Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is a fun platformer, definitely aimed at younger gamers and fans of the series. It’s a charming, quirky, and ultimately fun game.

Ni bon ni mauvais, Madagascar 2 souffre d’un manque d’envergure flagrant. Du fait d’une durée de vie et d’une difficulté réduites, le titre se destine essentiellement aux plus jeunes fans des films.

Game Chronicles
Regardless, this game is good, relaxing fun. If you're a big fan of the movies and are looking to spend a little more time in that world, by all means go ahead and buy it. And certainly if your children want it, rest assured they will get more fun from it than from most of the tie-in products they have. Many of the minigames have a multiplayer mode (accessible from the main menu), so that's even more replay value. On the other hand, if you just thought you "might poke around and check out what people are saying about the game because it looks like it might be sort of fun," you're probably better off saving your cash towards a more highly regarded classic title instead.

Though functionality isn’t one of its strong points, the game’s major saving graces are its humorous cutscenes and voiceover work, namely that of Julien. The variety of challenges offered in story mode will keep kids busy for weeks. While Escape 2 Africa is not altogether innovative and it is obvious the game was designed to work better on the Wii, it does have its moments of fun and can be very entertaining at times. And when it comes to a children’s title, what more can you really ask for?

Sans être réellement mauvais, Madagascar 2 est loin d'être convaincant. Vous y trouverez une succession d'activités qui n'ont pas toujours de rapport avec le scénario du film mais qui s'appuient tout de même sur les caractères et les spécificités des différents personnages. Ce jeu est donc destiné aux plus jeunes qui accrochent à l'univers doucement décalé de Madagascar.

I suppose a young gamer might get a kick out of this one if he or she is really into the Madagascar movies, but the bland gameplay and awkward structure do very little to provide an enjoyable experience. The best thing I can say about Escape is that nothing seems broken or fundamentally flawed, but that's not saying much. No matter how you look at it, Escape 2 Africa just isn't a good game. You'd be better served by diverting your attention to the virtually countless, fantastic titles that have hit retail in the last few months. Leave Alex and co. on the shelf.

Wenn sich ein elfjähriges Kind ein Spiel wie Madagascar 2 nicht einmal zu Weihnachten wünschen würde, ist irgendwas im Entwicklungsprozess schief gelaufen. Dabei hat sich das Toys for Bob-Team eigentlich haarklein an die ominöse „Was macht ein Lizenzspiel zum Erfolg?“-Liste gehalten. Minispiele, Hüpf-Sequenzen, liebenswerte Charaktere, Humor, Renn-Einlagen: Alles da. Aber auch wieder nicht. Denn um den Erfolg nicht nur jedes einzelnen dieser Elemente, sondern vor allem die homogene Verbindung des Ganzen sicherzustellen, fehlen wesentliche Bestandteile: Enthusiasmus, Konzept, Seele. Dass dies sogar der eigentlichen Zielgruppe auffällt, die sich alternativ lieber wieder dem Kung Fu Panda widmet, die Wall-E-Disc einlegt oder den älteren Cars- und Findet Nemo-Versoftungen den Vorzug gibt, sagt alles. Und das, obwohl einige der auch separat wählbaren Minispiele ein gewisses, zumindest kurzfristiges Unterhaltungspotenzial haben.
