If a movie franchise has made it to three releases you can be sure they are connecting with audiences pretty well. Which made it no surprise that testers gravitated to and were excited to play with this new title based on the third (and probably not last) Madagascar movie. The graphics are brilliant and jump off the screen with stunning imagery. Kids were enthralled to be able to play with the lemur and his funny voice. The special effects when the gang visits the European Circus are really great. Lots of laughs were had while playing with the giraffe as he tried to navigate the tightrope. All in all this video games delivers on all fronts, it is entertaining, fun and well made. Along the way children's minds are stimulated while their concentration, focus, attention, imagination and problem solving skills were constantly engaged.
