This is going to be short. Madagascar 2 (the game, not the movie) is just average. There is nothing in the game to excite the regular gamer – it’s a bunch of mini-games and is designed to make additional money from the movie franchise (which happens to debut in New Zealand on the 12th of December).
Having said that, I do imagine my 5 year old son will be begging me to play it once he has seen the movie. That is the appeal of these games I guess: they extend the pleasure for the kids.
Conclusion: harmless, pointless fun. Hard to see why you’d spend close to $100 on the game unless you have a hard-core King Julian fan in the house.
