Alan Wake's American Nightmare is just that. Bland, repetitive (literally) and without much of a story. Prime antagonist this time around is your evil alter ego (I dont like to say twin because he isn't real). My memory is a bit hazy, but didnt we face a similar concept in one of Alan Wake's add-on episode DLCs?

Anyways, there are three main areas, very much non-linear and free-roamish, but for that the story itself is bleh. Most of the fun comes from watching the live action cutscenes (also on TVs in the game) and collecting manuscripts (and there are a lot), although they just retell the story of the original Alan Wake, with a bit of extra development around the main characters.

As for the gameplay - it is way too easy. Compared to Alan Wake, there is just so much ammo in this game it's not even funny anymore. You never run out. You are given permission to be as trigger happy as can be. There are several new weapons in American Nightmare, such as the submachine gun, the nailgun, or the combat shotgun. Access to these new weapons is usually only granted via opening a suitcase they are locked in, which can only be done after you have collected x amount of pages in that particular level, where x depends on how powerful that gun is.

Gameplay clocks in at about 5 and a half hours - at least for me, as I spent some time hunting for manuscripts to get them all. This was just for the main story. American Nightmare has some redeeming value in that there is an arena mode called "Fight Till Dawn" where you have to survive until sunrise (10 minutes) against several increasingly stronger waves of Taken on various mini levels like such as a cemetery, ghost town, oil field, canyon (though it's called "caves") and trailer park.

I enjoyed Alan Wake, although I had some pretty serious gripes about the gameplay. Thankfully all the things that annoyed me about the original game (control being temporarily wrenched away from the player every time enemies approached was the worst) have gone from this follow-up. As a result this short episode is a much more satisfying, if brief, experience (there are only about 6 hours of main story gameplay here, although there is an arcade game tagged on, which is basically a survival mode where you’re pitted against waves of enemies). The story has an unusual, Groundhog Day structure which entails the player repeating tasks several times in an effort to defeat the main enemy, Mr Scratch. This sounds dull but it isn’t because the atmosphere and combat are enjoyable enough to remain fresh through the few hours it takes to complete. I also liked the use of FMV cutscenes, which, sadly, are a rare thing these days (it took me back to 90s -- the heyday for FMV games). Overall AWAN is an improvement on the original game. I do feel, however, that Remedy will have to come up with a stronger storyline to keep the player’s interest for a full-length campaign in AW2.

I can't play this on my own in the house as it scares me!!!!

The only thing is that this CD Rom still requires a steam download, so personally I would have preferred to just buy it on steam if I had realized

I suspect this game was rushed into production to cash in on the first game. They should have waited & put more work into it.

Sadly, massive repetition does not make a good game.

Graphics are as good as the first game, I assume same engine.
