This review is from: Alice: Madness Returns (PS3) (Video Game)
Got this on release date, and it comes with the first Alice game that was made for the PC 11 years ago. I thought I would download it and start that first before playing Madness Returns.
The first Alice plays like a PSone game. It's been remastered in HD and has trophies, and looks ok. I'm probably a quarter way through it but it is showing it's age, so instead as it was free content, I thought I'd put it on hold until I have nothing else to play.....so I started playing Madness Returns....
Loving it so far. Graphics are brilliant, stunning visuals. It has an upgrade system for weapons (you collect teeth you get from killing enemies). I kind of don't want to proceed to quickly so I can take in the visuals.
For the price of a new release game, you get a brilliant game, and a retro classic.
If you are planning to play Madness before the free download Alice, then I'd have a read on wikipedia so you can learn a little bit of the story from the first one. I did that and it's fine.
Overall, one of the best games released this year.

It's nice they included the original game. I never played it but the trailer for this made me interested in playing it. The fact that you get the original too is a nice bonus and something i think other developers should take note of. I may have just rented this but now i reckon i'll buy it.
I love playing the older games in HD even if they have aged. I enjoyed God of War 1 & 2, Tomb Raider Trilogy and most of all Beyond Good and Evil, all of which I missed when they were originally released.
To top it off, they are even donig ICO and Shadow of the Colossus which i never played either. nice!

You have to download the original game and are given a key so that you can access their network. It's not on the disc.

Yeah that's what i expected. Which is why i'll buy it instead of rent it to get the extra content. Of course, this is exactly why they do it! But it works...
