Very Good

Visually stunning game.

I would have to say that this is probably one of the most visually stunning games that I have ever had the pleasure to play! I seriously would have to stop several times in game to just look at all of the amazing world levels. Being a fan of steam punk, I nearly fainted that the styles of the characters, costumes, and music. The platforming can be a bit difficult at times, however the controls are very natural and do not become super overwhelming, but at times can even challenge an expert player. My only beef with the game was the relentless platforming with some levels that would never seem to end. That lost my interest in continuing playing the game, along with my patience. Otherwise I would give this a much higher rating.

Alice "The Madness Returns"

This was a fun game. It is a continuation of the old Alice PC game. The old PC game is available for download, but if you purchase it you MUST have the New Alice Disc in your machine to play it. Which sucks if your renting it from gamefly and dont want to keep the game longer, just to be able to play what you have already payed $10 for. The graphics are good, and the Art is FANTASTIC!! The gameplay is smooth, but after a while it is just alot of levels where you have to get from one side of the screen to the other, via jumpng from platform to platform, searching for extra stuff along the way. There are four main weapons, which can be upgraded 3 times each, although the upgrades dont really give you anything extra but looks. The main story only lasted around 10 hours of gameplay, so good for renting. Replay value is low, but first time play is recommended if you like dark, and twisted games. Creepy game, but not really scary or overly violent.

This game has everything going for it: interesting story, beautiful atmosphere, decent platforming, and thoughtful combat--however, the game drags on for too long. Usually that's not a bad thing, but the game feels very repetitive; you are forced to repeat the same actions over and over again. The game is definitely worth a play, but you may not have the patience to finish the entire playthrough.
