Is PC your only option? If you have a 360, I'd track Alan Wake down for $5 used. $20 seems a little steep for such an old game.

It's a pretty good game though. Definately worth checking out.

Retro City Rampage - Pretty much what you'd expect. It's basically the original GTA, with a few more bells and whistles. It's got many(almost too many) references to games of the 8-bit era, that will either leave you grinning, or cringing. Overall, it's the game's sense of style that is it's strong point. Where it kind of falls apart, is in the actual gameplay. Some of it works great, and some of it is absolute dogshit. The difficulty spikes are all over the place, and this is where you'll start to care less and less about how "cool" it all is, and start to curse, an slam your controller to the ground, at how ball-bustingly hard some of the missions are. It's not challenging in a good way either. It's challenging because of the shitty controls, and unfair enemy groupings. After a while, you start to feel like it's really not worth the effort.

Overall, the game is a novelty item. At first, it's cool to look at, and deceptively clever, but it all wears off pretty fast. If only they had spent the same amount of time working on the gameplay, as they did the pop-culture references.
