  • Excerpt: Despite some problematic platforming and a tendency towards tedium, Alice: Madness Returns is a worthy follow-up to the original. It also stands on its own as an enjoyable action-platformer with a twisted story and gorgeous visual design, so even if you have no experience with the original game, it is still worth checking out.

  • Excerpt: The original American McGee’s Alice was a twisted turn on Alice in Wonderland, where institutionalised young Alice Liddell descends into a mental world of her favourite book after witnessing her parents die in a housefire. For a game that didn’t exactly register on a global scale, there are definite ripples caused by the aesthetic that have permeated popular culture.

Alice: Madness Returns Review – Xbox 360

  • Conclusion: Alice: Madness Returns is a delightful diversion from the norm. The platforming is entertaining and the combat is great. While it outstays its welcome in the game mechanic department, the visuals never let up. It proves that art outshines the greatest graphical technique. And when you buy the game new, you get the complete American McGee’s Alice as a bonus. Two games for the price of one. They aren’t the most stellar titles but the value proposition is a strong one.

  • Conclusion: — The levels are creative and artistic direction is solid, but the actual gameplay suffers from a lack of diversity and being clumped into big chunks.

  • Summary: " Alice: Madness Returns " is an interesting proposition. It’s got a beautiful art style, some sick and twisted creations and vistas, and a decent mix of combat, platforming, and exploration. Whilst some of the gameplay doesn’t stack up, for those people for which creativity and originality are key things when thinking about a new games purchase, Alice more than makes up for any gameplay deficiencies.

Alice: Madness Returns Xbox 360 Review

  • Excerpt: Weird worlds full of twisted characters and lots of imagination often make for some very special gaming experiences. We’ve had the likes of BioShock, Silent Hill, Epic Mickey and Deadly Premonition, to name but a few. Back in 2000, American McGee’s Alice (which is included as a free download with new copies of this sequel) also presented a weird and wonderful universe, which took inspiration from the famous Alice in Wonderland fairytale.

  • Conclusion: A wonderfully realised fantasy world that is equal parts entrancing and disturbing. The story is well realised and will keep you enamoured until the credits roll. There are a few niggles here but nothing to stop Alice: Madness Returns from being a wonderfully different slice of entertainment. Now who's for tea?

  • Excerpt: The twisted version of Wonderland presented in Alice: Madness Returns is easily the game's greatest asset. Environments are simultaneously whimsical and grotesque, and American McGee's Spicy Horse studio is to be commended for achieving such a feat. Also worthy of note is Alice herself, who is one of the most stunning character models I've seen in a long time. Her outfit changes to fit whatever Wonderland domain she is currently occupying, and each looks great.

  • Excerpt: Way back in 2000 there was a game called American McGee's Alice released for PC. It was one of those titles that flew under the radar of most people, but at the same time managed to garner quite a cult following over the years. American McGee's warped and wicked view of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland now makes a comeback over ten years later with the sequel: Alice: The Madness Returns .
