Alan Wake’s American Nightmare Achievements

Put on your reading glasses, because Alan Wake is in another predicament. This time, the darkness takes the shape of Mr. Scratch, a devious doppelganger that only wants to see Alan Wake dead, and he’ll employ a host of new monstrous enemies to make that happen. Luckily, Wake isn’t going to lay down without a fight, as he’ll have access to new weapons like the Crossbow and Uzi. To up the challenge, every level features an unlockable arcade mode where Wake must survive against the evil hordes until morning. Think you’re ready to stay awake?
