It's a spin-off from original Alan Wake game (which is exceptionally good thriller even after all these years) and as such it's more action focused, simpler, and more straightforward. More like an arcade version of Alan Wakes universe. It's fairly short and yet it shows and tells more than one could expect. Remedy (as it's usual) won't stop surprising with a good narrative, as well as deep knowledge in the construction of worlds, heavily inspired by American culture. By that, I mean fancy cars, drive-in theaters, oil wells, and psychos. Everything is as perfect as it was in those short thrillers and horror tales I used to grow up with. Aside from this, Alan Wake takes another look at the idea of multidimensional realities, this could blow our minds a few years ago, but it's getting even better when we're almost convinced that reality could be simulated, just not entirely sure what could be the purpose of it. Or... We could take it as a session with a life coach and try to understand how we could change the reality we live in :D.
