I saw this while looking through the Ultimate Editions section on PSN. Not sure if this is an unadvertised sale or normal price?

I saw the regular edition a few months ago I think for almost the same price. I guess the lesson here is it pays to wait sometimes :)

Pulled the trigger and regular game and DLC shows as purchased, good deal.

It's not a new sale, but just the result of the price never being returned back to the regular price from when it was this price back in November.

I've passed on this game in countless Steam sales and such so I think I'll pick it up at this price. Thanks OP.

Nice!  Older titles that I've always wanted to try out, but never got around to it.  This comes with the original Alice also, if I'm not mistaken.  My gaming backlog is growing out of control, oh well, it is what it is.

Not a very good game. Played it and LOVED the art style, designs, idea, etc but the execution was very poor.

FYI not the creators fault. Apparently the game was going to be MUCH better but EA rushed them and boom. Another victim of impatience.

The hair tech on Alice is the coolest part of the game. Not to knock its art.

I liked these games, first one was a bit better.  Second was definitely pretty though.  Worth a shot for 3 dollars.

I traded in my physical PS3 copy of this game at Gamestop two years ago when it went for a lot. I don't know if it's rare or not, but I really didn't enjoy it very much. Yet I would rebuy it for $3. Probably shouldn't have deleted my saves but I never planned to own it again.

For those on the fence I HIGHLY recommend this game. Especially at this price!

Nice find OP! Been wanting to play this game for a while now, but the price hasn't really dropped all that much.

It also includes the original game which is more of a shooter-platformer hybrid whereas Madness returns relies more on melee (at least in the beginning that I have played so far).

 

Original Alice review.

If this is another mistake, I noticed Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner Raidou Kuzunoha vs the Soulless Army is still $5.

Really unique game, some gameplay issues. Completely worth 3 bucks though!

It's an above average game, but lasts waaay too long, so it gets very repetitive.

Highly recommend this game.  All the different level designs were very interesting and fun to platform on (favorite was the floating card castles in the sky).  One of the few games I was willing to go back and get all the collectibles for the platinum.

Grabbed this for this price a few psn sales ago. Yes, it includes the original Alice game. Totally worth it, IMO.

I am tempted but PSN is going to make me add $5 to my wallet to get this.  Since I have nothing to spend the last $2 on and I really wasn't interested in this enough to pay $5 before I guess I will pass.... I don't have the harddrive space for this anyways.

 

Unless there is a way I can just add the $3?

I am pretty sure I played through the original, and liked it well enough.  Played a bit (most?) of Madness Returns and also seemed to like it well enough.  I never did go back and finish it though.

Thanks! I've never played this game before, but remember seeing it in stores a lot and what not. After reading everyone's posts and seeing it comes with both the original, and the 2nd game, i decided to go ahead and purchase it with my pending wallet funds. I can't possibly complain for $3.

 

Thanks again! Can't wait to play it when i get home after work~

I want this but if I grab it I know I'll lose all motivation to eventually get a a physical copy which I really want. Ahhhhhh x.x

Just FYI, If you get a physical copy, it may no longer have the code to download the original PC Alice game.
