I love alan wake...but i hope that a new one would use a more modern engine.
Alan Wake has great graphics except the facial animation were a bit below par. Now if Remedy could combine their environmental graphics along with L.A Noire mo-cap, it could rival the best of the PS3 exclusives...
Obviously you haven't play PS3 exclusives. Sure Alan Wake looks great, i've played it. But the game just looks... flat compared to PS3 exclusives, Best way I cant put it lol
@Headquarters I have a playstation 3 and occasionally play the exclusives and I can tell you that Alan Wake is up there with the best. Perhaps some sony exclusives have marginally better graphics but it is not nearly as much of an improvement as all you sony lovers make it up to be.
Well I own both a PS3 & a Xbox. And I probably prefer my PS3 altogether as a console. However Alan Wake is my favourite 360 single player experience. And it looks fantastic. The atmosphere and the lighting effects are especially good.
Alan Wake (1) was 540p if only they push the visuals up to 720p , it would be awesome. thats why alan wake didnt look sharp.
@Therealspy03 Get your own avatar! And no, it would be a waste to not utilize the Alan Wake engine on another game.
How can Alan Wake 2 seem likely when the devs just stated that the next Alan Wake game won't be Alan Wake 2? Research much before you write?
but it is an Alan Wake game, maybe its a prequel or something.
Don't get me wrong, I thought Alan Wake was a great game. But because of its 5 year costly development combined with its less than impressive sales, I'm delighted (but surprised) that MS have decided to fund an exclusive sequel...lets just say that if Activision owned the rights to the IP, AW would cease to exist.
Deserves a sequel because of the way microsoft treated the game, there was no advertising and it released on the same day as red dead so it had no chance. Microsoft screwed up big time with AW.
I'm intrested in this game.
Hope the sequel is as good or better than the original! Either way I can't wait!!
I really LOVE this IP!
Love this game, cant wait for the Blu-Ray version
lol, don't ever change josephayal.
I hope they do this was the best sp game of last year for me. It was something different esp for the 360. I just hope if this is true that MS really push it and people go and pick this game up as it deserves better sales than it got.
I seriously hope this becomes multiplatform.
i don't care about the general recpetion of the game. i enjoyed playing Alan Wake and will defenitely play a second.
If you played all the DLC from the first game you know the second game is Alan Wake The Return. Alan Wake was one of my favorite games last year. I know it really picked up sales after it won so many awards, especially Time Magazines GOTY. So a new IP that went up against Red Dead on release date but still managed to sell over a million. Not too shabby. I can see a sequel being a real masterpiece. Often sequels make a series. Look at Uncharted or Sonic. Those games were fair in their own right, but not nearly as good as their sequels. Cant wait for E3!
Hopefully they add some gameplay elements this time. And don't warn you with a slowed down shot every time a the taken appear.
