The Signal and The Writer add to an already rich game: a surreal, poetic journey through a barely sane dreamscape, while giving the story a little more of a conclusion, and providing a stepping stone into a potential sequel. Many will find the ending unsatisfying, though just as many will be delighted at the opportunity to piece together the puzzle themselves. The final moments will either be a contrived cop-out or emotional crescendo depending on the player. Alan Wake is a story to be read on multiple levels, to be dissected and considered. The Signal and The Writer are great value for money, great fun and are essential for Alan Wake fans.
