Edge: Alan Wake Review

Ultimately, Alan Wake is every bit as compulsive and satisfying as the fiction on which it riffs, but it also runs the risk of being equally forgettable.

As a franchise, Alan Wake’s future is assured – Remedy is already working on downloadable content and has plans for a sequel – but next time around the action will need to keep pace with the deft plotting.

Scores a little below average, like you'd expect from Edge, but their reviews are at least well written.

Who cares about the number anyway? It's all about the content, because that's what determines whether each individual likes the game anyway.

It's very hard to please this guys.


There's a lot of well polished great games this gen, so no wonder.

Is it, or is it just too easy to please the masses?

I mean that genuinely, I've never known a generation when 10s were handed out so regularly or people complain about 8-9 scores.

Most be hard to be a spouse of an EDGE reviewer.

BeaArthur2987d ago

In college, a 74-76 is a C, which is acceptable. Apparently in this generation it will take at least a B- for most people to look at a game.

Whether this says something about the game reviewers or the game players I don't know. Did people stop playing games that reviewers pegged as "OK" or did reviewers raise the bar with higher numerical reviews of "OK" games?

nobody was ready for this generation, to top it off each 3 Consoles are way different then each other, this is throwing people way off course.
