Summary: This one was average. Graphics were pretty good and visually it was quite quirky. Scenes were quite nice and satisfactory. Items were easy to find. Music choice was ok but was repetitious. Ambient sound, animation and effects were average too. As for the story, it didn't start off well and I was a little annoyed about the twisting and adaptation of the original classic. But I was drawn into it as I played along.
Summary: The negative reviews were such a surprise that I went back and replayed the game just to make sure I wasn't confusing it with another that I had really enjoyed. I experienced none of the problems others reported and I enjoyed it as much the second time through. This is one of those storylines that if you quit in the middle, you miss the whole point. Some have said Alice is a boring character.
Summary: There is nothing much to say about this game, except that it was a game that could have been much more appealing had the execution not been so dismal. The concept is fascinating - a dysfunctional wonderland with a plot that had some amount of depth. The graphics are also nothing short of well done and pretty, albeit the world is very finite. So far so good. The cut scenes, well, they were nice, but the resolution was just a little too low - the whole game is, in general.
Summary: I did not encounter any technical difficulties mentioned by other reviewers, but I am using a Mac and I believe Mac users are the minorities so I will not be able to vouch. Pros: Excellent graphics and good complementing audio and sound effects, no doubt. The twist in the storyline drew me in and kept me still on my chair till my completion.
Summary: I love hidden object games with a twist. I've always liked them. Since the third Mystery Case Files installment and Dream Chronicles saga I have been very eager to play hidden object games that required more than just looking for an item. I saw the previews to this game and was thinking 'what the heck, why not'. If I had known how this game was going to turn out I wouldn't have even attempted to play this. My 'what the heck, why not' turned into 'what the heck?'.
Summary: To be upfront I have only trialled Alice, but after getting well into Chapter 6 (out of 12) in one hour, it's not going to be worth buying. If it was twice as long I would have however, as the scenes are great, and it presents slightly differently to the usual HOGs. One problem I did have - objects to find may be pictured in boxes at the bottom of the screen, but these could be very dark and hard to distinguish.
Summary: beautiful game, but not very interesting. something was missing from the adventure aspect of it, and i'm not sure what it is. i usually enjoy the problem-solving of a good adventure (ravenhearst 2 being my standard for the genre.) this one seemed either too invested in holding my hand or leaving me out in the cold. there was no logical flow to it. also not much variation in the mini-games, and clusters of similarly typed games appeared too often.
Summary: I cannot a report a single problem that some reviewers have posted. I found the game easy enough and I am not a hot shot HOG player. The Graphics are stunning and the music adds to an all ready weird and twisted enviornment. I did not have any difficulty finding objects as reported by others. This game is may be short for some, but I spent a lot of time just looking at the pictures.
Summary: I could not pick up any items in the living room to make an oil lamp, and I couldn't pick up the crowbar. I would get to the basement, click all over the floor and the circle where the hint indicated, nothing. what a waste of time.
Summary: What a disappointment! I so looked forward to this game, since I had just seen the movie. I must say that the graphics are stunning and extraordinary. A great amount of work went into that part, but what happened to the rest? The game play is so clunky and the story is HORRID. It never sucked me in and I was so glad when it was over. What on earth were they thinking?
