Games on Demand version come with American McGee's Alice?

Hey, I didn't see any discussion for this so sorry if this was covered:

Does the Games on Demand version come with the first Alice already activated or do I need to buy that on top of Madness Returns?

It's not like the GoD version is pre-owned after all...

I am pretty sure (around 85%) that you will still have to buy AM:A. That is how Microsoft will milk you for some money. I think that you will have to pay for the expansion since they are listed as different things, and I have NEVER experienced a moment on XBL where you can download 2 things for the price of one.

Hmm, thanks. I was thinking that as well but I was hoping that it was the other way around. Oh well, I'll try finding a really cheap new copy instead...

I'm pretty sure it would not come with the original game. It would be nice if it did, but I highly doubt it. I've seen new copes for about $35-40 or so now so at least the price has gone down a bit.

I bought the game right from Xbox [not sure it that's what you mean by on Demand version] for $40 and it came with American McGee's Alice.

As in, downloading it from the server? If so, that answers the question, it seems GoD gives you American McGee's Alice. Good for Microsoft!

Yeah, I downloaded it right from the server. I didn't even realize that you could purchase the DLC separately, so I'm quite surprised that both were included within that $40.

But you don't have to buy the DLC either way. I purchased it for $40 right from the Xbox, and the DLC was included in that.

I hope it does I'm downloading it now. I'm not going to fork out another 10 to get the DLC. Dragon Age II came with The Black Emporium included so Alice should have the DLC included as well.

sells for $30 or 2400 MSP now. I think I'll wait till it drops to $20. Btw, does the Alice in wonderland game come with separate cheevos?

Yes and no. American McGee's Alice has 100 points worth of achievements but they're included in the overall 1000 GS for Alice: Madness Returns. Alice: Madness Returns only has 900 GS.

They got around it by including it with the original game if you purchased it. I believe you got a code or something. I never purchased a retail version so I'm not 100% sure about it but I remember my brother saying that he got American McGee's Alice with Alice: Madness Returns.

Yeah, but all other games that include "DLC" with a new copy have made that extend beyond the original 1000 like ME2, Batman AC, etc...

The game is $20(Walmart) here in the US now.Ea only structured the achievements like this to combat used game sales.Its a clever work-around of Microsofts rules.I was going to buy it new anyways, so no biggie.Cant wait to play it.

Thinking about downloading this now since it is down to $20 on GoD. Knowing that it does include the original for sure makes it a must buy now. I was worried it wouldn't be included.

So's it's clear:

American McGee's Alice is included with the Games on Demand version of Madness Returns. It does not require the additional download from the Marketplace - it's a part of the GoD download, and can be accessed from the main menu.

Also, this game is awesome sauce.

It certainly does NOT come with the dlc on GoD. It made me shell out the extra $10 to play the original game. :/

Well... that answers a question I had about the DLC! Be thankful you were able to GET the DLC... because it was FIRST announced it was FREE (May 30, 2013) - then it was pulled from the Xbox Marketplace - on the same day, apparently!

I hate it when DLC gets pulled (especially when there's no notice that it will be pulled). It's one thing, that EA announces it is shutting down online servers for a game... but it's a much bigger deal, when they pull DLC - and they don't even give a heads-up about it!!

I've already gotten the DLC (it came with my new copy of the game, as a download), but I feel for the people who get the game used, or as YOU stated... the GoD version no longer has the DLC with it, and is now no longer available for purchase.

I would assume a "new" copy of the game that has the DLC code, will still allow you to download the DLC, since that is considered "paid for" with the retail disc version of the game.
