ahrhi said: Oh my god, American McGee's Alice! That game changed my life; did you play the sequel when it came out a few years ago?
I didn’t! D: But I’ve seen parts of walkthroughs on YouTube and it looks gorgeous. Have you played it? Was it good? I’m not sure I heard anything about the game itself.
The first one, at least, is a game I would LOVE to revisit. I spent HOURS playing that.
It was SO beautiful. Like … Oh, I can’t even begin to say. It’s easily the most graphically pleasing game I’ve ever played, though I’m super biased because I really enjoy that aesthetic.
I really enjoyed the gameplay, though. It kept some of the qualities of the first game—the multiple weapons sort of thing, mostly, and though it’s definitely disturbing, it didn’t come across as gory as the first one. I was also only about 8 or 9 when I experienced the first one, though, and I haven’t really gone back to re-experience it. (I used to get my dad to play it for me; I would hide behind his shoulder at the scary parts, I’m not ashamed.)
There are definitely some legitimate criticisms of the game, but I was incredibly pleased with it overall. It definitely gave me that same “eeee send an adult” feeling that the first one did.
If you’re looking to watch a full walkthrough at any point, I enjoyed this one.
Aaaaah! It sounds amazing! And thank you for the link! I have a tendency to procrastinate with walkthroughs, so :x
I used to sit and watch my brother—who is about 4 years younger than me—play Resident Evil, so I readily admit to letting other people deal with scary things. And there were parts in the first Alice that were intense. The Queen of Hearts? The centipede? Okay, let’s be honest, all of the boss fights period. D:
But the entire game is so well designed! I LOVE the aesthetic. Thinking about it…I actually think this may have been the first—one of the first?—games I ever actually finished all the way through. (That wasn’t on a single game handheld device.)
