“Alan Wake II” Review


It’s always risky when the hero of a video game series hands the reigns to someone else. For every time it’s worked (Marvel’s Spider-Man 2), there are just as many when it didn’t (Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty).

Thankfully, the third-person survival horror game Alan Wake II (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/SPC.) falls squarely in the former category by being just as much fun when Mr. Wake is missing as it is when he’s around.
