2.0 out of 5 stars A guide that doesn't, 17 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Alan Wake Official Survival Guide (Prima Official Game Guides) (Paperback)
Alan Wake is a game of a writer and the forced development of a story, so I can understand why this guide was written in a narrative style, but it just doesn't work. I want a guide to be a reference, demonstrating clearly where all the goodies are, preferably on decent maps, allowing you to dip in and out whilst playing the game. Because of the format you have to read ahead for a few paragraphs to be able to highlight the collectables, then play. The maps are useless as there is no in game map you cannot reference your location against them, and because of the save format, if the map is wrong - and you didn't read ahead, you're screwed because you can't go back. A guide accentuates the game, this guide overrides the game - badly.
