"The seven I'm giving it is a strong one, though. Alan Wake is far from a bad game, but it's certainly a disappointment for me. It's not the playable version of Twin Peaks we were hoping for, but still an atmospheric action game with great graphics. Remedy should get some extra cred for daring to contribute to a nice trend for the gaming medium, where storytelling and atmosphere count as much as explosions, technology and multiplayer modes. It's a good sign. A waking up, if you want."
