  • Summary: Based on the animated feature film from DreamWorks, Madagascar is the only game that lets players enter the world of four hilarious Central Park Zoo animals - a personality-packed crew made up of a lion, zebra, giraffe and hippo. Players must master each animal's natural skills while adventuring through the exciting city of New York and the dangerous island of Madagascar, interacting with other animals and tackling obstacles and enemies in scenarios from the movie and beyond.

  1. If I had to pick between the Game Boy Advance version and the DS version, I would have to pick this one. It may be $10 more but it has more bells and whistles and looks better.
  2. The length of the gameplay and the replyability makes for an enjoyable game once you get past the sometimes frustrating difficulty and the slightly awkward controls.
  3. Tight tuning and top-notch control put the game in a league with Vicarious Visions's "Shrek 2: Beg for Mercy." [Aug 2005, p.85]
  4. Madagascar is a great deal of fun and is gloriously cute to look at. If you're completely (animal) crackers about the movie, it's just the ticket.
  5. 65
    The effort just doesn't match what's expected out of the system.
  6. Young gamers enamoured with the characters may not even notice and as such will have what they consider a great game on their hands. As long as you like it, it doesn't matter what I think.
  7. So expect no high graphics standard, no special touch screen features, let alone other renewing stuff. Madagascar just brings you a standard platform game that follows the story of the movie. No more, no less.
