Can you explain us why?
If I liked l4d2 this will be a good buy?

This game is nothing like L4D, while it's basically a shooter the controls are different. You'll have to get used to the (3rd person) camera angle and dodging mechanics. This game has a really great story if you're into supernatural/mysterious stories. At least, I personally found the story to be much more interesting than what you see in most other games. The gameplay could have been better but I don't remember encountering any bugs. For this price, I think it's now at it's cheapest (on steam, humble bundle was ofc even cheaper but that was a 1time only) and definetely worth it. The game takes between 10-20 hours depending on how much you like to explore and find stuff which I won't spoil here. When you finish the story there are also a few DLC chapters (included by default) to add some extra explanation to the story.

Must buy, simply because of the story and awesome voice acting.

I played through the new Tomb Raider not long ago, and all I could think about is how much more I enjoyed Alan Wake. Better story, and so much more exciting. Genuinely scary too at parts.

It's insulting people are even asking whether an AAA game at $3 is worth it. FFS people....

In the interest of adding a contrasting opinion:

No, this is not worth $3. The game had a lot of potential but the story falls apart, the ending was incredibly disappointing, and the combat is poor at best. Forget the $3 cost, I wish I had never wasted the time I invested in finishing this game.

It's like a chick flick with a bit of horror.

Just because its an AAA game does not mean it a is a good game. Just look at CoD.....

It's a solid action-FPS, not worth the full price but still enjoyable on multiplayer, I don't get your point.

It's cool to hate on things that are popular. Sheep mentality.
