5.0 out of 5 stars Best Collector's Edition so far, by far, on the 360, 21 May 2010

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Alan Wake - Limited Edition (Video Game)
For the game itself i'm sure you have all read many positive reviews already and well deserving so because this game is a labor of love and it shows. Instead of focusing on the game i won't to speak about the actual Collector's Limited Edition since this is what's on sale here. This is by far the best C.E. of a game i have bought so far on the Xbox 360! Why? Firstly the quality of the items on offer and the attention to detail is incredible - trust me the official picture floating on the net does not do it justice at all. Inside the typical carton slip there is a superb looking thick book replica which serves as the C.E. case. The case looks and feels excellent and it has the Alan Wake logo on it embossed in silver. It really does look like a proper, old-fashioned hard cover novel! The case opens from the top, as a book, and even this feels really good because it has small magnets which are not visible yet make everything feel solid and smooth. The surprises inside are just as positive. Under the case cover there is an image of the book with a supposed Alan Wake author signature. Within the thick part of the case we find the special bits of this C.E. There is a beautiful hard cover, folding case which contains both the game's soundtrack and a special bonus content DVD. Then there is the fictional novel. This is especially good and the crown of this C.E. in my opinion because it is made to look and feel like a real, high quality, hard cover book, with sleeve and all! Inside the pages are of great quality and contain images made with the game's graphic engine, all full-color! It really does look, feel and smell great! Then we have the actual game which comes in a normal, old-fashioned black DVD snap case with only the front cover (plain black back cover) - at first glance this case looks a bit disappointing and out of place next to the other items but then you do appreciate the attention to authenticity - it just feels more bootleg and sort of old-school cool. Inside the snap case though there is a full colored booklet (a rare for European games nowadays) and a coupon with codes to get up-coming DLC for free.

All in all this is a superb C.E. which not only impresses with its contents but also with its quality and relevance to the game's theme and atmosphere. I recommend this to everyone, It really is that good and given how great the game itself is you can't go wrong

the only CE i could find that was better was the CODMW2 prestige addition which came with night vision goggles.
alan wakes CE is pure class from start to finish and all the extras give the game a much deeper level. awesome!
