28 October 2011
  • Excerpt: I'm not sure I should like Alice: Madness Returns as much as I do. Spicy Horse's Xbox 360, PS3 and PC follow-up to 2000's original twisted tale at times feels a few months of QA Testing away from release, graphically struggling to compete with anything that's hit stores in the last two years, and...

  • Excerpt: There have always been many sides to the Alice in Wonderland fairy tale. There's the loving, happy Disney version, the slightly skewed book version by Lewis Carol; and then there's American McGee's Alice .

  • Excerpt: And let me tell you, it comes as a bit of a shock to those of us who grew up with the (original cartoon) Disney version! See, I never played the original game but was intrigued by the sequel. I had no idea what I was getting into!

Alice: Madness Returns review

Gameplanet
26 October 2011
  • Excerpt: American McGee's vision for a disturbingly twisted take on Carroll's Wonderland may have been realised, but is it at the expense of detailed and considered gameplay?

  • Cons: Levels are too long, often wringing the visual concepts dry and stagnating the plot. Unreal Engine defects include texture pop-ins and freezing in-game loads.
