Summary: I never got to play it and had to take it off my computer. It cause some havok. You have to play it online like steam. That did not work out. Then it mae my computer nuts. I just wrote off the cost an deleted it from my computer.
Summary: Black screen and key binding issues with this game ended up ruining it for me. After extensive Google searching I fixed the black screen by manually editing a config file. It could only play in windowed mode, but at least it was working. Then I found that my key bindings did not completely take effect. Google search indicates I can maybe manually edit those too (after a few hours of research and effort). At this point it's not worth it to me.
Summary: I played this game for maybe 20 minutes until I got to wonderland. Then gameplay was really jerky. I figured it had something to do with the download so I uninstalled and reinstalled. It didn't work still does it. Very disappointed cause now its too late to get my money back on this!!!
Summary: Ok so this game can be some times cool to play, but you have SO MANY frustrating moments where you need to execute 10 jumps in a row with a certain time limit: it's ok from time to time, but there are a lot of it. I always finish my video games, unless I get stuck with a big boss. I gave up that game, because I was so tired of spending hours jumping and timing my jumps.
Disappointing; nice environment but frustrating game play.

Summary: I was disappointed by Alice: Madness Returns. I bought it based on the original American McGee's Alice, which is one of my all-time favorite games. My one favorable comment is that the environment and enemies are novel, interesting and great to look at (perhaps this is what McGee is really good at).
Game would be great, if EA had bothered to test it

Summary: The storyline was engaging, the graphic style nice, and I found myself generally interested in wanting to continue play. However, do not buy this game if you have any plans to modify your key bindings (and keep in mind the defaults are neither intuitive or logical). There is nothing more irritating than having to redo the same section 3 or 4 times because a key bound to a critical weapon or defense movement simply stops working (i.e., umbrella block).
Summary: I rated it this way because I could not even download it completely after 12+ hours of downloading from "Origen" the third party(EA Games) you need to have before downloading.I have uninstalled it and will try again sometime. Thank goodness I got it on sale! Forget getting real help from EA customer service-youre on your own. PS-I loved the original Alice and was hoping to play it again.
