How's a girl supposed to protect herself from the twisted and deadly inhabitants of Wonderland? By slipping into the powerful and stylish combat mode Spicy Horse has dubbed Hysteria.

Hysteria mode functions similarly to the original Alice's Ragebox item, which endowed her with super-human strength. Hysteria mode is enabled when Alice is on the brink of death, and will greatly enhance your attack power, giving you one last chance to defeat your enemies.

Alice: Madness Returns takes place 11 years after the first game, with a still-troubled Alice living in London and trying to get over the death of her parents. Despite the help of her psychiatrist, Alice begins reliving repressed memories that threaten her sanity. These segments feature an even more twisted Wonderland than the first game, which is where Hysteria mode will probably come in handy.
