It's Time to Write the Conclusion to
Your Dark Tale...
Chapter I: Wonderland Maimed
When Alice answers a distressed summons to return to
Wonderland, she barely recognizes the befouled setting. Undaunted by the
diseased ambiance, cavernous confusion, and mortal danger surrounding her,
Alice sets out to undo the chaos.
Chapter IV: An Infernal
Equipped with courage, a keen appetite foe the bizarre, and
an arsenal of transmogrified toys, she penetrates enemy strongholds, confronts
the forces of evil, and puts the wicked Queen of Hearts and her innumerable
minions in their place.
Chapter XIII: Abominations
Of the miraculous place of Alice's youth, no vestige
survives. From the Fungiferous Forest to the Mad Hatter's party and beyond,
Wonderland festers to its core. Faced with deadly creatures loyal to the Red
Queen, Alice relies on her own devices to unravel Wonderland's woe.

ActionTrip by Uros Jojic
"Alice is back in Wonderland, although this time it's not
really that much of a place for an autistic little girl who lost her parents,
as it is a world of a manically depressive Goth teenager with razorblade
attitude and a dark inward personality. Follow the white rabbit and listen to
the Cheshire Cat all over again, as Alice once again slips through the hole and
travels deep into her overworked mind
"...So, even though it's very much focused on pace
and pure gameplay elements, like platform puzzles and shooting action, American
McGee's Alice offers a touch of satire and some witty dialogues, which give
meaning and depth to the project. Much like the book, the game carries a
meaningful message for the ones willing to "listen," and it's not nearly as
one-dimensional as one might expect by reading the PR material. Also, the
musical score and outstanding voice acting really help convey the principal
idea and the atmosphere..."
"...What really impressed me about Alice's visuals is the
imaginativeness of the designers, and the highly thematic environments, which
completely differ from one level to another and are brought to life with some
crisp and detailed textures..."
