GamesRadar: Alan Wake Review

Like slipping in and out of a nightmare, Alan Wake is a mixed experience. You'll adore the game's well-written characters and grow obsessed with the deeply intellectual story, but thanks to repetitive action and uninspired levels, reaching the end and solving the mystery can sometimes prove a bit tedious.

Why? Its still a good score?

LordMarius3030d ago (Edited 3030d ago )

i'm dumbfounded

I could have swear people were saying this was going to be GOTY, what happened?

darkmurder3030d ago

People also said Killzone 2 was going to be, just because people say it is going to be GOTY doesn't mean it will be. This game fills in a niche market and since when is 8/10 a bad score? Its a good game, not great but good! Combine this with the other scores where its from 8-9 and you know its a solid title.

Except Killzone 2 did got the GOTY award from many sites in the FPS category.

Anyway, Alan Wake is an okay game. Not AAA ot GOTY material, but still okay.

for hype machine of ms,i did say pictures will be touched up,360 fanboys (not gamers) really believed after 5 years the 360 suddenlly transformed into the xbox 720,its no bad thing that the 360 isnt as powerful as the ps3 it still has great games,but falling for ms press shots again is plain ridiculous,the hysteria of best visuals this gen,as good As u2 now look very silly

well I just watched the gametrailers review and I still say the game looks just as good as anything on consoles or better. That doesn't make me a fanboy, the game just looks superb with its atmosphere. It seems there are some other flaws that really held AW back from recieving tons of high 9's, but overall its a great game none the less. 360 fan's like me should be excited, I can't wait to pick it up.

What a the game NOT ruin the experience...

LinuxGuru3030d ago

Interesting, wasn't this game supposed to blow everything else out of the water? So far, the only things that impress me about Alan Wake is the lighting (which is fantastic) and the characters.

another ordinary great game. the hype is there... and then after a while there'll come another great game...

If it weren't for the immense hype, 5 year dev cycle and the x360 hardware. This game would have been just fine.
