Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (PS3)

  • Excerpt: Thank heavens for Julien the really funny lemur and the always-entertaining penguins, or Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa would not have been worth the effort. Fortunately, they manage to entertain with witty dialog that keep you chuckling while you do generic animated-movie-tie-in platforming things.

Lots of variety and funny cutscenes make the second Madagascar game a good reason to escape to Africa.

  • Summary: While licensed video games have a dubious history, those targeting the younger set have been particularly uninspired. It is a pleasant surprise, then, that Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa not only makes excellent use of its license, but presents a worthwhile game experience as well.
  • Pros: Activities are varied and fun, The characters, especially Julien, are funny, Forgiving controls, Multiplayer mini golf is quite awesome, Good amount of replay value
  • Cons: Too simple for experienced players, Some of the voice actors sound out of place, A few side quests aren't worth playing more than once

  • Conclusion: As we’ve already said then, this is only worth buying for an easily pleased, myopic, die-hard Madagascar fan or if there are no other games available. Buy Kung Fu Panda instead. Can we go now?

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

Playstation Illustrated
1 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is not what I expected when I first popped it into my PS3. History dictates that every holiday movie, or at least the ones aimed at kids, has some sort of movie tie-in game. Most of the time, the game is a platformer and I expected Madagascar 2 to follow suit.

  • Excerpt: Dreamworks has had a solid line-up of animated movies as of late, enough to compete with the big boys at Pixar. But, unfortunately, those successes don't translate into the videogame world.

Recensione Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

Everyeye Network
22 December 2008
  • Summary: Trattandosi di un prodotto chiaramente dedicato ai più piccoli e a chi non ha mai visto un pad in vita sua si può facilmente sorvolare sul bonario livello di difficoltà e la curva d’apprendimento inconsistente, tuttavia non si può giustificare un’esperienza ludica così slegata e superficiale mossa...
