    The original Alan Wake was one of the few titles I considered to have been original in its installment into the not-so-vast library of Xbox 360 exclusives, not to mention the survival horror genre which has been dying ou... Read Full Review

    Reacuring Nightmare

    Alan Wake I personally felt was a breath of fresh air for the survival horror genere which was getting a little stale. This follow up I'll admit was a supprise because it came fast, usual most franchises that have a fol... Read Full Review

    It's not as good as the first one....

    I was thrilled by the first one, but this one is not as good as the other one, though it has some philosophic concepts, like the time loop where our writer friend is caught up. Basically you have to escape this time loop... Read Full Review

    Even though the game has lost its thrilling moments, Alan Wake's American Nightmare is still entertaining shooter.

    The PC version of Alan Wake hit on Steam a week before this sequel was bound for release on Xbox Live Arcade. For whatever reason, it took a long time coming for Mr. Wake to move his torch shining skills to the PC. As a ... Read Full Review
