American McGee's Alice

released on Dec 06, 2000

Shortly after her second adventure, Through the Looking-Glass, Alice's house is burnt down by an accidental fire, killing her family and leaving her as the only survivor. As time progresses Alice loses touch with reality. She is institutionalized in Rutledge Asylum, where she is observed and treated by Dr. Heironymous Wilson. Alice's only possession in Rutledge is a stuffed rabbit. Ten years after Alice was committed to Rutledge, she finds herself sucked back into a Wonderland that has been twisted by her own broken mind. The White Rabbit summons Alice to aid a radically altered Wonderland, which became a twisted version of itself as it came under the horrible rule of the Queen of Hearts. The Cheshire Cat serves as Alice's companion throughout the game, frequently appearing to guide her with cryptic comments.

Honestly I don’t get how you can’t love this game. Sure the platforming is utter dog shit just grow up

La aventura de una Alice destruida por su terrible pasado y la muerte de sus padres la cual siempre atribuyó a su culpa, la hacen dar un paseo por su mente, como refugio que construyó contra la terrible realidad. La realidad ahora es tan dura que ha acabado con ese refugio "país de las maravillas", donde proyecta los aspectos más relevantes de su vida en el psiquiátrico. La historia nos cuenta el paso de Alice por su propia mente arreglando sus problemas y enfrentándose contra sí misma.

Lo que ha envejecido mal de este juego son sus controles, los cuales pueden volver un poco abrumador el juego, además de que los últimos niveles se vuelven monótonos y bien pudieron ser recortados para enfrentarnos directamente a los jefes finales.

I fucking Love this game man, you can feel so much love and passion went into it and the animation work blows my mind still, it's just a solid platformer shooter with a very genuine story that gets ruined by it's sequel unfortunately

No le pongo tres estrellas solo por el hecho de que no sabía que podía guardar cuando quisiera y tuve que repetir secuencias gigantes una y otra vez.

It's genuinely impressive how bad the platforming feels, like perfectly engineered to feel totally wrong. The jump arc looks off, the momentum feels weightless, the animation is stiff, it all congeals into something that sucks so bad to do it makes the Dark Souls O-button throttling jump seem great.

You don't play this for the gameplay though, this is about atmosphere and art direction, which are masterful. Genuinely brilliant. Plus an incredible Chris Vrenna OST with vocals by Jessicka of JOJ, this is a goth teenager's dream game, and as someone who listened to a lot of Sisters of Mercy in high school I would know.

Amazing atmosphere, music and world desing... BUT the gameplay is rough, you can play quite good till the last part of the game when the difficulty turns crazy and absurd just to the gameplay. I have to save game more than 200 times for not start again in the beginning of the area. The platforms and the combat can be better for the 2000. Anyway, it was a good game :)
