I love Alan Wake(bought it twice at full price) and i gotta admit i didn't think American Nightmare was anywhere near as good. The original Alan Wake was great because of it story and atmosphere. American Nightmare is more or less a shooting gallery with little story.
Ad you said it kept returning to he same place? The motel in the middle of the map (been watching walkthroughs to getan idea of the game)? I'm not too worried about that. Like I said, I play Skyrim, and I play Fallout, so I don't hate the idea of a small open world type of game
The orignal comes with the base game + the story DLC. It is a much better value to buy the orignal Alan Wake. And I'm not sure if you should buy Alan Wake, I think it is a lot more demanding then games like Skyrim and MW2.
[QUOTE="biggest_loser"]Avoid Alan Wake altogether, whether its the vanilla game or the American Nightmare. The game is a shambles, undoing every positive achieved with Max Payne. SPYDER0416
I don't know if you realize this, but Alan Wake is NOT the sequel to Max Payne. Max Payne 3 is, and Alan Wake is a new horror IP, so I don't really see the Max Payne comparisons here.
Gee thanks for pointing that out!! Now I know that Alan Wake is not actually a sequel to Max Payne! No wonder its set between forests and not New York! It all makes sense now! I thought the game had more wildlife in it!! I could have sworn that Max Payne was a police officer and not an author! But I could have been wrong...till now!! Thanks Spyder! You're going super!!
Could it also be that I was also pointing out that what Remedy achieved with Max Payne they made a hash of here? Lousy combat system, weak writing, hand-holding game play, generic setups.
