Yesterday at an EA preview event I was able to get some substantial play time with Alice Madness Returns. As a huge fan of the original game, I can’t say I’m disappointed with what the sequel is offering at all.
It starts off with a bang. This game is all about recovering memories, and plot kicks off with you following an emanciated cat through some winding, and stunningly-realised streets in the real world. American McGee and his team have done a stunning job of building a fairy tale world where everything looks and feels just slightly off. Characters are detailed and well animated, but all look like they’ve come directly from a Grimm fairytale visualisation.
