    Even with some other big games coming up for this year, I'd say this game is probably the one I'm most looking forward to playing.

    Only recently I managed to get the original game, as I did not manage to play the game when it came out in first place.

    Well, tomorrow's the day!

    Who else plans on picking this up tomorrow?

    I'm very excited despite the few crappy reviews that are already out there.

    Yup, the official Playstation Magazine and Game Informer thus far, although the Game Informer review had me wondering if the guy who reviewed it has ever played a platformer before.

    I wonder what that dude thought about some of the bits of God of War III? lol

    Played a few hours of Madness last night. AWESOME stuff. :D 

    Played about an hour of the first game and can definitely see why it has its cult status. American McGee is simply radder than Megaforce.

    buy one get one doesnt count for alice of dotm, i tried :( 

    i like this comes with a dowload of the original, would have been sweet if they could ahve ported the other one even straight up for an extra 5 bucks i would still buy it.

    that said, i am only a little into the game and its ok. figured it would be alot like the computer version from years ago, hack and slash, crazy weapons.

    graphics are ok.

    enjoying it so far.

    ^^^^

    Me too, the game, so far is a blast. I've only played about an hour of gameplay but its just such a nice change of pace for me.

    The environment is alive and rich, love the accents, and its just a joy to play. I really needed something like this because i'm having FPS burnout.

    Also, the addition of Alice 1 for free is amazing. I can't wait to finish 2 and play part 1 all over again. Now that is a bad ass deal if you ask me!

    Worth the 60:2c: 

    EDIT: Yeah, Target stonewalled me too. It seems some Targets are letting it go, other locations are being DIcks. I went to two Targets today, the first one was allowing people to buy Alice and another game for 50% off but they just sold the LAST copy as soon as I walked up. So I was SOL there, ended up driving to another Target, purchased Alice there and the manager said the deal didn't include Alice.

    LAME!!! They should of been more specific on the ad, it said

    "Buy one, get one 50% off. Choose from over 100 titles, including this one shown. Release dates subject to change. Lowest priced game will be 50% off. Offer quantities limited; no rain checks".

    The Manager took it as, only those games pictured (just 3), but what about the 100's part? Anyhow, I didn't argue, I just picked up Alice and a Sony Bluetooth headset for 37 bucks.

    Damn this game is fun. It's been a while since I played a game with proper, fun and challenging platforming. When I fall to my death, I really want to try it again rather than throw my controller at the TV. lol

    And the hidden rooms / pig snouts are fun to find. And, oh yeah, Hobby Horse FTW! :D

    What bothers me is that so far there is no guide book. Now don't jump the gun, i usually never use a guide book for the ifrst playthrough, but I get them as I collect games and game books. I am missing the book from the first game. Anyone have one or know where I get a guide book for the first game without paying an arm and a leg??
