Rating Summary
This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of Alan Wake, a writer in search of his missing wife at a lakeside town. As players explore the town and surrounding woods, they can interact with characters, solve puzzles, and battle humanoid shadow creatures known as the "Taken." Players use various light sources (e.g., flashlights, floodlights, flares) to weaken enemies, and use pistols and shotguns to kill them; enemies generally disappear amid flashes of embers and shadows when defeated. Cutscenes also depict acts of violence: an ax-wielding character killing a person off-screen; a man shooting himself off-screen. In one sequence, a long blood trail can be seen leading up to a wounded character. Some characters are depicted smoking cigarettes and drunk from alcohol, with slurred speech (e.g., "I feel like my brain is coming out of my nose. I'm gonna get the recipe off those kooks and be a, a, a booze millionaire!"). The words "sh*t" and "a*shole" are heard in the game.
