The dark and deranged fantasy/adventure Alice: Madness Returns is now available for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, letting gamers play through American McGee’s arguably twisted interpretation of the classic Alice in Wonderland fiction.
Alice: Madness Returns is the sequel to the original PC hit American McGee’s Alice, and now features a grown-up Alice finally freed from Rutledge Asylum for the Insane but still grappling with the horror and survivor’s guilt of a fire that killed her family 11. In this sequel, Alice returns to Wonderland to uncover the truth about her past, but what she finds is a sinister nightmare of a world where madness threatens to overcome both Alice and Wonderland.
