One great buy

The Alice series is a great one that for some reason has not sparked a huge market. This game is pretty much a dark platformer and action/adventure version of the children's story Alice in Wonderland. The game and story are well done. Alice Madness Returns is one of the first few games that incorporated Nvidia Physx into the game. Physx is a particle and water rendering system that makes things more life-like or just cooler. This game does not have a huge amount of it in the game due to it being one of the earlier to support it, but it helped enhance the experience. This pack is amazing because it includes BOTH the original and madness returns games. Both are great in their own respect, but I find Madness Returns to be better, not simply for the newer graphics and Physx, but for the gameplay itself. It seems much smoother. The game does have a few bugs where you might get stuck and have to reload a save, but usually it takes you back to where it would if you died so you don't loose much progress at all. The extras for the Madness Return game are kind of nice to have, but really you are buying this pack for the two games and not the DLC. This pack is usually on sale for less than buying Madness Returns on its own so your best deal is actually to get more for less with this pack. Grab it on sale (like it is right now for $7.50) and you just got two amazing games for a steal and a some extras to boot. This game is great for anyone who enjoys the darker side of children's stories. I loved this game and it is one of my more favorite recent games. I give it a 95 simply because those bugs can get very annoying and the dresses in the DLC are kind of a sales ploy and worthless to the game play.


Worth it for players that are big on environments

The game play can get a little repetitive sometimes, but the amazing art and environment keep you busy. Its worth the sale price!


Get it even if for the graphics and bonuses alone!

Alice: Madness Returns is a great 3d action game with some puzzles included. And even if it was not for the gameplay, the game would be worth playing for the visual side alone. The authors managed to create a believable yet surreal world, in which Alice tries to collect lost dreams. Whoever hasn't seen this world yet, should do it! And if the game alone was not enough, then there's Alice: Madness Returns - The Complete Collection. It includes the game and some very nice additions, especially items usable in the game: new dresses and weapons. But the one bonus that really made it special to me was the original American McGee’s Alice game, which is included as a bonus, and remains as interesting and enjoyable as it was in the early 2000s.


Collection to a solid Alice game

This is one of those solid hack and slash game featuring Alice, the sequel to the to the original Alice game from long time ago. Similar to any type of action games, you control Alice in the stage and you are tasked to hack and slash your way to the end point of the stage to unfold the story. Throughout the game you will visit a lot of colorful and dark places that Alice will need to use her arsenal of equipments and skills to get past.In addition, there are puzzles for the players to solve but majority of these are relatively easy puzzle that won't serve as much of a challenge. This package also contains all the DLCs that were released for the games including weapons and outfits that Alice can have access to. If you enjoyed the original Alice then you will love this entry with the updated graphic and the continuation of an excellent story
