Colorwind Reviews Alice: Madness Returns–One Pill Makes You Larger and One Pill Makes You Small

Oh Alice. You’re a childhood memory to all. The splendors of Wonderland and its inhabitants are staples of the imagination. The colloquial collection of colors and the spontaneous sentiments of the strange denizens of this domain are now common characters that are a part of fairytale folklore. The popular Disney film gave us a visual representation of Wonderland first hand and its beauty was now interpreted for us all to see.

It’s true that all things come to an end and what goes up must come down. Later as adults, we learn of the drug overtones and more perverse aspects of the tale. The famous Jefferson Airplane song “White Rabbit” is now a classic looking glass view of the counter culture’s idea of Wonderland. Disney has a new film now showcasing an older Alice and a distressed Wonderland. The once benevolent Queen of Hearts is now a clear antagonist and threat to Wonderland. “Down with the bloody, red queen” as it were. Alice becomes more adult as the whimsy is replace by cold, harsh truth. Will truth destroy Wonderland? Will Alice’s adult life and tribulations shattered the beautiful imaginative land? What used to be colorful and fantastically has become hellish and depraved. The fun adventure has turned into an arduous journey. The dream is now a nightmare. Oh Alice. What have you done?

Most Anticipated Game of June 2011

The winner is…

Alice: Madness Returns

I’ve read previews and seen the trailers and I’m very excited for this game. I have the original that came out 11 years ago and I enjoyed it a lot. Specifically, the world it created gave Wonderland (Underland) such a scary yet intriguing spin on the original idea of the place. I excited for how the combat mechanics have improved, especially since the combat in the first game was lackluster.
