Fun and Exhilarating Storyline.
Excellent 3D Experience.
While graphics not extreme, it has a great Cartoon type look.
Beautifully dark and creepy version of Wonderland.
Smooth, graceful controls.
Unusual weapons make for fun combat.
A good length, with lots of hidden objects and areas to locate.
Can't fight with weapons while jumping.
Gameplay doesn't evolve.
Puzzles and other attempts to vary the pace are rarely fun.
Audiovisual glitches can distract.
The other versions include the original Alice; this one doesn't.
