Alan Wake First Impressions

I just recently fired up this game again. Finished episode one a few minutes ago. So far I really like it. As a fan of the show Supernatural, I think it captures that same sense of creepiness and foreboding mixed with healthy amounts of action and humor.

It isn't a horror game on the level of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, but it will provide a few scares for the faint of heart. Overall I think of it more as a third person shooter with a dark/mysterious storyline than a game whose sole purpose is to try and freak out the player and keep them from sleeping at night.

I'll make a new post when I've gotten further into the game. Thus far however I'd say it was well worth the dirt cheap price I bought it for ($3).
