its a very good game for anyone who likes a good story line. if you didnt like it because of the game play then obviously you didnt play enough to get used to it. its a third person over the shoulder view which most games don't have. good for any action/horro fans.
pros: very good story line - good game play - works well with over the shoulder view - makes you want to keep playing
cons: camera angel every now and then gets twitchy
amazing game im shocked it only has an 8.8 rating. don't give this a bad rating just because youre bad at the game its honestly one of the best games i have ever played in a long time and ive played hundreds from xbox 360 - ps3 - wii. if you like the game just as much as i do then dont forget may 25th the book alan wake comes out.
Alan Wake is one of those few games that leaves you thinking about it long after you have finished it. The beginning is weak, but as you carry on in the game, it begins to drag you into its dark world. You are Alan Wake, a writer suffering from writers block, he has come to Bright Falls to break his writers block. Instead he becomes trapped in a story that he doesnt remember writing and to make things worse his wife is missing. He goes a journey that will take to the very heart of evil. This game left me wanting more and I can't wait for the DLC and the Sequel (those who beat the game and watched the credits know what Remedy told us at the end of the credits). I bought the Limited Edition, this isnt a rental its a must buy for any gamer!
It took me 10 hours to beat normal
There are 3 modes: Normal, Hard, and Nightmare.
50 Achievements worth 1000G
I got 495 on my first play through on normal.
I plan to work my way up to Nightmare.
Replay Value; HIGH
Now I have wanted this game for a while; but I never thought it would be this great! I am a big fan of the mystery games, so this one was a game I couldn't wait for! Now for the graphics: 9/10... They are AWESOME! About the same as MW2. Gameplay: 9/10... You can move your flashlight around and it will actuly let you see. Without your flashlight you could not see very well at all! You can have Alan be on the right of your screen or the left. But the only Cons are: If you in a building you can only go into certen rooms. (Others are locked) And I would have very much liked to see a free roam option in the game. (Of course I have not beat it yet so lets keep our fingers crossed!)
Some of you might be shocked like I was when I first played it. This game is kind of "harsh" for a T rated game isn't it? Well yes, sort of. Over all this game is a great game! I would recomend getting it. My rating I give it is about a... 9.5/10... But you REALLY should be a Teen or older if you are getting this game. Thanks!
