Locked: I am disappointed in Alan Wake

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - I am disappointed in Alan Wake

For me, Alan Wake was the Best Game in Show at MS E3. I'm sorry, but does nobody here know what Alan Wake is? Its open world, meaning that in all likelihood, that one scene was ONLY so action based because it was a mission, and a very tense one at that. More then likely, when investigating and finding clues, the game will have much more in common with Silent Hill.

Oh to know nothing of a game and judge it from a single section. How...usual. I



GOTY Contestants this year: Dead Space 2, Dark Souls, Tales of Graces f. Everything else can suck it.

The game looks awesome, while it scares me that it looks similar to Alone in the Dark, i believe this game has lots of potential.

OP is blind by his bias



Well I'm sad the game isn't coming out until spring as well but you lost me at limited gameplay shown. The gameplay was video was plenty long in fact when I was watching the video I started to wonder how much longer were they going to go. Ofcourse since I didn't mind because the game is freaking beautiful. I've seen one other game this year that had my jaw drop and that was uncharted2.

This makes sense.  I bet the game starts off slowly and builds to that level of intensity.  In all probability, that footage was from very far into the game.  I remember when they showed off Gears of War 2 at E3.  I watched the gameplay and thought "this looks pretty awesome".  Then, after I bought the game, I learned that this was footage from THE LAST LEVEL.  I don't have much to go on, besides that video, but I bet the game is more Silent Hill than Resident Evil. 

Thanks for putting things back into perspective, Shadowblind!

Not to impressed with Alan Wake either. I'm sure it will be a great game don't get me wrong, but like some im jaded by silent hill. Now if only konami would take silent hill away from western developers and back in the hands of the japanese....



I'm impressed with Alan wake because we actually saw gameplay for the first time, ever.

Looks fantastic, and may be a fantastic horror game. Hopefully it ships in Q1 2010 and is what Remedy claims it'll be.

And like ShadowBlind said, everyone here forgets (typical of people that trash certain games) that the game is sandbox, and is only showing one section of the game off. Do you think that showing off a slow, scary scene that takes 5 minutes to build up is going to be the best banner moment for E3? No. It wouldn't. E3 is about being fast-paced, and they only have so much time to show their 'best'. What I saw of Alan Wake looked good. Of course, if that's all the game was, there'd be a problem, as it would be a Resident Evil clone. However, I have faith that Remedy is going to make it very scary, and tense. All we've seen with the overview of how it works points in that direction, too.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

I wasn't impress by it - Maybe I just haven't seen enough of it yet but It doesn't really seem the sort of thing I'd buy - I think it will sell ok but I'd have prefered something more revolutionary
