Hello there, today I’ll be reviewing the “Psychological action thriller” Alan Wake. Let’s start off simple with graphics. Graphical-wise, the game is very nice, very crisp, and very simple. Now let’s talk about general
When first starting the game, it feels like a whole new world and looks very interesting. The game really seems to draw you in. Controls are very nice, and so is the feel of the game. So, you play the first few chapters of the game. You notice that Alan Wake tells a very interesting story. I have to be honest, because after all, this IS a video game review.
The game is just awesome at the beginning, but after playing it for a couple hours, the game seems to become very bland and very predictable. You always know what will happen next. After realizing this, the game loses its thrill-factor. Under no circumstance, however, does the game become bad. This game still provides much entertainment and is a true challenge on the harder difficulties, especially on “nightmare difficulty.”
Along the way, you are collecting manuscript pages for the book Alan doesn’t even remember writing. Each manuscript page unfolds a little bit more of the story of Alan Wake. Some pages cannot be unlocked unless you are playing on nightmare difficulty, where all pages are available. While playing the game, you run into some memorable characters, such as Barry Wheeler, Alan’s agent. Either way, some exiting stuff happens along the way. You will find yourself in fights that you have no hope of winning, and that’s one of the things that makes this game quite good. This can also make the game frustrating, so if you are easily frustrated by difficult situations, Alan Wake isn’t for you.
If I can make a good recommendation, I’d say go and buy it if you were planning to, because it is a good game and should be played by gamers in general. If your having trouble, just switch to normal or easy difficulty. Whatever difficulty you use, the game still maintains its awesomeness. Go buy Alan Wake Today!
