TechLand | Alan Wake Review

TechLand:

"Man, what happened to the horror game? The latest Silent Hill installments no longer pack the same surreal punch as they did in the past and Tecmo's camera-based Fatal Frame games seem to have permanently faded from view. Sony's Siren game on PS3 a few years back wasn't all bad but failed to stir up much of an audience. The biggest scares of late have been offered in games that cross over into other genres like Dead Space or Bioshock. The genre needs a new standard-bearer. Though it's being billed as a psychological action thriller, Alan Wake may just be the game to make players remember what a good fright feels like. Remedy Entertainment–most famous for the hard-boiled Max Payne shooters–has been cooking up Alan Wake for more than five years. Read on to see if it's worth the wait." (Alan Wake, Xbox 360) 9/10
