If you missed our Alan Wake hands on preview from last month, check it out now and get our heads up on the title that was looking like it would never be.

Alan Wake has been a game that I've had on my radar since I got an Xbox 360 last Christmas. As a fan of the action adventure genre it looks fantastic. The setting looks great and the basic gameplay mechanic with the light is something that I've never seen before in videogames. I can't wait until May to finally get my hands on the game and start playing it!

This game just keeps getting better and better. I'm sure that long wait we have been waiting for will be worth it come May 18.

@ 2, yeah :P.

Alan Wake still reminds me of Stephen King's books.

Been waiting for this for a loooong time. The "WOW" factor has worn off but I'm still hoping to be blown away when I play it for the first time.

Looks like it is going to be more action focused. With the guns and the flares as such. I am disappointed.

@23 He hasn't really made any good films recently, and he has to pay the bills somehow.

@2, yes I think he looks a lot like Colin Farrell. In fact, for a once I thought Colin has been hired to provide voice over for some character in the game. I realised it later, lol
