Alan Wake 2: Exclusive Hands-On Preview - IGN

IGN First : Alan Wake 2 is a radical sequel that looks brave enough to conquer the shadows of survival horror.

It looks boring if you ask me.

Sonic188179d ago (Edited 79d ago )

I hope not. I just finished a few boring games recently.

Ashunderfire8679d ago

Too early to judge man. It looks like it plays like Resident Evil 4.

Tapani79d ago

I disagree, this looks very promising.

I also respect how they put a lot of Finnish stuff in it. A studio that is so deeply rooted in one country and culture should play to their strengths and they found a very interesting artistic way to do it by having a set up in the US but based on a Finnish village/culture/settlers.

My PC is ready for this game. I hope it's good

I'm half way playing Alan Wake on ps5 for the first time and I love it. can't wait for this to come out. Not happy with no Physical release :( but I will get this as a one off.

Race swapping isn't brave...it breaks lore and immersion.

That said I love remedy games

Of course they had to make the main character black and woman. They need that social score.

should've gone gender-neutral

I see why this never gained that huge of a fan base. I never realized this was a horror game.

You know you had a very rigorously competitive year with plenty of variety in opinion when neither Wonder (#7 on this list) nor Tears of the Kingdom (#4) are in the top 3.

Personally, I really enjoyed SMB Wonder and it's my personal GOTY, but my point is that this year was insane for games.

I would have played BG3 and Alan Wake 2 day 1 if they didn’t go digital only at launch. I have BG3 ordered so I’ll play it when it releases physically for PS5 but Alan Wake 2 I may end up waiting for a long time since they haven’t announced a physical copy yet that I know of.

monkey6024h ago

I completely mirror those sentiments. I havent played either yet and I cant wait to either but holding on for physical or a decent sale price to go digital

Alan Wake doesn’t have the greatest combat but the tlc put into it is evident. There is definitely nothing like it.

I wouldn’t be opposed to it taking most GOTY awards.

I have yet to play Baldurs Gate 3 or Alan wake but there is no denying 2023 has been a great year for gaming. With that said, my personal favorite game this year is Dave the Diver. Pure Joy.

Alan Wake 2 Review - Duuro Plays

Duuro says: "Alan Wake 2 is undoubtably one of the finest narrative-driven experiences available on any platform currently. Remedy Entertainment has truly outdone themselves in crafting not just a great sequel, but a masterwork of storytelling, atmosphere and gameplay that will surely stand the test of time."
