Your voice is very conversational here and I like that. I also like the numerous references to other video games and media that immediately paints a picture for us of this experience without getting too wordy about explaining every minor detail.


Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

I'm writing my own review on the game that should be up any day now, so I'm not going to read this one as of yet. This is just a heads up in case another Halo: Reach moment happens.


For us. For them. For you.

I'll be interested to see what you decide to talk about now that there are no more trees :)

Thanks, Zipp.

Alan Wake: American Nightmare is a game of countless cacti.

Nicely done, and--agreed.

This review makes me want to run out and pick up the first one. I probably would, too, if I weren't hopelessly addicted to Skyrim.

Great job, man!

Thanks for the comments. And to be fair, Joe, I seem to be in the vast minority of people who loved Alan Wake, so I take no responsibility if you're underwhelmed by it :)

Vast minority? What? I loved the first Wake. I was not aware it was frowned upon in the gaming community. With that said, I almost feel compelled to play this BECAUSE of how much I liked the first, but most of its reviews have been ho-hum. You finely displayed the pros and cons in this piece while painting a clear picture of the atmosphere. Nice piece. I'm sure the small price tag will result in me owning this very soon.
