Trivia

The characters, Mott and Stucky were different in the original script. Originally, Mott was supposed to own the gas station and Stucky was the town's troublemaker. Over the course of game development, they switched roles. You can still see Mott's name on the gas station on the 2006 Intel Demo. See more »

Quotes

Alan Wake: I'm crazy, but that's fine Barry.
Barry Wheeler: [laughs] You got that right, Al, you're barking mad. You are by far, the craziest...
Alan Wake: But maybe that's inevitable when you deal with crazy stuff like this. It helps. This is happening, Barry. Alice, they never had Alice. She's trapped in the darkness at the bottom of the lake, but she's NOT dead.
Barry Wheeler: Al, how can you know that?
Alan Wake: I know, Barry, I can...
Barry Wheeler: Al, I...

One of the best...its that simple
4 January 2014 | by (ENGLAND-carlisle) – See all my reviews

OK its not a gun fest, no mutants or screens covered with body parts....but it does not need it. It looks great (not bad now even today 2014) the acting parts are well done and the cut scenes are A+, there are no corners cut, they cover all the bases.

Sound FX and music are again A+, there is no driving score all the way, but they add what they need to just to keep it spooky and at times fun.

Story, well thats the big thing, all talking about its like this film/book/movie, and TBH there are a few that are close but there is more than enough differences to make it original.

I would say mix In The Mouth Of Madness (film) Twin Peaks (tv show) Shinning (book) =amazing story that draws you in, you do feel like you are part of the story....almost like you are reading it.

It has action but for likes of Resident Evil fans, they might find it lacking, but for me it was just right.

I really hope they do more like this, but seeing as how long this one took to get finished and final come out.....well I will not hold my breath....but there is DLC for it, which is next on my list of to do's.
