Summary: Have an 8 and 10 yo at home. Both love this game and have spent hours solving the different levels. Its challanging enough to hold their attention and easy enough they dont get stuck for too long. Recommend this one.
Summary: I also have a Kungfu panda 1 ps3 and Penguins of Madagascar: Dr. Blowhole Returns Again!. but, this game is a bad game for me. Graphics are kind of dirty.very old technique. not clear. No english subtitle. Camera controlling is harsh to eyes. And this game gave me serious motion sick, almost made me puke. My 3years boy loves it, and want me to do this game together. but, I cannot play it more than 10min.
Summary: My whole family loves this game. My daughter is 7 and it is easy enough for her to play, but me and my husband play it with her alot and there are challenging areas too. There are so many different levels to this game. We really got our money's worth!
Good game for young kids...or they might read a book...

Summary: As a fan of Joseph Chilton Pearce (author of The Magical Child) and various other doctors who feel that tv/fast moving images at an early age slow a child's brain development and permanently damages their cortices, I wouldn't recommend any video game for very young kids. But, if you're one of the majority of American parents who see your tv as a babysitter, this is a fairly good game for your sadly neglected kids.
Summary: My daughter and I played the first Madagascar and had a ball. It's nice to see that the second Activision movie tie-in is also lots of fun. Both movie games take the tack of not trying to walk you through the movie but instead focusing on the basic plot elements and wrapping them around fun things to do. In Madagascar 2: Escape from Africa, you take the role of each of the main characters in the movie.
Summary: I picked this up wanting a game that wasn't about killing and fighting and something that young kids (7-10) could both master and enjoy. I'm not disappointed. The game is obviously platformed for kids. It's not too difficult and actually acts as an excellent tutorial on working the controller's many buttons and levers.
