Summary: Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa certainly isn't the best game of the year, but it's not a bad game for kids who enjoyed the film series. It features some nice humor, a few fun mini-games and a bunch of multiplayer modes that can actually get pretty competitive. If you're an adult looking for a game, you should probably go with Call of Duty or Fallout 3 before this, but if you're looking for a game for a young child then you could do a lot worse than this game!
Conclusion: It really is quite a good game that families and casual gamers will really enjoy. While you can complete it in under ten hours (arguably five), the achievements will take you much longer. Saying all that, I really enjoyed it and found myself laughing at the jokes and trying my hardest to finish the mini-games. I would recommend this game to anyone who wants an easy-going game that isn’t going to blow your socks off with incredible graphics or mind-blowing difficulty.
Conclusion: Madagascar 2 is a surprisingly fun game. The gameplay may be simple, but the variety of your objectives keeps the game flowing at a brisk pace. The cutscenes are really well done, with the oddball idiosyncrasies of the characters providing a consistent stream of enjoyable humor. And when you're done with the main quest, there is plenty of reason to escape to Africa for a few more hours of entertainment.
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, Durians are a disgusting fruit.
Excerpt: It was right about the time when I found myself playing musical chairs on the plains of the Serengeti that I checked right out of Madagascar 2 . Abandoning all pretense of even the slightest farcical nature of the rather lame original movie, the video game of the sequel leaps right past silly and lands squarely in the land of the absurd. Put another way Say what I will about the gameplay, and I intend to knock it quite a bit, the graphics are quite pretty.
Summary: Es wird mal wieder Zeit! Die Softwareinterpretation eines kinosälefüllenden Animatonsfilms steht in den Startlöchern. Diesmal hat sich Entwickler Activision dem Nachfolger einer der beliebtesten Animationsfilme des Jahres 2005 angenommen, Madagascar 2. Wie uns die Vergangenheit gezeigt hat, parkten besagte Titel immer am unteren Sektor unserer Wetungsskala.
Pros: +Stimmung des Films gut eingefangen, +Ansehliche Synchronisattion, +Original Filmausschnitte, -Zu kurz (6 Stunden), -Die Konsole kann grafisch mehr, -Kann auf Dauer einfach nicht fesseln, -Für Core-Gamer viel zu simpel
