Summary: This is one bizarre action-platformer. "Madness Returns" takes the "Alice in Wonderland" setting we all grew up with and stabs it in the heart with a big, bloody knife. You play as Alice, a young girl with some truly nightmarish dreams, who enters Wonderland every time she dozes off (which is often), but the Wonderland she returns to is not quite how she remembers it. The world she knew has grown twisted, and its inhabitants deformed.
I loved it but but it can be glitchy and frustrating

Summary: I always had wanted to play this game because of the beautiful visuals but had hesitated to buy it when it first was released because of the price. A friend of mine reminded me of it recently and recommended it and so I finally gave in. And I am very happy I did. ART DIRECTION:I absolutely loved the game's visuals and art direction. The worlds were dark and very entertaining. I also found it fun that Alice's dress changed with each different world.
Summary: Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Finally, a sequel to American Mcgee's Alice; Alice Madness Returns has arrived. I never played American McGee's Alice, but I did watch a playthrough on youtube. Alice Madness Returns follows the protagonist Alice Liddell, now an older woman; she is still haunted by her past, aren't they all? With the help of Doctor Agnus Bumby, she tries to forget and move on not realizing the danger she is putting Wonderland in.
Summary: This game is very surprisingly addictive and fun. Pros- -Great feel and nice creepy adult vibe -Decent controls for movement and camera angles -Surprisingly in depth storyline -Creative weaponry and usage Cons- -Unfortunately low replay value -Very linear

Summary: **Warning** do not buy this game if you have an aversion to the following: jumping, puzzle-solving, creepy dolls. Okay, so the main character bears a striking resemblance to Winona Rider in Beetlejuice and the overall style looks like it came from the mind of Tim Burton. Game-play made me immediately think of my beloved Kingdom Hearts except...in a nightmarish sort of way.
Summary: The original Alice was a surprise PC hit that mixed the crazy world of Lewis Carroll's Wonderland with a steam punk vibe, an experience which felt so natural it's a surprise it wasn't done before. Madness Returns continues this blending of two worlds, but to a less successful degree, and incidentally loses appeal. Alice has once again fallen into a state of insanity due to her guilt after the death of her family.
Summary: I missed the chance to play American McGee's Alice, but I am familiar of the game and what happened at the end. The story continues with Alice Liddell trying to find some resolution with the death of her family and eventually finds out her Wonderland is in trouble. All the characters from the first game (Yes, all of them!) make their appearance in Madness Returns. Madness Returns consisted 6 chapters with multiple sub-chapters (5 to 12).
Summary: Let me start out by saying I really do love this game the graphics are amazing and the gameplay if entertaining. The reason I dropped a star on the overall rating is because of the camera, the player has to continually move the camera while Alice moves; I don't play a lot of these type of games but it intrigued me, the camera not locking on Alice's back makes gameplay difficult because if you turn her around you have to turn the camera in order to see in front of her.
Summary: This game is actually really good, and very entertaining. When I first heard the reviews I thought I'd skip on it. But than I got a 50 dollar gc for Target and I decided to buy it, Havent been diappointed since I started playing.
