Now, Fiance is entirely too touchy about how I played the 2nd game before beating the 1st one, but I think he's just mad that I beat Madness Returns before he did.
I very rarely do video game reviews, but this game was so absolutely fantastic that I felt compelled to share it with you all.
Of course, most of you know that I love love love Alice in Wonderland. Pretty much everything about it. The old cartoon movie. The new movie with Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter. And if I remember correctly there was a TV series back in the day. Anyways, I love it all. Before Madness Returns came out, I didn't know that there was a part 1 to the game. But part 2 looked so amazing, I skipped part 1.
This game is dark. Alice is dark. The story is dark. I love it. I mean, look at her.
It was actually pretty easy too, but Fiance and I believe that I have a depth perception problem, and this game involves a lot of jumping onto platforms and such that I think are right in front of Alice when they are actually like 10 feet away. I fell....a lot. But other than that, not too bad. She carries around a knife for slicing, a hobbit horse for smashing, a pepper sprayer thingy for shooting and a tea pot for throwing hot bombs at her opponents.
I would get so angry when I had to put the game down. It pretty much hooked me from the beginning. If I had had the time, I would have probably played for hours.
I highly recommend the game to anyone...except maybe children. It is a little...bloody. And when Alice is almost dead, she goes into Hysteria mode and she cannot be hurt, but she looks like this...
Have a great weekend everyone! Stay inside, play some Alice and beat the heat! :)
