Fair

Boring and Uneventful...

The game looked good. But looks can be deceiving. I knew it was an action platformer (killing a bunch of enemies and jumping from moving block to moving block a lot), and I usually like games like that. This is an exception. I just wasn't having fun playing this game. It just seemed boring, and simple. The voice acting is monotone, at least for Alice, as she talks to herself...a lot. It's just mediocre at best. Linear levels, repetitive combat, uninteresting story, its just boring. I didn't like it, but I didn't hate it either.

Interesting concept...

I have not played the first, but was aware of the cult following it had. I decided to check out this game on it's premise alone, but unfortunately that's all it really offered. The storyline is the game's best aspect, as the gameplay is subpar. The worlds, although unique and colorful, are not what you would expect from a PS3 game. As a matter of a fact, all graphics are average at best besides the detail of Alice's character. Camera angles are poorly done making battling tough without physically locking on each enemy. If you try it and do indeed enjoy it, the length of the game offers a good play for the buck.

Pros:

Interesting story
Voice acting

Cons:

Poor use of camera angles
Gets repetitive
Battle mechanics could use some work
Glitchy in certain ponts

not a bad game overall, the hack-n-slash fighting was very nice, the only downfall was the amount of jumping and switches, more fighting and bosses and I'd give it a better score, other than that if you loved the previous game you will like this.... very dark, twisted, and pretty good graphics, a must for any alice fan :)
