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 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.
