  • Summary: In this cinematic action-thriller, troubled author Alan Wake embarks on a desperate search for his missing wife, Alice. Following her mysterious disappearance from the Pacific Northwest town of Bright Falls, he discovers pages of a horror story he has supposedly written, but he has no memoryIn this cinematic action-thriller, troubled author Alan Wake embarks on a desperate search for his missing wife, Alice. Following her mysterious disappearance from the Pacific Northwest town of Bright Falls, he discovers pages of a horror story he has supposedly written, but he has no memory of. Wake is soon forced to question his sanity, as page by page, the story comes true before his eyes: a hostile presence of supernatural darkness is taking over everyone it finds, turning them against him. He has no choice but to confront the forces of darkness armed only with his flashlight, a handgun and what remains of his shredded mind. His nightmarish journey to find answers to the mind-bending mystery he faces will lead him into the terrifying depths of the night. Alan Wake Remastered offers the complete experience, with the main game and its two story expansions - The Signal and The Writer - in stunning new 4K visuals. The tense, episodic story is packed with unexpected twists, heart-stopping cliff hangers, and intense bursts of combat where it takes more than bullets to banish the darkness. The game’s cutscenes, quirky cast of characters, and the majestic Pacific Northwest vistas have been enhanced for an experience that delivers as much on its visual impact as its unnerving atmosphere.

    Alan Wake Remastered is basically the same game that came out in 2010 with its pros and cons remaining intact. If you're a fan or want more context as to what Control's AWE DLC was all about, it might be worthwhile. Otherwise, it's best saved for an on-sale pickup.

The fact that they even cared to remaster it and bring to other consoles as well is big deal.
    Remedy is at least working on stuff, Alan Wake 2 is clearly coming 2022 or 2023. Also it's good that lots of people can finally experience Alan Wake for the first time and also it's great for old fans, because it looks better than old version in every way possible.

    The sound of the graph, the elaboration of the plot, everything is perfect - but I would like to see finally part 2 in Steam

    игра все еще выглядит очень хорошо, интересный сюжет. Иногда надоедает геймплей.

For a long time afterwards I frequently heard about how celebrated it was and how Remedy were brilliant game developers. I was very eager to experience a Remedy game for myself, but unfortunately Quantum Break was an Xbox exclusive that underperformed. Thankfully, Remedy released Control in 2019 and I wholeheartedly enjoyed that game (it was easily one of my top 10 games for that year). When Remedy released the second DLC expansion for Control in 2020 entitled AWE, I was excited to learn that AWE would connect Control with Alan Wake and I would finally have the chance to experience a smidgeon of the overall vibe of Remedy's masterpiece. AWE turned out to be a fantastic cross-over, albeit a little cryptic, but it ultimately delivered what it promised.

    When Remedy announced that it would be releasing a remastered version of Alan Wake this year I was pretty ecstatic to be able to finally play the actual game, and now I can finally share what I think of Remedy's opus.

But considering some of the recent remasters on the market, Alan Wake´s rejuvenation looks rather dull - especially on XBOX Series X and PlayStation 5. Anyway, if you´ve never experienced the mysteries of Bright Falls before, your money´s still well spent. Expand

The gameplay consists mainly of walking from point A tobpoint B. I really dont understand all the positive reviews, people gave this game. The bad game design is obvious too me, so i have no idea why someone would like this game. Expand
