Madison can never remember Madagascar, so we call it “I like to move it, move it” in my house. My kids love both of the Madagascar movies (heck, my husband and I love them too — the penguins are my personal favorite). For us, it was a naturally progression to get the Wii game (since we have done this with several other movies we have seen). The first thing I love is that it is rated E for Everyone. Why is this important? We have had kid's games rated higher than that even though they are based on little kid movies. If it rated any higher, Madison has a tendency to not be able to play it which is just too frustrating for everyone in this house. The graphics do the characters justice too. The main game is a single player game. However, there are several minigames also, and those tended to be two players. I love that this actually easy enough for a four year old to play (hot potato and musical chairs were a hit here) and still hard enough for adults. You also are able to pick your favorite player to play with too be it Alex or Marty or even the penguins. Each character actually has their own unique abilities (Melman has healing powers), combat skills (Marty has a powerful kick), and special moves (Alex can zip down vines). This is truly a fun game to play, and if you don't have a wii, you are able to get this game on DS, PSP, XBox, Playstation and PS2 also.
