  1. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is a fun platformer, definitely aimed at younger gamers and fans of the series.
  2. Madagascar 2: Escape 2 Africa feels like a never ending assault on the gameplay senses. The game has you constantly moving from one game to another as the story keeps progressing. While the variety of the gameplay is great the actual game itself doesn’t offer anything truly innovative or spectacular. Yet for those that crave variety Madagascar 2 might just be the game for you.
  3. Lots of variety and funny cutscenes make the second Madagascar game a good reason to escape to Africa.
  4. There are, of course, issues with the title, but they are so small that it won’t matter to the player it is designed for. Heck, even those that are an older audience will have a hard time faulting the game, for its presentation and scope of gameplay are quite nice.
  5. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is another movie cash-in.

    The best thing I can say about Escape is that nothing seems broken or fundamentally flawed, but that's not saying much. No matter how you look at it, Escape 2 Africa just isn't a good game.
  7. It's a ridiculously easy game, and doesn't take a whole lot of time to finish off the single player mode. While I do appreciate that the mini-games are somewhat fresh and definitely varied, they're hardly going to keep anyone's attention for very long, even the younger players that this might appeal to.
  8. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa's many and varied minigames manage to avoid falling into the pit that's usually reserved for license games, and actually delivers an enjoyable experience for both parents and kids.

    Everything from the ideas to the backdrops feels rushed. [Feb 2009, p.100]
  10. An enjoyable and surreal set of mini-games that should appeal to the game's target audience.
  11. Having experienced every facet of Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, it becomes readily apparent that its essence as a platformer has been haphazardly mashed together with a party game.
  12. Madagascar 2 is neither a good game, nor a learning experience for your young one. Chances are, your kid's capable of playing something more advanced than Madagascar 2, because this is about as simplistic as it can get.
  13. This is one game that isn’t getting off the runway anytime soon.
