  1. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is a fun platformer, definitely aimed at younger gamers and fans of the series.
  2. Lots of variety and funny cutscenes make the second Madagascar game a good reason to escape to Africa.
  3. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is a great example of a kid’s property done right.
  4. And while the Wii version of this title may not be the absolute best, it does a good job of conveying the fun energy of the movie that inspired it, and kids will love the fun mini-game inspired play.
  5. Not technically brilliant, but fun kids' game packed with a quirky variety of mini challenges. [Feb 2009, p.84]
  6. While most adults may have a hard time finding enjoyment, the game's character and goofy nature makes for a great experience for the younger demographic.
  7. 40
    Storyless, arduous and tedious, it’s essentially a mediocre minigame collection that offers too little context for older fans and too many repetitive challenges for kids.

    I don't know why but it just isn't as fun as the original game its too complicated and at times just boring. In fact the only reason I got this game was because I loved the first game so much. Expand
