GameSpot Reviews - Alice: Madness Returns Review (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)


  1. This was boring and platformers two decades old have done lot's of it's gameplay before and so much better. The world's were not open enough and had nothing really interesting to add to the character-world dynamics. The immersion was spoiled by how lineair it was.
    Rayman 2 had sections more unsettling than this artificial shallow thing and that's 18 years old.

  2. a fair review of this game, the original is definitely better even if this one has better combat.

  3. Just got through my first gameplay. Although the game was a bit repetitive, the art design was very original and the story was great. Combined with great controls and combat mechanics, I was entertained throughout. So much better than the original, and highly recommended.

  4. Alice, Shadows Of The Damned, Mirror's Edge, Dead Space 1, Brutal Legend, Dante's Inferno… proof that EA used to deliver good single player games. Now it's a whole different story.

  5. Some of you saying that the person who reviewed the game did not make the game justice is wrong, why? Because he's absolutely right, there are some things about the game that sometimes gives you and underwhelming experience over a triple a one, for instance finding invisible walls frequently, the structure of the game levels, I think the game is amazing graphic wise, I love the level designs, the enemies and wickedness that was out into it, you don't get to see that kind of thing often I'm games.

  6. Gamespot review quote:"Doesn't play as good as it looks"

    Are you Mad!!!!

    Alice Madness: Returns is the best thing to come out this past gen, I would consider this to be one of the best game all of time.

    This review does not do the game any justice, this is the kind of bad infuence and negativity that kills innovation and creativity in gaming.

     The reviewer is Madder than the Mad Hatter.

    This game should of won awards and praise and not this insulting review!!

    Go fuck yourself gamespot you do gaming in-justice with this pathetic attempt at selling an amazing game and experience for others.

    Believe me people the graphics in this game because it does do the game justice some reason or another people cannot see the work of Art in front of them, unless it is  Call of fucking Duty!!!

  7. Y'know, it's funny. One of the main reasons many people hated this was because it was, despite the style and some of the more creative sections, it was largely a very standard 3D platformer, even cliche'd.

    That's kinda why I like it. I grew up on 90s 3D platformers of the PS1. Crash, Croc, Spyro…this feels like a current gen throwback to those games, albeit with more mature themes. It carries a nostalgic charm to me, especially as you just don't see that many 3D platformers anymore, especially not ones with such high production values.

  8. I seriously dislike both ign and gamespots opionion on this game he can't say its not creative n thn say 2 mins later thrs so much to see

  9. Like the original book and many adaptions, the primary aspect it serves as is eye-candy. Which is not a bad thing; by the beginning of the third chapter, when everything is destroyed and gross, this is when you start to care about what you are doing. Things are better in Wonderland, and you dont want to see it destroyed. But the battles and arsenals are creative, the controls are refreshingly floaty, and the enemies are fun to kill. I also like that it isnt a typical dark Wonderland scenario.

  10. Excellent game, loved it from start to finish. Love this game a lot, however, I really hated the collecting without any guide, and I really hated American McGees Alice game…

  11. Its a great game a breath of fresh air from your everyday same ol shooters etc… Even though he says its all bland find switch then find another, thats what platforming is, use your imagination to take out enemies and break blocks etc, but after you full upgraded teeth doesnt become a necesity and becomes faster. Theres not a whole lot of games out there that comes close to the look and creativity of Malice. He says its all the same and the shrinking and sensing of invisible platforms to see couldve been done more creative? Seems creative to me, and as far as the issues he stated i havnt had texture pop in, pixilated explosions, audio glitches, etc. A.Mcgee is one of my favorite designers coming from the Doom and id software franchise what more could you expect? And Malice: Otherland is in production i pledged 5k and i have to say it looks great in pre pro. ( i like to call her Malice ) you can pledge $5-10k

  12. A fair review for a GREAT game! Well done Gamespot! And yes, I agree about American McGee's Alice being better than madness returns. I still absoloutley love them both nonetheless! XD *^_^*
