Critic Reviews for Alan Wake 2: Night Springs

Alan Wake II: Night Springs veers from ultra violence to tense survival horror, before settling into the multiversal madness of the series at its best.

The universe of Alan Wake 2 grows with a small collection of original and fun ideas, which play with the unexpected, humor and "the impossible". A little genius that will not taste like much, and that has its biggest flaw in the reuse of the base game's scenarios.

Where some teams would stay safe in their additional downloadable offerings, building on the foundation laid by the full game, Remedy has gone wild. This is exactly the kind of episodic content I'm looking for. While I'm sure the upcoming Lake House DLC will further our connections to Control, I'm glad Remedy took the time to make something wholly unique, which is what that studio is.

With its three entertaining scenarios showcasing Remedy Entertainment's narrative and visual design prowess, the Alan Wake 2: Night Springs expansion is a more than worthy DLC for all fans of the base game and the Finnish developer, provided they can keep their expectations in check. The expansion's short length, a little over two and a half hours, and its stripped-down gameplay will inevitably disappoint those looking for something more substantial.

Three new stories set in the Alan Wake multiverse, starring alternative versions of familiar faces. Survival horror, unlikely love stories, caffeinated zombie-cultists and meta-humour condensed into three hours of multiverse gameplay, a condensed distillation of Remedy's signature madness.

All in all, Night Springs is a short excuse to revel in the oddities of Alan Wake 2 and Remedy. Whether it's comedic, horror-tinged, or genre-hopping, the developer is just having loads of fun with this DLC. We'd love it to be a little longer, or perhaps even include another episode or two, but what's here is a reminder that Remedy is one of the most original and unique developers in the game right now.

Alan Wake II: Night Springs is a terrifically twisted, episodic DLC collection for one of 2023's best video games.

Perhaps these attempts distorted reality enough that Alan could build on them and eventually escape, and perhaps these attempts reflect Remedy’s own struggle in crafting what would become Alan Wake II. I wrote that “North Star” could have been a Control prototype— and maybe it was. It still exists as a part of the story, and Remedy showing that to us feels special. It feels incredibly novel that a game’s DLC exists to thematically bolster itself, rather than solely provide additional entertainment. Night Springs does both, and furthers the metanarrative spiral of the base game. In the end, I shut up and trusted Remedy, and I’m ready to do it all over again whenever the second expansion, The Lake House, arrives.
