Alan Wake

Alan Wake Achievements

Missed by a Mile

Perform a cinematic dodge 20 times.  

A cinematic dodge is when you press  and a direction on the left analogue stick at the same time a Taken swings for you. The camera will slow down and Alan will narrowly miss the attack. These are unbelievably easy to pull off. If you want, you can kill off two of three Taken when they spawn and do this on the one left over. Truth be told, you'll get it naturally in one playthrough. If by some chance you haven't, use one straggler of a Taken to get it on.

When you encounter an enemy (preferably one), hold LB and flick the left analog in any direction, just before the enemy attacks you. Note: you need to dodge a little earlier than you might think. You'll know you're successful if the action slows down. Do this 20 times.

I have an easy and quick way to accomplish this achievement. Face the Taken while you are slowly backing up. As the Taken approach you continue to back up and then dodge when they start to swing their axe. It is much easier to get the cinematic dodge to kick in when you dodge the Taken in this manner.
