I suppose Alan wake is like mafia 2 (another underrated game) you either love it or hate it.
I felt that considering both the amount of initial marketing hype it received and the time spent in development it was a surprising linear adventure. It was enjoyable enough, don't misunderstand me, but it wasn't revelatory. It felt to me a game that had unfulfilled ambition.
LA Noire falls somewhat into the same category for me, although for different reasons.
I don't like Resident Evil at all so would agree that it didn't deserve high scores.
