So far so good,
This review is from: Alan Wake (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
First off I am only on episode 2 and don't usually write reviews. But I felt like I wanted to because of all the bad reviews this game is getting. My opinion on this game may change as I get further in, but so far I am enjoying it a lot. The graphics are some of the best I have seen, and probably the best on Xbox 360. The lighting is fantastic and so is the draw distance. You really do feel like you are in these creepy woods at night trying to survive. And the story so far has pulled me right in, I don't really like the main character, he seems like a bit of a jerk so far, a bit arrogant, a bit to easy to lose his temper. But maybe that's what they were going for in this game.
People say this game isn't scary, well compared to what?. I don't find any game to be scary, some games are creepy such as Silent Hill, Dead Space, and a few of the Resident Evil games. And I would add this game to the list of creepy titles out there. I do find the forest at night creepy, and the enemies as well. Something about enemies that talk to you as you are fighting them, is creepy, well to me anyway. Makes a change from mindless zombies and ghouls. This game reminds me of Silent Hill, mixed with a bit of Twin Peaks and John Carpenter's The Fog. If that makes sense.
One more thing I want to address is the game length. I've heard this game is short, the main game is about 10-12 hours long, but this game also comes with a code that allows you to download the siren, which is a extra episode that adds another hour or two to the game. It's also of good quality, like the main game. You will get your moneys worth out of this title, there are achievements for finding lots of hidden items and completing the game on different difficulty levels too.
I am not easily impressed with video games, I nearly passed over this game because of a lot of bad reviews. But so far I am very pleased that I bought it, and for the great price of £18 aswell.
