Product Description

Alice: Madness Returns is an Action-Adventure game that delves deep into the dark and violent side of the imagination, creating a nightmarish Wonderland where Alice must face the demons that haunt her visions. Visit the grim reality of Victorian London and then travel to the beautiful yet ghastly Wonderland to uncover the root of Alice's madness and discover the truth behind a deadly secret, kept hidden for years. Features include: upgradable melee weapons and magic abilities, a shattered gameword filled with altered versions of Lewis Carroll's famous characters and intuitive and rewarding puzzle play.

Return to a Very Different Wonderland

Eleven years ago a horrific fire took Alice's family from her and left her mind horrifically scarred. Afterwards she was confined to Rutledge Asylum where she struggled to confront her demons by slipping slipping further into her fantasy world of Wonderland. Now, after ten years, she has finally secured her release - yet she still bears the heavy psychological burden of that tragic event.

With her mind in tatters, she is unable to resolve the fear prompted by her strange memories, dreams, and visions. Perhaps she'll do better in Wonderland. She always has. She travels there, seeking what the "real" world can't provide: security, knowledge, and the truth about the past. But in her absence, Wonderland too has suffered. Something has gone horribly wrong, and now a great evil is descending upon what once was her beautiful refuge. Can Alice save Wonderland -- and herself -- from the madness that consumes them both?

Gameplay

Alice: Madness Returns like the original 2000 game release for PC that it is a sequel to, is a third-person, single player, action game that incorporates platforming and combat gameplay. Playing as Alice players retreat into Wonderland for comfort from the real world, only to find it in even more shambles than before. Yet this world that exists in Alice's head holds the secrets to her repressed memories and the truth behind the murder of her family. Players must fight their way across this world using a mixture of melee weapons, magic and puzzle-solving and platforming skills to defeat a variety of enemy types, each with particular strengths and weakness. By besting each, players collect in-game currency that can be used to upgrade weapons and skills. In addition to combat players also must explore every corner of this strange world to find clues, messages and potions that help to literally unlock memories that will finally expose the truth behind the madness.

Key Game Features

  • Intense 3rd-person Action - Use multiple upgradeable melee weapons, including the explosive Teapot Cannon, the punishing Hobby Horse, and the classic Vorpal Blade.
  • Explore a Dark and Shattered Wonderland - Encounter familiar, but now strange characters including the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, the Caterpillar and the Red Queen.
  • Magical Abilities - Obtain peculiar abilities in Wonderland such as floating with Alice's dress, shrinking and growing to towering sizes in order to crush enemies.
  • Interactive Puzzles - Intuitive and rewarding puzzles such as transforming obstacles, musical memories chess and picture blocks.
  • A Visually unique Gameworld - Delight in the whims of the ever-changing visual aspects of the gameworld which visually affect everything in the game, including Alice and her attire.

    Edit, 1/12: a gentlemen posted a review below stating that the games don't support 360 controller for PC...he's wrong. Both games have built-in plug-and-play 360 controller support, and I can personally attest that this 'complete collection' is no different from all other editions...all that I own and use support 360 controllers with no effort, thought, or issue (I use a 360 controller exclusively, and have never had any trace of a problem using my controller with any edition of this game). I don't know why his controller isn't working, but don't let that fool you into thinking that it won't work for you...it will. If not, reply below and I will assist you (though I have no idea what the problem would be, since said gentleman provided no insight into his issue or anything he did or didn't do to attempt to resolve the problem...).

    I originally bought AMR for $8.99 some time ago; expecting nothing, I played through it four times, with 50 hours in at 99% (damn that one memory I can't find...I refuse to use YouTube to cheat). I then bought a second copy from GameStop's download service, just in case Amazon goes under or something (yes, the game is that good; of course, GameStop is probably going to go under soon, but hey, until then, I have two copies of the game).

    Today, I noticed that this version includes the original Alice, something I'd been considering spending $100 on (used copy); while you can simply go into AliceEngine.

    5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites December 21, 2012
    By K. LIU
    AMR is one of my favorite games, both for its interpretation of the Lewis Carroll story, and for its unique art direction courtesy of American McGee.

    Although the gameplay does get repetitive (there are only a few weapons); the art and story line move the plot along. Each new world is designed in extremely gorgeous detail; I ended up buying The Art of Alice: Madness Returns.

    The Steam version does NOT include the original American McGee's Alice. Since this is the Origin version, it will have the Original American McGee's Alice as well as AMR.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Alice madness returns - and the fun just got better December 19, 2012
    Verified Purchase
    I've been really surprised by how good this game is really is. everything in it, the graphics, the details like the the children's faces, the music and the outstanding environment (the graphics are somewhat artistic) makes this purchase worth way more than what i paid for... For 15$ this game is a must have, for anybody who enjoys gaming. The story is NOT for kids, don't get yourself wrong about it ;) it's dark and disturbing and scary but i enjoyed it. I'm playing it flawlessly on my laptop, it supports windows 7 64 bit and of course the xbox360 controlling pad, though it needs origin account to be downloaded into. I highly recommend this game for everyone who doubts getting it or not, it'll worth your time and money. Hope i helped! :D

    5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal game - better than the original January 12, 2013
    Verified Purchase
    Pros:
    Beautiful, well-designed environments, characters and weapons. Really shows off the detail capable on a HD PC monitor with antialiasing and anistropic filtering.
    Story fitting of American McGee
    Didn't get EA'd as bad as Mass Effect 3 did
    Love that they added customization, especially with the complete collection including DLC to use other gear (the new versions of the weapons you can equip are all awesome)
    One of the best showcases of PhysX to date, every bit of detail in PhysX enhanced particles and dynamic object movements really show you how much better a PhysX-accelerated game on PC is than it's console counterpart
    Difficulty level is perfectly balanced
    New dodge ability is totally welcomed

    Cons:
    The non-optimized PhysX system - this game will destroy your i7 CPU and < GTX600 series GPU with PhysX turned on High. Smoke and shrapnel from the peppergrinder + fluid dynamics of enemy blood/goo + 500 broken bits of the environment shattering all over the place = unplayable speeds
    Capped at 35fps like the console version (though this is easily fixed by editing the config ini file so you can enjoy 60fps)
    Controls are so-so - having Alice aim AND turn with the mouse is sometimes aggravating. Makes circle strafing difficult
    Camera never snaps to the correct POV - while others may be happy to have complete camera control freedom, there are times when you go the wrong direction because the camera was pointing behind you when you were on a higher floor level. When you drop to the next level down, the camera is still facing that direction but you are now required to go the opposite direction but cannot see what is that way and end up falling off a cliff unless you recenter the camera yourself

    4.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking Adventure January 2, 2014

    Alice is a visually inviting game. Though the hack and slash gameplay can be repetitive, the voice acting and art direction can keep a player interested.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting take on a classic
    This game is an interesting take on Alice in Wonderland. Visuals are appealing and the platformer gameplay is enjoyable. I like that the original is packaged with it.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't run!
    I could never get the game to run. You have to use origin to play it. I have contacted everyone possible and no one has helped resolve the issue. Also, no refund. Worst.
