  1. The most challenging levels though are the ones that get all Splinter Cell-ish on you. Even though you don't don Sam Fisher's trademark goggles, the gameplay is similar.
  2. The variety of gameplay types is considerably higher than most action/adventures, let alone games with a movie license attached.
  3. The major problem with that idea is that later in the game the platforming and strategy elements can become quite difficult and children may feel it is out of their grasp.

    Even though it's ultimately unremarkable for a platformer, it's at least a solid effort.
  5. Nintendo Power

    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]
  6. By no means a terrible game, Madagascar is nothing more than a little above average. The only reason I even credit it with that is because I really enjoyed it for an hour. After that, the sloppiness just becomes too much to bear.

    Very typical platformer, doesn't have great responsiveness nor is it very imaginative in any regard. There's not too much bad to say about it,Very typical platformer, doesn't have great responsiveness nor is it very imaginative in any regard. There's not too much bad to say about it, but there's also not much good to say either. Full Review »
