I feel like this game is VERY inappropriate for children and teaching them bad habits. Furry's are illegal in the state of america and all over the world and this is making kids turn furry all over the world. We shouldnt let this hit public stores and should be removed from all platforms. This game is also very racist in the fact that the zebra sounds like a black guy when it would make more sense for him to sound Mexican, i mean hes a mix of black and white, how hard is it to get a Mexican voice actor. And where's moto moto? its not a madagascar movie without moto moto

Is It Any Good?

Madagascar 3: The Video Game is designed to be enjoyable for little kids. There is no sense of "death" in the game. If players fail, they simply re-appear at an earlier point in the level. In addition, voice-over dialogue constantly provides help and guides players in the right direction. The addition of a two-player mode in which players can navigate the levels independently and help one another is a nice touch. The mini-games are also fun and help to break up the sometimes repetitive platform-jumping levels. Older players will likely find a lack of challenge in this game, but for the young target audience of the Madagascar franchise, the presence of familiar characters, the ease of play, and the varied gameplay will be an enjoyable experience.
