Alan Wake 2 is a horror masterpiece. A strong claim, but one we stand by - we’re obsessed with Remedy’s meta-as-hell psychological horror freakout: the tonal shifts, the staggering visuals, the collision of worlds and artistic mediums! Alan Wake 2 on PS5 truly has it all, so join Ash for this celebration of what makes Alan and Saga’s journey one of the most insane games of 2023.
If you’ve read any Alan Wake 2 review you’ll know this is one of the year’s highest rated games - a fact acknowledged by its nomination for game of the year at the 2023 Game Awards. Ash will have everything crossed for Alan on the night and is here to explain why. There are few other PS5 horror games like Alan Wake 2, especially in the way it mixes cutting edge graphics with live action film, creating a soup of genre influences we can’t help but wolf down.
We’ve kept the video spoiler-free by focusing our Alan Wake 2 gameplay to the earlier chapters of the game. Alan’s adventure is so packed with weird and wonderful sights it would be hard to spoil them all. And if you watch this video and would like to know more about Remedy brought this haunting vision to life, check out Ash’s interview with the mighty Sam Lake - you’ll be seeing a lot of his face in the game, so this is a good chance to get to know his horror influences: https://youtu.be/OflSQp7VIu0
