I'm late for a very important game

Looking for your money's worth? Well, Alice Madness Returns is a long game, and I can see most people taking longer than 15 hours to complete. That’s overly long for the content but hey at least it’s pretty-pretty. Developer Spicy Horse is obviously aware of this as it tries to spice things up with insanely easy and relieving optional mini-games.

Alice: The Madness Returns

Sail away, sail away, sail away

The only low points of this surreal ride were that my frame-rate tended to be unstable, jumping from 30 frames a second down to nine. I have a pretty high spec machine so really I would expect it to be running constantly at around 30 and not have this fluctuation.

Verdict

There is no doubt I found Alice: Madness Return fun to play and eye-ravishing to look at. CoD fanboys need not apply. Fans of the Neil Gaiman and Tim Burton will love it. This will definitely make my top ten this year, and Spicy Horse should lauded for creating something so stunning and downright sexy. Come on, join me in this Danse Macabre. ®
