Summary: I played American McGee's Alice for the first time about eight or so years ago. It stood out of the crowd, dark, foreboding and eerie. I'd heard nothing about it, no praise, no condemnations, nothing, and perhaps that, coupled with just how different it was from everything on the shelf, I simply had to take a look. Now, it's almost a decade since then, and with Alice: Madness Returns waiting for me at home, I felt that it was time to take a look back at Alice.
Summary: Played this game when it came out years ago. Now that the new one comes out in June I had to get my hands dirty playing again. Still a great game for the time. Can't wait to see how it looks this time around 11 years later with everything so high tech as it is. Anyone who plays this game will not be dissappointed.
Summary: American McGee's Alice is a classic that should never be forgotten, if you're a fan of Alice in Wonderland but have not played this...then shame on you. If one can ignore those Disney movies and take a gander at Lewis Carrol's books, they will see how American McGee's Alice fits like a puzzle piece into the story.
Summary: American Mcgee's Alice is and always will be a legend. i was 10 when my brother got this game and even 6 years later it's the one game i own that gets the most play time on my computer which is a severly out dated dell running windows 98. it had the best graphics and music for it's time i'd say. i've never really been one for the third person adventure genre seeing as i'm a die-hard RPG guy. and coming from me that means it's an amazing game.
Summary: When I first tried playing American Mcgee's Alice, I began to worry I was tumbling down the wrong rabbit hole. It turns out that I was wrong. American Mcgee's Alice, known to some as the third chapter in Alice's life, revolves around a nightmarish Wonderland taken over by the monstrous Red Queen.
What every game should aspire to be like in some way!

Summary: Aside from the sublime Half-Life 2, this game is my all-time favourite. I play it over and over again, just to savour the wonderfully bizarre atmosphere. This is the sort of game that just screams quality and depth. I didn't mind that the game basically consisted of run, jump, disembowel with knife. Overly complicated and/or convoluted gameplay always gets on my nerves, and I prefer something straightforward.
Summary: Definitely, aside from Mcgee being extraordinarily prodigious in creating games tailor made for bloodthirsty people like moi, this game gets better as it progresses. Everything about this game enthralls me, the sound, the illustrations, the storyline and even the dialogue. It never fails to horrify me, yes I admit I played this game for almost a year, over and over, but I finished it only once. Why spoil the fun, right!? This one for you tokey!
Summary: More 2 and a half stars for everything; a grudging recommendation. Usually I write pretty long reviews, but i suppose this game is getting a bit long in the tooth so I thought I'd try and dash a brief one out for the small group of people who might be interested. I mean, its not that outdated.
Summary: Sometimes, humans experience something that occupies their whole soul and heart. Something deep and emotionfilled, something so wonderful that time and place has no meaning. Alice does that. The moment you start Alice, you know this is different. Alice is nothing like other games. Yes, its a 3rd person view, you control Alice, and you are saving Wonderland from the Evil Queen of Hearts, BUT. The way this is done is so overly beautiful it is hard to describe.
Summary: "Alice" is a very intriguing game, with an equally interesting story-line spun-off from Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass". Basically, Alice's parents are killed one night in a house fire, several years after the events recorded in the Lewis Carroll novels have transpired. Alice is the only survivor from this house fire.
