Finally, someone dared to say that Alice in Wonderland is the story of a psychopath. In this game, her whole world is just a hallucination in her brain. Play it and find out for yourself if this is true or not. You can download Alice: Madness Returns™ for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
The graphics look amazing and nothing like original books and movies. It’ s a whole new massive world with new, unusual, colorful places, objects, and characters. Alice here isn’t blond as we’re used to, and all other characters are somewhat familiar but far from originals. The cat still has his smile, but he’s very week and anorexic. Also, there are new characters never seen or mentioned in other stories about Alice.
In this Alice: Madness Returns™ review I must say that it’s an action-adventure and platform genres with single player mode only. You have to follow Alice into her world and fight against the evil that settled in once perfect place. You can say that it’s a little horror game as well - you’ll see here crazy-looking characters (one-eyed kettles, saber teeth fish, black globs with faces, bolts with wings, etc.), a lot of violence, blood, and Alice herself changes to the ghost-looking girl. You have to save the Wonderland from evil and yourself from madness. Alice will fight with different enemies through the game with different kitchen utensils such as pepper dispenser, kettle weapon, knives, and others. She’ll become big and small, jump on cards and will be able to cross big distances in the air. Besides the main mission, there will be small additional tasks available through the game.
So Alice’s world is your platform where Alice runs, jumps, flies and fight enemies. Nothing fresh and new. You follow and discover the map, complete tasks, and missions. You can fight using different weapons and Alice’s abilities which you get for exchanging enemies’ teeth on special cards. You can see Alice from the typical third-person view and from the side which changes how you move her. The fights are usually with your interact button with some additional effects if you purchased them for teeth, but you’ll always win.
Replay Value: 5
This is definitely a one-time game only. Because it has the beginning and the end of a storyline. Once you’ve finished all the tasks and quests, you’ll know how to do that, and it won’t be interesting to play them again. This game is good to see legendary Alice in different style and story, and that’s it.
This your typical action game with not too much drama. If you’re looking for something light and not too much involving or time-consuming you’ll like Alice: Madness Returns™. It’s simple to play it and simple enough to finish it. You’ll forget it once you’ve finished it. Explore this fantastic world with her and save everybody.
When you’ll download Alice: Madness Returns™ you get stuck on the other side of Alice’s world. Be sure not to go crazy yourself.
Pros : Beautiful graphics;
Variety of characters and Alice’s looks.
Cons : Not so exciting missions and additional tasks;
Too simple game in general.
