The Penguins of Madagascar: Dr. Blowhole Returns Again! (Wii) is an enjoyable puzzle-solving adventure with some humorous dialogue. With the exception of the hidden coloring pages, however, it feels like it could have been just as much fun if it were presented as a game with standard Wii controls. The uDraw controls feel layered on, rather than a natural fit for the game. But at least they don't detract from it. The game, which requires you to swap characters frequently and puzzle your way around various different obstacles, offers a good time either way.
