Alan Wake First Thoughts

| Thursday, May 20, 2010

A lot of buzz has been surrounding the release of Alan Wake for the Xbox 360 and some people question is the hype deserving. Here is some background for those who are not familiar with the plot. Basically Alan Wake and his wife go to Bright Walls to retreat away the busy city life, while he is there his life is kidnapped and of course he must rescue her. I will not go into the plot but so deep to avoid spoilers. The environments in Alan Wake are incredible and the game has a eerie feeling to it making game play very spooky. The plot is addictive and very suspenseful. The game play is very fresh and original, Alan Wake must use light to strip his opponents of "darkness" before he can began to attack, or otherwise Wake's attacks has no effects on his enemies. Some of the reviews I read for Alan Wake had complaints about the controls there is nothing really wrong with the controls. As of right now I am about 5 hours into the total game and their have been reports stating the Alan Wake is 12 - 15 hours long, to some Alan Wake is not worth the price tag because it has NO online game play. On the other hand there will be expansions to the game this summer to make it longer. Below I have posted some videos of the game play, the final thoughts of Alan Wake will be posted upon completion of the game.
