Thank Duke Nukem, A Little, For Alan Wake

Alan Wake is not like Heavy Rain, Halo Reach, God of War III, Splinter Cell: Conviction or any of the other big 2010 games that are not named for their star character. That's intentional.

With Alan Wake, we've got a game that was named more like Super Mario Brothers than like Tomb Raider, more like Sonic or Duke Nukem than Resident Evil or Silent Hill. This is the preference of Remedy Entertainment, the development studio that is now on a name-the-game-after-the-hero streak with Alan Wake following their last efforts, the Max Payne games.

The story is too old to be commented.

Remedy needs to start to promote the FACT that this is a TP SHOOTER...yes, there is a story, a good story BUT the vast majority of the time you fight to stay alive...People think this game is a book with a little game play...No one is gonna buy that...80% of this game is player controlled game play...most of it thrilling fire ( light based )survival fights....

INCREDIBLE graphics, sound and story make an AWESOME package...They really missed the " ferry " by not including some co-op in this...4 player co-op, like L4D would of been perfect....

-I definitely agree with that, I just beat the game this morning and it was a blast, best game this year....I find myself wishing I could go online and even just play a 2 player co-op with Berry....but its a helluva single player game so I guess I'm going to play it again to find all the collectibles.

JOY

On my second play thru on hard difficulty...about to start Chapter 4 again...they should of ended on chapter 4 with the whole " doctor " angle...Only have 610 achievements...still need a few...

It's sad to see the game get trashed the way it has...Rockstar moving their launch up from April to the exact same day as AW...M$ could not of liked that...they've seem to have abandon the game...I haven't seen any promo's for it...they should release it on PC...

Regardless...another great game this year...many INCREDIBLE moments I won't soon forget...chk out the Neogaf spoiler threads for some eye opening opinions on the story...Cheers...
