Alan Wake Achievements

Achievements Action News Xbox 360 Microsoft

~~Warning: Some Spoilers~~

Below is the list of achievements found in Alan Wake. A huge chunk of them are story related, while another huge chunk is for collecting achievements. The collecting achievements are not that difficult since the game keeps track of how many you have collected, and the episodic gameplay lets you jump to any level to collect on it. The levels are long, but luckily they are also split into sections for much more ease. The hardest achievement will be beating the game on Nightmare due to the enemies being stronger, but it is still manageable. Overall the achievement list is pretty good, and all of them are manageable.

  1. these are interesting i am going to have to pick this game up down the road

  2. I always like these achievements where the game incentives the player to look for something, like those manuscripts.

  3. I will get this game… or maybe I’ll hire it first. Looks interesting. 😉
