Alan Awake

In the need of a Silent Hill game for the PC, here comes Alan Wake.

With the mix of a foggy city, Alone in the Dark bright lights, Stephen King aliens and twisted novels, Resident Evil shooting and some entertaining plot, bam! Alan Wake is made.

I’ve really enjoyed the game, even with it’s repetitive combat, dull environment exploring and sometimes empty puzzles. The narrative is a very strong point, at times it reminds a TV show, others a book being read, others a movie. A very unique narrative.

It’s a well made game, runs smooth on the PC, got great landscapes, sometimes I even stopped to enjoy the view.

I don’t know if I would play it again, but I’ll put it close to the “dear” ones in the collection. Especially because the lack of “Silent Hill kinda games” in the PC right now.
