    It took me about 7 hours in total from start to finish, That is with me watching every tv show, listening to the radio fully & exploring the areas.

    Great XBLA title, Really enjoyed it & Mr Scratch is so badass!

        How do you track how many radios you found?

        EDIT: Never mind, found it.

                Story mode took me about 6-7 hours - that is with the looking around and whatnot. I liked the story a lot, though I tired of replaying the same sections three times. Sure, they did a pretty good job of changing it up, but I could've used more locals to keep it fresh. I never felt a connection to any of the NPCS in this one, as we did Barry in AW. Of Course, the main drawn is the Alan Wake story elements.Side note: I was hoping Mr Scratch would have been a more direct Boss Fight.

                That said, I cannot say I was disappointed for $15 - pretty damn good deal, overall. I did miss some of the more dynamic weather elements that were in AW. They were kinda present here, but only if you deviated too far from the main path
                Looking forward to more Alan Wake

                    (in reference to early page) The only way it could be 2 hours is if you completely ignore any and all radios, manuscript pages, televisions, and optional talks with side characters and simply blast through the story, running constantly and not stopping. And even then, the lack of pages would mean a lack of good weapons, which would make it take longer anyways. So 2 hours would just mean you didn't want to actually play the game and just ran to the end.

                    I give it a 9/10. Good writing, solid acting (you can really tell that Ilka had fun as Mr. Scratch), and enjoyable gameplay with enough extras to make the storyline feel like it was worth its own release, and the arcade mode is also really enjoyable.

                            Metacritic is at 76 They must have some crack babies reviewing this game to give it low scores.

                              I never understood why todays gamers think 7.6 is a low score. Anything above 5 is good, in all logic. The reviewers aren't on crack, they just have their own opinion. Instead of looking at the score, you should read the review. The score is actually completely pointless.

                                Does it have all the reviews that have been posted in this topic? No way it could have that score with those. Not that 76 is bad.
