Games.macnn.com has published an in-depth preview of American McGee's Alice, the third-person 3D action/adventure game announced last week for the Mac by Aspyr Media. The four-page preview covers characters, weapons, items and gameplay in addition to many screenshots of the game in action. Here's a snippet from the preview:
Alice is filled with puzzles synonymous with other third-person 3D action/adventure games; most notably, Tomb Raider. With Alice able to jump, run, climb, grab on to ledges, swing on ropes and vines, swim and more, she'll have to put every move to work to solve jumping puzzles and more. For every gamer that cringes at the phrase "jumping puzzles", fear not. The designers cleverly added a targeting reticule that shows footprints where Alice will land before she takes the leap. This means that players will no longer have to judge how far a gap really is and how much power to give the jump to make it across and not jump over the landing. Simply line up the footprints where you want them, and hit jump.For more of this preview, be sure to head over to MacNN.
