    I am intrigued. The concept is so different. The graphics look amazing. I am definitely picking it up around release day. I remember buying my Xbox 360 in October of 2006 and picking up a free copy of Game Informer, and they had a write about about this game. It's been a long time coming.

    I'm pumped for this game. Are you guys watching the live action prequel episodes on xbox live? They're pretty freaky.

    Nawwwwwww, I haven't checked it out. I haven't had much time to play my 360 lately :(

    I'll be picking this bad boy up once I get back from my vacation.

    Really intrigued. Already preordered my copy. Should be awesome. Let's hope it lives up to it.

    I am pissed. I first saw this game in 2004 or 2005 at E3 (in the ATI theater). I always kept up with development...UNTIL it went Xbox Only (no PC version). Then I just said to hell with it...

    I thought Alan Wake was okay. Interested gameplay concept. Very repetitive. The main character is sort of a douche, so its hard to want him to succeed. Regardless its worth renting and beating quickly.

    I wanna play Alan Wake when I get some time. Heard it is a great game. I am a fan of Silent Hill Series too so I like scary looking games. Will have to play in the dark and with the sound turned way up. lol

    Just finished this game and I thought it was awesome! It's definitely not like any other game I've played before. It's almost like an interactive movie. I love the story line and the ending has me pumped for Alan Wake 2.

    That's assuming they make one. I don't think they will imo. They plan on releasing DLC to cover up all the missing patches I think. First DLC already was released and I beat it recently, was well worth the purchase.

    MAJOR MASSIVE SPOILER ALERT!!!! SERIOUSLY, THINK TWICE ABOUT SHOWING THIS HIDDEN TEXT IF YOU HAVEN'T COMPLETELY FINISHED THE GAME!!!!

    I honestly think that the ending set everything up for a sequel. Especially his comment about the darkness not being a lake but an ocean. I just don't see how they could wrap that up in a DLC. Obviously, the darkness has survived and is larger than just Bright Falls.

    Ohhh yeah. It came out a few months ago. You might be able to find a cheap copy on eBay or used from a game store.

    I havent played it much. But there is a part near the beginning that scared the hell outta my kids. I dont wanna give anything away to folks that didnt play it yet, but you'll know ehwn it happens. Make sure the volume is up...LOL!!

    I didnt realize I had the volume was up loud...lol Scared me too...

    kratos said it good, its like an interactive movie. Its like Heavy Rain, but with more action to it. Its a cross between Heavy Rain and an action, adventure game.

    Heavy Rain is definitely like an interactive movie all the way.

    I played the Heavy Rain demo and I think I like Alan Wake better. Just my own opinion.

    I do too. Its no action type things to do on Heavy Rain. Its press this button, move this stick this way...Its like that Dragons Lair game from back in the day.

    Now I just need to find all the collectibles. I thought I was doing good about it, but I missed a few manuscript pages, one tv show, one radio show, like 20 coffee thermoses, all of the alarm clocks, and all of the cardboard stand ups.

    I didn't even realize that there were alarm clocks or cardboard stand ups until I finished the game and looked at the stats.

    Well, I guess that could be considered replay value... :D

    this game reminded me of alone in the dark, but without the bugs. i thought this game was good, but not GREAT . its worth playing at least once. graphics are good, cut scenes r good, story line is good, but it does get pretty repetative. and i hate running out of ammo! (played it on the hardest mode)

    I'm missing 1 radio show and have no idea where the hell it is. I found 7 of the 10 alarm clocks and I got all of the cardboard ads.
