I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this game, I had not played the original game, but the idea of exploring Wonderland with a knife wielding Alice intrigued me. I have read some reviews of people complaining about game length, as for me, I enjoy the longer chapters because I feel that I am getting more game this way. The control setup is easy to use and follow, the weapons are clever and the story is interesting to say the least.

Graphically, I do expect more from a PS3 game, however, the gameplay makes up for that as I found myself exploring every nook and cranny of Wonderland in search of pig snouts.

If you are a fan of the action/adventure genre than I would recommend this game to you.

All I've seen is a bunch of nay-say about this game.... It's really not that bad... In fact, It's a lot of fun.... The great art design keep you wanting to press on... It feels like a PC port and that's not necessarily a bad thing.... It has a very forgiving platforming element.... The fighting is fun except for a few camera issues... This game has a few bugs that could be worked out with a good update... But not enough to keep you from playing....
Give it a chance, that's what Gamefly is for.... Right?

Fun but Glitchy.

Im really enjoying playing this game. Its both imaginative and fun. The graphics are good at times and glitchy and blocky looking at others. I think if they had spent a little more time there the game would have been amazing. as far as game play, it will pass time and its enjoyable, but by the time you get to the third or fourth chapter you realize your basically doing the same stuff over and over again, theres nothing new or different but the look of the chapter. Sometimes you have to start REALLY far back when you die which can be more then frustrating, most of the time it wasnt too bad. My biggest issue with the game was the glitch thing. You fight and get stuck places and cant move. The biggest annoyance was some of the timed jumping/puzzles. I found myself knowing what needed to be done but unable to get Alice to jump getting stuck inside blocks ect ect... i only wish Alice moved as quickly as she did when in the middle of combat. The other thing I didnt like was the target lock locks onto enemies that cant be destroyed, then you got 5 others that can be but you have a hard time getting to them.
Although the difficulty with some things I loved this game. It really is so much fun. I really hope they make another, I'd buy it.
