Summary: You can tell they spent more money and effort into the advertising campaing and the animations but the game is still in a good shape, the only thing so far i seem to be not getting along with is that most part of the game you feel you are traveling and jumping through dungeons and fabrics. Some enemies also seem to be a little to ackward or maybe the 3D artist were to lazy to come up with something cool, other from that the game is awsome.
A crazy juxtaposition - Alice: Madness returns (PS3)
28 July 2013
Excerpt: "Any game trying to enter the crowded first or third person shooter market needs to innovate to stand out from the crowd. Doing what the others do in a decent way is rarely good enough to bring in the reviews that drive sales. Just to clarify, first person shooters give you the perspective of looking at the game through the eyes of the protagonist. (Call of duty is perhaps the best known example of this genre.) Third person shooters give you the perspective ...
Pros: Interesting world to explore, great graphics on the whole
Cons: Third person action meets platformer just doesn't work
Summary: Story line in this game is brilliant, you don't really need to have played the first game. If you want to however you do get q free Download code when you buy the game new. The game play is fun and the scenery is great, it does get a little repetitive with you facing similar challenges on each level, however the platforming is brilliant and the jumping system very good. One of the few games where I enjoyed replaying to get all the collectables.
Summary: Alice in Wonderland was always a trippy book to begin with, but when it is strained through the brain of American McGee it becomes scary as well as trippy. In `Alice: Madness Returns' you play as Alice in the real world (a cross between Fable, Oliver and hell) and in Wonderland (Hell, hell and hell). Within Wonderland the game becomes a 3rd person platformer with fighting elements and a few puzzles to solve.

Summary: Sequels are tricky. Please old fans, attract new ones; create something that's new but also the same - it's a tough balancing act. One that Madness Returns dodges by not even trying, and basically making the same game all over again. The mix of platforming and mindless combat is so PS2-esque that I actually had to double-check that this wasn't an HD remake of the 2000 original, American McGee's Alice. It isn't. Ah...
Don't believe the title, Suggs is nowhere to be found in this game!

Summary: Is 'American McGee' having his name attached to the titles of these games supposed to be a selling point or something? I know I've never heard of the guy outside of this game and the earlier PC game, but I think I'd be less likely to buy a game with his name all over it to be honest. You haven't earned that hubris "American".
