Manufacturer's Description

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.

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?

Alice: Madness Returns stays true to the original whilst streamlining combat and exploration (of what little there is). Watch my video review to get the full lowdown :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game 17 Jun 2011
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Alice - Madness returns is a very beautiful and great looking game. you will need a good PC to run it in the very high settings. Ive been playing for 5 hours and only 25% of the game is completed. It must be a very long game.Its a bit like Medieval on the psone / and Evil twin on dreamcast and pc.if you like these games than its a must buy for you. The game has Drm. after installing you have to Activate the serial code online. You DO NOT need to make a EA account to play.After you done this you can play the game from the Icon and with no CD-game in the cd-player.YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE ONLINE TO START THE GAME

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh God the Glitches... 26 Aug 2012
By Sarah
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game for PC, played it, graphics are awesome and artwork is amazing but...
Oh God.
The Glitches.
The first one came in The Mad Hatter's Domain, where I couldn't actually use the umbrella, then my ranged weapon wouldn't switch out to my sword.
And this was after checking the internet several times for fixing, altering the game's readme, uninstalling and reinstalling the game and restarting my profile. The game itself is amazing, brilliant storyline, but they seriously need to fix those flipping glitches, because they're actually preventing me from playing the game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Got potential but where's the PC patch? 12 July 2011
By BeX

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The Good:
I like the environments and the story, I want to play this game!
The not so good:
I was all excited at the beginning when it offered to play in 1st person as I've been playing L4D2 a lot. Unfortunately that is not the case for the whole game. I personally find 3rd person very, very annoying so have had real problems making the jumps even in easy mode, in fact, to the point I may not play it anymore out of sheer annoyance, yes, rage in wonderland.
The jumps would be so easy in 1st it really bugs me.
The mouse is way to sensitive and even on low can spin you on the spot, the auto aim is abysmal to the point you cant really use it so end up using the knife instead or trying to point and shoot but that is not good either.
No manual save is a real annoyance also, esp as the jumps take you back to the start of the run each time you fall. After being used to the fast moving L4D2 this is just painfully slow and not really exceptable in a modern game, it was annoying in 1990 when it was the norm but now just unacceptably tedious.
You will need to create an online EA account if you don't already have one to register the game, then the server sends a key which decrypts the game files. On the plus the game will then play without the disk in the drive but you need to be online. You don't need to log in each time and there is no chat/community etc as it is Sony DRM based, so be sure to let Sony through your firewall at all times. I'm sure you can trust them to keep there tech and your PC secure, oh hang on a minute : /
The monsters keep repeating also, so get a bit boring.

Overall:
I really want to play this game and am quite disappointed by the bugs, repetitiveness and DRM, I may use some cheats and just go on a god like tour of Wonderland.
I'm hoping they patch it very soon. Gave 3 stars as I want to like it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good 28 Jan 2012
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Pros firstly
The game is styled within an inch of its life and as a result it looks beautiful
Interesting story line
The character of Alice is very likable
The game does support the xbox gaming controller which is a plus
Erm that's about it.

Cons
The graphics fall down on some of the most basic points. While the huge landscapes and characters are brilliantly done the smaller details have fallen by the wayside eg. A spiked floor with the spikes moving up and down through the floor and the spikes and the holes don't even match up.

The combat is very repetitive. Dodge, hit, dodge, hit. Repeat until done
The 'puzzles' or more correctly, the obstacle courses which comprise most of the game get very dull and frustrating very quickly. The main problem is no variation in the obstacles.

The aiming system which you are encouraged to use is terrible. Luckily its not necessary but if you want to use ranged weapons quickly then its pretty essential. The targeter keeps moving from one enemy to the next and if you try and focus on just one enemy then it flicks backwards and forwards between the two. This was very annoying.

The interesting levels were cut very short. The Card Bridge for example was very fun but took only about 20mins to complete
The game is also only 12hours long

When you install the game you are forced to install EA Download Manager as well. This then needs to update but once you agree to the update it tries to install Origin as well. Erm hello EA. No one wants spyware on their computer! If you cancel the installation then the manager keeps complaining about not being up to date.

In all its a very average game weighed down by bad gameplay mechanics and the standard DRM that EA feels compelled to smother all their products with now days. Don't bother unless its less than 5 and you are very bored

4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this, but ...... 1 July 2011
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
OK, I'll start with the positives. Graphically stunning. The levels are truly nightmarish in their depiction. A level where Alice jumps around on playing cards way up in the clouds is not for anyone nervous about heights. The storyline is engrossing, and the London sequences show us some truly grotesque characters. The foes you face are varied, and you have some pretty impressive weapons, especially when upgraded. Replayability factor is high. There is a lot to do and find, and you're unlikely to achieve it all in one playthrough. For example, you may find yourself with more than one path ahead. One of those may lead you to a collectible object or a side-game, while the other advances you through the level. Take the second option and a door closes behind you. With no way back, you'd have to play again to find out where the other path would have taken you and to do/collect what you missed the first time round. As a general warning, this game is NOT for children. Paedophilia and prostitution are recurrent themes, and the f-word is used on a number of occasions although none of this is unrealistic for 19th century London. There are a few niggles. There is no manual save function. The game autosaves at checkpoints, and as far as I can see you can only ever go back to your last save. If you die by falling off a ledge or by contacting some hazardous object, you are returned to the game somewhere nearby. If you die in combat however, you go back to the last checkpoint with everything to do again and there is an annoying 'do you want to continue?' screen (all that is missing is 'please insert another coin'). Some of the platform-jumping sequences are very difficult and frustrating, and seem to go on forever. The auto-targeting feature is problematic; using the Tab key to switch targets rarely seems to work. Read more ›
