    WTF, I could not find a Alice The Madness Returns thread.

    This game looks absolute ****ing crazy and twisted just my cup of tea. The Soundtrack is by the NIN dude... rocking. Pre ordered mine now and im getting the soundtrack as part of my pre order bonus :)

    This must be a follow up to Magee's Alice.

    Check out these insane vids:

    There was THIS thread about it having PhysX, but I'm sure the reviewers will tell us about it this week.

    IIRC Chris Vrenna only made one song on this new Alice game. He did the ost of the first one, though
    I'm also looking forward to playing it, I loved the first one.

    For some reason despite enjoying the original Alice demo I never bought the full game so I pre-ordered this sequel as soon as I could to ensure I didn't make the same mistake again! I have to say that it looks visually very distinctive and beautiful yet ultimately bizarre, like something Tim Burton would make if he made video games.

    I never bought the first game, I thought it was for kids at the time. Boy was I wrong

    Console versions of Madness Returns come with a free HD copy of the original Alice which is a really nice bonus. Dunno whether to buy the 360 version now - it looks very, very good in the YouTube vids I've seen; it's hard to believe the game uses Unreal Engine 3 after the bland awfulness of Hunted: The Demon's Forge's visuals - as I doubt the original PC version will work with a 360 controller.

    Does the PC version come with this HD remake does anyone know?

    The pc version comes with a HD remake of original Alice if you buy the digital download from the EA website. $49.99

    I don't think it's a HD update, store page says it's the original version.

    Should have my copy tomorrow, can't wait to play it. I played the first one years ago but I never finished it.

    So many great games coming out.

    I started watching a 'let's play' for this game (xbox 360 I think) on Youtube. Holy s#*t, it's twisted...in a good way. Some very high production values and great art style going on in this one.

    Gamespot gave the game 7/10 and IGN gave it 6.5/10 (for Xbox) They said the while the level design sucked the combat it great... Well im buying the game no matter what.

    Heh, it's using a release date check.

    Still it might be possible to work around it.

    Average reviews so far but I like the criticism, very odd and twisted as with the first game though with sub-par AI and combat (As with the first again.) though controls are more sluggish on the PC version unfortunately but being UE3 that can be easily edited.

    PC version has PhysX does it not? Looks quite lovely from what I've seen of it and I welcome anything that isn't yet another military/SF-themed shooter. Looking forward to playing it. Apparently the PC version looks a lot better graphically than the console versions, even without PhysX.

    Yeah it have PHSx , OFF, LOW, MED and HIGH. I didn't check if it was using my SLI, but with PHSX at HIGH in 1080p, maxed it, it was pretty fluid.. 60fps i'am pretty sure..

    So which version is worth getting ? Xbox 360 or the PC one ? (The 360 comes with the old game)

    A shame the developers did'nt use the havok engine, would have been nice to have those effects for AMD users as well.
