Review: Alan Wake Remastered shines a new light on an old friend

An uneven action experience gets by on a huge amount of charm and a gorgeous visual treatment that more than holds its own ten years later.

  • Flashy (and flashbang-y) combat has never looked better
  • A love letter to pulpy thriller writing
  • Not Remedy’s greatest combat system
  • Cutscenes not consistent with the rest of the remaster
4 / 5
