American McGee's Alice review
Exceptional
by Keravanjoki

It’s not a game, it’s a piece of art. Dark, quirky, frightening art full of music and innovative visual solutions.
 

There’s also a good variety of weapons with some unique pieces. For one, there’s a jumping jack that bounces and hits enemies rapidly. I love the jack in the box that you can use like grenade or something like a trap.

The gameplay is plain ‘run and gun’, but the level design, effects and bosses with weaknesses to find make it quite compelling.

I was very disappointed with the ending. Such effort and time, all for CG video that explains nothing and even looks dull. It’s either programmers were rushing to release the game, so they came up with the ending in 30 minutes, or I just don’t get it - which is what often happens with every work of art.
