It's been a long time coming, but Alan Wake 2 is actually here. The survival horror sequel promises a crazy level of cinematic quality, coupled with intense psychological scares. It's been getting some seriously impressive review scores, and much like Marvel's Spider-Man 2 did a week or so ago, it's stormed the ongoing Game of the Year conversation.
We called Remedy's latest "A nightmare we never want to wake up from" in our Alan Wake 2 PS5 review, awarding it an 'outstanding' 10/10 score — a real rarity, as our regular readers will know. "What Remedy has cooked up here is something special — a gust of fresh air aiming to revitalise video game horror," we wrote. "With stunning visuals, pitch-perfect tone and atmosphere, brilliant pacing, and a fascinating mystery to sink your teeth into, there are no twists or turns about it: Alan Wake 2 is an all-timer."
