I got the game and played it for about an hour but some parts are confusing and hard.I would recomend it for kids 8 and up because I don't think kids under 7 would understand,plus the game is for kids 10+.Its fun for the family but I think more fun by your self. I anjoyed this game and hope you enjoy it too.

I wish I could say that this game was semi interesting, but I can't. I think it was just as bad, if not worse, than the movie. The game is so simple that my child (she is not very good at handling Wii games) was able to beat the game like nothing.

The only thing that has me curious about the game version of Alice in Wonderland is why the keep making the same mistakes here as in other movie based title games.
What sort of mistakes are we looking for? First off, the camera - it is hard to control, which makes combat between our heroes and the cards very difficult. I would’ve like to see some sort of manual lock on for this game; this would really help with some of the special abilities of the characters.
Then, there’s the switching characters part. There are up to six characters for you to cycle through, and in some spots, you have to find the right character very quickly.
It would have been better if two characters were tossed out (the mouse fighter and Cheshire Cat I vote for), and assigning the other four characters to one of the four spots on the control pad. One tap of the thumb and you get the right character on screen - rather than having to tap the C Button several times.
Then, there’s the levels - that go on and on and on. I know people find it fun to smash things and open chests, but the joy didn’t last long for me - I go the same thing almost every time, some currency to spend on special abilities.
But not all is bad in Wonderland; I really liked some of the puzzles presented here, most notably the ones that highlight the Mad Hatter’s perspective power.
And the voice acting is very good - but some lines are repeated far too often.
As for the story presented here, it doesn’t do the movie any justice; there’s really no heart or soul on display here. It’s like they made the game just to make a buck off the movie’s buzz.
Die hard fans of the movie will probably buy the game, but let’s make something clear: If you see the Alice in Wonderland, the movie, you DO NOT have to buy or play Alice in Wonderland, the game. SKIP IT.
