Trivia

The music from the band, "Old Gods of Asgard" was actually performed by Finnish rock band, Poets of the Fall. They had previously contributed the ending song to Remedy's video game Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne (2003). Writer Sam Lake can frequently be seen wearing a "Poets of the Fall" shirt.

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
