XBLA Wednesday: February 22nd, 2012

By Mark Delaney, 5 years ago
Week two of the XBLA House Party features the release of what generally appears to be the most anticipated of the four games involved, based on community discussions (and probably my own fanboyism).

Alan Wake's American Nightmare - 1200 MSP
In this brand new standalone experience, Alan Wake fights the herald of darkness, the evil Mr. Scratch! A thrilling new storyline, hordes of creepy enemies, serious firepower and beautiful Arizona locations, combined with a fun and challenging new game mode make this a must for Alan Wake veterans, and the perfect jumping on point for new players! Play the full-fledged Story Mode, and you’ll be on the edge of your seat as you fight to stop your murderous evil double to take back your life... and change reality itself! But there’s more to this nightmare – in the action-packed Arcade Mode, you’ll need to master the Fight with Light mechanic to stay alive until dawn and beat your friends on the Leaderboards. Can you survive until sunrise?
