Alan Wake (Special Edition) (Games, PC) Price: Rs.699

Third-person shooters are similar to first-person games except that in them, you are able to see the protagonist in entirety performing the actions that you engineer. Alan Wake is a third-person psychological horror game. The game has been developed by Remedy Entertainment and has been published by Nordic Games. The game has been designed for the PC and also for the Xbox. Alan Wake 1.06 is the version released for the PC with Sam Lake and Mikko Rautalahti as its writers.

The game takes place in a fictional town near Washington called Bright Falls where bestselling thriller writer Alan Wake encounters a mysterious disappearance involving his wife. He finds that his wife has disappeared when on vacation to Bright Falls and also finds that whatever he wrote about in his latest book, is coming true. He finds it odd that he has no memory of writing the book from which all the events seem to come alive. Alan Wake is paced exactly like a thriller series on television. Every episode in the game and its story has twists in its plot and possible cliffhangers. Two special episodes in the game are available as DLCs which are The Signal and The Writer.

The game was under production for over five years, which in the gaming industry is a really long time. The ingenuous narrative of the game has had many positive reviews from critics all over for keeping the player fully engaged in gameplay. The main story revolves around a mysterious darkness that has taken over the residents of Bright Falls and turned them into monsters known simply as the Taken.

These enemies have a shield of darkness around them that acts as a protective armor. For them to take any amount of damage, the darkness infused shields have to first be burned away. The game environment provides many places where torches and fresh batteries for those torches are available. The player is also actively encouraged to use environmental light sources to keep the darkness away.

When standing under streetlights the player is impervious to attacks as the Taken cannot enter well lit areas of the game. This gives you the opportunity to regenerate health at a faster pace. Another major aspect of the game, connected to his amnesia about ever writing a novel called Departure is finding the manuscripts of the book scattered about the areas of Bright Falls. Alan Wake reads the events and plot twists in the book and is unable to remember writing it, even though he is aware that it is his own work that he holds in his hands. The Special Edition PC game Alan Wake received a PEGI rating of 16 for mild violence. 

Special Edition contains:

  • Alan Wake Game
  • 2 DLCs "The Writer" and "The Signal" Episodes inside the Game.
  • 8 Soundtrack CD 

The above special edition contents are included inside the box.

@Shan

Before you start blaming Steam...its an excellent service firstly.

To install from DVD you have to run the Setup file from you DVD 1.

Put DVD in your drive & run autorun.exe. If you already have steam installed it must be closed.

You do not log into Steam & enter keycode directly...the game will install first on your drive through DVD...then Steam will launch (dvd will install it if its not present on your PC)..you enter the keycode & Steam will verify your game files which got installed from DVD (takes 2-3 minutes)

Then Steam will patch the game automatically if there are any patches.

You can't be serious if you say you downloaded 7GB thats your fault...a patch is maximum 100MB-2GB.

I have 20+ retail games on my Steam & this is the procedure to follow.

If you don't know what you're doing don't post misleading reviews about Steam to prevent people from playing this excellent game.

Besides mostly all games require Steam type services these days...EA has Origin...other games use Games for Windows Live & Rockstar use Social Club.

Yes Steam takes a while to start if you close it but its a minor hiccup..Steam is to PC what Xbox Live is to Xbox 360.

If you dislike Steam then there isn't any other option for you other than to consider console gaming.

Regarding the packaging box not present you shouldn't have used it & contacted flipkart if it arrived in bad condition...flipkart would always help you out on that.

Cheerio! ;)

masterpeice by remedy now on pc

I had played this game on xbox 360 in 2010 and decided to get again for pc as now i have decent gaming rig.
my specs are :
i3 2100 3.10 ghz
4 gb corsair 1333hz ram
sapphire hd radeon 7850 2gb ddr5.

i can play this game on ultra max settings and it runs smoothly
i get around 50 to 60 frames as per fraps application in game @ 1080p and cutscenes are 60 fps 720p

the graphics are quite good , if you own a gaming pc and have not played this game then get it for sure.
if u have xbox and have played on xbox and have gaming pc i say still get it.

i got this from flipkart @damn cheap 699
it came with 2 disc one with game and dlc and one with audio cd.
beware it has steam activation and u have to download 7.5 gb update to play it, u cant play without steam.

overall must buy @price.

Alan Wake (PC)

The PC version of the famous Alan wake by Microsoft Studios bring something new and a bit different.
The presentation of the game itself should be the selling point. Every chapter is presented as a new episode and every episode ends with a mind bending twist or revelation.
I was disappointed that it only had 5 chapters, but that does not mean that it's a short game. Every chapter (other than the first one) takes more than 90 minutes to complete, atleast it did for me because of my lame skills.
The story is very engaging and the concept of hurting the dark ones in light is something I loved. Its an unforgiving game and there are number of times where you cannot kill every enemy. This is in Normal difficulty and I would not like to imagine what it will be in Nightmare difficulty.

So all in all, if you love games or just want something to kill some time, this is a must buy. I have already pre-ordered american nightmare because I would like to know how the story unfolds.

Shan isn't incorrect in what he said, though this the retail special edition and excellent service by flipkart as well!!!!!!!

So i just got it today, and I'm sure this is the budget version released for india as it's just a cardboard box with the two cds in polythene wraps. This does not mean its fake, however, as I successfully activated it via steam! However installation is another matter, shan was right it doesnt install the game automatically, only steam is installed. However you dont have to download the entire 7.5 GB, Luckily I found a solution Online. Follow these steps and youre good to go, no download needed:
Using Steam launch options to install retail games from disc:
1. Log in to Steam and click on Library.

2. Right-click on the game, select Delete local content, and confirm.

(I found that post steam Installation, I had to skip the above two steps as the game wasnt installed hence was not recognised by steam, follow above 2 steps only if the game appears in your library. FOLLOWING STEPS ARE COMPULSORY FOR ALL)

3.Insert the first disc into your computer.

4.Close Steam (Steam > Exit).

5.Press Windows Key + R to open Run
In the Run window type:

"C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe" -install E:

Replace E: with the CD/DVD drive you are installing from if is not correct.
Replace C:\Program Files\Steam if your Steam installation is not in the default location.

6.Press OK. Steam will launch and ask you to sign in if you do not have your password saved. Your installation should continue from the disc. (Here it will ask for your key and will hence activate the product)

Excellent Service by flipkart, nordic games and steam could do better. Installation is really confusing

Very quick delivery by dealer.

I'm very satisfied by Flipkart's service. I received the game just a day after I ordered it. Steam took a while to get used to since I am using it for the first time, but it's a great feature in the end. The reviewers helped me to avoid the 7gb download from steam and instead just install it from the disc with a 200mb update from steam.

Game stated that my laptop just made the minimum requirement for the game, i.e., I can't play on high settings and have to switch v-sync off. I was caught off guard as I just bought this laptop. My thoughts were put to rest when 5 minutes later I was playing the game at the highest settings possible without any problems. So if you get such a message, just ignore it. It'll most likely mean the opposite.

Pros-
Great thrill
Moderate Graphics even at highest settings
Story reminds me of Silent Hill 2 in some way (which is the best horror game yet)

Cons-
Very cheap quality cover box
Steam (for those using it for the first time)
Game might give out false warnings about system not meeting minimum requirements.
