  1. An outstanding game. The concept is not entirely original, but it is definitely fun.
  2. Undoubtedly a fun little platformer. The game boasts respectable gameplay, and an impressive audio-visual combination, as well as a comical plot from the folks at Dreamworks. There’s plenty to do in the levels, and plenty to unlock for a second play through.
  3. Artfully designed for a young audience, Madagascar will keep kids constantly entertained by serving up a wide variety of fun activities. The amusing movie characters and dialogue also ensure plenty of giggles.
  4. I am disappointed that this version got so poorly ported over from the PS2 version, and it should at the very least recommend the use of a game controller on the box, but ultimately it was a fun children's game that my son very easily picked up and enjoyed.
  5. There’s a nice sense of humor to the game that adults and children will enjoy.

    Here, kids get varied and frequently updated missions goals and plenty of welcome help. [Sept 2005, p.98]

    Does a better job than most adaptations of reviving the energy and excitement of its source material. Just don't expect it to do so for very long. [Sept 2005, p.63]

    Идеальная аркада!
    Абсолютно все элементы присущие этому жанру, тут выполнены на высшем уровне.
    Локации, мини-игры, сюжет (который немного расходится с оригиналом), боссы... Всё прекрасно.
    Однозначный шедевр среди аркад, да и просто одна из моих любимых игр!

I booted it up just to try out for a few minutes before dinner and couldn't put it down for an hour. The characters have heaps of personality, the voice acting is great, and the animation and modeling is good, and everything looks pretty. Even the mini games were fun - in fact, the first one, with 3d tanks, happens to be one of my favourite oldies of all time ... it's a marioesque game, IE collecting things, jumping etc, but if you like that style of game, it's magic.
