Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Alice: Madness Returns - PC (Video Game)
My niece and I have been playing and site-seeing inside this game for several hours yesterday. We are both addicted to it now, the game is so beautiful (and scary... and disturbing!). My teen niece just loves how pretty Alice looks, she really enjoys all the different outfits Alice wears. She plays in Nightmare mode (most difficult) and is starting to kick the bad guys' azzes pretty efficiently.
I'm pleasantly surprised that this game runs smooth as silk on my $150 Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 video card with all graphics settings at max, including 1920x1200 resolution and PhysX at high. Yes, the game's PhysX feature seems to work fine on my non-Nvidia card. I love the realism of Alice sloshing around the oil puddles that monsters spew, kicking away fallen rocks at her feet, and shuffling pieces of paper on the floor as she walks across them. The volumetric smoke/steam/dust in this game looks very realistic on my system.
Alice's arsenal includes these two never before mentioned weapons: the Vorpal Cleaver and the Octo-grinder. Hey, how come I've never heard or read about these two cool weapons anywhere before?
Overall, my niece and I are highly impressed and very happy with this game. My only gripe... they didn't put enough hair on Alice, she needs at least twice as many strands as she now has. Her hair is so sparse and stiff that you can clearly see the doll-hair effect on her scalp as she moves.

Your hair issue is due to the AMD video card. It looks great with an Nvidia card with PhysX enabled. AMD cards do not support that feature.
