So you want to know if a game is any good before you buy it? Below you can find the reviews for Alan Wake, as well as the DLC episodes The Signal and The Writer. Reviews tell you what the pros and cons are of a game, how the game plays, if the story line is any good, the ESRB Rating, number of players, genre, multiplayer options…You get the idea. We put everything all in one place for you so you’ll be able to figure out if the game is right for you. If you have any questions that the reviews didn’t answer, start a new thread on the forum.

If you don’t mind periodically revisiting game design from 1999, Alan Wake is an engaging horror mystery that brings the heart of Stephen King’s style of storytelling to the interactive medium.

Remedy's done a great job of mixing elements of written work, television, and videogames to create an experience full of scares, laughs, and thrills that's just as fun to play as it is to watch.​

Read the full review here: Direct Link’s one hell of a story, capped off by a quiet, breathtaking denouement that makes good on the opening lines of Alan’s initial descent. Everything in between is just a trail of breadcrumbs leading you back to what you slowly realize you already knew. Accomplishing this narrative sleight of hand is rare in videogames, and Remedy’s success at it is a testament to what imaginative storytellers can do with the medium.

Creepy atmosphere, fantastic combat, and clever storytelling make Alan Wake's quest thrilling from beginning to end.

The story in Alan Wake's first downloadable episode lacks a purpose, but exciting combat and a moody atmosphere make this a good addition.

The story is as warped as ever with taught writing and a style that never becomes too self-serious. Even if Alan Wake didn’t thrill you on your first playthrough I still recommend giving this add-on a try.

The Writer a must-play for anybody that downloaded The Signal as it wraps up the mini-story arc.

Man I heard about this game! Like a cross between James Bond and a Stephen King thriller, right? Something like that, right? Sounds like fun, I'll have to check it out.
