FileFront | Alan Wake Review


"It’s been five long, where-the-hell-is-this-game years, but Alan Wake is finally here and it’s a total success. The main joy is the story—a deviously crafted psychological thriller with a relentless pace that keeps you hooked. It’s also a downright gorgeous Xbox 360 game. The game’s lighting effects steal the show, especially when you unload a flashbang or flare gun on a group of shadowy “Taken” in the dark forest. Moments like these treat you to triumphant fireworks displays, which just feel good. To be fair, the game definitely has a few problems—script awkwardness, graphical tears, oversized environments—but in the end Alan Wake is simply a hell of a lot of fun to play." (Alan Wake, Xbox 360) 91/100
