  1. If you’ve got pre-teen kids they are going to love this game and the co-op mode will allow you to join in the fun. When the kids are not around, and you think nobody else is looking, pop the disc in yourself. You just never know what you’re going to find down that rabbit hole.
  2. Alice in Wonderland is an appropriate game for young and old. You get a cool story, a nice atmosphere and a pretty cool gameplay. All in all, it is an appealing action-adventure.
  3. Imaginative accompaniment to a Tim Burton's reimagining of the children's classic. [Apr 2010, p.82]
  4. Alice in Wonderland's gameplay evolves around a simple concept: you have a number of characters with different abilities, and you must use them in combination to overcome obstacles. As you go through the adventure and the group grows, the puzzles become more complex and fascinating. A pity you can beat the game in less than six hours.
  5. Graphically this game scores well, and though the overall gameplay is nothing that has not been experienced before, the game still has a nice rhythm to it. It is what it is – a game adaptation of a movie, slightly offbeat, but accessible.
  6. Freedom and individuality. [Apr 2010, p.89]
  7. It's a family friendly fun romp that's inoffensive and visually interesting with a nice quirky style. Just don't expect a great co-op time unless you can work together within a tight camera angle. This is one Wii game that's better to play on your own.

    Alice in Wonderland is a delightful change of pace from the usual drivel the Wii churns out from third party developers. The environments are faithful to the movie; the adventure is fun and diverse enough for kids to enjoy, and the focus on making the game accessible all serve it well. This is one game that manages to satisfy all of the criteria of being a solid movie tie-in while not sacrificing the normal quality aspects to get there.
  9. Alice in Wonderland is an example of how movie tie-ins should work. The game manages to capture some of the magic seen in the film and most importantly, it doesn’t suck.
  10. A well structured platform, with few original ideas that supports a fair designed backtracking. One of the best tie-in in the last years, even if the Wii version is not blessed by the brilliant art style of the portable one.

    Alice in Wonderland for Wii is a decent licensed game, with a few fun and original elements. Visually, it also manages to deliver. The boring fights, low difficulty and repetitive gameplay are a blow to its aspirations as a top game. Too much potential was left untouched. Are you willing to look past these flaws, then you’ll be getting plenty of fun to justify a purchase.
  12. If you can stand the combat, the rewards abound on the other side of this looking glass.

    It's actually a little frustrating to see a game with some solid ideas end up losing itself in mindless repetition and overuse of some very neat ideas.
  14. A nice game adaptation. Alice in Wonderland's the sequel to the original story, and this game tries to capture the atmosphere of the latest Tim Burton's film. Its a nice way to enjoy with the characters of the movie, an interesting buy if you're a fan of the latest Alice adventure.

    With Alice in Wonderland you find yourself in a strange fairy tale, a story you will complete too quickly and one that has little depth. But thanks to the co-op the game offers plenty of fun for children.
  16. This psychedelic puzzle-laden action adventure displays plenty of promise, but repetitive combat ensures that it falls well short of its potential.
  17. Alice in Wonderland is a game that, as its young protagonist, loses itself on the road. Beyond good graphics you can find a game with nice ideas but none of witch developed enough concentrating to much on being a boring button smashing game. In the end a game enjoyable for the movie fans only.
  18. Sometimes you enter a rabbit hole and all you find is dirt, worms and rabbit droppings. [Apr 2010, p.63]

    This is by far the best platforming game on the Wii. If you haven't dusted off your Wii, the time is now for this game. Being a 41 year old Male gamer, I didn't think Alice on the Wii would appeal to me, but since my Wii was just collecting dust, I thought at least if I didn't like the wife would. Well, I love this game. It is your standard platforming. There are color coded puzzles that may make you think simplicity, but just because the game tells you what character to use by highlighting the item with a color, it will still take some thought to solve some of the puzzles. Graphics are on par with a decent PS2 game, which is welcome considering most graphics on the Wii have been more on par with PS1 Games, so even the graphics were a pleasant surprise. The voice acting sounds like the characters from the movie. The pacing is up to the user. You can move as fast or as slow as you like. Almost all the grass and tree's is destructible, aka Zelda chopping grass. You will need to do this to acquire the little jewels that pop out, as this currency is used to bring you back to life. Run out of jewels and game over. For those Lego freaks out there, they will spend hours upon hours chopping grass, tree's, fences, flipping rocks and such. The only really BIG down side to this game is the camera. The camera can get lost, and while fighting the card soldiers it can cost you your life many times, but as long as you chop tons of grass and such you will keep coming back to life. This is a must purchase for any Wii owner who enjoys a good platforming game. Forgive the few camera issues and you are all set for a great adventure of Alice in Wonderland! Full Review »

    Far from the usual license game. Cool visuals, considering the pretty poor graphic performance of the Wii.
