ALICE: MADNESS RETURNS (MA)
PC, $89.95; PS3/Xbox 360, $109.95
★★★★ Set in a grim world where Alice has been driven mad by the deaths of her parents, Madness Returns sees our heroine venture back into Wonderland to fight the abominations that have claimed it and discover the truth about her past. The art direction is inspired, which helps make the extensive platforming and solid combat more engaging than it might have been. Wonderland twists abound, too. Out now.
