Eleven years ago a horrific fire took Alice's family from her and left her mind horrifically scarred. Afterwards she was confined to Rutledge Asylum, where she struggled to confront her demons by slipping further into her fantasy world of Wonderland. Now, after ten years, she has finally secured her release-yet she still bears the heavy psychological burden of that tragic event.

With her mind in tatters, she is unable to resolve the fear prompted by her strange memories, dreams, and visions. Perhaps she'll do better in Wonderland. She always has. She travels there, seeking what the "real" world can't provide: security, knowledge, and the truth about the past. But in her absence, Wonderland too has suffered. Something has gone horribly wrong, and now a great evil is descending upon what once was her beautiful refuge. Can Alice save Wonderland-and herself-from the madness that consumes them both?

Visit Alice's dark and shattered wonderland

Alice: Madness Returns delves deep into the dark and violent side of the imagination, creating a nightmarish Wonderland where Alice must face the demons that haunt her visions. Visit the grim reality of Victorian London and then travel to the beautiful yet ghastly Wonderland to uncover the root of Alice's madness and discover the truth behind a deadly secret, kept hidden for years.

  • Intense 3rd Person Action: Use multiple upgradeable melee weapons, including the explosive Teapot Cannon, the punishing Hobby Horse, and the classic Vorpal Blade
  • Explore A Dark And Shattered Wonderland: Encounter familiar but now strange characters, including the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, the Caterpillar and the Red Queen
  • Magical Abilities: Obtain peculiar abilities in Wonderland such as floating with Alice's dress, shrinking, or growing to towering sizes in order to crush enemies
  • Interactive Puzzles: Intuitive and rewarding puzzles such as transforming obstacles, musical memories, chess, and picture blocks

 Wow!

This game is awesome. It's a platformer at heart, but does that job very well. The art direction is absolutley amazing, some of the ideas and locations are just superb. It controls very well and is smooth and moves along at a good pace. Some textures are not fantastic but the graphic design more than makes up for it in a similar way to how (in my opinion) Mario Galaxy looked brill without being in HD - the actual style makes it look superb. Buy this game, you won't regret it!!!

 Alice is back and she needs our help !

Graphics: 9/10
The graphics are not the best in the world but they still are very beautiful from the colours to shading effects it all adds to the dark yet colourful nature of Her wonderland. There are also many themed stages that alice travels through on her journey such as an underwater stage , japanese themed stage, the mad hatters domain filled with machinery, There is so much variety to each stage you will never get board on whats going on around you.

Gameplay: 9/10
The controls for the game pretty basic, And that's not a bad thing at all. Each weapon is assigned to a different button and switching between them is simple and fun. Combos are funa nd easy to pull off and once you get the hang of using them all you can do some real damage.
There are also loads of collectables in this game but I wont spoil it all for you.
this game also supports dlc outfits for alice to wear which effects how you play the game aswell.

Music: 10/10
Music is disturbing and atmospheric but can also be tranquil in certain parts of the game, every track is a masterpiece.

Story 9/10
even without knowing all the details of the first game, you don't ever really feel lost. It is a very unique twist on the story of Alice and her Wonderland. As you explore Her Wonderland.
The main story of alice madness returns is focused on Alice trying to figure out the tragic events from the first game surrounding the mysterious circumstances that lead to her families death as she tries to piece together her fragmented mind and destroyed wonderland.
as the games story unfolds its gets very dark and even quite disturbing in A good way.

Overall:
This game is amazing simple fun from story to gameplay im on my 2nd playthrough and its just getting better there are 4 difficulties to try out so dive into Wonderland If you Dare !

Alice is a good game for the first few hours but soon drags on and on with no change in the game play and boring levels. The good thing about Alice is the longevity is very good so you get a good 10 hours from it but a bit of variety would have made this so much better! There are mini games to play but the controls are poor on them.
The weapons are different and you have to use a variety of them to overcome the bigger baddies. There are cut scenes and mini walkabouts in victorian London but all you do is walk around, whats the point of that? You collect bottles but with no aim. i got to the point of getting to the end of the level just to finish it quicker. Its a shame because its a throwback to games of the past but it needed just a tweak to become great.

 welcome to the dark side of the looking glass

I wont lie, I've been waiting for this game for eleven year!

When I started to play it I was a bit worried as it's quit dark, now I'm not one to shy away from the dark but it seemed like the game designers where trying a bit to hard to make it darker then the first one and then I started to worry that perhaps the first one was all so dark and I was looking back at it with teenage eyes but then I kept playing and fell in love with it all over again.

If you've played the first one you won't be disappointed and if you haven't.. Well welcome to the dark side of the looking glass, not for kids

 The Madness has landed.

Hey guys:) Alice in Wonderland has entertained us for many years thanks to Disney's masterfully classic animated adaptaion of Lewis Carroll's acclaimed story of a young girl and her adventures in Wonderland. Now thanks to EA we can continue her adventures as she returns to Wonderland for more frollicks and fun. The original game, 'American McGee's Alice' gained cult status amongst gamers worldwide and this follow on set years later looks like it might do the same. Purchasing the game 'new' is highly recommended as you recieve a code to download the original game for free, well worth anyones time. The new game 'Alice: Madness Returns' blends elements of action, platform and puzzle style gaming without effort and includes some of the most vividly realised characters and locations seen in a game of this type, whether you are floating on the air or piloting a sunken ship in a 2D hommage to classic shooters this game never fails to deliver. Simply put, a must have for fans of the title and a worthy addition to anyones game collection.
