Probably my favourite game of the moment. It ties in everything from Remedy. Lots of Max Payne, Control and (obviously) references to Alan Wake 1 and its DLC.

The game is technically amazing, cosmetically beautiful and extremely interesting to navigate. The actual 'game' part of it (shooting, etc) is probably its weakest point, but it can be forgiven for its narrative. And its weirdness.

Thats it. Its also really weird.

Play the game!

Oh - if you're on PC, this game is a bit of a nightmare as it is so demanding. Unless you've got a ridiculously up to date and high-spec'd system... If you turn Ray Tracing off, it still looks really great and runs like a dream. Turn it on, and everything tanks. But I leave it on, as its kinda got that cinematic feel when its around 30fps which I'm enjoying with this game.

The first game is good - for it's time. Honestly it's a bit jarring to return to, even the recent remaster. It controls quite like the early Max Payne games, with that orbital camera style.

I would say to fully enjoy the AW2 experience, you should at least have knowledge of the rest of the RCU (Yep.. they have a name for the Remedy connected universe).

Buuuut.. not essential. A lot of things will go over your head, but the game itself can still be enjoyed and the narrative... Well. Even if you are aware of everything it is still really hard to make sense of it. That's just the kind of game it is. :bellissimo:
