Alan Wake is creepy fun

I finally had a chance to start Alan Wake last night and it’s quite good. The mood is very creepy and scary and the game really dragged me into it. I have really enjoyed other Remedy games in the past (Max Payne series) and this is more of the same. The unshaven male character wandering around in the dark being attacked by baddies is similar, but so far, I haven’t run across anything like Max Payne’s bullet time mechanic. In this game, Alan weakens creatures through light, then blows them away with guns once they are sufficiently weakened. Flare guns are a real treat, as they cause major carnage.

I’m still unclear why all the baddies are attacking Alan, but I’ll keep playing to find out! Good fun!
