CFD!'s Paul Dronet reviews the XBLA follow-up to last year's Alan Wake:
"American Nightmare finds the titular author traversing the desert landscapes of Arizona and fighting the Taken who populate its darkness within an episode of the original game’s fictional TV show, Night Springs. He is tracking down his doppelganger, Mr. Scratch, a charismatic and sadistic serial killer who plans to assume Alan’s identity in the real world and wreak havoc upon the people dear to him. Alan must attempt to rewrite and correct the story in which he is trapped (along with some damsels in distress) to stop Mr. Scratch for good."
