Alan Wake is interesting because despite its numerous horror elements (and obvious homages to King and Lovecraft), it bills itself as "A Psychological Action Thriller". Viewed from that lens, it does its job pretty well - there's lots of action, and in the second half of the game there isn't even any horror left as even Alan and his buddy start joking about the enemies they face.

To its credit, Alan Wake has a way of keeping you on the edge and making you feel uncomfortable in every single fight, no matter how repetitive.
