Trivia

Title character Alan Wake wrote a successful series of books about Alex Casey. This parallels Remedy's previous series Max Payne (2001). Both are hard-boiled New York detectives. Several Alex Casey book titles (in Wake's office bookshelf) match titles of Max Payne chapters. Sheriff Breaker mentions the Casey books were a bit heavy on the metaphors, a common critique of Max Payne. Finally, the actor who voiced Max Payne reads Alex Casey's narration. 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 »

One of the most boring games I've played
17 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The fact that this game was mired in development and hype for five years and that far superior games like Dead Space have been and gone in the interim makes Alan Wake's crapiness all the more unforgivable. The landscapes and water effects are rather stunning but the cut scenes especially facial mo-cap fx are frankly bloody awful, silent hill 2 on the PS2 puts this game to shame. The combat is unbelievably repetitive and dull. Worst of all the story and dialogue are BOOOORING! The main character is a total ass. It's hard playing a character who you don't identify with. He's a diva who throws a strop every time one of his adoring fans recognise him or someone merely mentions writing. The rest of the characters are equally dull
