American Nightmare hat eigentlich wenig mit der Hauptgeschichte gemein, und kann eher als ein DLC angesehen werden. Die Spielwelt ist überschaubar und der Handlungsverlauf führt einen durch wiederkehrende Schauplätze, was einen repetitiven Eindruck hinterlassen kann. Im bekannten Graphic-Novel-Stil wurde die Grafik aufgewertet und kommt in einer schönen Aufmachung daher.
Lässt man sich ausschließlich von der Story tragen, und verzichtet auf Erkundungen etc., wird man AWAN in ca. 3 Stunden durchgespielt haben. Der Arkade-Modus ist ein nettes Plus, bei dem man sich tatsächlich üben kann, um evntl. das Hauptspiel auf einem höheren Schwierigkeitsgrad anzugehen.

Insgesamt hat sich American Nightmare für mich als Alan Wake-Fan gelohnt, und ich geben AWAN eine 5/10.

Täglich grüßt das Murmeltier als Spiel!

Wer Lust hat, immer wieder dieselben Szenarios zu spielen oder besser gesagt, wem es nicht stört immer wieder dasselbe zu tun und das in nur 3 oder 4 gebieten ist hier genau richtig. Die Dialoge sind grauenhaft, genau so wie die Lösungsvorschläge der Quests!

Alles in allen war es zu einfach zu Spielen, null Herausforderung und pure Langeweile

Horror: 3 von 10

Spaß: 2 von 10

Grafik 4 von 10

Wer die Reihe Alan Wake nicht kennt, sollte auf keinen fall mit diesem Teil bzw. DLC anfangen sonst spielt man die Alan Wake Titel vielleicht nie wieder.

Nachdem ich Alan Wake (1) beendet hatte, habe ich sofort Alan Wake's American Nightmare installiert. Alan Wake (1) hat mir besonders gut gefallen. Als jemand der leicht zu schrecken ist, hatte ich schon ein bisschen Angst beim Spielen, wollte manche Gebiete nicht betreten und hatte schon auch paar Probleme mit Munition, Batterien und so weiter. Sowas habe ich bei Alan Wake's American Nightmare nicht erlebt. Keine Probleme mit der Munition, mit den Batterien, und besonders erschreckend war es auch nicht, aber das liegt daran, dass man sich nicht mehr in einem Wald befindet und sich wundert von wo man angegriffen wird. Es ist nicht besonders dunkel, keine Wälder, man kann nicht mehr überrascht werden und die Gegner werden einfach nervig.

Die Story fand ich schon ok, aber man sollte kein Alan Wake 2.0 erwarten. Ich würde es trotzdem empfehlen, da ich finde, dass dieses Spiel keine negative Wertung verdient hat.

American Nightmare is pretty good. You can clearly tell that they didn't have much time or money to develop something better, but with what's here they did a great job. This DLC only takes roughly 4 hours to get through, but it does it in quite a repetitive and cheap way. You will replay through the same 3 areas 3 times over to beat this. However every time you loop you thankfully aren't forced to carry out the same exact objectives. The NPC characters remember and will set things up so you don't have to do things over again. It keeps this from being a complete chore. Now with this you get a whole slew of new weapons to play with. New pistols, rifles and shotguns are yours to play around with. It's nice having an option between different weapons instead of just using the same revolver, rifle and 2 shotguns. There are new enemies that I would say are neat additions. They have unique abilities that challenge how you would normally deal with the Taken and I quite like that. This does include an arcade mode, but I have yet to give it a try. I would say this DLC is worth it's asking price of $9. The campaign is definitely not something I will be replaying anytime soon unlike the base game. However the arcade mode will be something nice to pick up, when I just want to kill some Taken.

It's Alan Wake with improved graphics, increased stamina, and endless combat. What's not to love? The story is MIA, the combat is a spaghetti shooter without ammo management, and the three areas that you experience on a repeating loop feel small after initial visits. American Nightmare is a sketch of Alan Wake reduced down to an arcade facsimile. It's best avoided. Replay the original Alan Wake instead.

This was a first time playthrough with America Nightmare and played directly after finishing Alan Wake. My initial reaction was “WOW what an improvement from the 2010 port!” The game feels like it was made for PC with crisp controls, optimized visuals and enhanced gunplay. The live action cutscenes do not look fuzzy (how a console to PC port normally looks). I like how it feels like a spinoff or a dream and the story is not nearly as complicated as the first game. Also the length is much shorter and can probably finished in under 3 hours.

American Nightmare has moved the environment from a forest area to the middle of the desert. The game has three major areas to explore, A Hotel / Rest stop, an Observatory and a drive-in movie theater all feel wildly more open and spacious rather than the confined pathway of the first story. This makes the gameplay much more action oriented rather than horror and Alan will even wield some automatic weapons and an automatic nail gun. So, there is many more enemies to dispatch and much more ammo needed. There’s never a dull moment in this game.

The main problem with American Nightmare is when finish the story, you realize this was minimum effort by Remedy Entertainment. Technical improvements aside, players are forced to revisit and replay the three areas, A Hotel / Rest stop, an Observatory and a drive-in movie theater, a total of three times each, because Alan Wake hasn’t completed the signal to get the “whole story”. And Alan needs to “whole story” to defeat his doppelganger boss dude in the final area. And each time you reach the final area, the player literally start from the beginning of the game and traverse through the same areas, talking to the same characters, playing a series of fetch quests. This makes the same super repetitive and frustrating. Sure, a new enemy is introduced in each of the three timelines, and if you have been paying attention and collecting the manuscripts, you can unlock new weapons as you play, but it’s not enough to hold interest. A 3-hour game is really 1 hour played three times.

Even after this major criticism, I still find the overall experience much better than the first game. The story is self-aware. It’s a quick romp. The number of cut scenes in between gameplay is limited (unlike it’s predecessor). It’s technically competent and can be finished in 2 play sessions. It does leave players wondering if we will ever see a true sequel to Alan Wake with modernized gameplay techniques.

A very good spin-off/sequel to first one. As the devs said themselves, this game is like a Quentin Tarantino movie where as the first one was a Stephen King novel. The game I think brings an apt closure to Alan's fight with the darkness and taken. Hopefully he's at peace now.

I hate games that dont tell you an action will end a chapter, especially when there are collectables to be collecting. I had one page left to find in the first area and after I found that I was going to be able to upgrade a weapon but NOPE!

I guess the devs think this is adding in some kind replay value. It isn't. It's adding in no-more-play value.

The game isn't very good, but I was enjoying it for what it was, but this completely ruined the experience. Too bad.

A sequel to an amazing game. It drowned the original amazing and wonderfully dark premise under shooter mechanics, mob spam and overall, it felt like and was the same four chapters over and over again. The first effect I felt of this was that I stopped reading the pages, stopped caring at all about the story and stopped being invested at all in any of the characters. The repetition and difficulty in making progress utterly smothered my enthusiasm and ultimately, smothered any fun I was trying to have. It felt lazily written and created. Why a story about a loop in time? Why make it so that you had to get pages for upgrades? Why just throw mobs and mobs and mobs at every turn? I gave up. I stopped believing there was any end to it all. I found myself counting the seconds to being utterly overrun by endless mob spam and returned to whatever save point I had shambled over to. Final Score: 3/10. They introduced a small handful of new characters that never developed and never felt like anything other than talking cardboard. It ground my love of the series into fine paste.

At first I was impressed by the improvements in the graphics and the gameplay compared to those of Alan Wake but then the game began to reuse its levels again and again.
What's fun in running through the entirety of each location 3 times to get the collectibles containing more of the story? Unlike the optional Nightmare difficulty in the original, these extra playthroughs are forced in American Nightmare.

Do yourself a favor and either avoid this game and catch up on the TV, radio and manuscript pieces online or get it and run straight to each of the objectives to experience about 3 hours of action.

Feels more like a DLC with better graphics than anything. Story mode took me 3 hours in nightmare, while exploring and getting all the manuscript pages in the first pass. Arcade mode is mostly kill as many zombie as you can in 10 minutes without dying. I would still recommend to play it if you liked the first one, but wait for a Black Friday sale maybe...

Alan Wake's American Nightmare is a short story, but deep within its manuscripts new truths are revealed that widen the universe that was originally created. With the introduction of new characters, I found that the plot of being stuck in a time loop actually helped me get to know them more as they attempted to come to grips with what was happening. The performance of Mr. Scratch through the television and cutscenes really contributed to making this a memorable presentation. While the gameplay can be hindered by inconsistent mouse sensitivity that is likely related to small changes in framerates, I was able to adjust my settings to keep the feeling of aiming balanced. There are new enemies that take on interesting forms, as well as a greater variety of weapons that are very refreshing. Beyond the story, the arcade mode is a solid addition where the real challenge begins. This may not be the full sequel that fans are waiting for, but it is an adventure that sets up a lot for what ultimately could come. If you are just as excited about that as I am, then remember to stay in the light. Game on.

[h1]This likely would fare better were it simply regular DLC for the main game.[/h1]
I'm not entirely sure I understand the thought process behind making things like this standalone. Presumably to allow people to buy it who do not have or are not interested in the main game. But then, looking at a semi-niche product like this, those people aren't gonna buy this either.

So first and foremost, this is ostensibly DLC for the main game.
Gameplay tweaks:
  • There are more guns. And the gunplay is improved.
  • The minimap displays more information.
  • Ammo and batteries refill at stations.
  • New enemy types. [spoiler]Not recommend if you have severe arachnophobia.[/spoiler]
  • The entire game, aside from the arcade mode, takes place on 3 open maps.
  • There are weapon chests that contain heavy weapons that you can only open after collecting a certain amount of manuscript pages. However, they are totally unnecessary. There is plenty of firepower elsewhere. Most of them open with just a few pages that you'll run into along the way anyways.


It's not super interesting that there are only 3 open maps that are not really worth exploring a great deal. This is exacerbated by the fact that the story, involving Mr. Scratch, puts Alan in a time loop and repeatedly has to come back to these places and perform the same tasks.
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2271595823
[spoiler]The time loop only occurs 3 times and different events happen each time. The characters aid Alan in the more tedious tasks setup by the first time loop.[/spoiler]

[h1]Just what is going on here?[/h1]
You might be thinking to yourself, why on Earth hasn't Alan written himself out of these horrible stories where everyone is dying. After all, it's his fault. They're his stories. Well, Mr. Scratch is the main problem. What this character is could easily be argued depending on what you believe is going on in the universe. There is a canon. However, I believe that canon has an amount of ambiguity that needs explanation. —
Alan posits that he cannot alter the story in his favor. He says this because there are rules of drama that need to be followed. As in, what you imply has more significance than the actual words you use. Because there are things out there that will use your words against you. What I think is going on here is that what people infer from non-explicit text or otherwise is simply out of your control. Or rather, out of Alan's control in this context. But don't read into that. ;)

As LeVar Burton would say: “You don't have to take my word for it.”

THE GIST:
It's not a great game. It's not really even a good game. But it's FAR from being bad. It's only a few hours long and arcade mode theoretically lasts forever until you get bored with it. I think it's appropriately priced for what it is.

[h2] Alan Wake’s American Nightmare [/h2]

[h1] Overview [/h1]

Light outshines Darkness. This game revolved around the fierce battle against Light and Darkness. The Yin-Yang plot of Light and Darkness. You play as Alan Wake, the champion of Light, whose only goal is to end the plots of his evil and dark double who calls himself “Mr. Scratch”. The whole journey is potrayed as a stand-alone episode of a Twilight Zone-esque Television Show called “Night Springs”.

[h1] Storyline [/h1]

The game has a very unique and interesting storyline. It’s not worth spoiling and I highly recommend playing the game to find out what happens. The spoiler free version of the storyline is as follows:

You take on the role of a renowned author and the chosen champion of Light, Alan Wake, who’s on a pursuit of tracking down and erasing the existence of his evil double who aims to eradicate Alan Wake and replace him, claiming all his properties from his identity to his wife while destroying the waves of darkness consumed monsters known as “The Taken” sent by Mr. Scratch. He faces a lot of challenges during this extermination pilgrimage. Will Alan Wake bring back light into the word, or be swallowed by Darkness? Play the game to find out!

In my opinion, despite being a horror game, it isn’t that scary. But that doesn’t mean it’s bad. I love the narrative aspect of the game and the nerve wrecking anxiety we feel when waiting for darkness consumed monsters to suddenly spawn out of nowhere who have the sole objective to end you.

[h1] Gameplay [/h1]

The way this game works is pretty different from other third person shooters. The camera is not positionedexactly behind the character, but slighty to one side. Pressing Tab would move the camera’s position from left to right and vice versa, enabling you to set the camera’s position according to the situation.

The gun mechanics is very simple and on point. They do have a decent collection of weapons from a pistol, Flare gun and SMGs to Assault Rifles, shotguns and Nail Guns. Your main weapon is your torchlight as without removing the darkness out of your enemies, bullets will deal no damage to them. There are also throwables like a flash bang, flare etc that prove to be useful whenever you get cornered. You start with a basic pistol, and you can unlock weapons by collecting Manuscript pages and unlocking chests using those.

Movement in the game is pretty smooth. I love how your dodges go in Slo-Mo whenever you successfully manage to dodge an attack. There isn’t much movement apart from the basic walking, sprinting, dodging and jumping. I had no problems in this field of the game as everything was smooth and perfect.

There are different varients in the enemies you face. Some are normal humans who are consumed by darkness, some are very fast and will try to flank, some split into two weaker versions of itself whe exposed to light, there are huge ones that carry some kind of spinning saw blade and there are spiders too! There is a lot of varients in the Taken you face, apart from the ones I mentioned too. In the beginning, you face the weak ones, but as you progress, the enemies increase in power and number. The ones I hate the most are the splitting one and the one that is a black mist that can possess an object and throws it at you which usually deals a lot of damage. The only way you can regain health is by walking into the Street Light’s lighting radius.

According to me, the game can be re-played as it has a very good storyline and also has collectibles. But I am sure not everyone would agree with me as the main story is kind of repetitive by itself. (You will understand why when you play the game.)

The game has an arcade mode where you can test your survival skills against waves of The Taken and using the weapons you unlocked in the story mode. The arcade mode is extremely challenging as beating your own score would be harder in the span of 10 minutes. If you play this mode in Normal difficulty, you would face waves of enemies that progressively become tougher. If you play it in Nightmare difficulty, the waves would be endless.

[h1] Graphics [/h1]

This game was released in 2012, so it’s really old. To be honest, the graphics are way ahead of its time. The game’s overall mood is dark as you are obviously fighting against the darkness. This setting hides the detailing, which proves to be an advantage to the game. One cannot really make out the exact details in the assets in the playable area. Hence, the game is visually appealing.

There is one thing in this game that blew my mind, most of the cut-scenes are not animated, but instead utilise real actors and shot the scene. It’s like watching a movie! It has been very well made and hats off to the devs for coming up with this idea. I had a hard time telling whether the cutscenes were detailed animations or real, but the climax of the game answered that question. I just loved this aspect of the game.

[h1] Pros [/h1]
  • Immersive Gameplay with an interesting storyline filled with suspense and plot twists.
  • Graphics are pretty good and way ahead of its time.
  • Fighting is challenging and requires fast reflexes.
  • Game has a replayability factor due to the precense of Collectibles and the very interesting story line.
  • Narration is very well done. The overall audio/music used in the game is actually useful during combat as it notifies you when the enemies are spawning or if there are any enemies left.
  • Gunplay is unique as you aim using the torch on your other hand. Funnily enough, your torch is the most important “weapon” you possess.
  • Arcade mode is fun and has a high replayability factor.


[h1] Cons [/h1]
  • The game is pretty short. I finished the game in around 3.5 hours.
  • The game has some bugs. Enemies literally disappeared in front of me sometimes. I am sure this was not intentional as I have neither shot at them nor was there a source of light nearby.


[h1]Tips to New player [/h1]

Never use the Nail Gun. The bullet drop is high and the weapon itself is pretty weak. Find enough Manuscripts to unlock the UZI as that gun is the best in the starting. I finished the game with the UZI and Shotgun only. Always watch your back. Enemies will spawn or creep up behind you, so you need to watch your back. Don’t try to be a hero and try fighting the Taken in close range, you would most probably meet your demise. There are several ways to kill the Taken apart from wasting bullets, so find other ways to get rid of them like shooting explosive barrels etc. Conserve ammo.

[h1] Verdict [/h1]

This was a unique experience I had. I really enjoyed the game that I finished it in under one day in 2 sittings. I really enjoyed the cut-scenes and the story. I highly recommend this game. Do not miss out on this must-play game!

This game is one of the best third-person shooter experiences I've ever had. I've played it before on Xbox, and the PC version looks (and feels) even better.
Sure, it's not as good as Alan Wake; don't expect to be playing Uncharted or Tomb Raider either.

The combat is pretty solid, the exploration is decent, the atmosphere is incredible (not even close to the OG's, however). The story is nothing to write home about, though...
But where this game truly shines is the Arcade Mode - it adds an incredible amount of replayability to a game that you would otherwise complete once or twice and uninstall.

8/10, not enough Sonic

P.S. Remedy, give us Alan Wake 2 please.

This should really be DLC for the main game as apposed to being a standalone title, however if you get it on sale it is worth it - even just for the arcade mode alone. 6.5/10

Improved gameplay, better visuals, and more weapon variety; but all at the risk of have a recycled map. Serisouly, this game makes improvements from the first game, but doesn't feel like it has much variety or anything of value to add, so it recycles locations to stretch run time and make it count for a separate game when in reality it feels like it should have been tacked on DLC. With that said I'd still recommend it. It has an interesting story, and some of the TV and radio stuff is funny or entertaining. Especially at the current sale price of $2 you'd be a fool not to grab it. It's about 4 hours of playtime and is a decent way to kill an afternoon.

Alan Wake is back in this short story from Arizona plains where he fights against the Darkness and its herald, evil Mr. Scratch (he is perfect!). Captured in his twisted reality you have to try your best to outsmart this insane fellow. There are three different locations, in each you have to save / protect a lady in distress and with their help you will be able to move on. Story is simple, but there is a fun twist to it. ;)

Gameplay wise it's still Alan Wake. You have your faithful flashlight and variety of weapons at your disposal to protect yourself against the old and new enemies. Fights were good, the bigger ones offered even a challenge. You will rarely run out of munition as there are stashes that replenish over time - I would love to have this in the main game, there you are always low on batteries and bullets. You also have a mini map which shows your goal and even those stashes and collectibles, which was great! Not only do these collectibles help to shape the story, they open better weapons in the challenges. After completing the main story you can try your survival skills in the Arcade levels, where you need to fight off the enemies till the dawn. After a few tries I was able to get even the hardest achievements on the Nightmare mode, so in the end it wasn't that hard. ;)

Even though this is a standalone game, I think you will enjoy it more if you have played the original game first as you will be familiar with the controls, enemies and the story so far. It was fun, easier than the main game, but I take it as a savory before the big anticipated sequel!! Yes, I am still hoping. ;)

It's a decent game, but completely underwhelming compared to the original Alan Wake, when it comes to atmosphere, story etc.

Just like the first game, Alan Wake's American Nightmare is a great game from start to finish. Atmosphere is haunting and fighting with Taken feels great. Graphics look nice. The story is well written, I liked the time loop concept. Gameplay is solid. My only problem with this game is that it is too short. You can finish it in one sitting. Other than that it is an amazing horror game.

Dont buy it. Just buy the original. Better combat, more content and a decent story. This game has none of that.

Got into Alan Wake due to it being related to control, and I liked this, even though its short, the weapons in here are awsome, I hope these will be seen in Alan Wake 2. I found the entire storyline of Alan Wake beyond interesting,m and not hard to follow, if one can figure out Evil Within's plotline, this series is easy.

Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is a spin-off and continuation of the first Alan Wake game.

The story is ok, but compared to its predecessor a little bit lackluster. Due to it being more combat focused (more ammo and a wider variety of weapons), it somehow looses a lot of the atmosphere which made the first game really enjoyable.

The game is not bad, but different!

Soo this game is basically action oriented Alan Wake, less horror & resources is more common

The control is wayy more fluid and fun than original alan wake

The story is nothing special, its there, but the usage of time loop was interesting.

If you like Alan Wake but with more gun blazing, then this game is for you

Every aspect of the gameplay is an improvement over Alan Wake. The shooting is more fun, plenty of ammo dumps, more guns, you can run for more than 3 seconds. The graphics are also crisper. But all the atmosphere has gone. And some people might not like the repetitive plot device. I enjoyed it. 7/10
