American McGee's Alice walkthrough????

Does anyone know if there is a walkthrough for this game anywhere on the web? I am just ready to finish this game and do not feel like trying to figure some parts of it out.. I know it's lazy but I have a ton of other stuff I could be working on. Thx in advance...

It's really not that hard to figure out for the most part. I used a speed run on Youtube on a couple parts though. Good luck...

I used one of the ones on gamefaqs for the PC version . . . it was very helpful.

How long did it take you to get through it? I am not sure I could suffer through too much of this so was wondering how long it takes.

Sorry, have to vent here. This game is SO bad. In chapter 2 you jump across rearranging blocks of walkway and if you miss JUST ONCE, you have to wait like 5 minutes before the walkway blocks animate back to you? Geez!

And to mention the crappy controls and lack of any combat tutorial is just awful. This feels like an early 80's game. Only worse. I'd rather be playing Commander Keen! God, please give me strength to finish this game!

lmao, I know right?! It is terrible. F'ed up controls, lack of any direction, so far I am about 6 hours in and I just want to die. Worst part is if you forget to save and die some stupid death due to "floating" off the edge of a platform or something when you jump.... 2 more chapters to go tho.. and thx for that gamefaqs thing, I never remember to look there

You certainly hit the nail on the head about the saves. I can't even remember which slot was my last save so I end up reloading several times before I find the right one.

I did read through that guide and now I know I can "shoot" the knife. Maybe I'll die less often and can concentrate on dying from missing platforms instead...

I definately would not say this game is awful. This has been one of the best games I have played in a long time. The only reason why I want a guide is to help me find the memories and the pig snouts. Apart from that... I LOVE THIS GAME!!!

Pretty sure they are talking about American McGee's Alice...Not Alice Madness Returns.

OT: I don't understand all the hate AM's Alice is getting. I thought it was fantastic. Sure the game is slightly dated, but I still found it a really fun and enjoyable game. Personally, I ran into more glitches and annoying parts in Madness Returns than I did in AM's Alice. Controls and gameplay did not bother me the slightest bit. Maybe some people just can't get used to the way the game plays or something.

No, I really loved Madness Returns. Its the original that is a problem. There are no real checkpoints and if you forget to save, and save OFTEN, like after every jump you make, you get to do it all over again! Yay! NOT....

Seriously agreed. What's most infuriating, other than how terrible this original game is, is the fact that I almost don't want to suffer through it for the 1000GS. Madness Returns on nightmare was a piece of cake in comparison and it's all down to this one being poorly designed and, let's face it, just plain difficult even on easy.

I'm about ready to call it quits.

Another thing to mention here, so that nobody else falls into the same trap, the last two save slots are only temporary saves. If you are quitting the game for the current session, make SURE you are not saving to these slots. It appears that the auto save is slot 1 so I recommend saving to either slots 2, 3, or 4 only. Unless its just my system that is wonky...

American McGee's Alice isn't a bad game, it's just old. When it first came out, it was an amazing game. I still enjoyed it 10 years later.

You guys seriously don't recognize why this game isn't as fun as newer games? This game came out before the original XBox was even released. It's not a bad game. If you look at many of the other games that came out in 2000, Alice was a great game for its time.

I don't know. I'm a fanatic for other older games, from the 80s and 90s and this feels much older than it actually is. Hell, my favourite series of all time are old and have aged perfectly. Monkey Island, King's Quest, Castlevania. All, in my opinion, have aged really well. Alice hasn't.

I mean, the story is flawless. I love it. I love the music, the plot, the characters and I can even sing the praises of the graphics at certain parts, but the game itself, the combat, the platforming... to be frank it's just awful.

Which is a shame because I wanted to love it, but I basically have to force myself through it and it's such a chore.

I had this game back in 2000 and I could not get passed the 2nd stage lol. Eleven years later and with a controller I finally beat this game. It's a fun game but I agree with a lot of posters in here about why it's difficult. You need a diff mindset when you play it. Too many times have I been knocked off the platforms into an early death.. But if you stick with it and get the Jacks then the game isnt too bad. Just uh.. be careful with the platforming on the end boss lol.

Wow, I was wondering why my saves in slots 5 and 6 deleted themselves, I thought it was a glitch. Luckily the last autosave was very recent so I didn't lose much progress.

Boy, am I glad THAT'S done! Once you get the jacks, it isn't as bad as the beginning chapters. But I never want to play this game again. NEVER!

I followed the video walkthrough found at

http://www.archive.org/details/Ameri...eo_Walkthrough

It's a great walkthrough for those who didn't really want to spend time figuring out the game, but rather just rip through the chapters as quickly as possible... the player in the video doesn't even stop to fight many of the enemies, and skips by plenty of juicy little powerups and weapons...

But they get it all done in just over 2 hours (including cutscenes, and long black screens during load times). Definitely a great resource for those who just want to be done with those last 6 achievements.

As for me, I'm at 1000G for this game so that's all folks!

Thanks for linking this, it's really helpful and (hopefully) will dramatically reduce the time needed to finish AMA so I can finally get started on Madness returns.

If you just play the game without a walktrough how long will ik take?
loved madness returns but I played the first for a short while now and the only reason I keep playing is for the achievements,I hate the way Alice moves in this one and the stupid autosaves at the begin of a level only

I seem to be the only one who enjoyed the original. I remember playing it on my dad's pc when I was younger, and beating it. It was the only reason I had any desire to check out Madness returns!

That's why I bought Madness Returns as well...but I am having a hard time getting into American McGee's Alice again. It's normal for me though, it seems like the games I used to love and spend hours upon hours playing (most recently: Alice, Duke Nukem 3d, Wolfenstein) now just don't do it for me. I have a brief feeling of nostalgia and once that fades we don't get along too well. I think I'll eventually get through it.
