Alice: Madness Returns
Alice in Wonderland is a story that pretty much everyone is familiar with, girl follows a rabbit down a hole and goes on a crazy adventure. In 2000, PC gamers got the chance to see what it would be like if the adventure was a hell of a lot more crazy and dark. The game was praised by critics and it wasn’t long before planning for a sequel began. Unfortunately, the sequel was put on hold after the movie, yeah that’s right movie, fell through. 11 years on, players will get to revisit this insane wonderland as the sequel has finally come.The first game follows Alice who has been driven insane by the death of her parents in a fire. She then lives in a mental institution, where she loses touch with reality and one day she arrives in Wonderland, the events of the original books have already taken place, only to find that it was been warped by her tortured mind.
The second game takes place 11 years after the first, which is the real life gap between the games. In this time Alice has managed to remain sane, but is still seeing a psychiatrist. Alice begins to remember suppressed memories and is soon dragged back into the Warped Wonderland, where she must fight her way out, using a variety of weapons.
The game will be released on the 14th of June in America and the 16th of June in Europe. It’s coming out for PS3, PC, Mac and Xbox 360. PS3 and Xbox editions will come with a one use only code that grants you a free download of the original game; it’s unclear whether something similar will be included with the PC and Mac versions. The game looks great and with the added bonus of getting the original for free, it’s pretty much a must buy game. That is, unless you’re not in to completely insane third person action games.
The trailers all do a really good job of selling the game. The graphics are stunning and the action is great. You can see Alice kicking ass with everything from a rabbit bomb to a machine gun.
