American McGee has confirmed that Alice: Madness Returns will ship this summer with code to download the original 2000 PC platformer – in all formats.
Alice: Madness Returns will feature the original Alice, according to Spicy Horse boss American McGee. Speaking to CVG, McGee said, “A person who has purchased Madness Returns will receive a download code and be able to bring Alice 1 to their console and play the entire original game alongside Madness Returns.”
You can watch a Let’s Play of the first one if you need the story. It hasn’t really aged well in terms of gameplay. The first game is better, but it’s also very outdated. There aren’t really any plot details that assume you’ve played the first game, IMO.
The last entry in the series was Alice: Madness Returns in 2011, a sequel to American McGee’s 2000 Alice.
The cult favorite Alice: Madness Returns becomes backward compatible for Xbox One. If you’re an Xbox One owner and fancy going a little crazy, listen up. Alice: Madness Returns is now available via backwards compatibility.
The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Madness Returns are bundled for free with a remake of American McGee’s Alice.
If you don’t have the code, you can purchase American McGee’s Alice for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and $9.99 on PlayStation Network from the Alice: Madness Returns main menu.p>
The game was designed by American McGee, hence the game’s title, and is a macabre, unauthorized sequel to Lewis Carroll’s best-known novels Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, incorporating elements from the genres Shooters, Jump’n’Run and Horror.
Focusing on the main objectives, Alice: Madness Returns is approximately 14 hours long. If you are a gamer who aspires to see all aspects of the game, it will probably take you around 23 hours to 100% complete it.
The gameplay in Alice: Madness Returns is average, but the story and presentation are top notch. Platforming is too easy with the quadruple jumps, and combat is a bit basic but still satisfying to defeat enemies. Overall I would still recommend it.
Alice: Madness Returns is a psychological horror hack-and-slash action-adventure platform video game developed by independent studio Spicy Horse and published by Electronic Arts for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It is the sequel to American McGee’s Alice (2000).
Yes, it’s good.
Shadows of the Damned is available through backwards compatibility on PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Unfortunately, you can’t. In this game, the only way to track your progress is by auto-save. However, the game autosaves a lot and isn’t nearly as difficult as its predecessor, so you’ll probably find the autosaves sufficient.
American McGee’s Alice series, based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland books, has had a pretty bumpy ride over the years: there are two games, Alice (2000) and Alice : Madness Returns ( 2011), with a third currently on a Patreon queue of sorts (opens in new tab).

The action-adventure game was unavailable for several years after issues with EA’s DRM caused the game to be withdrawn from sale on the Steam store after it was released on the Origin marketplace was postponed by EA. It finally made a comeback in February 2022 – without the pesky DRM – and now it’s gone.
