Alan Wake Update

I finished my non-achievement seeking play through of Alan Wake today.  Alan Wake only has one game mode, so to complete this play through, I played the game on the “normal” difficulty setting.  While the game isn’t a cakewalk, it’s not particularly challenging on normal mode either, so this was pretty easy to finish.  Alan Wake has a great story and I had a lot of fun playing it, but I’ll get more into that when I write my review.

I unlocked 29 of the 50 (without DLC) achievements for a total of 465 gamerscore.  The achievements I unlocked are:

  1. Departure
