classic into a masterpiece

on 1/15/2013

This game has completely frozen 3 times on my Wii...something that no other game has ever done. I didn't know the Wii was even capable of freezing because I've never had a problem with it. However, when the gameplay works properly, it's a lot of fun. You play as all of the different characters in the movie - Dormouse, White Rabbit, March Hare, Mad Hatter, and Cheshire Cat - as you guide Alice through Underland on her journey back home. Read More

The game "Alice in Wonderland" is based on the 2010 Tim Burton movie of the same name. Those looking for a game that simulates the original Disney version of Alice in Wonderland should look to the old Game boy Color Game. This game follows a grown up Alice as she returns to Underland to stop the wicked Red Queen and the Jabberwocky from destroying the White Queen & her followers. you will like this game. Read More

Product Overview

Lewis Carroll's famous story of Alice and her adventures after falling down a rabbit hole. Following a white rabbit, she meets such strange creatures as a talking doorknob, who helps her through a keyhole into Wonderland; Tweedledum and Tweedledee, who tell the story of "The Walrus and the Carpenter"; the Caterpillar; and the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, who celebrate an unbirthday at their tea party. Finally Alice has a showdown with the Queen of Hearts and her army of playing cards. The whole thing becomes such a nightmare that Alice awakens from her dream to the recitations of her sister and the purring of her cat, Dinah.

Review When compiling a list of places one would rather not visit, the mind of Tim Burton might well make that lineup. Burton has made, or envisioned, some rather bizarre places and taken movie-goers on fantastic rides. To think his treatment of Alice in Wonderland would be more commonplace would be erroneous...Nothing could be stranger, or darker, than American McGee's Alice, but the game that has released to bank on a multi-media blitz with the movie is not the story or world Lewis Carroll wrote about...Alice, it should be noted, is not one of the five playable characters in this game. Instead, players get to use the Rabbit and Dormouse, the March Hare, the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter. Each character has different abilities and switching between characters is as easy as hitting the C button. For example, the White Rabbit -- who coincidentally swings an oversized pocket watch in combat -- can freeze time. This comes in handy early on as he, the Dormouse and Alice try to navigate a maze that has a nasty root-based creature that will harangue the trio and block the path through the maze. The solution to this mini-puzzle is rather easy. Get the creature to pop up at the end furthest from the exiting path, use the point to illuminate the creature (in this case, it has a blue light cast over it), then hit the Z button on the nunchuck and rotated the Wii-mote in a clockwise way. That action freezes time, allowing the trio to move through to the exit without too much damage. Players can jump between unlocked characters by hitting the C button, and the game also feature cooperative play, and a second player can jump in during the actual game play by hitting the 1 button and enabling the 2-player mode...Alice in Wonderland is not a deep game and is slightly off-kilter from the beloved children's story, but while the game is rather ordinary in many regards, it is still slightly entertaining, if only because the environments are done well...Graphically this game scores well, and though the overall gameplay is nothing that has not been experienced before, the game still has a nice rhythm to it. It is what it is -- a game adaptation of a movie, slightly offbeat, but accessible.

Features Animated feature had been on Walt's mind since 1933, when he considered a live-action version starring Mary Pickford. He shelved the project after Paramount made a version, but later had artist David Hall, a Hollywood artist and designer, create some concepts for an all-animated film. World War II intervened, and it was not until the late 1940s that work began again in earnest. One of Walt's big problems with this film was that here he was dealing with a highly regarded classic, and what was charming and appropriately bizarre in book form seemed oddly out of place on the motion picture screen. Walt's feeling, expressed in later years, was that "Alice" had no "heart."
