Check out these quotes from Alice: Madness Returns reviews & previews
"Wonderland has always been near and dear to my heart, probably owing in large part to me sharing the same name as the little girl who fell down that rabbit hole oh so very many years ago. But the story of Alice traveling into her imaginary world is so full of beautiful imagery; it's a rich breeding ground from which to take creative liberties, and Alice: Madness Returns does a good job of twisting the existing material into something new and interesting, yet still instantly recognizable.

" It's been 11 years since American McGee's Alice last made her way into her dark and twisted version of Wonderland. Since then, she's grown up a bit, moved out of Ruledge Asylum, which held her when she first lost her parents to a mysterious fire and fell into madness, and is now seeing a psychiatrist to deal with her deep emotional trauma. Upon leaving the Asylum, the hallucinations that tormented her through the first game return... ..."
