Madagascar 3 Europe's Most WantedFans of Gloria, Melman, Alex, Marty, King Julien and the Penguins are in for a real treat with the release of the new Dreamworks Madagascar 3 video game due for release in October. Available for the Wii, 3DS, DS, XBox 360 and PS3, you can enjoy this new game whatever your preferred platform.
Based on the new upcoming animated film, Madagascar 3: The Video Game puts players in the role of their favourite characters in a new and original adventure. The gang travel through Europe with a travelling circus, trying to make their way back to New York by putting on the show of their lives!
The game has a Story Mode and a Circus Mode with mini games. The Circus Mode has become a big favourite with us because all the family can join in. There are games based on the jaw-droppingly skillful acrobatic acts of the big top as well as games based on jobs like ticket sales and selling snacks. There are laughs a plenty as Mason and Phil the monkeys throw fruit at the audience, and seeing Gloria on the tightrope is also very entertaining. The mini games are mostly very easy to control (except the trapeze game which none of us can yet master) and are quick so it's easy to take turns, keeping all the children happy. You also don't lose your life if you get it wrong so it isn't frustrating to younger kids ... if you get something wrong your character will get splatted with bananas or King Julien will make a comment, but you get to continue the game. I like that aspect of this mode. The games really are fun and the circus theme is very appealing.
It is a definite must have for Madagascar fans, and everyone will enjoy the fun of the circus theme.
It is released on October 12th and is available to pre-order now from Amazon and other video game retailers.
