Finally decided to give Alice: Madness Returns a try.
I never got around to playing the original, which is... Bad form, yeah. I'd always been intrigued by the franchise but for some reason or another never got around to actually picking it up.
About half way through, and so far I'm really enjoying it. I'm not sure if the storytelling is just confused (given the premise I guess that's really appropriate buuut.. The introduction of plot elements and occasional dips from reality back to Wonderland are jarring and difficult to understand in terms of why and how, though maybe I'm not reading into it deep enough) or it's the fact that I don't have previous game experience to lay a foundation for what's unfolding, but the gameplay and maps make up for it. Speaking of which, the maps are gorgeousdeargodsopretty.
It's not earth-shaking as an overall package, but it's a ton of fun and I like it a lot.
