Alan might get his name on the box, but the real star here - as with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Half-Life - is the world. Alan Wake's small American town of Bright Falls offers an unprecedented feeling of reality. Unlike S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 's apocalyptic vision, here the accent is on ordinary things - storms, swirling winds, choppy river waters, rock falls - conspiring in an extraordinary way.
Stephen King-ish horror writer Alan's sleepless nights get strangely longer, and the hooded men that emerge from them more powerful. Light itself becomes one of Alan's few weapons. What's happened to his wife? Who or what is tormenting him? Is he mad?
Can't... resist... upgrade...
Obviously! A world so alive it makes Grand Theft Auto 's look as sterile as stainless steel just can't be missed.
