Product Details:

Eleven years ago a horrific fire took Alice's family from her and left her mind horrifically scarred. Afterwards she was confined to Rutledge Asylum, where she struggled to confront her demons by slipping further into her fantasy world of Wonderland. Now, after ten years, she has finally secured her release - yet she still bears the heavy psychological burden of that tragic event. With her mind in tatters, she is unable to resolve the fear prompted by her strange memories, dreams, and visions. Perhaps she'll do better in Wonderland. She always has. She travels there, seeking what the "real" world can't provide: security, knowledge, and the truth about the past. But in her absence, Wonderland too has suffered. Something has gone horribly wrong, and now a great evil is descending upon what once was her beautiful refuge. Can Alice save Wonderland - and herself - from the madness that consumes them both?

  • Intense 3rd person action: Use multiple upgradeable melee weapons, including the explosive Teapot Cannon, the punishing Hobby Horse, and the classic Vorpal Blade.
  • Explore a dark and shattered Wonderland: Encounter familiar but now strange characters, including the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, the Caterpillar and the Red Queen.
  • Magical abilities: Obtain peculiar abilities in Wonderland such as floating with Alice's dress, shrinking, or growing to towering sizes in order to crush enemies.
  • Interactive puzzles: Intuitive and rewarding puzzles such as transforming obstacles, musical memories, chess, and picture blocks.

Game Informer Rating:

Rated 6.75 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark Beauty,Puzzle,Horror, Nonsense in 1 package This game was one of those games that really stick with you for a very long time. The art is beautiful and twisted. This game shines with dark beauty and nonsense that makes sense. Alice Madness Returns is the sequel to American Mcgee's Alice (originally on the PC but can now be downloaded for free off of PSN). I got away with skipping the first game and making sense of the second one. I tried to play the first game after completion of the second, but it is really hard with the way the controls are. Anyway back to Madness Returns... the game had a great story. Though I do feel it was a bit rushed and I wish that they would have had more cut scenes and more in depth situations about the characters. Those parts seemed flat. I absolutely fell in love with the weapon system, it was unlike anything I have ever seen or played in my life. Some may argue that the game play was too easy, well I argue maybe but it was just right for me. I play games more so for story not so much for game play. The game did require strategy on which weapon to use and when. I loved that aspect of critical thinking you had to use. My favorite weapon was definitely the Hobby Horse; it was always so exciting to get an upgrade and see what it would look like next. The soundtrack of this game is spectacular. I even bought it on Itunes and listen to it from time to time. The music sets a theme in the game that really immerses you in. The scenery, the costumes, and the weapons all are so beautiful. Alice is a very interesting character, because she has mental illness but does not let it make her weak. Very inspirational for our generation because most of us give strength to our weakness rather than giving strength to our strength. Alice is very inspirational. Give this game a shot, buy it pre-owned, and if you do not like it you can return it in 7 days for a full refund. I am hoping for a third game, there has been talk of it, but EA games feels it would not be profitable. So maybe if American Mcgee's Alice series gets big enough as of now it may just have a fighting chance at a 3rd game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun enjoyable but not a ten Madness has some plus qualities, some negative, and some normal qualities. Madness's strong suite to me is its combat. Its combat is pretty easy.( I upped my difficulty to hard a bit over halfway through the game, if you want a challenge in the early stages you'll have to do this.) It consists manly of using R2 to dodge incoming attacks. The game goes slow-mo and you dodge this of course leads to you gleefully cutting into them. Overall when there's combat its fast and fun. Collectibles. To be honest, i went insane with them. I checked each and every corner. I enjoyed doing that... for a while then i just wanted to play the game. Despite this good stuff there are some negative aspects. For starters between the enemy's being generally easy, and your high health its hard to die. this means there's no real risk when you get into a fight. Also, there is only a final boss, there are no unique bosses for each stage. The normal. I'll start by saying i don't play a lot of platformers. I found Madness's platforming to be exciting at times though most of the the time it was...normal.. The platform is basic. You can jump three times and hover. Using this and mushrooms that bounce you into the air you jump through the levels with little risk to yourself. Even if you fail the jumps you'll just respawn on a platform without losing health. There are obstacles but they are rarely if ever jaw droppingly hard.The second normal. I did find the story interesting enjoyed it a bit but it is not overly compelling.By the end i was neither greatly for or against Alice. Overall i did enjoy playing Madness or at least the first two thirds of it. I went obsessive in finding collectibles, found the story interesting, and found the platforming a bit exciting i guess what i want to say is this, I enjoyed madness. I didn't enjoy the last portion of the game because i wanted to be done with it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Wonderful! This was the first video game I purchased when I got my PS3. I just love the storyline, it has almost a brain-teaser quality to it. The graphics were admittedly not the strongest point, but it was still a beautifully horrifying depiction of wonderland. The psychological implications of the characters and the landscape are very interesting, this game really makes you think about Alice's shifting psychological state throughout the story. Overall, this game is perfect for anyone who wants to play a game that not only makes you think about how to complete the game, but also how to understand it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic This game is like a twisted version of the old animated movie Alice in wonderland. It Is quite fun and unpredictable and will keep you at the edge of your seat for over 19 game play hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game The game play is great, lots of things to collect and upgradable weapons, and the crazy scenery and artwork one of a kind game. I beat the game on easy, started a normal mode and alot more enemies to encounter and more boss fights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insanely Creative This game is absolutely amazing! Great graphics,sound and beautiful levels. I love the weapons and the levels are horrific. Scary yet satisfying. I would not reccomend this game to beginners and younger children. Everything is perfect about this game. My only problem is that her dresses don't come in my size!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Alice: Madness Returns proves unique and fun It is refreshing to get a unique concept game, like Alice: Madness Returns. What is cooler than a psychotic Alice weilding a knife and pepper-shaker gun? The concept and various stages are very cool. The dialogue and overall audio is week. The character roaming capabilities are very week. I hope to see a new Alice game down the road.
