It's not a bad game, but it's also not great. The graphics, sound, and voice acting are all good. The gameplay is fun. But it just feels empty. The story is a little too deep and convoluted, therefore you're not missing much if you don't play Alan Wake first. That being said, it would probably spoil some of the story from Alan Wake.

Anyway, it's like they looked at Alan Wake and said, "Our target demographic likes lots of action, shooting, and sexiness. Just take the first game and add in lots more guns and some hot chicks." With the plentiful guns and ammo, the game is fairly easy. American Nightmare is just a quick, fun little game and it's probably best not to think about it too much.

(based on the story mode, not arcade mode)

A much better experience than the main game, where Alan Wake was very dark and melancholic this took another direction which reminded me a lot of movies by Quentin Tarantino. I struggled with the main game just because I didn't like how dark and stressful it was but this one was just fun all the way through.

More pulp fiction than silent hill, but all the better for it!

American Nightmare would have been better entitled 'Deja Vu You', or 'Today is Tomorrows Yesterday' or rename some characters and title it 'Dead Pete Repeated', or even Ground Hog Night, of course without the burrowing rodents who easily frighten at the sight of their own shadows, which in this case, could have worked in the game because these shadows are not factors in how long a season is going to be but how long you live. Luckily, you are armed with the preferred weapon of mall cops everywhere and a shadows worst nightmare, a flashlight. Yes, forcing your will on those weaker than you with a flashlight has never been more enjoyable, except for in Alan Wake's predecessor game and maybe Knights of the Old Republic.

The best part of the Alan Wake series is the solid game engine it’s built on. American Nightmare runs so smoothly maxed out on my 7 year old processor and the graphics have improved over the prior installment. Though the other exception to the graphics in this game is that some of the characters are portrayed by live actors in cut scenes. They were not bad but it felt like they could have done more with CGI models rather than the actors being filmed on green screens, using CGI backgrounds. It made for bland effects.

The campaign for this sequel seemed like it could have been more of a side mission that would be play throughout different part of the first Alan Wake as you basically play the same 5 levels over and over, with the narrator for The Scary Door helping you relive the nightmare over again. The maps generally stay the same, though some parts of the levels do change slightly but most objects can be found in the same spot every time. For me, I found no replay value in this part of the game once I beat it.

To counter for the repetitiously repetitious campaign repetition, they threw in some wave based shooter survival maps they call 'Arcade Mode.' You get a couple different levels and luckily they are outside of the campaign maps. It gives this a little extra value but after finishing those, American Nightmare now sits in my "completed" archives in the cloud with Alan Wake.

I also found the demented and sick humor included on every tv screen in the game mildly amusing but I quickly lost intrest. They were not as well done, lacked the satire, nor did they have the variety as in the first game.

American Nightmare is great third person shooter outside of the small disappointments. If you like third person shooters it's worth checking out, especially enjoyed the first one.

Overview
Gameplay: Third Person Horror Shooter
Graphics: Amazing! Love this engine!
Sound: Creepy good
Controls: Awesome.
Replayability: Little, I got 7 hours out of it.
Overall: 8/10

All round it's a great game that reminds me of almost any of M. Knight Shyamalan films...

...it ends with disappointment.

It's not fun how strongly not recommended because of many reasons, but the play of the same instead of killing it, the demon is cheating.

Was, extremely, repetitive...
How repetitive? There's only five missions/levels in the game, and you have to play them all sequencially FOUR times over to "slowly progress your memory and defeat the darkness".
By then, I would have just killed myself and let the darkness do whatever the hell it wanted, I'm shocked I beat this game...
1/10

Pros:
+A nice little follow up to the original story. A funny concept, like one of those cheesy movies like you've seen so many times, but can't really remember any.
+A major improvement on original combat system. Now, it's just feels like it have more freedom. Movement have become easier, gunplay is more friendly, overall - feels better now.
+May I add, that PC port is actually worthwhile? Performance is great, didn't even had to thing about it, no problems have occurred during whole playthrough. Controls are pefrect aswell. It's just feels like it was released on PC in a first place.

Cons:
-Well, it's a good old Alan Wake experience. Meaning repetitive combat which drags through whole game. Things got even worse this time - story became repetitive too. You might get bored pretty soon.

Overall ~ It's a nice spin-off. Althrough, it would not cut for full new continuation/conclusion of the series (well, not so much of the series here, but you get the idea). Pick it on sales.

As close to a Twilight Zone video game as you'll get at the moment, staring Kurt Cobain.

This is not as good as the original game it's only about 2 hours and it has you replay the same area over and over, like you play it and aren't strong enough to defeat the boss, so you somehow go back in time but you have all your experience so you can progress further this time, but you still don't know enough to defeat the boss so you have to do it all again. Play the original it's 10 times better and the acting is better.

Where the first in the series had a strong story and weak combat, American Nightmare improved a lot of the combat, but the story got weird... and lazy. You visit three NPCs and do some quests to help them out, and when you're finished with the third... you just visit the same three NPCs in the same order. I can't tell you why I'm so forgiving of Alan Wake's shortcomings, but I guess the bottom line is that I had a lot of fun.

A good variety of weapons and enemies made this enjoyable. Despite the time-loop repetitiveness, it didn't get boring. Some of the dialogue was lame, but overall it was a good addition to the original story. Overall 8/10.

Not nearly as good as the original, but good enough to keep me entertained. Like the former, it has a great story attached to it, and some really good moments related to that. The gameplay falls a bit short though, as well as some of the "scares." It just didn't have the same atmosphere. Fantastic story, but the horror aspect wasn't the same.

It's worth a pick up if you're interested in a conclusion, though!
