I really liked Alan Wake. It had some annoyances but in the end I was left with an overwhelmingly positive feeling about it. Max Payne was more of a mixed bag for me; the cover system felt extremely out of place and jarring given how the first two played. Yet it still had flashes of brilliance that hearkened back to the previous games, which are two of my most favortite games of all time.
