Alan Wake's American Nightmare ist halt als DLC oder Add-on anzusehen und nicht mit dem Hauptspiel zu vergleichen. Die Spielzeit ist hier viel kürzer und auch sonst einfacher gehalten. Vieles wiederholt sich. Trotzdem ist aber zu erwähnen, daß die Atmosphäre, Grafik und Sound auch hier hervorragend sind.



Alan Wake's American Nightmare ist für alle Horrorfans dennoch eine Kaufempfehlung wert.

Alan Wake´s American Nightmare ist kein vollwertiges Spiel, sondern bloß ein längerer DLC, den man auch ohne das Hauptspiel spielen kann, das schon mal im Vorraus. Also für alle die davon einen vollwertigen Nachfolger erwarten, hier schonmal die Warnung.

Grafisch und Gameplaytechnisch bleibt im Grunde alles beim Alten, das Design ist vom idyllischen Vorstadtgrusel, zum Arizona-Wüsten-Kleinstadtszenario ala "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" gewechselt, aber sonst bleibt alles beim wie gehabt: Gegner anleuchten, Gegner erschießen, rumlatschen. Das Funktioniert auch hier wieder hervorragend, vorallem dank der neuen Gegnertypen und dem (im Vergleich zum Vorgänger) weit vergrößertem Waffenarsenal.

Die Story ist ebenfalls wieder hervorragend, wenn auch längst nicht auf dem selben Level wie beim Hauptspiel, was schon allein wegen dem vielen Backtracking (im Grunde spielt man drei mal das selbe Spiele, mit kleineren Abweichungen) etwas ermüdend werden kann, weshalb das Spiel mehr was für zwischendurch, als mittendrin ist.

Zur Story sei nur gesagt das sich Alan, aus unbekannten Umständen, in einer Folge von Night Springs befindet und dort auf seinen gegenteiligen Doppelgänger, Mr. Scratch trifft. (Mr. Scratch ist meiner Meinung nach ein noch krankerer Gegenspieler als der Joker aus der Arkham Reihe)

Da das Spiel extra im Stile einer B-Movie-Horror-Ballerei gestaltet ist (es gibt diesmal sogar einen Arcade Modus) und das Backtracking dank Zeitschleifenthematik irgendwie Sinn macht, ist es sowohl für alan Wake Fans empfehlenswert, als auch für Leute die mit dem Hauptspiel vielleicht nichts anfangen konnten. Allerdings sind Vorkenntnisse zur Hauptstory empfehlenswert, weil man sonst die vielen hintergrundinfos nicht versteht, die noch etwas mehr Licht in die Geschichte des Schriftstellers bringen)

Alan Wake's American Nightmare
beschränkt sich auf's wesentlichste und zwar genau wie schon in Alan Wake auf den Kampf zwischen dem Meister des Lichts a.k.a Alan Wake und der Dunkelheit. Die Geschichte ist dieses Mal nicht ganz so spannend und lässt sich schnell zusammen fassen, auch fehlen interessante Charaktere.. generell ist Alan Wake's American Nightmare kurz und klein. Man besucht im Grunde im ganzen Spielverlauf nur drei verschiedene Orte und Cut Szenes sind rar. Wer den Titel also nur für die Geschichte spielen will sollte es sich drei Mal überlegen und Vllt. lieber mit dem offenen Ende des Hauptspiels leben, auch wenn man noch einige Hintergrund Informationen erfährt. Wer sich allerdings auf etwas Neues einlassen kann und möchte sollte unbedingt zugreifen! :) Denn das Gameplay, angereichert mit ein paar neuen fiesen Kreaturen und ner Handvoll neuer Wummen und wie schon aus dem Hauptspiel gewohnt guten Tracks sorgte zumindest bei mir für ne Menge Spaß.
Im Arcade Modus kann man sich neben dem Story Mode dann noch richtig austoben.
Von mir trotz des deutlich geringeren Umfangs also auch hier eine Empfehlung. :)

Ich muss zugeben, dass mit auch American Nightmare gut gefallen hat. Als Stand-Alone-Erweiterung zum Sparpreis kann sich der Titel sehen lassen. Allerdings bietet American Nightmare nur wenig Neues und ist mit einer Spielzeit von vier Stunden auch nicht gerade lang. Hoffentlich kommt da noch mehr von Remedy, die Alan Wake-Reihe verdient einen vollwertigen Abschluss.

Wenn man den ersten Teil gespielt hat, ist die Story des zweiten Teils ehr suboptimal. Im Storymodus gibt es nicht viel zu erledigen aber dafür darf man Dank einer "Zeitschleife" viele Sachen 3 mal machen mit leichten Abweicheungen wie z.B. anderee Weg, andere Gegener, aber selber Ort, Naja mit so einer Zeitschleife kann man ein Spiel auch künstlich verlängern. Der Arce-Modus ist reine Ballerei.

Wer jetzt zuerst den zweiten Teil spielt sollte sich nicht davon abschrecken lassen. Der erste Teil ist einfach super.

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

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)

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.

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.

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.

I played this and the original Alan Wake. In this one I only played the story mode. The graphics are beautiful, it's easier than the previous one. The story here is quite nice. I wasn't on the edge like the previous one. Maybe because I got used to the setting. But please don't think you'll make 100 hours playing it. I finished it in one day (6 hours). This game and the original one are definitely worth playing if you grab it on an offer.

Can't say much good about this DLC. First off the story has you revisit the same places three times over. I don't care how good your story is (it's not), that just reeks of laziness. And then there is the fact the DLC is laughabily easy and not at all scary compared to the main game. Sorely disappointed. Pick it up cheap if you want to play everything in the franchise, but otherwise I'd not spend money on it.

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.

I liked this game far better than the first. It's way more action intense and really messes with your head a little. I hope the epic saga will continue on... in Night Springs!

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.

What is next for the champion of light?

Alan Wake's American Nightmare is the predecessor to Alan Wake, although not directly it sequel its more of a spin off type thing!

This game unlike Alan Wake is inspired by the television seires The Twighlight Zone and possiblly even the movie groundhog day XD.

Again you play as Alan Wake, the champion of light! 2 years and Alan Wake is still missing! The story again is written and played as in Alan Wake but this time the horror story that comes to life is about Alan Wakes doppleganger, a warped and twisted version of himself known only as Mr. Scratch. As this is Alans own story he must battle though the Arizona desert and rewrite reality to stop his doppleganger from re-entering reality as Alan Wake and to prevent himself from being trapped in the darkness forever!

The story is about stopping your nemesis but how the story progresses is quite different. To defeat Mr. Scratch you must gather the whole storyline (manuscript pages) by revisiting parts of the story Déjà vu and in each instance you will go back in time until you find the correct pieces of the story and join them together, as Mr. Scratch has warped reality he will send you back in time to discourage you from finding the story if that makes sense lol XD

Gameplay is identical to the orignal except for a few new weapons and of course SPIDERS! YES ♥♥♥♥ING TAKEN SPIDERS!

Pros:
-Again Light as a weapon
-Great story has some backstories in it like how Alice and Barry are doing etc etc
-Like its successor distrubing and horrifying
-Narration takes a different approach similar to how it is done in the twilight zone
-The arcade feature is lots of fun :P
-Great looking game

Cons:
-The game is pretty short. a whole universe of American Nightmare would've been good
-Again facial animations lol
-Gameplay is pretty linear right at the start and the fact you have to revisit parts of the game although cool can be boring!

But a crtitical success like its successor, ticks all my boxes! 10 Foxes out of 10 foxes!
