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.
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. Despite using different voice actors than the movie, the cutscenes capture the essence of the characters quite well, providing a continual string of well-constructed and downright funny moments.

Excerpt: Movie based games have been around almost as long as video games have been made. The earliest example I can think of is E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial for the Atari 2600. It’s kind of ironic how a game based on a movie can also be credited to causing the infamous video game crash of 1983. (Insert your own New Mexico landfill joke here.) You might think that game companies would reconsider making tie-in games.
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
Conclusion: Det finns två typer av människor. De som älskade Dreamworks Madagaskar och de som föredrog Disney-filmen Vilddjuren. Vi har förstås också den tredje Riddar Kato-kategorin som inte gillar animerat överhuvudtaget, men flyter det cement i ådrorna så har ingenting i det mänskliga släktträdet att göra.
Pros: God variation, lättspelat, bra knapprecision
