Check out the review of the game here: Alan Wake Review
Remedy, Remedy, Remedy. Thank you so much for the Max Payne games, but seriously—you screwed up big time with Alan Wake. People in general may love it because of its story, and I’ll concede that the story is good for the most part (though not great, even at its best), but you can’t just throw a bunch of random stuff in and then end the game before there’s any kind of meaningful resolution. There was a huge opportunity for an amazing self-sacrifice ending that would tie everything together and make sense, yet you went with something completely different that borders on the nonsensical.
Leaving lingering questions behind for players to chew on after playing is one thing, but leaving almost everything completely unexplained at the end is storytelling at its absolute worst, being both sloppy and hilariously pretentious. That’s not even mentioning how badly the combat sucks.
