Rated 9 out of 10 by Ilikemycoffeeblack Gorgeously Grim!
I 'd like to say; this is one of the best games I've played in a long time. For those not familiar with this title; this is the second part (hence "Madness Returns.)
This approach to Alice's original story is twisted and dark, where Alice has been institutionalized in an asylum due to her parents death, receiving psychotherapy to help her cope with her deranged mind.
Now as Alice being in an altered state., Wonderland collapses into insanity as well...
- into the Game:
- Fighting system is very similar to God of war maybe old Devil may cry-ish which is awesome!
- Weapons are so fun yet very deadly, also there are variations of them, like the Vorpal cleaver, let the butchery begin!
- Music is just beautiful in a very obscure way
- Graphics., superb! the environments will immerse you into the now shattered world of Alice.
I must say this game is so much fun and done very cleverly, from puzzles to secret passages to even some mini games, this and much more make Alice: Madness Returns one to play and recommend.
(p.s it even made me register to a game site and write this review)
Rated 7 out of 10 by Atata Awesome but, we lucked out
To start this off, don't get me wrong I love everything that this game gives, the story, the plot, writing, graphics, physics, art, all awesome. I believe it deserves better reviews for it's potential but unfortunately I haven't played in far enough to give the best review.
I normally don't write reviews but, this game only started to bother me as soon as I bought it from here. You can buy the complete collection from ea store or the normal version for 360 or PS3, and get the dlc of the dresses, weapon, and original game, but the physical PC version is the only one that doesn't get dlc for the game. It seems very obvious to get the other versions or buy online but it seems too unfair when these things aren't noted, or included.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Cass164 Outstanding Game
This game blew my expectations Is totally amazing, grim, dark, scary.... The gameplay is a lot of fun very fun in fact and the graphics are very good.... You just have to try it there is no game like this one.... let me put it this way, did you enjoy the old school sega genesis? just imagine oldshool games like that with all modern technology and 3D animation and capability of modern technology, well the outcome will be this game, you will spend Hours glued playing it as i did since it is not as any game out there
Rated 9 out of 10 by FGFC820 Brilliant!
This game rules! Long live the Vorpal blade in the hands of Alice!
I love the cleverness that was put into this game, everything about it., from the storyline to character dialogue and world environments.
This game is so fun to play!. it's a must for anyone who ever thought of turning a kids tale into obscure and twisted version of it. reminds me of Burton's work... somehow...
Where are the rest of raving reviews about this game? (i guess everyone is just playing it instead of writing reviews).
Rated 0 out of 10 by AsthGuarNehjjheN I played the first Alice...
I played the first Alice from start to finish. I didn't particularly like the morbid blood and guts of the game but it is definitely a psychological thriller. It messes with your mind and forces you to think outside the box. It had really good graphics for its time and the visual effects were awesome. The game plays a lot like Tomb Raider with puzzles to solve and it was very interesting to say the least. I wouldn't however recommend you play this with the lights off...
Rated 4 out of 10 by NanaSuki This review is about the controls.
This game is beautiful in terms of graphics, but the controls for the pc are awful. PURE and simple. I'm sad that a game company would allow something like this to come out. The controls are abominable. The part where I have reached I can't even finish because it does not recognize a button press. And that's with controls on default! Do not buy this on PC. I regret doing it myself.
Rated 0 out of 10 by JadenXI FINALLY!
After 11 years of waiting, a sequel to the most amazing game I've ever played visually/environmentally is almost here. Now where is the Ultimate Platinum Super Collectors Madness $200 edition with tons of extras!? I must have it!
Rated 0 out of 10 by madmanmax the rebirth is upon us. FINALLY!
its about time someone reachs into the archives and recreates a master piece of such a long forgotten game. American Mcgees alice, though rather old, deserves to reintroduced to the gaming world.
