How are people liking this!? I mean, it started out pretty decently... until the "game" stopped becoming a game. It is literally a huge, tedious collect-a- thon where you go through the same levels, doing the same stuff that you already did, over and over again. I get it, the whole "plot" is that (SPOILERS) Mr.Wake is stuck in a time loop and is trying to make things right so that he may finally put an end to all the crap happening. Okay, yeah... that's fitting and that's okay. However, it is not okay when your so called "game" consists of (like I've said before) going through the same thing, again and again. It was interesting the first time but now, it's just getting on my nerves. It's boring, repetitive (literally), and just down right unenjoyable to have to go through. It's clear, at least to me that the developers did not put much thought into this and they sure seem to have run out of ideas half way through making this. To make things even worse, there is no variety. They try to switch it up with the tasks but, it's obviously the same ones that you just did but, in a different order... seriously, that's it. However, that's not really the worst thing about this. I think that the worst thing about this so calle "game" is the fights and the enemies. Since when was it okay to surround the player with more than twenty enemies!? Or so, it seems. There are way too many enemies during a fight and to amp up the unfairness even further, they are stronger, faster, very resilliant to your flashlight (or any ligh for that matter), and just close to impossible to kill, dodge, or runaway from. By the time you're even able to pull up your gun, you're surrounded and are being beaten within an inch of your life. You'll be trying your hardest to break the darkness off of them and shoot them but of course, while you're in the middle of doing this, there will be multiple enemies allready surrounding you. Nevermind the fact that your flashlight charge barely lasts long enough to even break the darkness on one enemy! You only have enough charge to even do one enemy at a time which obviously, doesn't work and just slows you down. And then finally, it really does seem like not that much thought was given to the programming. What I mean is that, you'll out run the enemy and be more than safe distance away from him but, it doesn't matter because somehow, he can still hit you. Enemy attacks are also very diffivult to get out of and so, if you get hit even once, then you might as well give up becasue you'll just get stuck into an enemy's combo and killed instantly. There is so much more that I could probablty complain about here but, I've already taken up enough space and I just can't think of anything else at the moment. Besides, trying to think about this game at all is slightly infuriating me. That's the key word here, "infuriating".,, that's all this will ever be, so much to the point where I flat out quit playing.

This game is pretty crappy compared to the real Alan wake game. The only reason to get this would maybe for the story. And there isn't much of story. The graphics are really bad. You can CLEARLY see this is just a simple port from the Xbox 360 and plopped onto the pc port. That wouldn't be so bad. The game play is ok. But this game feels like more of slap on DLC game. It feels like there was different team that worked on this. I had no issues running this on my decent gaming PC.
Asus sabertooth z77 motherboard/ i7 3770k 3.5 GHz / 16 GB ram / 2x 240 SDD / Evga GTX 980 TI SC ACX 2.0 6 GB / WIN 7 Pro 64 bit. The game is just slap together of different parts. The quest are all fetch quest, go point a. Kill bad guys. Go point b. Kill bad guys, go to point c. Kill bad guys. As said the game has no feeling like Alan wake had. It is kinda open world with a lot nothing to do. And the worst part is. There like 3 map you run all around and end up doing same thing for each map like 3 times. That how dull it is. Your doing same thing over and over. Guns are bit better then Alan wake but not that much. You don't need power house to play this crappy Xbox 360 port game. But high end gpu will not make it look any better. The bushes are basically X on ground with 2 line. How about the game play and controls? They are meh. Playable but still feels very lifeless, and I used my PS3 DS3 (dual shock 3 controller)
As gamer ( love last gen consoles and this gen and my PC) I play all types of games, This feels very unfihsed, rushed and slap on port of Xbox 360 onto the PC. As gamer and streamer from twitch. I do not recommend this a buy and give it a very low of 5 of 10. Btw they didn't even get songs/Music from Alan wake. They slap on some pretty crapy music. End turning music right off. It was that bad. And I loved music sound track from Alan wake.
Reply value is not there either. You collect scripts just like in the original Alan wake. Do not buy this. It's worth about $5.00 if even that.
-- quick gameplay score --

Good - better guns and shooting then Alan wake, but not that much better

Bad - repetitive game play, 3 maps that play 3 times, story is weak, average controls, bad graphics, it looks like a Xbox 360 game still in beta. Alan's wake look better on the 360 then this does on PC, lifeless and thrown together of left over parts that didn't use for Alan wake, feel like different team made this, no music license from original Alan wake game. It does not even feel like Alan wake game. Shame on you Remedy Entertainment, you clearly did not care about this and it shows.

Is this what gaming community is coming too? All about making $$$ and giving us bad ports?
And I'm gamer, I remember the Vic 20 computer and Atari 2600 console lol. Still a gamer for both consoles and PC,

This is bad port right from 360 that feels unfinished. Do not buy this. The DLC from Alan wake were way better or go play Alan wake again on 360/PC. If not play it. Get it over this.

Score - 5 of 10.

This game is great and worth your money, even in 2016. It's a mystery-game, and it feels like an interactive movie. It plays in ARIZONA, you will see great landscapes and old western ghost towns. It sometimes feels like an episode of "Ghost Adventures" but even better cause you get to face and eliminate ghosts or shadow people... The Story-mode is a bit cheap, as in the middle of it... you get into a loop and have to play the same stuff over again with minor differences, that is the only thing that sucks. And there is an ARCADE-MODE where you fight the shadow people on places like a an old western cemetery, and old western ghost towns ---> THIS IS EXTREMLY COOL! The story-mode is over fast, but the arcade-mode is worth playing again and again and always fun.

As a writer, I consider the first Alan Wake a great game for its metalinguistic. The story within the story, the topic of what makes a writer a writer, the symbolism of the dark force as the market and the stupid corporate suits who twist and turn the will of an artist to make raw money... The fact that the story unfolded in two fronts (the game and the pages you collected) was specially fascinating.

As a gamer, the first Alan wake was interesting, nothing special beyond the light mechanic but fun on its own way, I ended up annoyed because even in the nightmare, the enemies were merely annoying and there was too much ammo (and with my hoarder mentality from games like Resident Evil and Dead Space, I ended having lots of moments where I left crates of ammo behind because I was full).

But this... unfortunately... feels like a shoddy and lazy filler. There is no story, it's just Alan hunting his doppleganger that it's in his place because story reasons that aren't really explained, the same places are used over and over and over. The city that the developers made with care to look alive and real is replaced by three patches of boring desert with three female characters that are awfully and lazily voiced. The combat has been dumbed down (amazingly), even if there are more guns for you to use, you can only carry two: A main arm, and a sidearm.

"But sir! Alan Wake was supposed to be realistic! The devs said so! You don't see a guy carrying fifteen weapons on his pockets!" Yeah, the devs also said that this game is more action-packed and inspired in americana action series. It's specially grieving since now ammo is universal. Black and red boxes will fill ammo for your side arm, and orange boxes will give ammo for your main weapon. Regardless if you're using an uzi, a nail gun, a rifle or a shotgun. It mostly boils to the fact that they wanted to port it from the consoles to the computers as fast as they could and couldn't be bothered with changing.

And to make things 'worse', the 'realistic' excuse can't be used anymore, since Alan now fights weird enemies that turn into birds or that split in half when shown bright light. While in the first game the dark presence merely took possession of people and objects, now it... mutates them? It gives an excuse that since the antagonist is different, it does different stuff but... again, within the own meta-linguistic, the story gives no reason WHY the antagonist could do it.

Speaking of meta-linguistic, all the pages that explained what happened to npcs and about the story that is unfolding were, again, severely dumbed down. With only three girls to talk to and three scenarios, and with most of the surprises being gone, most pages are just filler, annoying filler, needless filler.

While I didn't had high expectations about this game (with the company acknowledging that they wanted their time to make Alan Wake 2 and didn't wanted to rush things) I at least expected that they would do an enjoyable work, like the DLCs from the first game.

The only way I could reccomend this game is if you liked the combat mechanics from the first Alan Wake and wanted to play a dumbed down, arcade version of it.

Although better graphics, nice (finnaly) 60 Hz, this stand alone expansion lacks the deep story from the fist Alan Wake. Don`t get me wrong - it is truly great EXPANSION with a lot of fun inside, but it is really too short for my taste. Repeating the same maps is not bad for the atmosphere, but I`ll hardly worth replay of whole the game again... What am I saying - the story is brilliant again, makes hint of sequence, but we are still waiting...
Play this game only if you want the story from original Alan Wake expanded.

Verdict: 8/10

Much shootier than it's predecessor, also much shorter. Aside from one huge frame rate drop near the end the game ran, looked and felt smoother. The combat was more fluid and the new enemies and redesigned older ones kept it fresh, the story was a little lackluster and made little regards in the sense of the first game. The time loop idea is nice but did get a little repeatetive after a while. All in all a great cheap spin off but I want a proper sequel! 7/10

Alan Wake's American Nightmare is a good game, if you take into account the price. It only costs $10, before any potential sale, and if you like the original Alan Wake, then it is worth picking up. It's not perfect. There are only three levels that you repeat three times each due to time travel effects. However, there's enough variety in enemies and weapons that it is still worth your money and time.

Alan Wake American Nightmare ist NICHT Alan Wake 2, soviel im Voraus. Trotzdem greift er Gameplay und Athmosphäre vom ersten Teil auf. Obwohl ich sehr viel Spaß damit hatte und ich mehr Stunden als nötig darin versenkt habe, kommt es doch nicht ganz an die Klasse von Alan Wake 1 heran. So ist die Kampagne sehr viel kürzer und auch die Story hätte mehr Klasse zeigen können. Dennoch ein Daumen nach oben, da das Spiel im Gesamten seinen Preis wert war.

Great game! Yes, it's short but this game is not only about the story mode, which is good with a nicer visual, gameplay and UI than it's previous game and it features great soundtrack as usual with previous games from Remedy but it also got an Arcade Action where you have to reach a certain amount of star/points to unlock the next stage. It's fun and has leadersboards etc. You can get around 4/5 with the story mode including collecting all 53 pages and a buch more with the Arcade Action.

Not as great as the original Alan Wake, this game is good for it's price.

Score: 7/10.

Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is the unofficial sequel to the original Alan Wake.

As a fan of the original game, I would highly recommend playing this one after you’ve gone through the original. While it can be played as a standalone, there are many references to characters and stories from the original that help to enrich the story throughout the game.

No longer is Alan Wake in the beautiful rustic backdrop of the pacific northwest, this time he finds himself in the arid deserts of Arizona. With a new western theme, the game remains true to itself by using the same fighting techniques and graphic qualities as the first game, but with slight tweaks and updates that breathe a new life into the game. Collecting manuscripts to unlock weapons, more dialogue options for NPCs, and containers that give max ammo/batteries, for example.

Like the first game, this game has many interesting cut scenes that really add to the story, and the use of real actors is a nice touch as well. Television recordings and radio broadcasts help create a backdrop for the other characters in Alan’s old life, telling their current stories alongside his own.

There is also an Arcade Mode for those who wish to challenge themselves, or for those who just want to bash in some taken skulls.

For a short(er) game, I found the story to be intriguing and unique. However, as I progressed further into the game I felt like the gameplay got a little repetitive and the enemies became more annoying than challenging. The fact that there are only three locations to explore, and that you return to them repeatedly, was disappointing. I was expecting more unique and exciting locations much like the original had offered.

My overall score for the game: 7/10. Recommended for any fans of the series or anyone looking for a short supernatural shooter with both mystery and intrigue.

Alan Wake's American Nightmare * 6/10

Alan Wake's American Nightmare takes place after the events of the original Game and DLCs. Now Alan must confront himself with the Psychotic Mr Scratch, which is trying to bring the darkness out and spread it in the world... Between a murder and a torture.

The premise is solid and the gameplay seems improved, but this is all a mask on a product which seems made with short time, minor inspiration and different purposes. This leads to a "sequel" which is not a sequel (remedy stated this is more like a spinoff), with a lack of atmosphere as in the original title, underdeveloped valid ideas and a gameplay improved and ruined at the same time.
The atmosphere and the gameplay are two elements really close as even though the story takes place always by night in unpopulated areas, with bad or no illumination the locations are not... interesting. They have nothing to do with the charm of Bright Falls, the landscapes, the detailed ambiences. Of course few places or elements are very interesting and detailed, but in its entirety it doesn't even compare with Alan Wake.
The Gameplay doesn't help much. They Have added more weapons unlockable with collectible manuscripts, but the worst part is the Ammo Box... A self regenerating ammo box. This seems like the same evolution that affected the Resident Evil Saga, so you had to survive with few bullets and a bunch of weapons with a character that can barely run, and now Alan Wake can Magically Run three times longer before spitting a lung, he can easily get his hands on an arsenal and the game almost throws ammo box at him... Nope. Even though I'm quite glad Alan Can Run longer (It was really frustrating in the Original Game), and I'm glad they've replaced the six-shoots revolver with an automatic gun... I mean, seriously? A gun with six bullets to be reloaded one by one? Come on... (Don't misunderstand me, I understand it was meant to give the game a Survival gameplay, it's just me hating that kind of guns...).
And once again For both the atmosphere and the gameplay, you will visit three relatively small locations for three times... And every time it will take you less to complete each locations. It took me 4 hours and I was even looking for collectibles...
There's also an arcade mode which is nothing more than an arena with hordes of takensattacking you. I don't even know why I'm bothering to mention it...
The only positive note is the idea behind the game and the character of Mr Scratch. Just look at the TVs you can find around the locations, you'll see his "messages" for Alan. Not to mention the Trailers With Mr Scratch, Ilkka Villi has done a really great interpretation. Too bad the character wasn't developed further than what you see in those videos, which is a serious waste...
The other and last positive note in the game is the music... Nevermind, I eat it back, because it features a new track from the "old Gods of Asgard", from Poets of The Fall (Actually the same Guys XD) and another track, "Club Foot" from Kasabian... And Even though I adore them that's everything good the soundtrack has to offer, which for me is not enough. There's no ominous music, the good tracks are wasted in Climaxing Action scenes which actually lasted 10 seconds on top and there's no credit song worth listening as in the Original Title.
What can I say, Alan Wake's American Nightmare isn't a very bad game, it had some good potential but some gameplay choices altered the spirit of the Original Alan Wake and the game itself looks rushed without any detailed developing in locations, characters or story. So all in all it's not a bad game actually, but a sequel/spinoff, call it whatever you want, which unfortunately doesn't really compare to the Original Alan Wake, and really this is a pity as I really loved it.


+++PROs+++
  • MR SCRATCH. I don't know how to put it. Ilkka Villi Simply did an awesome interpretation of Alan Wake's psychotic doppelganger. Simply awesome.
  • MUSIC. Kasabian's track really fits into the mood of the events and poets of the fall gave a couple of other great tracks.
---CONs---
  • REPETITIVENESS. The game takes place in three locations which you will visit for three times, doing almost the same things. It has a reason for that but it really affects the gameplay as it makes things easier and more predictable.
  • GAMEPLAY. I'm almost sure they planned improvements as increased stamina, more weapons and excessive amount of ammos to give more fun and action to the game, which to me resulted in a more boring gameplay with almost every survival element almost disappeared.
  • SHORT. There is not enough of anything: the game itself lasts 4 hours at best. The awesome interpretation of a stronger villain such as Mr Scratch is simply confined in cutscenes or in the videos seen in the TVs around the maps. The Soundtrack is made of just three tracks and even though they're awesome they're still just three songs. There are not enough bullets... No wait, there actually are all the bullets you want...

Remember after playing this game you may attack your mom who decided to bring you dinner to be nice and to see if you are okay because she heard crying coming from the room. Well you know what mom next time when i am playing alone in the dark and you see me attacking things with a flashlight you should turn on a light to let me know you a re on my side.
Oh and i would buy this game too.

Alan Wake's American Nightmare is a good game, if you take into account the price. It only costs $10, before any potential sale, and if you like the original Alan Wake, then it is worth picking up. It's not perfect. There are only three levels that you repeat three times each due to time travel effects. However, there's enough variety in enemies and weapons that it is still worth your money and time.

In my opinion, the original game had one weak point. The gameplay. It was fine, but got extremely boring if you have to do it for more than 10 minutes without a break (whether the break be a cutscene or whatever) because in itself it's not rewarding at all to kill these dark zombies.
Now American Nightmare makes it so that there's much less story and more gameplay. The little story this game has is extremely boring and dull, so that got completely trashed. Remains the gameplay, which is still the same unrewarding and monotone shadow killing. You can see where this goes. American Nightmare is awful, end of story.

AVISO: Ni te acerques si no has jugado y terminado antes Alan Wake, porque no te vas a enterar de nada. Aparte que si este juego puede interesarte es si te gustó el primero, porque sino no merece la pena.

Alan Wake: American Nightmare es la continuación de Alan Wake. De lo primero que nos damos cuenta es que el juego no viene doblado como sí venía Alan Wake, aunque sí tiene subtítulos en español. Al menos la interpretación del actor es tan buena que merece la pena escuchar la voz original y con los subtítulos podremos apañarnos bien. Repite la fórmula del primer Alan Wake, cambiando los extensos bosques del primero por escenarios más pequeños de Arizona en esta ocasión. Sale perdiendo en cuanto a belleza y extensión de los escenarios, aunque gráficamente luce igual de bien. El control es prácticamente idéntico, añadiendo algo de resistencia en carrera y armas mucho más potentes, dándole mucho más frenetismo a la acción de la que tenía el primero.

Pros:

- El modo arcade añadirá bastante horas de juego, pudiendo comparar nuestras mejores puntuaciones con las de nuestros amigos. Una vez completemos los niveles arcade iremos desbloqueando el nivel pesadilla que añade más dificultad
- La banda sonora aunque es poco extensa es de una gran calidad
- Nos servirá para conocer más de la historia de Alan Wake y poner punto y ¿final? a la misma
- Hay más variedad de enemigos que en Alan Wake
- Más variedad de armas
- Es mucho más frenético que Alan Wake
- Tiene logros Steam
- Tiene sistema de guardado en la nube Steam Guard
- La interpretación del actor que da vida a Alan Wake y al Sr. Chirridos es simplemente sublime

Contras:

- El modo historia es muy corto y repetitivo
- Muy poca variedad de escenarios, sólo tres que tendremos que volver a visitar en varias ocasiones
- No está doblado al español
- No profundiza tanto en la historia como en Alan Wake
- No tiene cromos Steam
- Hay que haber jugado antes a Alan Wake para enterarse de algo de la historia

Conclusión: no lo compres a no ser que esté de oferta o en un bundle (3€ ya me parece caro). Sólo recomendable para los que disfrutaron con Alan Wake.

Magnífico DLC del aclamado Alan Wake, al que precede como secuela indirecta.
Este DLC posee una historia muy interesante, propia de los Alan Wake, pero está más basado en la jugabilidad arcade que en este otro aspecto. Aun así, la historia es muy fluída e intensa, y te hará pensar...que nunca viene mal.
Al ser un DLC no esperes que sea extenso, es mas, es corto (unas 4/5h la historia), pero como ya dije es intenso y se hace algo más largo.
A parte del modo historia posee el modo arcade, en el que debes aguantar hordas de enemigos hasta que amanezca, y conseguir hasta 3 estrellas que te servirán para desbloquear más mapas. Es muy adictivo, y recompensa bastante la corta durabilidad de la campaña.
Respecto a la jugabilidad, como ya he dicho es un título más pensado para este aspecto y se nota mucho la mejora con respecto al juego original.

Resumiento, un título casi obligatorio si te encantó el primer Alan Wake, eso sí, sólo si lo has jugado antes...no entenderás nada si no has jugado un Alan Wake en tu vida.

Nota: 9/10

1-sentence review : a nice side view on the Alan Wake's universe, it doesn't bring anything essential, but the (short) ride is enjoyable.

Pros:
- gameplay wise, it still works well
- atmosphere is well done, although not great like the one from the original Alan Wake
- arcade mode is well done and if you're into it you should spend a couple of hours to beat the normal levels

Cons:
- story doesn't make much sense if you look it from too close
- it's not Alan Wake 2 (not really a con, but it's important to be aware of that, else the game will be a big disappointment)
- it made me feel it'll be hard to do an actual interesting Alan Wake 2 with the state that we were left at end of the n°1 ... :-(
- a bit short on story time (about 5 or 6 hours without rushing) & story content
