4.0 out of 5 stars The multiplayer is good..., 19 Nov. 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a review for the multiplayer part of the game ( I haven't finished the single player part yet). The multiplayer feels quite original to play , and anyone who has played and liked the predator modes in the previous two games I reckon shall enjoy this part.
It consists of the Joker's team vs Bane's team (3 in each) vs Batman and Robin. The villains are competing for control of positions on the map and annihilation of the opposing villain team and their reserves (extra lives), whilst the heroes are attempting to raise their intimidation levels (through take-downs of the villains) to the limit at which both villain teams disperse.
All the different characters have their own gadgets (this customizable for the villains along with clothing) and playing Batman and Robin works as well (if not better) as the original predator mode, and who plays them is decided by a spinning wheel system made up of players who did not play (and want to) as either of them in the previous round. At about half way through each round the villains have an opportunity for one of their number to play as either the Joker or Bane (depending on the team), by getting to a certain door on the map before the other team does. Hopefully Splash Damage shall add some more multiplayer modes and maps , though this is a good start.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun and original action thriller, 22 April 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Remedy's Xbox Action thriller has made it to the PC. Writer Alan Wake travels to the Bright Falls (a fictional town in a scenic area of the US) with his wife Alice for a holiday. Soon after arriving at their cabin, strange events start to occur leading to the disappearance of Alice. From there Alan must find out what has happened to her. The game mostly takes place at night with some day time periods as part of the story.The graphics are very good and include some eerie special effects.
The gameplay is quite original, involving shining your torch on the enemy to remove their dark shielding and then blasting them with the gun. It plays a little differently to other 3D shooters and indeed Alan Wake is no "super soldier",he does get out of breath and the odds are often against him. Defeating opponents occasionally requires a sense of observation as opposed to frequent shooting. The AI of the enemy is fairly reasonable, for example they shall occasionally try to move around Alan in an attempt to outflank him. Whilst Alan Wake is different to other 3D shooters it can be a bit repetitive at times. Bright Falls is vast and the former humans are not the only enemy, (though they do appear quite a lot). At times it can feel like a bit of a slog getting through various waves of the enemy (each often similiar in form to previous ones) with not many choices as to how to get to the end of each episode. Alan Wake has a good story which keeps you guessing as to its final outcome. The characters are memorable and its TV episode style of each level is a welcome addition. I think it is worth a look, though I'd suggest taking it at a leisurely pace.
