Trivia

If you watch the "Harry Garret Show" to completion, Harry will ask guest Sam Lake to "Do the face again" before the show ends. The "face" Sam is making is the face of Max Payne. The video game, Max Payne (2001) was previously developed by Remedy and Sam Lake's face was digitized and used for the lead character Max in the very first Max Payne game. See more »

Goofs

Alice Wake's driver's license, picked up by Alan when it was left in an old car, was issued in the USA, which organizes date of birth by month/date/year. Alice's license, while difficult to read in game can be seen clearly in the Official Survival Guide, lists her date of birth as 24-11-79 (day-month-year). No US issued license would list a date in this manner. See more »

Great game hampered by repetition
17 December 2015 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

First of all, I am a fan of Alan Wake and I'd play the sequel in a heartbeat if they ever made one. It's atmospheric, cinematic and rife with panicked encounters. At least, it is for the first two chapters. After that, it loses much of its magic for the simple reason that you become conditioned to it. There are only so many possessed humans jumping out of bushes and coming at you with an axe you can handle before it becomes laborious to blind them and then shoot them. Rinse and repeat over and over again for 6 full chapters. What the game desperately needed was a more varied backdrop than endless forests at night time and swarms upon swarms of the same enemy type. Despite this, it remains one of the better horror games out there, and for this very reason it is still that cult classic that people just can't seem to stop talking about. If you haven't had your hands on a copy yet, what are you waiting for?
