Why the upcoming tie-ins might actually do Tim Burton's film justice
It's been 11 years since American McGee's Alice last made her way into her dark and twisted version of Wonderland. Since then, she's grown up a bit, moved out of Ruledge Asylum, which held her when she first lost her parents to a mysterious fire and fell into madness, and is now seeing a psychiatrist to deal with her deep emotional trauma. Upon leaving the Asylum, the hallucinations that tormented her through the first game return...
Did Alice really burn her own family to death as a child? We presume not, but who knows? She is completely, utterly mad, and as 10 years in an asylum and round-after-round of vintage therapy sessions have proven useless, only the memories she recovers in Wonderland can reveal the truth...
Back in 2000, American McGee's Alice made American McGee's really-fun-to-say name an essential entry in every PC gamer's lexicon, and in just a couple months, Alice: Madness Returns will finally leave the realm of possibility and enter the realm of in-front-of-me-for-as-many-hours-in-a-row-as-it-takes-me-to-beat-it...

The game puts you in the shoes of an elite mercenary, hired to put a lid on an army of aliens that have overrun an abandoned research facility. Mixing in some RPG elements with the alien blasting action, youll earn cash and experience points as you increase your kill count and
Segas on a roll. Skipping the obvious Monkey Ball gag, its clear that with both Sonic and the spherical simians scoring decent ratings, Sega has found a suitable format for their solid brand of game making. And it looks set to continue in this RPG re-imagining of the 1987 game of the same name.
Players select one of five classes - Demo Expert, Firebug, SEAL, Sharpshooter or Tank - each with allotted skills and abilities. Demo experts fumble with a pistol in their hands while the big booms will
In space no-one can hear you scream. But in the gaming room of Oxford-based developer Rebellion’s head office everyone can. Sitting mere meters away from the world’s largest TV screen with the lights down low and the volume up high, Aliens vs Predator is a very scary game.
It’s also a very ambitious game. Each species (humans, Aliens and Predators) gets its own campaign, control method and even screen furniture.
Alex Moore gave us a moment of his time at last week's E3 to tell us all about Aliens vs. Predator (and put up with our antics). Listen below to hear the latest gab about the game, straight from the Lead Designer.
Aliens Vs Predator is being shown behind closed doors at Gamescom in Cologne, demonstrating Alien gameplay for the first time. Here's what we thought.
