  1. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is a great game for kids, teens, parents…heck…everybody is going to love this game. I literally couldn’t put it down for five hours until I absolutely had to go to bed and then it was the first thing I played when I woke up until I finished it.
  2. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is a fun platformer, definitely aimed at younger gamers and fans of the series.

    Cap that off with a tournament-style four-player option that runs through competitive versions of a selection of the mini-games, and you're looking at a package that's an easy recommendation for gaming families.
  4. 77
    Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is yet another fine example of how to make a game appeal to a younger audience without the expense of good gameplay.
  5. Lots of variety and funny cutscenes make the second Madagascar game a good reason to escape to Africa.

    Madagascar: Escape 2 Afrika
    Actually an Okay Game
    Escape 2 Afrika is a game where mini games meets a collectathon…
    It tells the story of the movie where the madagascare characters esape and then crash land in afrika and you spend the rest of the game collecting parts and monkeys to fix your plane and leave..
    I was surprised with how much I actually enjoyed playing this game…
    The story is delivered through a variety of mini games as you play as nearly every Madagascar character, youll be doing races, stealth games, climbing walls, quick time events at a rave, trying to woo a lady hippo, play musical chairs with lion cubs just to name a few…
    The game does repeat a few mini games.. but the repeat is rare keeping this 5 hour long game feeling fresh and fun throughout…
    though a few mini games like the diving one in particular, are just not fun and I could’ve done without..
    in between the charming story levels dashed with humor, youll be running around the watering hole which is essentially your hub area… this is where the 3d platforming collectathon comes into play as you can switch between the different characters running around collecting monkeys to progress the story…
    100 in total but only 60 needed to beat the game…
    these monkeys also being placed in the different story levels as well…
    It isn’t just a bunch of mini games though.. there are bits of straight up 3d platforming levels here.. some better than others… Alex’s sections being great.. while morts.. not so much… as it felt stiff and unresponsive.. a chore to get through…
    the world and levels are also filled with coins that you can spend on extras like cosmetics and mini games..
    mini games which can be played with up to 4 players like minigolf, or jungle chess…
    the game is pretty hit and miss, but I was having fun most of the time
    This by no means is a gfreat 3d platforming collectathon…
    But its an enjoyable one for all aged that I think is worth running through
    I give Madagascar: Escape 2 Afrika
    a 6/10
