Remedy has finally managed to bring back Alan Wake with the release of Alan Wake's American Nightmare, an Xbox Live Arcade title which is easily on par with other triple A games out there. The graphics engine is still pretty impressive, except maybe in daylight sequences. Combat-wise, nothing particularly new under the sun of Arizona, so no need to spend hours learning new techniques. It is however impossible to weaken an enemy without using the batteries of your torchlight now - which makes us wonder if the Southwest of the US only provides poor quality batteries. If you still haven't made up your mind about purchasing the game or not, take a look at our three videos inside.
@jmd749: That scene with them two and the baby though, really good scene that. (43 minutes ago)
yea, i have a feeling it won't be any kind of seamless campaign, more like different missions all related to the same story-arc (51 minutes ago)
the whole unlocked single player missions has me worried about the flow of the narrative though. maybe it's more like left 4 dead this time around? (55 minutes ago)
unless you want to take all 60 or whatever weapons out at one time there really is no reason to have them all unlocked. people simply buy the guns they want. akimbo smg's. ak47. whatever. (56 minutes ago)
a few hours and you would be playing the final mission of the campaign, even without the everting-is-unlocked -from-the-start :) (56 minutes ago)
@Melmoth: you could buy and use whatever you like in those few hour play. few hours more and you could buy whatever you fancied again. (57 minutes ago)
but anyways, it's no secret most fps devs want the singleplayer experience dead and buried. The future is (sadly) multiplayer only. (58 minutes ago)
