Preview: American McGee's Alice: Madness Returns

Alice: Madness Returns is the sequel to 2000's American McGee’s: Alice. Fans of the series have been waiting over a decade for their next trip to Wonderland. Trailers, previews and interviews all pointed to the game being everything we've been waiting for. G4's Adam Sessler reviewed the game; it didn't live up to his expectations.

"I found myself quite taken with the game in the beginning. As a huge fan of traditional platformers, it was a pleasure to find myself gauging jumps. I enjoyed the timed movement and environmental puzzles with reliable controls, and even in sections later on, there is a fleeting sense of awe in the layout of the design, especially the preamble to the Queen of Hearts lair.

Unfortunately, those moments are only punctuations in an overly pedantic design that never generates much surprise and so-closely adheres to similar structures and tropes from chapter to chapter that no one moment stands out from the next. When compared to a game like Super Mario Galaxy, which found a way to make every level distinct using a simple control set, the limitation of the core action of Madness Returns shows its extreme limitation"

Is Alice: Madness Returns the game you've been waiting for? Find out in our full review.
