See Wonderland Torn Aprt By Alice In Madness Returns

After seeing countless teaser trailers and bits of concept art of American McGee's Alice: Madness Returns, how does the gameplay footage stack up? It's even better.

Can Alice: Madness Returns play as good as this twisted gameplay trailer looks? Find out tomorrow, when we'll have a full preview of Alice: Madness returns tomorrow based on our experience with the game at the 2011 Game Developers Conference. Until then, just watch this over and over again.

Alice: Madness Returns is due on June 14 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

No drug trips, just fun nonsense for kids.
