Gearslive: When all is said and done, Alan Wake isn’t just a good game with a decent backstory and interesting play mechanics; it’s a great game with one of the most solid stories we’ve seen, with gameplay to match. The way that things are written, you are always wanting to press on, just to find out what happens next—the mark of any good fictional novel. The characters all fit, the world and scenery work perfectly, and the combat is intuitive, fun, and sometimes, straight up intense. We highly recommend the game, and truth be told, we wouldn’t mind a little more. Luckily, Remedy is already hard at work on adding in more episodes through DLC.
