What Gamespot Users have to say about Alan Wake's American Nightmare

    Bite size Alan wake is juicy and delicious.... but I wanted a main course :(

    Rated on February 24, 2012 by Deingerous

    So this is for lack of a better term, "bite sized" Alan wake, which for me is the main problem. There's not much wrong with it, it's just I can't help but feel a full blown retail version should have ...

    Quite a big name to it, but not good enough for me.

    Rated on February 25, 2012 by Paradoxal1

    Somewhat limited in terms of gameplay, the visual graphics is quite standard and the sound was quite original but the overall is kind of repetitive and disappointing. I'd still like a remake or sequel...

    Alan Wake's American Nightmare brings a cool little chapter to the psychological thriller franchise.

    Rated on March 01, 2012 by MathMattS

    Graphics: 9/10 The graphics, like those of the original game and downloadable content, are very sharp and detailed. The desert scenery and night skies are pleasant to look at. The only downside is, as...

    One of the highest production value game in XBLA

    Rated on February 27, 2012 by y3ivan

    American Nightmare is a indirect sequel to the original Alan Wake, half spinoff and half of a sequel. Story overall is quite confusing, as it represent a chapter of a tv series called the nightsprings...

    A nice addendum to the original storyline, but set your expectations around size/content accordingly for an XBLA title.

    Rated on March 03, 2012 by Byshop

    The original Alan Wake was a title I eagerly awaited for many years. What I got was a bit off the mark from the originally promised "GTA style open world horror title" but I found it to be a solid ent...

    Entertaining and memorable, American Nightmare is an XBLA title that plays and feels like a full retail release.

    Rated on March 04, 2012 by Subterranean500

    Back in 2010, one of my favorite games was Alan Wake. It was a psychological thriller, centering about horror writer, Alan Wake, and his quest to find his wife Alice who disappeared during her and Ala...

    American Nightmare is the second game in the Wake series. Not the sequel most were hoping for but its not half bad.

    Rated on April 01, 2012 by Pickleking23

    Story - The story takes place in the tv show "Night Springs" which many will remember from the first game. Night springs is a fictional tv show that takes place in a town called "Night Springs" but th...

    American Nightmare is an uninspired game that fails to expand on what made the original so great...

    Rated on April 10, 2012 by WTA2k5

    In today's video game industry, the idea of a "sleeper hit" is almost laughable. Most quality under-the-radar games get their just due, whether it's through extensive games media coverage, ports and H...
