My review of Alan Wake's American Nightmare will be based on 4 categories: Performance, Gameplay, Graphics, and Story. As a summary, Alan Wake's American Nightmare is an
arcade spin-off that's more action-focused and varied than its predecessor in terms of gameplay. For the currrent price, I'd say that this is a must buy for fans of Alan Wake but newcomers may want to wait for a sale or even skip the game entirely because of its incoherent plot and repetitive gameplay.

Performance
The PC port of this game was handled by Nitro Games (who also ported Alan Wake to PC) so performance really shouldn't be surprising considering that the first game was optimized as heck.
Performance on a FX-6300 processor, R9 270 GPU, and 8 GB of RAM in a 1080p resolution at ultra settings yields an average of 50 FPS.

Graphics options available:

No bugs or crashes experienced during playthroughs however be wary that no game is bug-free. If by chance you do encounter some bugs and crashes, please visit this page for a list of possible fixes.

Gameplay
American Nightmare is basically Alan Wake in an arcade form with gameplay that is very simple and fitting for this type of game. The mechanics are very much the same; they just added a whole lot of tweaks like new automatic guns, a minimap that shows you where manuscript pages and points of interests are, and the very welcome improvement to Alan's lungs and legs as he can now dash for more than 2 minutes with an added bonus of a faster running speed. It's repetitive, tedious, and lacks challenge but for an arcade title, you really don't need all the fancy stuff that AAA games have and sometimes, lesser is better. It just goes to show how much tweaking the first game needs if its combat transitions very well to an acrade title. There's some minor reworks as well like how light only affects the taken if you focus it and the faster shield burning. Remedy added this unique feature where you can unlock chests containing powerful guns only if you meet the required number of manuscript pages that you have on person. It's not needed to complete the game, it's not forced, but it's a very good incentive for those who like to go around and collect all the collectibles that they can find.

Graphics
Aside from a new shader and yellowish filter, American Nightmare features a more varied set of locations than the first game; instead of trudging through miles of vegetation and old, creaky industrial buildings, you'll get to walk through a fictional Arizonian desert which includes a roadside motel, an observatory, and a drive-in theater. Though few in number, the constant change of scenery always makes the game feel fresh and interesting. The world even looks more lively than its predecessor because the places that you visit are all functional and traces of civilization still exist. Alan Wake would've benefited from a change of scenario once in a while. Aside from that, everything else remains the same, even the emotionless faces and horrible lip-sync.

Story
Buyers beware! If you've played Alan Wake and finished it, then get ready for a story that mocks the sequel-hungry fans as it leaves you with a happy and satisfying ending - only to remember that this was just a spin-off game (yes, that's how good American Nightmare's story is). If you're a newcomer, then don't even bother with buying this game as the plot and the events that are happening will just make you uninstall the game after the first 10 minutes of playing. Being a spin-off, I was very surprised at how well Sam Lake created the story for this game. In fact, it was very well done that, as stated above, I even forgot that this was a spin-off in the first place. I thought that the events that are happening was a direct continuation of the cliffhanger ending in Alan Wake. The reason why it was very believable was because they took every question that fans had and played with the unknown character, Mr. Scratch, from the first game then fleshed him out while giving him a goal that's so believable in Alan Wake's world. Alan journeys through a world that is very different from the first game yet contains all of its story while cleverly masking the seams and cracks so the light can't pass through. Very clever, very amazing, and I personally can't wait for more.


And there you have it.

I don't understand why this game is so highly rated. The game is repetitive (you basically have to replay the game 3x as part of the story), and the voice acting and writing are horrible. Seriously, isn't Alan Wake supposed to be a writer? The dialogue in this game is laughably bad. The story is very weak, and doesn't add much to the original. The atmosphere of this game isn't anything like Alan Wake. The original had plenty of moments keeping you on the edge of your seat; this one isn't frightening at all. For how good Alan Wake was, this one is that bad. Save your time and money and do not get this game.

If you liked Alan Wake you may or may not like American Nightmare. The game was okay, had an intresting plot, tons more weapons, spiders, taken that look even worse than in Alan Wake etc. American Nightmare unlike the first game is not a survival horror game, its more an action based game. The plot takes place in the popular tv show "Night Springs" in an epsode written by Alan himself were the champion of light (Alan) must defeat the herald of darkness (His Evil Twin Mr Scratch). The game takes place in three places: The Motel/Rest Stop, The Observatory and The Drive-in Theater and upon reaching the end of the Drive-in Theater Mr Scratch sends Alan back to the start meaning you have to play through the game again with small differences, this happens twice, in other words, there are Three Areas and Three time loops. The third loop adds the giant, long story short they're scary. In my opinion the game was mostly good but I didn't like the weapon unlock system because they required pages which I sucked at finding. I also didn't like where the game was set and I would take Bright Falls over this. Also spiders.

Alan Wake's American Nightmare is a nice addition to its predecessor. I originally played Alan Wake on the X360 and was not very fond of the story. Now that I have access to American Nightmare, I figured I should try it out. I was actually happy with how simple the story was in this one. Gameplay is still as tense as before although it is nothing to write home about. Despite my thumbs up, I wouldn't recommend buying it at full price.

Remember that the only American Nightmare is... No diet soda with 1lb cheeseburger.
