Alan Wake 2 is a confident and often ground-breaking thriller
Remedy's next major release is Alan Wake 2, out on October 27

Massively confident, often groundbreaking, and full of surprises, Alan Wake 2 is Remedy at its very best. The shooting isn't stellar, but Alan Wake 2 is otherwise a horror thriller that shouldn't be missed.

  • Excellent storytelling
  • Visually spectacular
  • Genuinely scary
  • Witty, weird and wonderful writing
  • Shooting can be clumsy
  • Occasional bugs
5 / 5
