Published on

Delayed a touch, owing to lack of review code and Xbox patches lagging behind other formats by a couple of days, we're happy to present our findings for the Xbox versions of Alan Wake 2, while also going into much more depth on what separates quality and performance modes, aside from resolution and frame-rate targets.

Meanwhile, Series S has resolution and quality cutbacks, but still seems to deliver a decent experience bearing in mind the reduced power available.
