3.0 out of 5 stars Close but not close enough, 21 Jun. 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Alice: Madness Returns (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Length:: 4:20 Mins

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 :)
Warning: Video contains few uses strong language!

An honest and actually rather funny review sir!

I felt from your comments a three star rating was on the horizon. I have not bought the game yet, though from what I understand of reviews they mostly praise the art, music and story but highlight flaws in the gameplay, that you also mentioned. Still, four stars? Or three and a half? :D

I actually completed it last night. I was quite happy up until the last level and finale where the story, to me, crashes and burns the terrific buildup it worked on throughout.
On the contrary with the level design, they start using more original ideas in the last level. Just makes me wonder why they weren't as creative earlier on.

But yeah. I'll drop this down to a 3.

Your review was very useful - I believe the best course of action for me is to wait until Alice comes down in price, as I still wish to play it eventually. Though I am quite disappointed to hear that my fears about this games imperfections are quite possibly true.

I marked your review as helpful - because it was! :D

Waiting is a good idea. It's a nice game but definitely not worth the full RRP.
I'm glad you enjoyed my review and found it helpful :)

good review and i think you focused very well on the important aspects of the game. on the targeting i suspect maybe they expected switching targeting on and off frequently to be an approach. i would typically use targeting off to get some space to fight and then targeting on for long shots at weak spots. after i had both ranged weapons the combat became extremely trivial with this technique.

You've gave away far too much spoilers for the game because I now know that she gets locked up 'in the real world', that she squashes that huge card guard when you can't physically can't, that you do meet the red queen when one of the objectives are to find her, and that you become humungous...

Persepolis says:
I apologise, but a lot of the content I showed (her squashing the guard, for example) was used as promotional material during the games initial marketing. Besides, these are not plot spoilers.

You watched a video review of a game, of course there are going to be content spoilers. Otherwise I couldn't show any footage.
