plus, Alan is way too calm about this "darkness monsters are trying to bash in my face" thing. What's with the darkness monsters, anyway? Didn't we do away with them when we crippled the Dark Presence?

- An Alan Wake Shoot em' up. No.
- Alan is really strong, and the weapons are ridiculously overpowered.
- Story is two seconds long.
- Story literally loops back onto itself three times.
- Ooh, I'm your evil darkness doppelganger!
- Enemies are cartoonish, not remotely scary.
- Wait, this is "Return"? Oh, lawd, please no.

+ Story doesn't feel too much like it's repeating itself.
+ Thank Jeebus there's a minimap on this one.
+ Fewer collectible item sets.

Disappointing! I bought this after i finished Alan Wake, and confused with the ending, i was hoping this game would shed some light. I was sad to see it did not. The plot for this one is confusing, and you basically just run around trying to defeat Mr.Scratch. >.< 1/10.

Prendete Alan Wake, decurtatelo della trama, stravolgendo gli equilibri tra sceneggiatura e meccaniche di gioco: ora sono queste ultime ad avere priorità, eppure rimane un piacere giocarlo.

Praticamente 3 livelli da rigiocare 3 volte, ovvero come risparmiare sul level design e fare i miliardi.

E' uno spin-off di discreta fattura, che riprende, seppur con minor enfasi, le caratteristiche di Alan Wake, come le musiche azzeccate, l’atmosfera affascinante e la narrazione appassionante, aggiungendo qualche miglioria a livello grafico, qualche arma in più ed altri elementi secondari.
Nonostante il rapporto qualità-prezzo sia ineccepibile e l’acquisto sia caldamente consigliato, il costante riciclo delle ambientazioni che portano il giocatore a muoversi all’interno degli stessi spazi, l’enfatizzazione dei combattimenti che denotano una maggiore semplicità e il mancato doppiaggio in italiano, lo allontanano dalla qualità eccellente del capostipite.
Avrei preferito qualcosa che ricalcasse gli episodi introdotti via DLC in Alan Wake, decisamente più accattivanti ed ammalianti.

Alan Wake's american nightmare voto 6/10
punto di forza : il predecessore
punto debole : i livelli e l'ambientazione
difficoltà medio/facile

Alan Wake's American Nightmare è il "seguito" del ben noto Alan Wake. in realtà gli sviluppatori hanno dichiarato che più che un seguito è da considerarsi uno spin-off della saga.
poichè le meccaniche di gioco sono molto simili al precedente capitolo sarà impossibile non fare dei paragoni.
in realtà ha ben poco in comune col suo predecessore, sembra infatti che gli sviluppatori abbiano ribaltato tutto:
1)l'ambientazione è adesso il deserto,non fraintendetemi,sono felice di non avere trovato altri boschi, ma le nuove ambientazioni non riescono comunque a reggere il confronto con le precedenti, a volte le ho anche trovate banali e vuote.
2)i combattimenti sono stati migliorati, avremo a disposizione inoltre più munizioni, ed hanno differenziato il numero di nemici
che potremo incontrare,per esempio dei nemici potranno trasformarsi in uno stormo di corvi per volare da un'altra parte, mentre altri vi lanceranno delle specie di
granate.Nulla di eccezionale, ma è pur sempre un inizio.
3)ATTENZIONE SPOILER. ma cosa diavolo avevano in mente quando hanno sviluppato la trama e i livelli?
in breve: il nostro eroe dovrà fare delle cose in tre scenari differenti(la stazione di servizio,l'osservatorio e il drive-in),
arrivato per la prima volta al drive-in verrà rispedito indietro nel tempo, e dovrà fare più o meno le stesse cose di prima(cambierà qualche dialogo e poco altro),
questo per ben tre volte, quindi non solo ho trovato le ambientazioni bruttine, ma sono pure solo tre che a ruota devi per forza sorbire tre volte.Credetemi è stato assolutamente NOIOSO.
4)hanno aggiunto una discreta modalità sopravvivenza arcade, peccato però che anche se i combattimenti sono migliorati risultino comunque noiosi dopo poco tempo.mi sarebbe piaciuta una modalità arcade cooperativa piuttosto, sarebbe una bella idea per il futuro.

in generale sembra che abbiano puntato molto sulla giocabilità, infatti i combattimenti e le sparatorie sono più frequenti ed anche più divertenti.
alcuni hanno definito il primo ispirato a King, e il secondo ispirato a Tarantino, e sono assolutamente dacccordo.
porta un poco avanti la storia di Wake e per questo vale la pena giocarlo, ma per il resto è un gioco da prendere praticamente solo se in offertissima.
Non riesce a trascinare come il primo purtroppo.
