Trivia

The Anderson brothers mention that they had something stolen from them by '... the witch. Baba Yaga.' The antagonist's name is 'Barbara Jagger' which has some phonetic similarity to a character from Russian folklore. She also provides the keys to a cabin called 'Bird Leg Cabin.' Baba Yaga is known in folklore to travel in a cabin attached to a bird's leg. 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 »

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...
Alan Wake: No, listen. I can bring her back, I can find here. There's something special about this place. The lake, it, ...

Best Compelling Game Ever!

This is the best game I have played in a while. Every detail and points in this game is extremely polished. The story is the most hard to put down plot I have seen in a LONG time. The character development are really great: Alan Wake is my favorite character so far in gaming. The gameplay is solid, it makes this character feel real and in danger; he's a writer not a action hero. The environments are detailed every inch of the way. It's like you are in the game. Just personally I love this game to the bone. This is definitely one of the best games I have ever played in my life time. Just go out and buy it full price. The compelling of this game is so intense that I was scared. This is a master piece! Please, give me a great follow-up to this.

10/10 Greatness
