is sofa king awesome. Been waiting something like eleven years for a sequel to the original, and this game delivers the good.

Good to know it delivers. I probably won't be playing it for a long while, but I was a big fan of the original.

'Course, after several hours the game starts feeling very samey, repetitive, and so on. Compared to the first game, the level designs and architecture are rather weak. It's still an awesome game with a lot going for it, but it doesn't hold a candle to the original. The original is a game where you just have fun slowly walking through the levels looking at everything.

I plan on getting this when I have the chance. I was at Best Buy a few days ago, but decided to get Shadows of the Damned instead. I'll pick this up later. I'm glad it includes the original Alice game, which I've never played Happy

Final verdict on the game? I've got a computer that can run it now.

It's good. I still hold to the opinion that level design and gameplay can get repetitive, but overall it's a cool experience. Worth picking up cheap if y'can. Apart from controls, it ain't got shit on the first game, though.

I think it's around $30 on Amazon. Haven't check out ebay yet. I really like the original game (might actually install that on here tonight) so I can't imagine being very disappointed by this one from what I've heard.

I just wish the level designs had been less lazy and the music less ambient. I would have really liked for the score to be done entirely by Chris Vrenna akin to the first game. Then again, Vrenna's one tune in the game is one of the least interesting, so perhaps he wouldn't have gone in the original direction.

I love how the voice actors for Alice and Cheshire return. But the latter acts differently most of the time: his voice is almost Captain Pickardian. He sometimes does the more creepy voice from the first game, though. It's still an awesome performance, though. That guy is super rad. Cheshire Cat, Mojo Jojo, and the mufuggin' phone voice from the Scream films. Talented, varied dude.

Well, would be great if I could play it. I've spent like the last 2 hours installing and uninstalling because it wouldn't work the first time. Then my grandmother came... I went to go talk to her. When I come back the god damn game is running but it was frozen. Now I can't get it to open again. Plain

I read online that other people had issues with the game on Windows 7...

Got it to run. Only played it for a few minutes to make sure everything was working. Got other work to do. Looks really nice, though. Look forward to actually getting into it.

Cool little game. I played for an hour or so. Was having some frame rate issues. It was basically unplayable. For one certain setting I had to back all the way out of the game to adjust it. After I made that one change, it started running pretty damn smoothly. They just start throwing TONS of shit on screen at once and it can really bog you down.

Look forward to getting further into it. I dig it so far.

I'll consider it it then. It's on sale on steam for 15 for the weekend deal.

I saw the sale as well and considered getting it. But, even if I bought it today, I probably wouldn't play it for a couple of months.

Gonna wait for the Christmas sale and see if it's lower then.

This pretty much for me too. I know I won't play it anytime soon if I buy it. tongue
