Is Alan Wake complete without the DLC?

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Is Alan Wake complete without the DLC?

Hm... well if you like the game, get the DLC. I mean Lost is complete after season 3 when they get off the island, but they still made 3 seasons after that. You could stop at season 3, but if you really like the show, I'd finish it.

Same with Alan Wake, the game ends on a cliffhanger, and if you're interested in the plot overall, get the DLC. It's very long compared to the game itself, and worth the price. It also sets the story up for Alan Wake 2.

It adds to the experience, and explains the ending of Alan Wake. I think it completes the game, but due to the noticably different gameplay, I can see why it's DLC.

Out of all the DLC I've ever gotten, this is probably the most required.

If you really enjoy Alan Wake, then get the DLC. It not only completes part of the story, but opens up a whole new one. In addition to adding to the story, there are a lot of fun new gameplay and environment elements. I thought the second DLC was better than the first but that is just me.

 

I'd recommend getting the DLC because if you buy the game new you get the first one for free, and the 2nd one is better then the first.



As others have said it is complete without the DLC but the DLC does have some pretty intersting stuff in it that deepens the story ALOT.  If you do get them YOU HAVE TO PLAY THEM IN ORDER.  This isn't just add ons, they are litteraly the next chapters of the story.

And don't listen to what reviews say about Wake at all.  When I get to the ending of that game my jaw litteraly hit the floor.



Ack more info, thanks I think I'll look into the dlc more too, i might have to make some space for them on my crummy old arcade with a tiny HDD :(

Ach I am running low on my elite, don't know how people manage with an arcade ,

I am pretty much in the same boat as you, in regards to ME2 and AW DLC, I really liked both games but don't know if I can justify purchasing the DLC for them, unless there is a deal offered of course, both of which I've missed during Christmas.



Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

Haha, the 360 is not even my main gaming platform and its still full, This gen feels so much like PCs... never enough space xD.

HAHA I'm in the same boat. If you delete the DLC when you finish with it, you can re-download it for free. Also, get a 16GB or 8GB thumb drive. It really makes things easier, and if you go to a friends house, no more retreiving gamer profiles.

I mean an 8GB tumb drive runs for $10 now, it's worth it.

I delete map packs for old games (like Gears 1, Lost Planet 1), and I have an external 8GB thumb drive. Combined I have 22GB of memory, and I usually have 4-5GB free. Never ran out of space before, but once in a while I have to move saves onto the thumb drive.

I actually liked the game better without the DLC. I only played the Signal though, maybe the other one is better. Don't get me wrong, the DLC is fine, but the game itself just plays with your mind about what's real and not, and has a very cool story, while the DLC didn't to me.

Alan Wake is a great game.

You really should get the ME2 Shadow Broker DLC, it's absolutely magnificent. The other two are great as well, but only if you really like the game and want to have all the characters and story.
