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
Pros: Great, twisted story in a beautifully creepy environment.
Cons: You can't start a new game I almost took two stars away for that one. I was away from home for 2 months, came back home and wanted to play a new game & can't even get past the point it started me on. Ridiculous. I'm very angry about that.
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: 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.
Summary: I think that this game is better than most reviews say it is. The world is dark, and gloomy which fits the mood of the game, but takes away some of the visual stimulation that some people enjoy. Alice looks great and the costume changes made me want to get to the next stage to see what she would change into next. Enemies are tough, but not too tough and fit in nicely within the world. I liked the hack and slash fighting the game has.
Summary: I have to say that I bought this game on the basis that the trailer looked so interesting (and I've never played the first one). Overall, Alice: MR is a great title, albeit with problems that made me go WTF several times. Story: Dark, Tim Burton-esque. So not like the Disney movie and I mean that in the best possible way. It is twisted and very deserving of its M rating. Graphics: This is a problem area and the most significant reason for the 1-star removal.
