Features

  • Intense psychological thriller: Alan Wake delivers a deeply psychological and finely crafted plot that raises the bar for storytelling in video games. The riveting story of Alan Wake is propelled by a movie-like atmosphere, compelling situations, memorable characters, and real-time pacing. Remedy has a record of creating and developing games with unique cinematic presentation and exceptionally high production values. Preorder Alan Wake today to obtain your Exclusive Bonus

  • Light as a combat element: As Wake journeys deeper into the mystery of Bright Falls, the shadows close in around him. When darkness descends, light becomes his only ally as he fights his way to daybreak. This poses a severe problem for Alan Wake since his enemies seemingly gain strength from the shadows, and before long, light itself becomes his greatest ally. Players must skillfully combine their use of light with more conventional weapons to stand a chance.

  • Realistic, interactive environment: Set in the town of Bright Falls, the hyper-detailed environments of the Pacific Northwest play an important role, as even the change in daylight and weather will profoundly affect the characters and enemies in Alan Wake. The game’s advanced rendering engine provides amazingly realistic environments that bring this world to detailed life–from the lush forest of evergreen trees to the quaint small-town buildings and streets. The world of Alan Wake is alive and real.

  • Episodic narrative: The mission-based structure of Alan Wake creates an episodic narrative similar to a deeply structured dramatic television series, such as LOST, Twin Peaks and X-Files. As the episodes progress, gameplay evolves to introduce new elements and characters, escalating the level of threat and action in the game.

      awesome 4/20/2013

      When approaching Alan Wake I wasn't really sure what to expect. I have always been a huge survival horror fan. I didn't know too much about Alan Wake but I decided to give it a shot anyways. Boy was I surprised. This game turned out to be a jewel. Alan Wake has so much atmosphere you could bottle it up and sell it out of a soda machine in the game.

      Fun To Play 3/3/2013

      This game is well made and is fun to play but here is the thing its basically modern warfare 2 just with a few changes and a different campaign. Granted some of the changes are very nice and make it a fun game the fact that its not that different makes it a little disappointing. Over all i would recommend this product, It is fun just not what a lot of people were hoping for.

      This Horror Fan is Satisfied 1/11/2013

      The game is more brain usage than shoot them up. I enjoyed playing this game and I'm 59. I don't enjoy the blow up everything games. This game tells a story and is alot more then just running around shooting everything. As far as I'm concerned it's one of the best video games I ever played.

      HELPFUL?: Yes No

      Very underrated game. 9/28/2011

      Alan Wake is quite a different game than what you would expect for something billed as a big blockbuster exclusive. Developed by Remedy, the same folks behind the first two Max Payne games, this title retains that former games' creepy pseudo mythology creepyness in the background. In the foreground is a very capable third person action game. The combat especially is not your run of the mill shoot all other things type of game. It really makes you feel vulnerable and not very powerful.

      HELPFUL?: Yes No

      Scared 11/29/2010
      J.Sullivan from Fort Worth, TX  

      I was legitimately scared while playing this game. It is such an awesome new thriller. It was excellent crafted, unlike the run of the mill sci fi action games out there. You really get into this game. Each chapter takes about an hour plus.

      HELPFUL?: Yes No

      A customer from TX  

      Alan Wake makes you feel like you're the protagonist for this psychological thriller and keeps you on the edge of your seat till the very end...
