Remedy has finally managed to bring back Alan Wake with the release of Alan Wake's American Nightmare, an Xbox Live Arcade title which is easily on par with other triple A games out there. The graphics engine is still pretty impressive, except maybe in daylight sequences. Combat-wise, nothing particularly new under the sun of Arizona, so no need to spend hours learning new techniques. It is however impossible to weaken an enemy without using the batteries of your torchlight now - which makes us wonder if the Southwest of the US only provides poor quality batteries. If you still haven't made up your mind about purchasing the game or not, take a look at our three videos inside.
But they haven't stayed consistent. In BF1 the best vanilla SMG is *by far* the hardest to unlock. (10 Hours ago)
Example: the best AR in BF3/4 is the AEK and it's one of the first guns you unlock in both games. (10 Hours ago)
@Tinks: Right.. a lot of their unlocks avoid this issue by putting all the best stuff at the front of the unlock tree. (10 Hours ago)
the unlock rate is bad when it means gaining perk advantages against others with less playtime. (11 Hours ago)
and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (17 Hours ago)
@MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (17 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (17 Hours ago)
