Manufacturer's Description

Alan Wake is a psychological action thriller, exclusively for Xbox 360, where gamers assume the role of Alan Wake, a best-selling suspense author who escapes to a small town to recover from the mysterious disappearance of his fiancée.

Overview

Bringing a new style of storytelling to Xbox 360, Alan Wake is a psychological action thriller from Remedy, the developers of the successful Max Payne series. In this dynamic new title exclusively for Xbox 360, players assume the role of Alan Wake, a best-selling suspense author suffering from writer's block, who escapes to a small town only to experience the mysterious disappearance of his wife.

Set in the deceptively idyllic town of Bright Falls, Washington, Alan Wake immerses players in an intense and expansive cinematic world that enables players to explore the hyper-realistic and interactive environments. Alan Wake is mission-based with a deeply engaging and suspenseful storyline unveiling new twists and profound character revelations at every turn.

Players will unravel the riveting plot through multilayered character interactions, unique problem-solving and intense combat against terrifying enemies. In this nightmarish world, where fantasy and reality collide, Alan Wake must use a variety of weapons to survive, including his most powerful ally against the darkness - light itself.

Intense psychological action thriller
Alan Wake delivers a deeply psychological and finely crafted plot that raises the bar for storytelling in video games. The riveting story of Alan Wake is propelled by a movie-like atmosphere, compelling situations, memorable characters and real-time pacing.

Light as a combat element
As Wake journeys deeper into the mystery of Bright Falls, the shadows close in around him. When darkness descends, light becomes his only ally as he fights his way to daybreak. This poses a severe problem for Alan Wake since his enemies seemingly gain strength from the shadows. Players must skillfully combine their use of light with more conventional weapons to stand a chance.


Realistic, interactive environment
Set in the town of Bright Falls, the hyper-detailed environments of the Pacific Northwest play an important role; even the change in daylight and weather will profoundly affect the characters and enemies in Alan Wake The game's advanced rendering engine provides amazingly realistic environments that bring this world to detailed life - from the lush forest of evergreen trees to the quaint small-town buildings and streets. The world of Alan Wake is alive and real.
Episodic narrative
The mission-based structure of Alan Wake creates an episodic narrative similar to a deeply structured dramatic television series, such as LOST, Twin Peaks and X-Files. As the episodes progress, gameplay will evolve to introduce new elements and characters, escalating the level of threat and action in the game.

Alan Wake presents an unusual and new gaming experience that features a riveting, multi-layered story while giving the player the ability to freely roam a giant environment. It supports Dolby Digital sound and runs at a beautiful high-definition 720p.

Try with a different browser or try clearing your cookies

Cant order either.

Just the one copy. ;-)

Just cleared cookies, no joy. Dont want to use another browser, dont like IE! LOL

Just ordered another item from Amazon and went through fine, so guessing they have sold out but its still listed as in stock?


I really liked this game....in fact the last level is actually one of the best ive ever played.

Although "Freely explore a 100 square kilometre town" is blatent misleading advertising. There is extremely limited ability to divert from the linear path.

Do recommend a purchase if you've never played it.

Same here. I get the error message also.

same here, i get the error message...must have run out fast...damn

I just had a email from Amazon and they have confirmed that it is oos,

available again! For how long, who knows

Just tried again, oos.

Thanks for the heads up, Amazon's stock system seems to be a bit hit and miss for me at the mo, as well as this it happened to me on a hard drive earlier - shows as in stock but when ordered gave estimated despatch date of 27 Jan 2011!!

Expired - now showing on Amazon in stock at £14.95.
