  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. 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.
  5. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is another movie cash-in.
  6. 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.
  7. Everything from the ideas to the backdrops feels rushed. [Feb 2009, p.100]
