Return through the looking glass

Alice Madness Returns, is the sequel to American Mcgee's Alice. This game follows Alice years after the events of the first game and finds her receiving psychiatric help to forget about her family, who died in a fire, a fire she may have had a part in. But this help is even more damaging to Wonderland then anything from her last visit. now then how does the game look, feel, and play ? First off, the graphics. The graphics look great for the most part, using the Unreal engine, but at times the characters look a little weird, not bad but weird. The cuts scene look like a story book come to life, and look great, though I think fully rendered CG cut-scenes would have been better. The controls are very responsive and so is the camera. The sound and music are also quite good work well, thought the voice work is a little half and half. What I mean is The voice actors are good but they seemed to speak there lines kind of fast at times. Now there is plenty to see, and do in Alice Madness Return, plenty of collectibles to find , and you'll have a blast doing it, as you hack, slash and smash your enemies to bloody bits. So overall the game is a lot of fun to play, even though occasionally the platforming, which makes up a bulk of the game, can be a little frustrating at times (as most platforming can) , it's still a game you wanna play. A warning though, it can get extremely disturbing at times , especially towards the end of the game. Bottom line is, if like platforming games, blood filled disturbing games and if you liked the original ( which is included free on a new copy of the game, just not here at Gamefly) I recommend trying it and I give American Mcgee's Alice : Madness Returns , a score of 9 out of 10.

Anyone who is a fan of Alice in Wonderland and/or RPG games you'll love it. A sick and twisted version of Alice in Wonderland.

Fair

Pretty graphics for a pretty average game

Some of the most beautiful landscapes I've seen in a game. That being said, there was no discernable plot or fun gameplay at all.
