Alan Wake’s survival horror story line was one of it’s best components. The plot follows a novelist as he uncovers the mystery of his wife’s disappearance, all while experiencing a novel he wrote, (which he cannot remember writing) coming to life. Horror games are hard to develop in modern time, and Alan Wake does it perfectly. The game is a nice balance of searching, exploration, and challenges. Alan is always fighting “The Darkness” that is trying to take over the town and people that surround him, because of this, use of light sources in the game is a main game play aspect. The games visuals and sound are two defining characteristics that set it apart as well. The games entire soundtrack was composed beautifully and adds to the suspense of the title.
