“Alan Wake Remastered” is almost here and the critic reviews have been rolling in. While the general consensus seems to be that this package makes positive updates to the decade-old title, critics seem split on the quality of the original game. “Alan Wake Remastered” releases on October 5 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, including both story DLCs for just $30.
Back on the Xbox 360, “Alan Wake” was generally well-received, with an 83 on Metacritic, and was Remedy Entertainment’s claim to fame prior to the release of “Control.” The game follows the titular author Alan Wake, as he explores a small mountain town, trying to discover what happened to his wife and why he can’t remember the last week. While there has been no shortage of remasters in recent years, including the classic FPS game “Quake,” it seems that “Alan Wake Remaster” brings back a classic third-person horror game in a strong way at a reasonable price.
