Alan Wake is a wonderful game. It looks phenomenal out, the presentation is prepared to perfection and the music is great. It tells a story within games are unparalleled and you from start to finish on the edge of your seat. The actual gameplay is fun and entertaining, but pales into insignificance alongside the brilliant storytelling. The question is: how do you judge a game that really good gameplay between a really great movie is shown? Goed of heel goed? Good or very good? It is a question we Alan Wake not quite like to pay, but that certainly is relevant when there are games do manage such an excellent story for a significant part through the game itself across.
