This game was near perfect in my opinion. The doll house level was my least favorite level but the rest of it I loved!!!

While I disagree with you about the game sucking, it's nice to see someone that hated the Johnny Depp version of the movie lol. Serious fail. I so wanted that movie to be American McGee meets Tim Burton, but no. Alice has so much potential, really Disney, another "but I don't want to get married wah" plot? I know it may be hard to swallow, brace yourselves Disney, but it turns out chicks can have other problems *gasp*

The OP is an idiot. Its a great 3D platfomer, something awesome in a gen where the only platformers are 2D and usually only XBLA games or mario. I also have to disagree with the score this site gave it. At the very least it deserves a 95, or dare I say it- a 100 for visuals!

Seriouisly, the artwork in this game is easily better than most games this gen! sure the story wasn't that great, but neither is any alice thing for that matter. Alice in wonderland, in any form, is primarily about creating a wonderful, unique world. This game simply took that and gave it an epic, dark twist!

I was pretty impressed with the game considering it was free with the preorder of crysis 3.

The game is good, not the best, but it is definitely repetitive and I did get bored sometimes, the things I do for cheevos, now I'm doing the original game, which is boring.

Yeah... I just can't stress enough, that the original "Alice" game (the DLC) should be played first (and I mean ALL of it - no matter how difficult or irritating some parts might be)... before starting Madness Returns.

I don't hate the original (shoot... I got it first on PC a LONG TIME AGO), but it just doesn't play as well as the sequel. Most people I know, that started the sequel, then went and played the original... were less tolerant of it, because they got spoiled by the newer game!

On a side note... if you aren't playing this game with Dolby Digital Surround Sound (with an LFE subwoofer)... you are missing out on one of THE BEST sounding games on the Xbox 360! I have a LOT of Xbox 360 games that you would think would have really awesome sound, but this one is still the leader.

You can see the thread here that I started about the sound for this game!

Surprisingly... a LOT of people STILL aren't playing the Xbox 360 on an HDTV, let alone have a decent sound system. That (to me) is just nuts! Everything looks SOOOOOOO much better in HD. I'm really glad the Xbox One is ONLY going to work on an HDTV. It'll force the gamers to upgrade and see what they are missing!!

I absolutely loved the game.

I really enjoyed the collectable memories - putting together Alice's story - and exploring the different chapters. The characters were fantastic. Yes, - lots and lots of platforming ... but, I think this game had it's fair share of reprieve from that bit as well, though.

I actually find it hard to explain why I loved the game as much as I did - the mechanics weren't anything novel or groundbreaking - but I enjoyed the story and thought the design was beautiful.

All my rambling aside - I think it's worth it to check it out - most definitely.

Absolutely agree.

I made the mistake of NOT doing this - learn from my mistake, kids.

First thing, if you honestly think this was based off of any movie then I am going to back slap you so hard your teeth will bleed. It is based off of BOOKS sorry that none of you read or decide that you are going to post biased comments without knowing your facts first.

Second thing, I absolutely love this game, and I suck balls at platforming games. I love the darkness, the minigames that break up the action, the creepy music, the fighting, and the duel-layer psychosis storyline.

Third thing, I honestly feel like they didn't have anyone playtest this because HOLY DUCKING GLITCHES! Now that still doesn't ruin games for me because being a game tester is one of my dream jobs, and I am aware that nothing is perfect. The more content you pack in with less processing power; there will always be glitches.

Then at the end..the glass traps...WHAT THE FUCK?

Went from my top 10 games to FUCK THIS SHIT I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND ANYONE PLAY IT EVER.

How did that happen? Horrible game design? Boring ass later levels that were less fun than tedious? Bad story? Stupid ass stupid fucking everything?

Really hate to say it, but after chapter 4, you will hate this game. It shows its sub-parness way too much by then and when you have "glass walls" that are invisible, let alone the massive amounts of '2 inch cant walkover without jumping' glitches..sigh..this game kinda sucked. :/

Really enjoyed it for awhile. Was one of my favorite games ever until I got further into the game. Dollhouse level is utter bullshit and complete faggotry.

Wish I could revoke my 90/100 I gave it for a more fitting 60/100.

EDIT: And then the slide parts? WHAT THE FUCK WERE THEY THINKING? I just watched the real Alice In Wonderland twice (not the shitty remake with Johnny Depp) and she NEVER slid down anything. SHE FELLL. The horrible parts where you have to dodge random splooge areas of dark matter? REALLY? I mean REALLY?! They were obviously low budget and they thought those horrible parts were...FUN?

No. Just no.
LMAO I really enjoyed reading this. Thanks for enligthen me.

I will always look fondly upon this game. Was it perfect? No, but then, what is? It was different, and that alone is enough for me. It was beautiful, and considering I generally suck at platforming, I didn't run into any overly frustrating parts, and certainly didn't encounter any glitches. However, as others have said, I would definitely recommend playing the first one beforehand, not so much for the story, but because it doesn't hold up as well to the sequel.

The repetition is what made this game sort of 'meh' and easier after the first 2-3 hours. But the game overall was pretty good. I actually enjoyed it!
