IGN have just posted up an awesome hands-on preview of our upcoming XBLA title, Alan Wake's American Nightmare!
Fighting a single Taken in Alan Wake was exciting. So finding yourself surrounded on all sides by the evil creatures in the middle of the desert marks a new kind of scary. Can you survive the encounter? The landscape, enemy count, and hulking-size of American Nightmare's enemies make claustrophobia a fear of the past.

The Top Xbox 360 Games of 2012 - 1UP.com"Remedy has changed the linear structure of the 2010 game into a more open hub area for players to snoop around, shoot weird enemies in, and puzzle over metafiction/game puzzles. It's cool when talented developers such as Double Fine and Remedy shift from lengthy development cycles to smaller games, so that we get more than one game every six years."
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare Preview - Planet Xbox360"If you enjoyed Alan Wake in any way at all (just like we did), then American Nightmare is easily required playing when it comes out for Xbox Live Arcade’s House Party next month."
CES 2012 Hands On: Alan Wake: American Nightmare - AggroGamer"At which point I found out that the single player campaign is another 5-6 hours of story based on Alan's first show he wrote for. More or less an episode from the show that takes place in Arizona with new creatures and environments."
