I can understand that. And to be honest, I hope the next game (if there is one) is more like the first one, too.
iippo: Whatever the case, i felt AN was huge let down after playing through the original Alan Wake and its bonus episodes. It just felt plain cheap on every level. I DID finish it, as i knew it was short and i had paid for it too ;) ...though i am seriously hoping if there is going to me more Wake, its more in the spirit of the first one (which is not perfect, but did quite much right).
EDIT: Just finished Tiny and Big: Grandpa's Leftovers. My reaction? A big, fat "Meh." The first couple of levels were okay. The mechanics were simple and the puzzles were getting a bit more challenging without being too hard. However, the third level was immensely annoying. The game's controls aren't incredibly precise, and trying to solve simple puzzles while under threat of death was in no way fun. The fourth and fifth levels were drag-- I honestly never knew a 2-hour game could out-stay its welcome. The sixth level wasn't particularly difficult, but its reliance on timing and having to start the whole level over every time I died (in-game, of course) made it almost frustrating.
I won't say the game is, on the whole, bad. The visuals ware nice, as is the music. But ultimately, I didn't really enjoy it. I think it would have been much better with a more expanded story and no death. A simple, visually-pleasing puzzler with great good music and a good story would have been much better.
