  1. 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.
  2. An inspired example of how movie tie-ins should be made.
  3. Breezy and varied, Madagascar is not a game for the ages, but it is consistently diverting.
  4. There’s nothing that’s going to knock your socks off, but enough for your 10 year old to enjoy it at least as a rental.

    The gameplay is simple yet heavily varied, which in turn keeps the action fresh and fun. [Aug 2005, p.98]
  6. Make no mistake, folks: This is a quick cash-in, no matter how you slice it.
  7. It’s a shame that the concept was implemented so poorly, an example of sacrificing quality for mindless movie-licensed mush. With the absolute lack of difficulty and simplistic design, it’s a real wonder as to what Activision was expecting when they unleashed this game upon the masses of unsuspecting gamers.

    This is actually a fun game! The level designs are actually well done. I feel like this was one of the last movie-to-game game that was actually fun..
