Alan Wake, the psychological thriller game coming from acclaimed developers Remedy, is a game that really did look like something different. Something that promised new innovations, gorgeous graphics and a very story-driven focus, which certainly sounded exciting when the game was first shown to the public way back in 2006.
Is the game really going to be all that good, or will it be a big disappointment...?
Update [UPDATE] For some reason some people seem to question the fact that Alan Wake is truly dropping the open-world gameplay, yet this has been revealed by Remedy themselves on several occasions after E3 2009. It will still have parts in the game where you can kind of roam around, but it will not be the sort of GTA/Shenmue style gameplay that was originally planned for the game. Additionally, the company have stated that they are putting a stronger emphasis on action to make Alan Wake more of a Remedy game, but this is also disappointing as the game was originally going to be psychological and less about just gunning down "zombies".
