Default The save / checkpoint system sucks

Ill start off the whining thread lol.... this should have been like the original alice (1 auto save created by the game) and manual saves created by the player...

some of these are downright mean

while [SPOILER]retrieving the hatters arms[/SPOILER] i start off outside, turn the valve to hop some vents, fight some enemies, go inside, go through a series of platforming jumps, freeze some hot liquid, more jumps, more bad guys, collected 2 bottles along the way, jump down to the next level die.... game starts me off back outside... i knew nightmare would be a challenge but this is frustrating...

oh well back to work

EDIT.. fail i didnt know there wasnt spoiler tags -__-

Fail on your spoiler can be remedied quickly, it's done different on these forums compared to others. It should be, using ( ) in the place of [ ] for example to be seen.

(spoiler=tag)Text goes here(/spoiler)

Just replace the above ( ) with [ ] and...

I don't find the checkpoints to be that bad. Then again, I'm on normal and have died twice but it's manageable.

I'm playing on normal too, I've died a few times from falling (I tend to misjudge distances.)

and so far only died once in a fight, cuz those damn eyepots surrounded me... >_<

at least this game is (so far) easier than the first one, cuz I swear to God the first one had me about ready to bust a hole in the wall it was so frustrating at points.

to anyone playing the DLC, here's a hint: save often. cuz if u die, u have to restart from your last save. and u will die. A LOT. especially if u play on anything higher than easy.

American McGee's Alice is unforgiving...

anyways, back on topic, the checkpoints ain't that bad. I think they're placed in pretty obvious spots.

They're generous with the falling and placing you back where you were with no damage penalty. I stopped rushing like an asshole and it works out pretty good now I'm halfway through chapter two

I can't wait to start playing the actual Alice game. LOL I'm still on the first Alice.

The checkpoint system isn't too bad. As was mentioned, they're really generous for accidental falls when doing platforming. It isn't like this is World at War on veteran or anything, it's easy to get back to where you were if you do die.

I just came to whine about the same thing. I hate how, for example, if you miss a jump going from platform to platform to get a lever and get through the room it respawns you before the jump. But once you get through the room and fight the enemies at the end and die it starts you over before ALL of the jumps.

I'm really enjoying this game and having fun playing it, but this one small detail is really getting on my nerves.

Actually, the checkpoint system is really bad and it isn't in regards to falling etc. It is true if you fall during a platforming sequence you usually start right where you died. However, I'm at a major battle in the first Chapter and it is kicking my butt. each time I die, I have to do all the platforming events before it over again.
