Storyline

Reporter Jake Fischer arrives in Bright Falls to interview a resident psychiatrist about his new book. After hitting a deer on a forest road and a series of odd encounters with townspeople, he soon finds himself blacking out and losing time, waking up in the middle of a forest and other locations where he wasn't previously. He also develops an aversion to light, finds strange and elaborate notes he has taken and suspects that he was somehow involved with the disappearance of a local motel owner. As his perceptions falter, he witnesses the signs of a mysterious epidemic sweeping the town. The longer he stays in Bright Falls, the more unpredictable his blackouts and behaviors become, leaving him no choice but to attempt an escape. Written by Anonymous

As an Alan Wake fan, I say; this is a very well made prequel
17 November 2012 | by (Bailey Downs!) – See all my reviews

I managed to complete the whole of Alan Wake in half a week. I decided to take a look at this unofficial prequel. Its not as good as it could have been but it was still good.

Firstly I think Sam Lake would have written this story a bit better but the writers did know what they were doing with this.

On the subject of the game, you could watch this without knowing a single thing about the game and you'd STILL get the same experience. Alan Wake has only a minute of screen time, 10 seconds with every episode except the last one.

The plot? Jake Fischer is a reporter interviewing a Dr. Hartman on his new book. While he's in Bright Falls he begins to have blackouts. He tries to piece together what happened.

Christopher Forsyth does a good job as the reporter as does everyone else in the cast.

My complaints? The supernatural side of the game is not displayed. If we saw the Taken and Barbara Jagger, that would have made Fischer question his sanity even more, hence more interesting. Another one which is huge in my book, why are there no Old Gods Of Asgard records? They played the part of a plot device to the other Alan Wake games, why not the miniseries? I know that the Americans that made this would have been unlikely to have paid the airfare for Poets Of The Fall to come down to America and record a song but that would have been fantastic.

Overall, I recommend this highly to fans of the game.
