We've been waiting for Alan Wake for a long, long time, and after five years of build-up, Andrew Pfister finally got his hands on the horror title. Is its unique light-fighting gameplay, creepy atmosphere and intense action worth the wait? Andrew's preliminary word is "Without a doubt."

Between the dark outdoor environments and excellent audio, Remedy has definitely succeeded in creating that spooky vibe."
